Last week Guns N Roses began teasing North American fans again with subtle hints of a potential tour in 2017 as well. Axl, Slash, and Duff are currently down in South and Central America as they wrap this part of their Not In This Lifetime Tour.
Early in 2017 they’ll be heading to Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Southeast Asia, and Dubai and running until March. That leaves their spring and summer 2017 schedules open to pencil in additional North American dates for cities that didn’t get stadium shows in 2016.
Promo videos began running on television stations over the long Thanksgiving weekend along with billboards popping up in places like El Paso, TX, Minneapolis, MN, Vancouver & Montreal, Canada and Lancaster, PA among other places.
Last week this video arrived on their YouTube channel proclaiming Guns N’ Roses – #GnFnR2017 … The Machine Is Back At It! It looks like after a year-long reconciliation on the road, the band are back to their old ways of touring like a machine.
Time to ask Santa for those Ticketmaster gift cards kiddos! Save up those 2017 vacation days because all evidence points to a 2017 North American arena tour for Guns N Roses.
Have you seen a billboard pop up in your city? Send us a photo of it in the comments below. Share your memories of seeing Guns N Roses in the past or your excitement for these potential 2017 shows.
Life On The Scene has enjoyed Slash & Duff in their side projects like Velvet Revolver, Loaded, Camp Freddy and other charitable events over the years so here are a few photos to tide you over.
Duran Duran are set to return to the stage with a number of tour dates set for May this year. The British band have revealed 11 dates where they will be performing across the UK. It’s the bands first tour of their homeland in a few years and looks to be a sellout. Fan club pre-sales begin later this week via the bands site.
The band featuring Simon le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor will begin their worldwide tour with a handful of special performances in the USA including the The VH1 Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam on February 3rd, in Grand Prairie, TX and the famous Southern California Coachella festival on April 17, 2011.
Duran Durans new album is called All You Need Is Now (produced by Mark Ronson) and is available now on iTunes. An extended edition physical CD is expected in March 2011. The 80’s hitmakers still have a massive fan base and have remained popular through the decades with great albums like the Wedding Album in the mid 90’s with the massive hit Ordinary World and more recently with the Astronaut album. Their new album All You Need Is Now looks destined to be another of their smash successes craftily blending sounds that could easily have come from their early hit album Rio while incorporating a modern twist to the music.
The full dates are as follows:
- 18th May 2011 Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
- 19th May 2011 Glasgow SECC
- 21st May 2011 Birmingham LG Arena
- 22nd May 2011 Nottingham Capital FM Arena
- 23rd May 2011 Liverpool Echo Arena
- 28th May 2011 London The O2 Arena
- 30th May 2011 Brighton Centre
- 31st May 2011 Bournemouth International Centre
- 1st June 2011 Cardiff International Arena
- 3rd June 2011 Manchester MEN Arena
- 4th June 2011 Sheffield Motorpoint Arena
LONG BEACH – The stands were filled with cheering tweens & teenage girls as the Jonas Brothers each went up to bat in the final Road Dogs game of the season in Blair Field on Sunday (the game was moved from Irvine).
During the game, a couple thousand fans joined the brothers in pledging not to text while driving or by designating someone to answer the phone while the car is in motion by adding their thumbprint to a banner promoting “X The Text” sponsored by Allstate insurance.
The brothers said they chose to support the campaign to help raise awareness of this killer on the rise. Recent statistics show that:
‐ Teens crash four times more often than any other age group
‐ Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens
‐ Texting and driving can increase your risk of crashing by 23 times
‐ Reaching for a phone while driving increases your risk of a crash by nine times
‐ Texting takes our eyes off the road for an average of 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that’s driving the length of a football field – completely blind.
‐ Behind the wheel, one text while driving equals four beers
The Road Dogs won 15-7 against the Marquis Jet Flyers on Sunday, pulling in the win for the season and delighting their fans. Fans cheered on from the stands as the Jonas brothers were presented with the trophy for the winning season.
