|Guns N' Roses have finally nailed down a long-rumored London date for Aug. 26 at the London Arena, according to a spokesperson for the venue.
Tickets for the show, priced at approximately $43, go on sale Wednesday (July 17) through Ticketmaster U.K. The show marks the fifth confirmed date for the band this summer, including headlining spots at Japan's Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo and Osaka on Aug. 17-18, the Leeds Carling Weekend in Leeds, England, on Aug. 23, and the Pukkelpop Festival in Hasselt, Belgium, on Aug. 24.
Guns N' Roses last live shows were Dec. 29 and Dec. 31, 2001 in Las Vegas. Despite the flurry of live activity, however, there was still no word at press time as to a release date for Chinese Democracy, the band's long-awaited new album.
