Guns N’ Roses have announced the first support acts for the Not In This Lifetime tour. Alice In Chains will be opening the shows in Detroit, Washington DC, Kansas City and Chicago, and Lenny Kravitz will serve as support at the concerts taking place in Foxboro and East Rutherford.
“I don’t normally do gigs like this,” Kravitz tells Rolling Stone. “But sometimes you’ve got to do things for the fun of it, for the experience. I’m looking forward to playing with them and celebrating them coming back together.”
Asked how he will structure his set to appeal to the Guns N’ Roses audience, Kravitz says, “We’re definitely going to jam and improvise and get loose, and treat it like a festival. Summertime always makes me think of festivals like the Isle of Wight, when Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix played. I love the summer, outdoor concert vibe, so we’ll rock out and improvise and go deep and get psychedelic and out there.”
The Guns N’ Roses tour, which includes the reunion of original band members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, runs from June 23rd to August 22nd.
