GUNS N’ ROSES kicked off its first U.S. tour since 2006 on October 28 in Orlando, Florida.
In addition to sole original member Axl Rose (vocals), the current lineup of GUNS N’ ROSES includes guitarists Ron “Bumblefoiot” Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
“Chinese Democracy”, the 2008 album released by the current edition of GUNS N’ ROSES after a 15-year wait, was officially certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on February 3, 2009 for shipments in the United States in excess of one million copies. The long-in-the-making, 14-song CD finally arrived 17 years after the last full-length collections of original GUNS material, “Use Your Illusion I” and “II”, were released, and nine years after the non-album track “Oh My God” surfaced on the soundtrack of the movie “End Of Days”.
“Chinese Democracy” was made available exclusively through Best Buy.
