California hard rock royalty Guns N’ Roses have announced a stadium tour of Australia and New Zealand, including a Perth date at Optus Stadium scheduled on Wednesday, November 24, 2021. With both state and national border closures still in place, it’s fair to say some might consider the announcement a little ambitious.
Show organisers TEG Dainty addressed this when they announced the news this morning, stating “as the first stadium tour announcement since the advent of COVID-19 and border closures pressed pause on touring, it’s fair to say our appetite for live music performances by international megastars has peaked and in Guns N’ Roses we trust!”
“GNR’s 2021 Australia & New Zealand tour is the light at the end of the bleak tunnel we’ve all negotiated this year. All aboard the Nightrain to Paradise City for what promises to be a heaving celebration of the unbreakable human spirit!”
That might not be enough to convince some, but for those that have faith in “Gunners,” tickets go on sale Thursday, November 26.
Guns N’ Roses last came to Perth on their Not In This Lifetime stadium tour in 2017 (pictured above). It marked the first time that Australian fans witnessed Axl, Slash and Duff reunited since 1993’s Use Your Illusion tour and scored a glowing review for their Domain Stadium show.
Guns N’ Roses are scheduled to perform at Optus Stadium on Wednesday, November 24, 2021. Tickets go on sale Thursday, November 26 from TEG Dainty.
