Guns N’ Roses To Be Supported by Duff McKagan’s Loaded at Upcoming Shows
We're still a long ways away from a full-scale Guns N' Roses reunion, since Slash would still rather stomp on the olive branch than hand it to frontman Axl Rose, but some factions of the Guns camp are making nice. Rose will be sharing stages in the near future with former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, revealed Rose in his interview with 'That Metal Show' set to air Nov. 11.
The comments after Guns' show in Miami, during a one-hour interview with 'That Metal Show' host Eddie Trunk. "We did ask Axl about R&R Hall, new music, his lateness, this lineup, playing with Duff (said [McKagan's band] Loaded will open shows) and more," tweeted Trunk.
The path of reconciliation started in October 2010 when, after a chance meeting at a London hotel, Rose invited McKagan to join Guns N' Roses onstage for their show at the O2 arena. McKagan played with his former bandmate on "You Could Be Mine," "Patience," "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" and "Nice Boys," then bowed with the band at the end of the show. It was the first time McKagan played with GN'R in 17 years.
Guns N' Roses launched their North American tour in Orlando on Friday (Oct. 28). Dates are scheduled through Dec. 17 in Vancouver, Canada.
