Israel has been waiting 23 years for Guns N’ Roses to return to Tel Aviv. On July 15, Israeli hard-rock fans will get to see three of the original band members along with a group of talented musicians perform at Yarkon Park, a concert that will close the band’s European leg of its Not in This Lifetime… tour.
After last year’s Guns N’ Roses’ Not in This Lifetime… tour played for over 1.8 million fans, the successful rock band has embarked on another leg of the tour with dozens of concerts in Europe. One of the concerts will take place in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park on July 15. This performance will conclude the European leg of the tour, just before the band heads back to the US.
23 years after Guns N’ Roses first stood on the stage in Yarkon Park, the Israeli production company Bluestone Group is bringing three of the original band members (lead vocalist Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bass guitarist Duff McKagan) back to Israel. They will be joined by drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed (who was a crucial part of the band in the 1990s), rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus and keyboardist Melissa Reese.

Ever since the first reunion performance in April 2016 at the Coachella Festival, the tour of the regrouped band has become one of the most popular music tours in America.
