Guns N’ Roses wrap up its Latin American tour and already they’re setting up for another run next year. The band led by Axl Rose readies for the second leg of an American tour that is to hit Minnesota.
According to Chris Riemenschneider of Startribune.com, billboards all over Minnesota are teasing fans of things to come next year. The sign shows the message “Welcome to the Jungle,” with the hashtag “GnFnR2017.” The message coincided with the recent video released by the band entitled “The machine is back at it in 2017.”
The same message has popped around Canada with one featuring Guns N’ Roses’ song “Patience.” It further fuels speculations that both places get included when “Not in This Lifetime” tour reels off next year. The band is in Mexico City for the last leg of their Latin American tour then takes a breather.
Fans in Minnesota last saw Guns N’ Roses with Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan back in 1992. It was the time when the band paired with another legendary rock band, Metallica. Many even thought that the supposed world tour would not last this long considering their long-standing feud within.

Other members joining Guns N’ Roses in the tour includes Dizzy Reed, Fortus, Frank Ferrer, and Melissa Reese. The band successfully finished part of North America earning about $120 million with $5.5 million per show. Most likely it will also net them the same earnings with their Latin American tour.
In 2017, the band’s world tour visits Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, and Dubai. Guns N’ Roses have not yet announced any dates and venues for the second leg of the North American tour. But among the venues suggested include TCF Bank, U.S. Bank, and the Target Field.
Production manager Dale “Opie” Skjerseth stated that the world tour might stretch until next year. If it does, it would break “Use Your Illusion” record tour in 1992.
