Guns N’ Roses Recruit Smashing Pumpkins for Six 2020 Tour Dates
Just a few days after announcing their 2020 North American tour, Guns N' Roses have revealed the opener for six shows on the run — '90s icons Smashing Pumpkins.
The Pumpkins will join GN'R this July in Philadelphia, Detroit, Toronto, Washington D.C., East Rutherford and Boston. Tickets went on sale Friday, Feb. 7, at noon local time. See Guns' entire North American tour route below.
Guns N' Roses Not in This Lifetime reunion tour kicked off in Las Vegas in 2016, and ended in Sin City in late 2019. As they began announcing shows for 2020, they dropped the tour name, implying that the upcoming shows are no longer a "reunion," and that Slash and Duff McKagan are in for the long haul. According to Live Nation's promotional video for the tour, this is the beginning of the "next chapter" for the rockers.
While we don't have a definitive timeline for new Guns N' Roses music, according to several of the members, material has been recorded. Smashing Pumpkins, however, have plans to release a conceptual double album at some point later this year.
