Guns N’ Roses confirm Canadian tour date

Guns N’ Roses will be crossing one international border on their upcoming North American tour.

GNR have announced the first Canadian date on the road trip: a Monday, November 28 show at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario (an hour west of Toronto).

Tickets for the Copps show go on sale Saturday, October 29 at 10 AM via Ticketmaster outlets, Copps Coliseum box office or charge by phone at 1-855-985-5000 in Toronto or 1-855-872-5000 in Hamilton.

Area fans should plan on it being a very late evening and prearrange some transportation home, as Axl Rose recently reconfirmed his position on the start time for GNR shows: which is, in a nutshell, whenever Axl feels like it.

"Love it Hate it Accept it Debate it — You want 8 o'clock shows go find F-R-I-E-N-D-S or hit a cinema somewhere…or you wanna be informed go catch the 10-o'clock news.. this is Rock N' Roll!,” read the band’s announcement. “Treat yourself don't cheat yourself thinking you're gonna go to school or work or whatever you 'normally' do the next day. Oh and remember before you get high and never want to come down. 'you can have anything you want but you better not take it from me!' This is Guns N’ Roses and when the time is right the stage will ignite. Looking forward to sharing that with rockers soon!"

The tour is expected to hit 30 cities between its October 28 launch in Orlando and New Year's Eve.
