While the resurrected Guns N' Roses have added more
dates to their overseas jaunt this summer, fans should beware of a
bogus story going around that the band is soon touring with Stone
Temple Pilots, Buckcherry, and Filter.

Meanwhile, GNR are now listing the giant Roskilde festival in
Denmark on June 28 as the last confirmed date on their itinerary,
although they are expected to stay over for more shows in July.
Roskilde, of course, was the scene of nine fan deaths last year
during Pearl Jam's set at that festival. GNR had a similar
experience at the Donnington festival in 1988.

concert. Tickets for the first show sold out in short order.
