SLASH Says GUNS N’ ROSES’ Reunion Tour Was ‘Initially Just Going To Be A Couple Of Shows’

According to Slash, the Guns N' Roses reunion was initially supposed to only be a handful of shows.

GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash recently spoke with CNN about the reunion tour with the group and how the great relationship he, singer Axl Rose and the other bandmembers have is what keeps it going for the most part.

“When we got back together, that whole chemistry and that thing that makes what GUNS N’ ROSES is for me and Axl and Duff [McKagan, bass], it all just sort of came together,” Slash said. “After that long a period of time, we’d sort of forgotten what that was like.

“Everybody got along great,” he added. “That’s actually why the tour has kept going, because initially it was just going to be a couple of shows.”

GUNS launched their long-awaited reunion tour back in April 2016 at a club show in Hollywood, California at the Whisky A Go-Go.

GUNS N’ ROSES’ reunion tour features classic-lineup members Slash, McKagan and Rose backed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and second keyboardist Melissa Reese.

The “Not In This Lifetime” reunion trek went on to become the No. 3 highest-grossing tour in the history of Billboard Boxscore.
