Guns N’ Roses is scheduled to headline the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on July 31, 2016, as part of the hard rock band’s Not In This Lifetime reunion tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public on April 8, following a pre-sale for Citi cardmembers.

The 20-date stadium tour follows an April 1 showcase at the Troubadour club in Los Angeles and performances this month in Las Vegas, Mexico City and at the Coachella festival in southern California. The full tour kicks off June 23 in Detroit. It reunites Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose with lead guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan. According to Rolling Stone, Slash last shared a stage with Rose in 1993; there was little love lost between them. For the past 20 years, Rose has been the only original bandmember still touring under the Guns N’ Roses moniker.

The band’s 1987 album “Appetite for Destruction” has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and is reportedly the best-selling debut album in history. The consecutive release of “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II” in 1991, and the long tour that followed, marked the end what many fans consider to be the “classic” period of Guns N’ Roses.

Guns N’ Roses last performed in New Orleans on Aug. 29, 1992 at what was then called the Louisiana Superdome. That show, during the latter half of the “Use Your Illusion” tour, was part of a summer-long co-headlining tour with Metallica.
