Guns N’ Roses have shared a video looking back at their 2017 autumn North American tour.

The new video shows highlights from cities including Philadelphia, New York, Washington, Boston, Cleveland, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Billboard report that the reactivated lineup’s Not In This Lifetime tour is the fourth biggest ever, grossing $475 million since it kicked off in 2016 – and it’s set to get even bigger when the band turn their attention to Europe this summer.

Earlier this month, guitarist Slash recalled his first reunion show with Guns N’ Roses and Axl Rose, calling it a “surreal” moment.

He added: “If you had talked to me 20 months ago, I would have said, ‘No fucking way. It’s never going to happen.’ But it did, and it was fucking awesome.

“There were these moments on stage where you sort of take stock of where you are at the moment and go, ‘Wow, this is a trip.’ There was something about this particular tour that didn’t take me back to the last tour in the 90s – it was completely unique in its own new thing. Same guys, same songs – but a whole different experience.”

Guns N’ Roses will headline this year’s Download festival in the UK and will play other dates across Europe this summer.
