Guns N’ Roses will be one of the Download 2017 headliners and this will be officially confirmed in the not-too-distant. A full-scale European tour is currently being booked for Spring/Summer 2017 and the Download headline appearance in early June will be one of the highlights.

The Gunners have also just announced dates in Australia and Japan for January and February which you can see below.

The current run of North American dates finish on Monday August 22nd and just five days later Axl hooks up with his other band, AC/DC, for ten North American dates, the final leg of the Rock Or Bust World Tour. These are the dates that were postponed earlier in the year when Brian Johnson had to come off the road due to hearing problems.

Once the AC/DC dates are completed, The Gunners head to South America for a run of twelve dates in six countries.

The Japanese and Australian dates are:

January 21st: Kyocera Dome, Osaka
January 28th: Saitama Super Arena, Tokyo
January 29th: Saitama Super Arena, Tokyo
February 7th: QSAC Stadium, Brisbane
February 10th: ANZ Stadium, Sydney
