|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.
Some Internet sites have quoted a fake interview with GNR guitarist Robin Finck that quotes him telling a radio station that the band is touring the U.S. in July with the three aforementioned bands. Apparantly, the interview never happened and neither will this tour.
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.
The Brit dates, from June 9-14, also now include a second London concert. Tickets for the first show sold out in short order.
The updated GNR tour dates are as follows:
June 1, Nuremberg, Germany, Rock Im Park
June 3, Nurburgring, Germany, Rock Am Ring
June 5, Berlin, Waldbuhne
June 9-10, London, London Arena
June 12, Glasgow, U.K., S.E.C.C.
June 13, Manchester, U.K., Manchester Evening News Arena
June 14, Birmingham, U.K., NEC Arena
June 17, Imola, Italy, Heineken Jammin Festival
June 19, Malaga, Spain, Plaza De Toros
June 20, Barcelona, Spain, Palau Sant Jordi
June 23, Arnhem, Netherlands, Gelredome
June 25, Stockholm, Stockholm Globe Arena
June 26, Oslo, Norway, Oslo Spektrum
June 28, Roskilde, Denmark, Roskilde Festival
