According to Classic Rock magazine, GUNS N' ROSES will play the following U.K. dates in July:

Jul. 18 - Sheffield, Hallam FM Arena
Jul. 19 - Newcastle, Metro Radio Arena
Jul. 21 - Glasgow, Secc
Jul. 23 - Manchester, MEN Arena
Jul. 25 - Birmingham, NEC
Jul. 27 - Nottingham Arena
Jul. 30 - London, Wembley Arena

Tickets will reportedly go on sale June 2.

As previously reported, GUNS N' ROSES looks likely to return for more U.S. shows this autumn, possibly starting in September, according to a press release. Following the band's recent four-night stand in New York City, their first live shows since late 2002, singer Axl Rose said, "We've just finished our four shows in NY and had an amazing time. NY has always been special and it feels great to be doing this again particularly in front of so many friends. I am very excited about Europe and getting back over here in September."

The group, which features no original members from its classic lineup other than Axl, began a run of European festival shows today (Thursday, May 25).

Axl Rose has been saying that the band's long-delayed new album, "Chinese Democracy", will be out later this year.

Won't be the same without the original band members - that element of uncertainty and pure "combustability" is missing - not to mention the fact that Slash is without a doubt the best guitar player on the planet! Shame - looks like Axl is just trying to make some extra bucks, living off yesterday's reputation.

i think i'm going to agree with psythe and the rest of you guys once i listen to the new guns n roses. but the original line-up was definitely what made guns n roses one of the greatest ever. even if i like guns n roses new songs it just won't be the same for me if without slash.

Hmm, i have mixed feelings about the gig I'm going to. I'm not a fan of the new "Guns n Roses", but it is a chance to see something of the old Axl charisma...plus I've seen VR - and they RAWK! - and at least now I can say I've seen the Big 3.

I just don't get it. Axl can whip it out and piss on his fans and they beg for more. No matter what the guy does people still love him. He's walked off stage, punched fans, taken 10 years to put out a record and no one cares-they just plunk down their hard earned $$$ like nothings wrong...?!???

I went to the GnR gig in the Hammersmith Apollo and I must confess they were great. It is hard to get used to the band without the other members but Axl is the Brain of it and that will never change. If you have the chance to go and whatch this guys.... GO, you will not regret it.
Axl is 44 but in great form. That is worth it...
Axl Rose and GnR, Welcome back!

I'm going to see GnR at Manchester in July - I'm 16 so it just proves that their music spreads to all generations! Granted, the original line-up was, and is always going to be the best sound and I was gutted Slash and Duff weren't gonna be there but hey, so long as Axl's still rocking! I hope the new line-up sound is as good at the orginal and if it is or it isn't it'll still be a good, legendary night!

Well, there's so much negative and positive comments on here, I'm thoroughly confused! So I think all that remains for me to say is that I'm a huge fan of Guns N Roses as they were and I'll see how the gig goes, as for the new line-up...

The Hammersmith gig was f***ing AWESOME. Of course it's not the same with the new band as it was back in the day, but this doesn't change the fact that Axl is one of the greatest frontmen of all time. Period. The guy basically IS Guns n' Roses. Oh, and to everyone complaining about the fact he was so late onstage... What did you expect? Mr Rose isn't exactly renowned for his punctuality, is he?! Deal with it or don't f***ing turn up.
