Guns N' Roses Ante Up For Another New Year's Eve In Vegas


Axl Rose  
New Year's Eve might as well be Guns N' Roses Day. In Las Vegas, anyway.

When January 1, 2002, hits, Axl Rose's band will have played four shows in the last eight years three of them in Sin City and two of them on New Year's Eve.

Guns N' Roses announced Tuesday (December 4) they will play two shows at the Joint in Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on December 29 and 31. Tickets, which range from $162.50 to $275, go on sale Saturday at noon PT at all Ticketmaster outlets, according to promoters.

"We've been cooped up in the studio for so long that we have to release some energy," Rose said in posting on the band's Web site. "Since we had so much fun playing Vegas last year, we've decided to do it again."

GN'R played their first show in more than seven years last New Year's Eve at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, where they performed new material from the long-awaited Chinese Democracy album along with classics like "Welcome to the Jungle" and "November Rain" (see "Rose's New Guns Unveiled In Vegas").

Rose and crew followed by headlining the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in mid-January and then announcing a European tour that was later canceled, rescheduled, and canceled again (see "Guns N' Roses Cancel European Tour Again").

The band's management did not return phone calls Tuesday.
