Guns N’ Roses announce 2023 San Diego show
Guns N’ Roses is returning to the road in a major way this year for the first time since 2021. The veteran band’s 2023 tour of stadiums, festivals and arenas, which will crisscross the globe between June and October, includes an Oct. 1 concert at San Diego’s Snapdragon Stadium.
The stadium sits on the site of the former Qualcomm Stadium, where Guns N’ Roses last performed in 2016. The group had previously played at the same location in 1993, at what was then known as San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium.
Or did they? The band that performed Monday was polished, professional and did not self-destruct, unlike the GNR of old
The 2023 tour, which was announced Tuesday morning, will open June 5 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and conclude Oct. 16 at BC Place in Vancouver, Canada. San Diego is one of only two California stops on the tour. The other is Oct. 8 in Sacramento.
This will be the current iteration of Guns N’ Roses’ first area concert since a 2019 performance at a Tijuana festival date at Estadio Caliente.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. local time at gunsnroses.com. The band’s “Nightrain” fan club pre-sale begins Wednesday at 10 a.m. local time. Fans can also purchase VIP packages.
