|After canceling its European tour because Buckethead was allegedly ill, Guns N' Roses have rescheduled the dates.
While the exact details have not been confirmed by the GNR camp, various European ticketing sites are listing the following dates:
Arnhem, The Netherlands, Dec. 2;
Oslo, Norway Dec. 5;
Stockholm, Sweden Dec. 7;
London, England, Dec. 13 and 14;
Glasgow, Scotland, Dec. 16;
Manchester, England, Dec. 18; and
Birmingham, England, Dec. 19.
More are expected to be added with the final tally being close to the 14 shows originally scheduled for June.
Most speculate that the reason the tour was initially canceled was because the vocals are still not done for the band's highly anticipated next album, Chinese Democracy, which is supposed to come out this summer.
Meanwhile, former GNR guitarist Slash is also rescheduling his canceled Snakepit tour dates. The guitarist blew off his opening slot with AC/DC when he came down with pneumonia in March (and we believe him).
The hatted one will now be doing a one-off show at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles June 1, and will hit the road on the first leg of a headlining tour beginning June 15 in Clifton Park, NY. Eleven dates are confirmed through June 29 in Pittsburgh.
