SoFi Stadium is the result of a $5 billion Hollywood Park investment. Located along South Prairie Avenue, between West Manchester Boulevard and West Century Boulevard, the stadium will host country stars Taylor Swift and Kenny Chesney are set to perform at the stadium prior to GNR’s show.
Though Guns ‘N Roses solidified their legacy long ago, frontman Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan announced a reunion tour back in 2016, and have played more than 150 shows around the world since. The band announced plans to work on a new album in February of 2019, but no official release date of any new music has been announced.
