Guns N’ Roses To Be The First Rock Group To Play At New Vegas Stadium


Used To Love Her rockers, Guns ‘N’ Roses are due to be the first-ever rock artist to play Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium. The group will hit the City of Second Chances, Lost Wages this summer, as part of their rescheduled 2021 North American tour. Wolfgang Van Halen’s Mammoth WVH will open the concert, which was originally set to take place in 2020.

According to Sporting News, the 65,000-capacity stadium, which is located in Paradise right next to the Las Vegas Strip, took under three years to complete. The venue became the home of NFL’s Raiders football team, when they moved out of Oakland, California.

The Allegiant Stadium’s website notes that the show is the first-ever rock concert to take place there. Electronic artist, Illenium and country singer Garth Brooks are due to perform there this year, as well as Raiders’ football games.

Tickets for the Guns ‘N’ Roses show at Allegiant Stadium go on sale this Saturday, June 12th. However, members of their Nightrain fan club have early access to purchase them, starting now until June 11th. Tickets are available from the band’s website.

When Guns ‘N’ Roses last played a concert in the United States, it took place at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace in 2019. The Sweet Child O’ Mine rockers played two shows on the final dates of their Not in This Lifetime tour.

The We’re F’N’ Back! Tour will be kicking off on July 31st, at the Hersheypark Stadium and will wrap up with a two-night stand at the Hard Rock Live Arena in Hollywood, on October 2nd and 3rd. Wolfgang Van Halen’s solo band Mammoth WVH will be hitting the road with Guns ‘N’ Roses as the support act on the tour.
