Duff McKagan To Rejoin Guns N’ Roses For South American Tour


16

Duff McKagan will be rejoining Guns N’ Roses for a handful of South American shows this month. McKagan will be filling in for current bassist Tommy Stinson, who has previous obligations to The Replacements. Stinson will be back on bass with the band at their May 13th appearance in Bethlehem, PA.

Billboard.com got the following official word on the situation from Stinson:

“I had those Replacement shows come up the same time the (South American) tour came up, and it got to be a scheduling issue right out of the gate. I didn’t want to fuck anyone up in Guns by saying, ‘Hey, I can’t do this tour’ or anything like that. Luckily someone was able to reach out to Duff and he was amenable to the idea and was into doing it. It’s Duff being the kind of good sport he is, trying to help Axl (Rose) out. So I’m like, ‘Thanks dude, for covering my ass on this one.’ I think people are gonna be really stoked about it. It’s gonna be fun for everyone.”

McKagan previously hinted at the reunion of sorts via his Twitter.
