GUNS N’ROSES are to rehearse in Ireland before their forthcoming European tour, MCD promoter Denis Desmond has said.

The band announced a somewhat surprise concert at the O2 in Dublin for May following on from their disastrous performance at the same venue two years ago when singer Axl Rose (pictured) walked off stage and thousands of fans left the arena.

Their O2 concert on May 17th is anticipated to be the first of a series of shows the band will perform across Europe this summer.

It will take place almost 20 years to the day after their headline concert at Slane Castle in 1992.

Desmond said the request to play in Ireland came from Rose himself because the singer felt they had “unfinished business”with their Irish fans.

“We want to keep it simple. The thing is that it is a great show. He [Axl Rose] wants to come back.

“It was his request. The easiest thing for him to do would be to go ‘Oh I’m never coming back again after what happened’ but he wants to come back.”

They are also likely to use their time in Ireland to rehearse songs for an anticipated follow-up to their last album Chinese Democracy which took 13 years to complete. “The band like Ireland, they like playing here,” Desmond added. “I think he’s going to come back and deliver an 11 out of 10 show.”

Guns N’Roses will play the O2 in the full realisation that if they do not finish their set, they will not be allowed to leave the building as happened the last time they played.

The band walked off stage at their previous Irish concert after fans, who were agitated by their late arrival on stage, ignored a warning from Rose not to throw bottles on stage.

After a fan threw a water bottle during the intro to the second song Welcome to the Jungle, the singer announced: “Here’s the deal, one more bottle, we go home. We want to stay.

“If you don’t want to have fun just let us know. We’ll be on our way.”

Three songs later, another object was hurled onstage. Rose said goodnight, the group stopped the show and left the stage at 10.50pm to a cacophony of boos and cat-whistles.

Desmond appeared on stage and told the crowd he was endeavouring to get the band back on stage. He pleaded with them to refrain from throwing things up on stage.

Security refused to allow the band to leave the arena and they came back on stage at 11.10pm and finished a set which only concluded at 12.53am to a half empty arena.

Desmond cautioned that Guns N’Roses fans had to make allowances for the band’s habitual lateness coming on stage, but he did not anticipate a repeat of what happened at the O2 in September 2010.

“It was a one-off. Lightning doesn’t strike twice,” he said.

Axl Rose is the only surviving member of the original Guns'N’Roses line-up while keyboard player Dizzy Reed played at Slane Castle on the Use Your Illusions tour.

The original band members will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April leading to huge anticipation among their fans that they will put their well-documented differences behind them and reunite on stage for that event.

The first two shows of the tour have been kinda underwhelming setlist-wise. The shows have been shorter, with 20 and 21 songs per set compared to 24.5 on the UCAP tour earlier this year, and many fans were thought to believe new songs would be premiered (because of GN'R Facebook and a comment from Tommy). If I were to suppress my otherwise skeptical nature, could it be that we are in for a surprise here in Dublin? Dublin was the original start of the tour, and Axl has some making-up to do for 2010. In addition, the promoter has hinted at the band rehearsing new stuff during the unusual large amount of free days leading up to the show. The Moscow shows could have been "warm-up shows" to make sure everything was in working order, with Axl even turning up for soundcheck, before the originally intended start of the tour. Hmm....

Dublin is a cool city! Hopefully they get some rehearsing/recording done..

So far no real evidence of them doing that, but then again, it's not thursday yet.

Sounds like he is in Scotland, not in Ireland. I had that same experience in Edinburgh & Perth last month in 2 hotels.

Brilliant stuff! Too bad Dj missed the start of the second solo (my favourite part of the whole song) and Axl didn't quite reach the highest tones. But he sang well, and Bumbles is boss on the second solo

23 songs last night, the shows are getting longer each night now. Too bad that Madagascar was gone, but adding my favourite GN'R song (There Was A Time) more than made up for it. I read tweets with hashtag gnr during the first part of the show before I fell asleep and it looks like people loved it. Looking forward to reviews and more videos.

I think his voice is strong enough to do it, it is just a matter of practising the song a bit. I bet he will get there if they play it a few more times during this tour. It's a difficult song to sing.

I have added the setlist and a couple of quotes from Axl to the first post. I have to say I enjoy Axl's comments and funny self-deprecating tone.
