Guns N' Roses announced Monday they will perform a series of shows through the U.S. in February. Unlike their past tour, the six U.S. shows will be hosted by small venues and clubs, kicking off at the Roseland Ballroom in New York on Feb. 10 and ending at the House of Blues in Atlantic City on Feb. 24.
The hard rock group will also perform at Terminal 5 in New York on Feb. 12, Webster Hall in New York on Feb. 15, the House of Blues in Chicago on Feb. 19 and The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Md. on Feb. 23.
The presale for tickets for New York shows are set for Tuesday, Jan. 31 while the other tickets will go on sale Wednesday.
The mini-tour, which will coincide with Fashion Week in New York, will lead up to the band's induction in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April in Cleveland, Ohio. Guns N' Roses is set to be inducted in the Hall of Fame along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Beastie Boys.
Guns N' Roses has also announced an eight-day tour in Europe this summer. The band has recently ended their latest major tour in the U.S. after previously touring in Canada, Europe and Latin America.
While the original band included Axl Rose on vocals, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler, the group today barely resembles its original line-up. While Guns N' Roses is still led by Axl Rose, the original five-man group split in the early 90s.
The band today includes lead guitarists Ron Bubmblefoot Thal and DJ Shba, rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman.
