January 21, 2017

GUNS N' ROSES kicked off the Japanese leg of its "Not In This Lifetime" tour Saturday night (January 21) in Osaka, Japan.

The concert at Kyocera Dome once again saw classic GN'R lineup members Slash, Duff McKagan and Axl Rose backed by drummer Frank Ferrer, guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and new second keyboardist Melissa Reese.

Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be seen below.

GUNS N' ROSES has four more shows in Japan scheduled for later this month, to be followed by dates in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand and United Arab Emirates in February and March.

The "Not in This Lifetime" tour sold more than three million tickets in 2016, making it the year's most successful rock tour.

As previously reported, GUNS N' ROSES is coming back to North America next summer for at least another 15 stadium dates, as the band continues its reunion tour. The new North American run kicks off on July 27 in St. Louis, ending on September 8 in San Antonio.

The group has also mapped out a European jaunt that will begin on May 27 in Dublin, Ireland, ending on July 12 in the Netherlands. A July 15 show in Tel Aviv, Israel will also precede the North American leg.

The band kicked off its reunion trek last April with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California's Coachella festival.

The first North American leg of the tour kicked off in late June and included 25 concerts, grossing a staggering $117 million.
