Four days earlier, GUNS N' ROSES performed at the iconic Hollywood Palladium as part of the Citi Sound Vault series. The concert marked the band's first live appearance of 2019. It was also GUNS N' ROSES' debut performance at the 5,000-capacity venue in nearly a decade.
GUNS N' ROSES' current trek runs through November 2. This leg of the tour will close out with two shows at the The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
"Not in This Lifetime" launched more than three years ago and will continue through the U.S. and play major shows in Mexico including Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara and Estadio Caliente in Tijuana in late October.
In addition, the band will hit up several festivals in the coming weeks, including Austin City Limits, Louder Than Life, Exit 111 and Voodoo.
"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 in April 2016.
Since the end of the 2018 leg of the tour, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan both returned to solo endeavors.
The "Not In This Lifetime" tour features 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.
