Hard rock titans Guns N’ Roses are coming to the Mid-South. Later this week, details will be formally announced for a Dec. 5 concert date at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, Miss.
The Axl Rose-led band is undertaking its first U.S. tour in over five years. The group released its long awaited LP, Chinese Democracy, in 2008 and largely has been touring internationally.
The band’s current lineup includes bassist Tommy Stinson (of the Replacements fame), drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Chris Pitman, and guitarists Richard Fortus, DJ Ashba and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.
The band’s U.S. tour is expected to start in late October in Florida and continue through December. Tickets for the DeSoto Civic Center show will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com or (800) 745-3000.
