The band will also perform three concerts in Japan in January and six shows in Australia in February before travelling to Singapore, but it appears a date in Hong Kong is unlikely.

Guns N’ Roses, whose first album from 1987, Appetite for Destruction, remains the bestselling US debut of all time, have been rejuvenated this year with two original members, guitarist Slash and bass player Duff McKagan, returning to the band fronted by vocalist Axl Rose.

The Not In This Lifetime Tour started in the United States on June 23 and is rolling through South America before heading to the Asia-Pacific region. Rolling Stone magazine has said the tour represents “the triumphant return of one of the most important bands to cross rock music history”.

Prices of tickets to the Singapore show at Changi Exhibition Centre start at S$199 (HK$1,120), and they will go on sale on October 17. To pre-register for tickets, visit www.viagogo.com. For more information, visit www.sistic.com.sg
