Guns N’ Roses continues to add world class talent to their historic Not In This Lifetime Tour. Acclaimed guitarist and song writer, Zakk Wylde, along with Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown will perform on Monday, August 15 at the tour’s University of Phoenix stadium show. These acclaimed artists join the previously announced Alice In Chains, Lenny Kravitz, Chris Stapleton, Skrillex, The Cult and Billy Talent.

Demand for tickets to the Not In This Lifetime Tour continue at an unprecedented pace as additional shows were recently announced including Chicago (July 3), Boston (July 20), New York City (July 24) and two brand new dates in Los Angeles (August 18 & 19). A full list of tour dates is below.  Critics have also hailed the tour as one of the best of the summer.

More than 2 million fans will be part of the most celebrated music event of the past few decades with the tour of the summer, Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime Tour!!  GN’R launched their return in spectacular fashion beginning with the Troubadour in Los Angeles on April 1 for their first live performance in more than 20 years followed by back-to-back arena shows in Vegas filling the house to the rafters, then Coachella for two weekends (April 16 and April 23) including a trip south of the border for two sold out stadium shows in Mexico on April 19-20…April saw almost a half million fans alone in North America!  Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose, Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard). 

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally.  In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.


Zakk Wylde has been immortalized by the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame, countless rock music publications, and Guitar World’s 2012 Rock N’ Roll Roast, where William Shatner, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Scott Ian from Anthrax, and Guns N’ Roses legend Duff McKagan were among the friends and peers who assembled to good naturedly mock Father Zakk’s beard, muscles, and rowdy demeanor. Sharon Osbourne served as roast master, which made perfect sense – after all, it was her husband who plucked Wylde from obscurity on the strength of a demo tape, helping ensure the “bullseye” guitar design would reach iconic status.  One of the modern generation’s few true guitar giants, Wylde served as spiritual successor to the late Randy Rhoads as axeman for Ozzy Osbourne, collaborating and co-writing on Ozzy classics like “Mama I’m Coming Home” and “No More Tears.” His tenure with The Ozzman includes co-writing and recording several studio albums, three live albums, a Grammy for “I Don’t Want to Change the World” and countless world tours and television appearances. Wylde co-wrote Ozzy’s biggest selling album, No More Tears, as well as the bulk of the double platinum Ozzmosis. Zakk Wylde’s powerful pipes, mayhem-inducing charisma, mischievous humor, and instantly recognizable pinch-harmonic driven blues based histrionic guitar shredding have made him the world’s most beloved American Guitar Hero.

Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown is a rock and roll band born of Nashville, TN. Their sound is a soulful patchwork of roots-infused melodies and muscular riffs, all woven tightly with the thread of their alternative psychedelic mystique. It’s as rambunctious, raw and real as rock & roll gets these days. In 2013 the band released “Wild Child,” their first full-length album, which was featured in Rolling Stone, NYLON Magazine, Paste Magazine, Interview, and many more. The band made its television debut on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE in support of the record that helped gain them a cult like following. Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown recently inked a deal with John Varvatos/Republic Records and got right into the studio with celebrated producer/engineer, Vance Powell (Jack White, Seasick Steve). The band release their latest EP, The Wayside, last year to critical acclaim.
