Guns N' Roses are set to tour the UK
Date Posted: 27/02/12
Unpredictable rock star Axl Rose is set to bring his legendary band, Guns N' Roses, to the O2 Arena as part of the group's UK tour.
Fans booking hotels near the O2 Arena on Thursday, May 31st will get to experience the dramatic finale of the seven date excursion to the British Isles.
The tour begins on Saturday, May 19th at the Nottingham Arena. The band then plays Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester before finishing in London.
Guns N' Roses coincided the tour with their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an honour that they received as soon as they became eligible.
The criterion is that an act can only be inaugurated 25 years after they release their first record.
The band rose to fame with their illustrious album Appetite for Destruction. The record has been certified platinum 18 times by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) after selling 28 million copies worldwide.
