Guns N' Roses are returning to Las Vegas for their second residency at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for nine dates in May and June
Guns N' Roses will perform nine shows in Las Vegas later this year.
Axl Rose and his bandmates have inked a deal with The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to return for a short residency, dubbed 'No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction,' in May and June.
The 'November Rain' rockers, who previously performed a series of concerts titled 'Appetite for Democracy' at the venue in 2012, will take to the stage at The Joint again on May 21, 24, 25, 28, 30, 31, and June 4, 6 and 7, 2014.
Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for concert promoters AEG Live Las Vegas, told USA Today: "If some is good, more is better! That's our take on welcoming back Guns N' Roses (GNR) to The Joint. Our first residency with GNR was fantastic in every way imaginable. The band and the fans loved the venue, and the business was great for everyone else involved. We want all of the Guns N' Roses fans across the globe to come see what one of the iconic rock 'n' roll bands can do when they have the best venue in the world to do it in, in a city made to party. We are gearing up for another epic residency."
Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, added: "What more can I say than it's a great honour to have one of the most iconic rock 'n' roll bands in the world coming back to rock The Joint for nine more shows! We are all excited about this next run."
The band have sold more than 100 million albums globally since 1985 and released their most recent album 'Chinese Democracy' in 2008.
Tickets start at $49.50 and go on sale next Friday (28.02.4).
