Roses will play two shows at the Joint at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las
Vegas on December 29th and 31st. The band played the same venue last
year on New Year's Eve, marking their first performance in seven
years and kicking off a year that saw them play the Brazilian
festival Rock in Rio to rave reviews.
"We've been cooped up in the studio for so long, that we have to
release some energy," singer Axl Rose posted on Guns' Official Web
site. "Since we had so much fun playing Vegas last year, we've
decided to do it again."
Tickets for the show go on sale December 8th at 3 p.m. (ET).
GN'R now consist of Rose, Dizzy Reed and the Replicants' Chris
Pitman on keyboards, ex-Replacement Tommy Stinson on bass, Primus'
Brian "Brain" Manita on drums, and Paul Tobias, Nine Inch Nails'
Robin Finck and Buckethead on guitars.
For the past few years, the band has working on and off on
Chinese Democracy, the excruciatingly long-awaited follow-up
to the 1991 dual albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your
Illusion II. CHRISTINA
