Once one of the early 90’s most dysfunctional bands, the latest Guns ‘N Roses reunion tour looks like it’s in the long haul. Following the success of “Not In This Lifetime”, the quintet has announced an additional 14 tour dates this fall. While the first leg of the tour focused on stadiums, the fall leg will see the band in the more “intimate” setting of arenas.
The stretch begins October 8th at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center and sees the band blaze through some of east’s most iconic venues including 2 stops at Madison Square Garden, the TD Garden in Boston and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. After a quick mid-west swing including Chicago’s United Center and the brand new Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit, the band will conclude the tour on their familiar West Coast including the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Oakland’s ORACLE Arena and two tour finale shows in GnR’s home town of Los Angeles at the Staples Center and The Forum.
The tour has already been flooded with opening acts as diverse as The Darkness and The Kills to The Pretenders and The Killing Joke, and the new leg is no different. They’ll be joined by bands such as Deftones, Live, ZZ Top and Royal Blood on the newly announced leg.
Looking at the secondary market, TicketIQ says the average asking price for the Fall Leg is $329. Quicken Loans Arena on October 26th is the cheapest of the trek with an average asking price of $259 and cheapest available ticket of $81. Conversely, the October 11th stop at Madison Square Garden is the tour’s most expensive date. The average ticket price is $458 with the cheapest resale ticket listed for $88. With the exception of the Air Canada Centre on October 29th, all the new tour dates have a “get-in” price below $100.
