Guns N’ Roses headed to Hershey, PA on Saturday to kick off their re-shuffled 2021 We’re F’N’ Back North American summer tour featuring support from Mammoth WVH, the Wolfgang Van Halen-fronted band making its debut on the road.
The Hersheypark Stadium performance marked the first live performance by Guns N’ Roses since a March 14th, 2020 festival appearance in Mexico.
As was the case with the band’s extensive 2016–2019 Not In This Lifetime trek, the current Guns N’ Roses tour features veteran band members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), and Axl Rose (vocals) backed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese.
