Chris Schulz of Stuff.co.nz reports that GUNS N' ROSES have announced show in Auckland, New Zealand in June.
The "Chinese Democracy World Tour" is scheduled to play Auckland's Vector Arena on Friday, June 29.
It's the first time New Zealand fans will have the chance to see GUNS N' ROSES since a huge show in 1993 at Mt. Smart Stadium in front of 52,000 people.
In 2006, GUNS N' ROSES performed more than 70 concerts, but failed to release the long-awaited new album, "Chinese Democracy". It is slated for release later this year.
Only two original members are left in the band since their mid-'90 glory days: Frontman Axl Rose and keyboardist Dizzy Reed.
The new members are guitarists Robin Finck, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboard player Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
Former SKID ROW frontman SEBASTIAN BACH and Australia's ROSE TATTOO will open the band's Auckland show.
Tickets go on sale Monday, April 30 through Ticketmaster.co.nz.
