Welcome to ... the nightclub?
Rock band Guns N' Roses, which has played to sold-out crowds at ginormous stadiums for countless tours, is getting intimate with fans. The group announced Monday that it is kicking off a series of shows in February in much smaller venues.
GNR will kick off the tour, currently with six confirmed dates, at New York's Roseland Ballroom (maximum standing capacity of 3,200) on Feb. 10. Among the three New York shows is a gig at the 1,500-capacity Webster Hall, once known as The Ritz, where GNR filmed the MTV concert "Live at the Ritz" in 1988.
The confirmed dates thus far:
- Feb. 10: Roseland Ballroom, New York
- Feb. 12: Terminal 5, New York
- Feb. 15: Webster Hall, New York
- Feb. 19: House of Blues, Chicago
- Feb. 23: The Fillmore, Silver Spring, M.D.
- Feb. 24: House of Blues, Atlantic City
Joining the only remaining original member of the band, Axl Rose, on tour will be DJ Ashba, Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Richard Fortus, Ron Thal, Chris Pitman and Frank Ferrer.
Tickets for the New York shows kick off at 10 a.m. ET on Jan. 31. The last three shows go on sale at 10 a.m. ET on Feb. 1.
