Most recently Guns N’ Roses have announced a slew of arena shows that they are playing this spring. Previously reported here on mxdwn “…Guns ‘N Roses have announced a string of summer 2020 stadium tour dates, adding yet another leg to their reunion tour that began back in 2016. The tour will kick off this July 4th in Milwaukee and conclude on August 26th in Montana.” This summer will see Guns N’ Roses play in Philadelphia’s stadium arena Citizens Bank Park in July. The famed hard rock collective who have over the years recorded six studio albums together are set to reunite illustrating that “These legendary and incredibly influential artists will be performing at Citizens Bank Park, presumably selling out this massive arena.
