While Guns N’ Roses has been preparing for a deluxe reissue album to celebrate its 30th anniversary, there has also been new progress for their upcoming 2022 Australian tour announced recently.
Originally scheduled to kick off last month, Guns N’ Roses Australian tour was pushed back to November 2022 due to the ongoing pandemic. And it also turned out just recently that the iconic rock band will be receiving more financial support in rescheduling assistance from the Australian government’s Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) program.
Music promoters TEG Dainty has received another AUD $600,000 (approximately $432,000) fund from the government to help the concert promoter reschedule while it has been preparing to present Guns’ N’ Roses delayed arena tour that was initially set to take place last month.
While the Australian government’s RISE program aims to help businesses get back on their feet and help stimulate the economy that’s been damaged by pandemics shutdowns of the last year-plus, the music promoters of Guns N’ Roses, TEG Dainty has become one of 63 entities within Australia to benefit from the program. The promoter company’s CEO Paul Daint has also made a statement earlier in September to clarify the current situation of the regarded rock band’s delayed tour and said:
“We worked for months with the various state governments trying to create a safe environment so that the Guns N’ Roses tour could proceed this year. Despite our best efforts, it recently became clear that we could not proceed in 2021 and it has taken time to finalize a plan where we could be confident of completing a national tour of Australia next year. This will be the biggest stadium rock tour of summer 2022 with hundreds of people on the road, a massive production and logistics involved.”
Earlier of the postpone, it was also announced that TEG Dainty would receive AUD $750,000 to assist with the Guns N’ Roses tour of Australia, under the fourth batch of grants from the $200 million RISE fund. Still, it apparently didn’t go well, either. But luckily, everything finally seems to get back on trial, as the iconic rock band will be performing again in Australia after 5 years since it last visited the country as a part of its Not In This Lifetime tour.
On the other hand, Slash has also been promoting a new album, titled “4”, with Myles Kenedy and The Conspirators, while Guns N’ Roses has also been preparing to put together a deluxe reissue of the “Use Your Illusion” albums for a tentative summer 2022 release. Even though the upcoming deluxe reissue, unfortunately, wouldn’t make it coinciding with Guns N’ Roses 30th anniversary of the LPs’ original release, 2022 still seems to be going great anyway, considering all other progress as the other great bands have also started to hit back on the roads to meet their fans in 2022 with a full agenda.
Ultimately, there is also the official announcement banner for Guns N’ Roses 2022 Australian tour with dates down below.
