Guns N’ Roses is an American rock band, known for its best-selling 1987 release “Appetite for Destruction.” Since its release, the record has been RIAA-certified Diamond and 18x Platinum, selling more than 28 million copies worldwide as of October 2008. The band has gone through various lineup changes, but has always been helmed by the controversial and reclusive Axl Rose.
Guns N’ Roses recently released its first studio album in 15 years, setting off speculation that a long-awaited full-length tour could also be on the horizon. However, the band’s past tours have been spotted by tragedy and controversy. Additionally, Rose’s mercurial nature can make the guarantee for a full performance a gamble. The vocalist has gotten a reputation for a fiery temper on stage (and off), as well as a tendency to walk out on shows when displeased. Despite Rose’s antics, Guns N’ Roses past arena tours have been popular among fans around the world.
