Guns N' Roses tour to start in New York

A Guns N' Roses tour is set to start in New York this year before travelling down the north-east of the US.

Confirmed gigs include three in the Big Apple at the Roseland Ballroom, Terminal 5 and Webster Hall, before one in Chicago's House of Blues, Silver Spring's The Fillmore Silver Spring and the House of Blues in Atlantic City.

The series of shows will start next week on February 10th and continue throughout the month, with one particular date standing out as symbolic.

On February 15th, the band will be turning back to time when they take over New York's Webster Hall.

The venue was once called the Ritz and a video of a live concert by the group filmed by MTV has become a bootleg favourite.

Fans hoping for a Guns N' Roses reunion may be pleased to see the new line-up will be honouring the band's previous success by rebranding Webster Hall for the evening.

The group "will celebrate their return by reclaiming the venue as The Ritz with signage and the name appearing on the marquee", it was announced on their website.

It was also recently confirmed Guns N' Roses will be playing in Dublin and Italy in May.
