Guns N’ Roses extends bestselling reunion tour, stopping at Hersheypark Stadium on Aug. 13
From a press release:
The resurgent Guns N’ Roses and their massively successful Not in This Lifetime Tour continue to show no signs of slowing down as the legendary rock band storms into 2017 with more than 30 stadium shows lined up across Europe and North America. Starting on May 27 at Dublin’s Slane Castle, the Live Nation-produced tour will then steamroll across the United Kingdom, Europe, and North America, including a stop at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey on Sunday, Aug. 13.
Tickets, which range from $35 to $250, go on sale this Saturday, Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. and will be available at the Giant Center box office (550 Hersheypark Dr., Hershey), online at hersheyentertainment.com and ticketmaster.com, through all Ticketmaster outlets, and by phone at 800-745-3000. Exclusive Guns N’ Roses VIP packages will be available at vipnation.com.
The Not in This Lifetime Tour has sold over two million tickets throughout 2016 to become the year’s most successful rock tour, proving beyond a doubt that the attitude, spirit, and influence of both Guns N’ Roses and the rock ‘n’ roll genre are as strong as ever. The history-making tour, which visited 21 cities (25 shows) in less than two months, wrapped the first North America leg last summer before setting its eyes on South America. In South America, the band completely sold out all 15 dates of the tour, including 13 stadium dates.
Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. This spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut “Appetite for Destruction,” the bestselling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II” occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release.
Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold-out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified “Chinese Democracy.” With six multi-platinum studio albums, they are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances, connecting with millions of fans across the globe.
Guns N’ Roses are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).
