Guns N’ Roses Name The Cult, Billy Talent + More Openers for Summer 2016 Tour
Guns N' Roses recently revealed that Alice in Chains and Lenny Kravitz would open select dates for their summer "Not in This Lifetime" tour, but there were still plenty of shows that didn't have an opener. The iconic rockers just filled in the blanks on a number of dates, though still not all shows have a named opener.
The veteran rockers are keeping it eclectic on tour this summer. In Nashville on July 9, the band will have country's newest superstar Chris Stapleton open their show at Nissan Stadium. One of Canada's top rock acts, Billy Talent, will open the group's July 16 date at Toronto's Rogers Centre.
The Cult get opening honors for four shows running July 27-Aug. 3. Those stops are Atlanta's Georgia Dome (July 27), Orlando's Citrus Bowl (July 29), New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome (July 31) and Arlington, Texas' AT&T Stadium (Aug. 3). The next stop on the tour, an Aug. 5 date at Houston's NRG Park, will feature EDM favorite Skrillex opening the show.
As previously mentioned, Alice in Chains will open dates between June 23 and July 3 in Detroit, Washington, D.C., Kansas City and Chicago. As for Kravitz, he's on board for shows between July 19 and 24 in Foxborough, Mass. and East Rutherford, N.J..
That leaves eight stops without named openers. Those cities include Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Glendale, Ariz., Los Angeles and San Diego. Stay tuned for info on those openers as it comes in.
