It’s been a long time coming. Following months of speculation from rock music fans across the region, legendary hard rock band Guns N’ Roses will play in Singapore for the first time at Changi Exhibition Centre on Saturday, 25 February, 2017.
The tour will see frontman Axl Rose reuniting with former Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan from the band’s original Appetite for Destruction lineup. Ex-rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin and original drummer Steven Adler will not be joining the fold.
Ever since Slash and McKagan left the band in 1996 and 1997 respectively, Guns N’ Roses used a rotating lineup, with Rose being the only constant member of the group.
Guns N’ Roses last released album Chinese Democracy in 2008. The group first gained acclaim with the seminal Appetite for Destruction in 1987, which is still considered one of the greatest albums of all time.
Singapore will be the only Southeast Asian stop for the band for their worldwide tour.

Reactions from the internet
However, not many are too excited over the prices. Many have made their opinions over the exorbitant ticket prices known on social media. Take for example the comments posted on The Straits Times Facebook page.
Ok lor, go watch YouTube, it’s your loss.
Some voiced their concerns about lead singer Axl Rose.
Some suggested that audiences should be charged senior citizen prices due to Guns N’ Roses being from the Pioneer Generation…
And some had the right spirit.
This comment probably sums up sentiments to shut down the haters. Why do Singaporeans complain so much?
