THE reformed line-up of Guns N’ Roses have announced their first UK concerts since 1993.

The band kick off the 19-date European tour at Dublin’s Slane Castle on May 22, 2017, and visit The London Stadium on June 16.

Other dates are scheduled in Paris, Stockholm and Madrid.

There also appears to be a gap in the band’s schedule during the Glastonbury festival, suggesting they could be the Sunday night headliners.

Guitarist Slash previously played there as a solo artist in 2010.

The original members of Guns N’ Roses reformed in January after years of acrimony.

Singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan launched their comeback in April with two well-received performances in Las Vegas, followed by a headline set at the Coachella festival.

The band spent the rest of 2016 touring North and South America, while Rose also played several shows with AC/DC, whose singer Brian Johnson had to quit touring due to hearing difficulties.

Tickets for Guns N’ Roses European tour go on sale on Friday, December 9 at 10am. Full information is available on the band’s website.
