Guns N' Roses, those intrepid, non-stop, fan friendly road warriors are reportedly planning a North American tour.

Now if you've at all followed Axl Rose and whatever else members are in the band over the past twenty years, then my opening line didn't quite sit right with you.

You know about on again/off again reunion whispers with Slash and the other original members. You know about how when the band actually does appear live, it's a foregone conclusion that the show will begin hours late (fans in Ireland didn't take too kindly to Axl's tardiness: see video below). You know that Chinese Democracy not only took years to arrive but also sorely under delivered when it did (I was working on an active rock format at the time: we didn't play one single track).

Oh, it's not as if GnR has been totally in hiatus: they played Sturgis last year (1.5 hours late I heard) . They often play outside of the States. But now a radio station in Miami is saying that an October 29th date at American Airlines Arena.

This of course gets the specualtion rolling that a series of North American dates will be soon to follow.

But we know where that has gotten us in the past.

Anyway, here are the dates for the group's South American/Mexican trek.
