Guns N' Roses Confirm Canadian Tour Dates

Planet Rock is reporting the much rumored, oft delayed and seemingly unlikely Guns N Roses live dates have finally been confirmed.

The band will play thirteen dates in Canada as part of a wider Chinese Democracy World Tour.

The shows kick off early in 2010 in Winnipeg and dates have been set for the rest of January and early February.

Judging by the fact that the dates have been announced as part of a “World Tour” it would suggest that the band will announcing more dates in the very near future.

According to the press release for the tour, the band will be made up of Axl Rose, Frank Ferrer, Tommy Stinson, Richard Fortus, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Dizzy Reed, and Chris Pitman plus new guitarist DJ Ashba, who joined earlier this year. They will apparently start rehearsals in LA very shortly.

Chinese Democracy was released in November 2008, fifteen years after GNR’s previous studio album. They last toured in 2006.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't DJ Ashba play guitar for Nikki Sixx's "Sixx: AM" project a year or two ago?

If it's the same guy, he's a heck of a guitarist and has some mad creative chops.
