Guns N’ Roses stadium tour set to storm Atlanta in August

Four years after last storming Atlanta, Guns N’ Roses returns this summer.

The band is rolling out a U.S. stadium tour that kicks off July 4 in Milwaukee and visits Atlanta Aug. 12 at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public at noon Feb. 7 via Citi cardmembers can access a pre-sale from noon Feb. 4 through 10 p.m. Feb. 6 at

For years, the band garnered a reputation for late, sloppily played shows. But their 2016 “Not in This Lifetime” tour, which hit the now-demolished Georgia Dome, showcased a revitalized Axl Rose. Joining him for this tour are fellow originals Slash and Duff McKagan, as well as longtimers Dizzy Reed (keyboards/piano), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer(drums) and Melissa Reese, who has handled keyboards and synths since 2016.
