Reclusive American rockers Guns'N'Roses follow their Leeds Carling festival headlining spot with two provisional dates at London's Docklands Arena on August 26th and 27th. This is presumably to make up for being unable to headline the Reading part of the Carling Festival, as the band are performing at the Pukkelpop Festival on the European mainland the same night.
The band, who previously postponed - then cancelled their first UK shows since 1993 last year - now consist of sole original member Axl Rose, alongside new members Buckethead, Robin Finck (of Nine Inch Nails), Tommy Stintson (of The Replacements), Paul Tobias, Brain (of Primus), and Dizzy Reed.
Guns'N'Roses are also rumoured to have finally finished the long-awaited 'Chinese Democracy' album, the sequel to their last album of original material, 'Use Your Illusion' which was released in 1991.
Several new songs presumably scheduled for the new album have been debuted at concerts in Las Vegas and Rio, but there is no confirmed news of when the album might - if ever - be released. Or even if Guns'N'Roses will turn up at Leeds or London, given their tendancy for last minute postponements, cancellations, and a no-interviews policy. Only time will tell if they actually will perform.
Details of when tickets go on sale are not yet available.
