Guns N' Roses played the final North American date on their We're F'N Back tour on Sunday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL, and now frontman Axl Rose has taken to social media (opens in new tab) to thank fans during what he admits are "stressful times."

"Again huge thanks to everyone who came out to the shows," tweeted Axl. "A special thanks for everyone for working with us to protect your safety, the safety of each other, the safety of our crew and the venue's crews following our COVID protocol. These are stressful times (which is an understatement) and your cooperation and participation is greatly appreciated and not taken for granted."

Axl goes on to explain how there were a number of industry considerations to be taken into account for the tour to be able to proceed, but that things ran smoothly. He finishes by thanking  Wolfgang Van Halen, whose Mammoth WFH supported Guns N' Roses on the tour. 

On Saturday, Van Halen joined Guns N' Roses onstage at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for the set-closing Paradise City. He reprised the performance the following night.    

Last week Guns N' Roses postponed the Australian and New Zealand legs of their current tour until late 2022. The band's next scheduled shows are in Europe next summer. Full dates below.
