One of the greatest rock bands of all time is back with the most anticipated tour of 2012. After selling out arenas around the globe in 2011, Guns N' Roses ' 'the most dangerous band in the world' - are storming the UK this Spring.

In a career spanning more than two decades, Guns N' Roses have become one of the biggest bands, not only in the world, but in musical (and more importantly, rock 'n' roll) history. They have sold over 100 million albums worldwide and are considered one of the most influential rock bands the world has ever seen.
After rising to fame in the late 80's and gaining worldwide recognition with their hit single Sweet Child of Mine in 1988, the band went on to release five albums including the double Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II which was the first in history to walk off with both top spots on the Billboard chart. VHI has also named Welcome to the Jungle 'Best Hard Rock Song' - a fitting accolade for such a rock anthem. Guns N' Roses' most recent release, and fifth studio album, Chinese Democracy went straight to the top of the charts in thirteen countries, as well as going platinum in 15.
The band's live shows are always hotly anticipated and demand for tickets is never less than overwhelming, showing that their longevity in the spotlight is by no mistake and is very-much deserved. Don't miss your change to witness the legendary Axl Rose and co live in the UK.
