Guns N’ Roses close North American tour in San Diego

Guns N’ Roses closed out their “Not In This Lifetime” North American tour at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA on Monday.

Hitting the stage half an hour later than scheduled, the group delivered a 26-song set that included the second tour appearance of two rarities: “Used To Love Her” from 1988’s “G N’ R Lies” and “There Was A Time” from 2008’s “Chinese Democracy.”

The trek has seen the reunited trio of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan perform material from the band’s legendary albums, including 1987’s smash “Appetite For Destruction” – the biggest selling debut album of all time with more than 30 million copies sold worldwide.

The band's live lineup is rounded out by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese.

Guns N’ Roses will next launch a series of South American shows in Lima, Peru on October 27 and they have just announced a pair of dates in New Zealand in early 2017.

The group will play Westpac Stadium in Wellington on February 2 and Western Springs in Auckland on February 4.

Ticket pre-sales begin August 24, with tickets and VIP packages on sale to the general public on August 31 at 10:00am local time.

The New Zealand dates fall between a series of three shows in Japan in January and the start of an Australian tour in Brisbane on February 7.
