Guns N’ Roses have announced an end date for their COVID quarantine, and a start date for this first tour since the coronavirus pandemic shut down live music.
The group posted a virtual concert poster promising new shows down under. “Get.
Ready. Australia & New Zealand, 2021 ⚡” the caption reads, with classic GNR logo and design type emblazoned across the poster. Giant white letter scream out “STADIUM ROCK IS BACK!”
All eight tour dates are scheduled in Australia and New Zealand in November 2021. Check out their website for a full 2021 tour schedule.

Guns’ classic line-up of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan will pick up where their Larger Than Life global stadium tour left off. Like so many bands, the group was forced to cancel all 2020 tour dates due to coronavirus safety restrictions. The guys have spent their quarantine time shredding new music, but a new album has yet to materialize.
Slash talked with Futuro back in April and confirmed new music is on the way. GNR just isn’t sure how it will come together. "There's been so much talk about this Guns N' Roses record, which we haven't actually done anything with," he told the outlet. "So we're gonna sort of focus on that. And then (Myles Kennedy and) the Conspirators will be (recording) some time coming up, depending on what Guns N' Roses is doing. But I've already started putting together material for the new Conspirators record."
While some members have focused on the music, Axl has been throwing his bandana into the political ring. He started a Twitter beef with US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and broadcasted extreme dislike for President Trump.
