Guns N' Roses to Open for the Rolling Stones


Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses will open two German dates on the Rolling Stones' upcoming tour of Europe, a role they last performed during the Stones' 1989 U.S. trek.

According to the Rolling Stones' Web site, the Axl Rose-rose led rock band will warm up the crowd in Nuremburg on July 10 and Leipzig on July 12.

The tour is still set to begin on May 27 in Barcelona, despite continued speculation about guitarist Keith Richards' health. He was released from a New Zealand hospital earlier this week after suffering mild concussion when he reportedly fell from a tree in Fiji. News reports have said he may require surgery, but the band's publicist said on Wednesday that Richards was fine and his condition was being monitored.

The original Guns N' Roses lineup - Rose is now the only veteran - opened for the Stones during their four-night stint at the Los Angeles Coliseum in October 1989. One of their sets was highlighted by a Rose monologue in defense of racist and homophobic lyrics in the song "One in a Million," a bitter complaint that too many people in the Guns organization were "dancing with Mr. Brownstone" (i.e. doing drugs), and a pledge that he would never perform again with Guns N' Roses.
