GUNS N' ROSES has announced the special guests appearing on its enduring and monumental "Not In This Lifetime" tour, revving back up on September 25. BISHOP GUNN, BLACKBERRY SMOKE, DIRTY HONEY, Shooter Jennings and TYLER BRYANT & THE SHAKEDOWN will open for GN'R on select dates throughout the fall run.
The legendary group returns to the U.S. later this month — their first time touring the United States in 2019. This includes two nights at Las Vegas's legendary Colosseum at Caesars Palace, their most intimate venue since the 2017 performance at The Apollo Theater. GN'R will also make highly anticipated stops at major festivals, along with two goliath Mexico dates at stadiums in Guadalajara and Tijuana. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com.
In conjunction with the announcement, GN'R has released a video featuring "Not In This Lifetime" special guests alongside some of the incredible names appearing prior to GN'R on their festival dates, including Ice Cube, THE RACONTEURS, DEFTONES and Brandi Carlile. The band will play at Louder Than Life, Austin City Limits, Exit 111 and Voodoo.

GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" tour began in April 2016, and after 159 shows in 41 countries, it played its last date at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 8, 2018.
"Not In This Lifetime" is now believed to be the second-highest-grossing tour of all time, having generated more than $500 million since it began three years ago.
Since the end of the tour last year, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have both returned to solo endeavors.
The "Not In This Lifetime" tour featured classic-lineup members Slash, McKagan and singer Axl Rose backed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
