|As we are nearing the end of the summer tour of Europe and Israel, here's a little recap of the tour so far.
The tour started with two dates in Moscow, Russia and then moved on to Dublin, Ireland where the band returned to the O2 for a show there.
After Ireland, the tour visited the UK with two shows at London's O2 Arena. The O2 shows saw Izzy Stradlin make a guest appearance. He joined the band on 14 Years, as well as other songs. It was the first time in about 20 years that GN'R has performed the song.
The tour then headed across the Channel to the Netherlands, Germany and multiple shows in France. One of the French shows was a headlining show at Hellfest, where the band had to wait before being able to start because the previous band was still on stage.
After France, the band headlined Gods Of Metal outside Milan, Italy. Where Sebastian Bach made a special appearance on My Michelle.
Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Romania were next. Then a visit to Tel Aviv, Israel.
It was the first time since 1993 that GN'R played in Israel. After Israel, Turkey and Bulgaria were visited. The show in Sofia marked the first time GN'R played in Bulgaria.
