AIC will perform the first few nights of the tour as sole direct support in Detroit and Chicago. Then Kravitz will join the tour in Foxboro, MA at Gillette Stadium on Jul 19th through the end of the tour.

Guns N’ Roses have already performed two sold out shows at the new Las Vegas Arena to begin their storied comeback, two performances in Mexico City, and played Coachella. Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose, Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard). Alice In Chains are preparing a new album for later this year, while Lenny Kravitz is in the studio wrapping up music for a 2017 release.

Kravitz commented in an interview about the tour:

“I don’t normally do gigs like this. But sometimes you’ve got to do things for the fun of it, for the experience. I’m looking forward to playing with them and celebrating them coming back together.”

On Kravitz’ history with GNR: “I went to high school with Slash,” he says. “I’ve known Axl, Slash and Duff from the beginning. We all came up together, and we worked together. I wrote ‘Always on the Run’ with Slash and he played on ‘Fields of Joy,’ both on my Mama Said album.”

The last time Kravitz joined Guns N’ Roses onstage, the singer was one of a handful of special guests who came out during the band’s Paris concert in June 1992. “I remember that time very well because we were all staying at the Hôtel de Crillon, and we were all in Paris for a few days together,” Kravitz says. “It was a lot of fun.”

Lenny plans to play a mostly rock set as an opening act on this tour: “We’re definitely going to jam and improvise and get loose, and treat it like a festival. Summertime always makes me think of festivals like the Isle of Wight, when Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix played. I love the summer, outdoor concert vibe, so we’ll rock out and improvise and go deep and get psychedelic and out there.”

“I haven’t seen Slash since the [Troubadour] gig, but I’ve texted with him,” Kravitz says. “I’m sure something fun and off-the-cuff is bound to happen.”
