Filed under the "how far they've fallen" department, Guns N' Roses will come to Houston on May 28 for a concert at the House of Blues. Tickets will run from $135 (for general admission) to $155 and $175 for upper and lower balcony.
The promoters are calling this a "once in a lifetime, up close and personal show," which is an amusing way to gild a rose. Hey, that's pretty good, because his name is Axl Rose.
The Houston date is an add-on to a stop in Texas the band was already scheduled to make in San Antonio, when they perform at the River City Rockfest at the AT&T Center on May 26. They're headlining the annual Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma on May 24, and they will also play a few dates in the Southwest around that time, including the Lone Star Amphitheater in Lubbock on June 1 and Kansas City on June 2.
After Houston, the band will travel to Dallas House of Blues for a May 29 show.
Rose kind of can't get a break; in March, he was sued by a fan in Australia after getting hit in the mouth by a cordless microphone Rose threw into the audience. Uh, maybe you shouldn't go to rock shows?
Tickets will go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m.
