Guns N’ Roses kicked off the North American leg of their 2023 world tour in August with two shows in Canada. Country music superstar and frequent collaborator Carrie Underwood was the band’s special guest. During her set, she played to her audience, busting out rock covers by Joan Jett, Motörhead, Led Zeppelin, Pat Benatar, Heart, and The Rolling Stones. During GnR’s set, Underwood joined them for “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Paradise City.” She also performed with Guns N’ Roses on August 26 at GEODIS Park in Nashville.

Over the weekend, Guns N’ Roses took the stage at Power Trip in Indio, California. Fellow rock icons Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, and Tool also performed. On November 5, Guns N’ Roses will conclude their tour with a headlining stand at Heaven & Hell Festival in Mexico City.

Guns N’ Roses recently revealed a brand new song called “Perhaps.” The song was originally conceived during the Chinese Democracy recording sessions in the early 2000s. It is only the band’s second new piece of recorded material in the last 15 years. A physical version of “Perhaps” is available on a 7″ vinyl via Geffen. The B-Side of the record contains another new song, “The General.” Fans can pre-order a vinyl copy now HERE, which ships on October 27. To commemorate the release, the band has also put out a “Perhaps” merch line which includes a t-shirts, a hoodie, a long-sleeve shirt, and a Magic 8-Ball.

In 2021, Guns N’ Roses came out with a new EP Hard Skool. It was the first time in 28 years that vocalist Axl Rose, guitarist Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan collaborated together on new material together. The trio was accompanied on the new studio effort by the current members of the GNR lineup, which is completed by guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer, as well as keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese. The EP also features “Absurd, a re-worked track from the Chinese Democracy sessions, as well as live recordings of the band’s ‘91 power ballad “Don’t Cry” and “You’re Crazy” from their seminal debut LP Appetite For Destruction. Released back in August of 2021, “Absurd” was the first new Guns N’ Roses song in 13 years.

The band’s last proper studio outing was Chinese Democracy. Their sixth album, it was finally released on November 23, 2008 via Black Frog/Geffen after various lineup shifts and label issues. Prior to that, the last Guns N’ Roses album of original material was their massive double album Use Your Illusions I and Use Your Illusions II, released in September of 1991.

The Black Keys’ latest LP Dropout Boogie arrived on May 13, 2022 via Nonesuch. It is their eleventh studio effort. The record peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart.

As they’ve done their entire career, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney wrote all of the material for their latest record, Dropout Boogie, in the studio, and the album captures a number of first takes that hark back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio basements. After hashing out initial ideas at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, the duo welcomed new collaborators Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ Top), Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound), and Angelo Petraglia (Kings of Leon) to the sessions, marking the first time they’ve invited multiple new contributors to work simultaneously on one of their own albums.
