Published Oct 19, 2009By the looks of things, Gun N' Roses will finally come out of hiding and mark their return to the public sphere with a Canadian tour. According to Ticketmaster's listings and a press release from promoters Live Nation, Axl Rose and co. will be playing a string of dates north of the border come January, including stops in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
The tour is apparently being dubbed the "Chinese Democracy World Tour," though so far the North American dates appear to be limited to Canada. The live dates would mark Guns N' Roses' first in North America in support of their infamous Chinese Democracy album, and would follow a mini-tour in Asia later this year .
In typical G N' R fashion, the band have yet to confirm the dates on their website. Nevertheless, all signs point to this tour being official, with tickets going on sale later this week.
