Finally! A little over a month after we posted word letting you know that Guns N' Roses was headed to Colorado for its first tour in five years, we have a date. Mark your calendars: GNR (or at least whatever incarnation of the group Axl's fronting these days) is coming to 1STBANK Center on Sunday, December 11. Tickets ($49.50-$79.50) go on sale this Friday, October 28 at noon. What do you think? You there? Or are you one of those dyed-in-the-wool GNR purist who thinks it's not Guns without Slash and the other dudes?
