Second Guns N' Roses Show Added

Monday 30 April 2007

A second Guns N' Roses concert has been announced after tickets for the first concert sold out in less than an hour today.

The sold-out Chinese Democracy World Tour concert on June 29 will mark the band's first appearance in New Zealand in 14 years.

Australian promoter Paul Dainty said due to demand a second concert would be held on June 30, with tickets on sale from 1pm today.

"It's been a long wait to see this legendary band; we expect tickets for the final show will sell out fast."

Singer Axl Rose is the only original member remaining since the band played to more than 50,000 people at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium in 1993.

That year the band disintegrated due to ongoing personality clashes.

The band will be joined by guitarists Robin Finck, Ron `Bumblefoot' Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboard players Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman, and drummer Frank Ferrer.
