Guns 'n' Roses To Tour Australia
- by Paul Cashmere, April 4 2007

Axl Rose is returning to Australia for the first time in 14 years with his new incarnation of Guns 'n' Roses.

Promoter Paul Dainty has scored the coup for Australia.

The G 'n' R Chinese Democracy tour will play Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth in June.

The tour is hopefully going to mark the release of the long-awaited 'Chinese Democracy' album which is already 8 years overdue. The only track to officially surface from the album was 'End of Days' on the 1999 soundtrack to 'End of Days'.

The Guns 'n' Roses line-up is W. Axl Rose on vocals, guitarists Robin Finck and Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and Richard Fortus, bass player Tommy Stinson, keyboard players Dizzy Reed and Chris Pittman and drummer Frank Ferrer.

Rose has had a revolving door of players for this version of Guns 'n' Roses ever since the original band broke up. Most are know known as Velvet Revolver.

The Australian tour will be a spectacular in its own right with Skid Row's Sebastian Bach and Australia's rock legends Rose Tattoo performing as special guests.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday April 26th.

Dates are:

Sunday 10 June PERTH - Burswood Dome
Wednesday 13 June ADELAIDE - Entertainment Centre
Friday 15 June MELBOURNE - Rod Laver Arena
Wednesday 20 June BRISBANE - Entertainment Centre
Saturday 23 June SYDNEY - Acer Arena





Guns 'n' Roses Tour For Australia Still Going Ahead
- by Paul Cashmere, April 21 2007

New reports overnight that the Australian leg of the Guns 'n' Roses has been indefinitely postponed are incorrect according to promoter Paul Dainty.

Dainty has once again confirmed to Undercover News that reports emanating out of South Africa last night that the Australia and New Zealand Guns 'n' Roses shows have been postponed following yesterday's decision by the band to pull out of South Africa have not been confirmed.

"I spoke with them last night and they did not tell me that," Dainty told Undercover.

Earlier, Japanese dates were postponed after bass player Tommy Stinson fell down a flight of stairs. Guns 'n' Roses postponed their Japanese dates because of the injury and yesterday also put South Africa on hold.

The South African shows were to take place in Johannesburg and Cape Town on April 27 and May 1st. "The South Africa dates are next week," Dainty said. "The Australian dates are still months away".

Guns 'n' Roses are due to start their Australia tour on June 10 in Perth.

Tickets are still scheduled to go on sale at 9am this Thursday April 26.

Sunday 10 June PERTH - Burswood Dome
Wednesday 13 June ADELAIDE - Entertainment Centre
Friday 15 June MELBOURNE - Rod Laver Arena
Wednesday 20 June BRISBANE - Entertainment Centre
Saturday 23 June SYDNEY - Acer Arena
