In an extension of the "Not in This Lifetime" tour, Guns N' Roses will land at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock Saturday, August 5, with special guest Sturgill Simpson. The announcement has been long anticipated from fans who took note of the band's scheduled 2017 dates in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Dubai.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 3, 10 a.m. at, and if you're a CitiCard member, you can grab tickets at the pre-sale Tuesday, May 30, 10 a.m.

Axl, Slash and Duff McKagan managed to pull off a string of 2016 dates to great effect, reportedly, and without intra-band violence, so hopes are high. The words "Izzy Stradlin" are conspicuously and unsurprisingly missing from the announcement, but hey, fans can dream.
