GN'R to Tour with Van Halen?
SPREADING DEMOCRACY AROUND THE WORLD:
Axl Rose intends to take the current lineup of Guns N’ Roses out on a worldwide stadium tour this summer, industry insiders told rollingstone.com.
"Axl has been basically quiet, keeping out of the limelight for almost 15 years," said Guns manager Irving Azoff in the news item. "People think they know him, but they really only know what has been said about him by questionable people. He is a good guy and often misunderstood — he is a professional who has worked very hard to build and maintain a high creative standard for Guns N’ Roses, which I support. We have some exciting things in the works this year for GN'R, I’m looking forward to it."
Right on the heels of this news come unconfirmed reports about a co-headlining tour with GN'R and fellow LA hard-rock icons Van Halen.
If this pairing comes to pass, we’re betting it’ll move some serious ducats.
