GUNS N' ROSES To Play Secret Show In New York City? - Feb. 11, 2010
According to the New York Post, GUNS N' ROSES will play a surprise show at New York City's Rose Bar in front of a scant and ultra-famous crowd of only 100 people as part of Fashion Week, which kicks off today.
GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose took to both Twitter and a fan message board to hint at some possible "surprise gigs," but offered no further details.
GUNS N' ROSES has already announced a new set of South American dates, beginning on March 7 in Brazil and ending on April 1 in Ecuador.
The band completed a four-date tour of Asia in December and a Canadian tour earlier this month.
GUNS N' ROSES' last world tour, in 2006 and 2007, took in 60 shows in 26 countries and was the band's first full tour since 1993.
In addition to sole original member Rose, the current lineup of the band includes guitarists DJ Ashba, Ron Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
GUNS N' ROSES' latest album, "Chinese Democracy", was released in November 2008 as a Best Buy exclusive, 17 years after the last all-original GUNS sets, "Use Your Illusion I" and "II". The album was a commercial disappointment, selling less than one million copies in the U.S. (according to Nielsen SoundScan) despite the long wait.
