GUNS N’ ROSES Returns to Los Angeles for Historic Hollywood Bowl Shows
GUNS N’ ROSES is set to make history this November with a two-night stint at the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. These headlining shows, taking place on November 1 and November 2, will also feature special guest five-time Grammy Award-winning rock icons, THE BLACK KEYS. This marks GUNS N’ ROSES‘ return to L.A. since 2021 and serves as the culmination of their U.S. tour. The band’s extensive 2023 global tour, which includes headlining performances at stadiums and arenas across Europe and North America, will conclude with a headline slot at the Hell & Heaven festival in Mexico City on November 5.
Tickets will be available starting with a Nightrain presale and an American Express presale beginning on Tuesday, October 10. Additional presales will run throughout the week, leading up to the general on-sale on Friday, October 13, at 10 a.m. local time on gunsnroses.com. American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public from Tuesday, October 10, at 10 a.m. local time through Thursday, October 12, at 10 p.m. local time.
In conjunction with these Hollywood Bowl shows, GUNS N’ ROSES has announced a partnership with the Los Angeles County Parks Foundation (LACPF). A portion of the proceeds from every ticket will be donated to the organization, which supports park programs for under-served communities, seniors, and youth, including the development of environmental education programs. Additionally, GUNS N’ ROSES will design a special commemorative t-shirt, with proceeds also contributing to LACPF. This exclusive t-shirt will only be available at the Hollywood Bowl shows.
This two-night engagement at Hollywood’s iconic venue is a homecoming for GUNS N’ ROSES and follows their electric performance at the inaugural Power Trip festival in Indio, California. Over their illustrious career, GUNS N’ ROSES have left their mark throughout Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood to iconic venues like The Troubadour, The Forum, BMO Stadium, Dodgers Stadium, and The Palladium. However, their upcoming shows at the Hollywood Bowl mark the first time the band will grace this historic Hollywood Hills venue. It’s a significant moment and a fitting conclusion to their recent North American tour.
GUNS N’ ROSES‘ current lineup features classic members Axl Rose (vocals), Duff McKagan (bass), and Slash (guitar), supported by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, and second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
GUNS N’ ROSES introduced their new single, “Perhaps“, live for the first time on August 18 at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The song was officially released shortly thereafter, less than a week after a leaked version of the shelved “Chinese Democracy“-era track appeared on TouchTunes machines at various locations.
Much like GUNS N’ ROSES‘ 2021 single “Hard Skool,” “Perhaps” was originally written and recorded during the “Chinese Democracy” sessions, with a rough demo previously surfacing on YouTube.
