28 photos of GUNS N' ROSES' December 11, 2009 concert in Taipei, Taiwan — marking the band's first performance in support of "Chinese Democracy" — can be found at HankDPhoto.com.GUNS N' ROSES completed a four-date tour of Asia in December and is slated to launch a Canadian tour later this month. The band has not booked any U.S. dates yet. GUNS N' ROSES' last world tour, in 2006 and 2007, took in 60 shows in 26 countries and was the band's first full tour since 1993. In addition to sole original member Rose, the current lineup of the band includes guitarists DJ Ashba, Ron Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer. GUNS N' ROSES' latest album, "Chinese Democracy", was released in November 2008 as a Best Buy exclusive, 17 years after the last all-original GUNS sets, "Use Your Illusion I" and "II". The album was a commercial disappointment, selling less than one million copies in the U.S. (according to Nielsen SoundScan) despite the long wait. An amateur/audience recording of GUNS N' ROSES's December 19, 2009 concert in Tokyo, Japan is available for streaming at the GN'R fan site NewGNR.com. According to a Twitter message by GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, GN'R's Tokyo show was the band's longest performance ever at three hours and 37 minutes.
