The Chinese Democracy Tour is rock band Guns N' Roses' concert tour to promote the group's long-delayed album Chinese Democracy. The tour has featured legs in 2001, 2002, 2006 and 2007. The 2001 tour featured three U.S. dates and a Brazilian one, while the 2002 tour included Asian, North American and a few European dates. The band did not tour again until May 2006, when it toured North America again and performed a major tour of Europe. The band's tour continued in 2007 with shows in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Mexico. Their first show after the release of Chinese Democracy (Nov 23, 2008) was held on Dec 11, 2009 in Taiwan. They have at this time scheduled four shows in Asia (one in Taiwan, one in South Korea and two in Japan), thirteen in Canada, twelve in South America and six in Europe.

Band members history

The bulk of the band remained stable throughout the tour: lead vocalist and pianist Axl Rose; keyboardist and backing vocalist Dizzy Reed; bassist and backing vocalist Tommy Stinson; and keyboardist, programmer and backing vocalist Chris Pitman. The main lineup changes were in the form of rhythm guitarists (Paul Tobias from 2001 to 2002, Richard Fortus from 2002 to 2007), lead guitarists partnering Finck (Buckethead from 2001 to 2004, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal from 2006 to 2007) and drummers (Bryan "Brain" Mantia from 2001 to 2006, Frank Ferrer from 2006 to 2007). The final tour lineup—Rose, Reed, Finck, Stinson, Pitman, Fortus, Thal and Ferrer—remained to complete the album, released in 2008. Finck rejoined Nine Inch Nails in 2008, and was replaced by Sixx:A.M. guitarist DJ Ashba in 2009.

Set list repertoire

Guns N' Roses relied on an Appetite for Destruction heavy set list, keeping longtime fans entertained with the older material whilst adding new songs from the upcoming album Chinese Democracy, such as "Street Of Dreams (The Blues)", "Madagascar", and the title track. In 2006, with regard to the leaks, Rose commented, "This is for all you downloading fuckers" and added "Better" and "I.R.S." (more often than not played) and "There Was a Time" (less often) to the set list. However, recent sources have seen that the written set list contained the songs "Prostitute" and "If the World", as well as a possibly returning "Riad N' The Bedouins."

In 2007, the Bumblefoot solos were completely altered, with his variation on "Don't Cry" being made into the full and original songs, thus speculation abounds as to whether the set list will contain more Use Your Illusion–era material, as this was a significant record.

Songs played since 2001: "Welcome to the Jungle", "It's So Easy, "Nightrain", "Out ta Get Me", "Mr. Brownstone", "Paradise City", "My Michelle", "Think About You", "Sweet Child o' Mine", "Rocket Queen" (from Appetite for Destruction); "Patience" (from G N' R Lies); "Live and Let Die", "November Rain" (from Use Your Illusion I); "Knockin' on Heaven's Door", "You Could Be Mine" (from Use Your Illusion II); "Oh My God" (from End of Days soundtrack); "Chinese Democracy", "Madagascar", "Street Of Dreams (The Blues)", "Riad N' The Bedouins" (from Chinese Democracy); "Silkworms" (new song that did not appear on Chinese Democracy)

Songs added in 2006: "Better", "I.R.S.", "There Was a Time" both versions of "You're Crazy", "Down on the Farm", and "Used to Love Her."

Songs added in 2007: "Nice Boys" and "Don't Cry."

Songs added in 2009: "This I Love", "Shackler's Revenge", "Sorry", "Scraped", "Catcher in the Rye", "Prostitute" and "If The World."

Cover songs incorporated in solo-performances or "one-off" performances by the whole band:

- You Gotta Move (The Rolling Stones cover by Dizzy) - Sway (The Rolling Stones cover by the band) - Sossego (Tim Maia cover by Robin) - Sailing (Rod Stewart cover by the band) - Back In The U.S.S.R. (The Beatles cover by the band) - Beautiful (Christina Aguilera cover by Richard and Robin) - Angie (The Rolling Stones cover by Dizzy) - Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie cover by Dizzy) - My Generation (The Who cover by Tommy) - Whole Lotta Rosie (AC/DC cover by Dizzy) - Sonic Reducer (The Dead Boys cover by Tommy)

2001 European Tour

The 2001 European Tour (often referred to as the Chinese Democracy Tour) was a scheduled concert tour by American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, planned in support of the band's then-upcoming sixth studio album Chinese Democracy. Initially due to begin and end in June, many tour dates were rescheduled for December due to the reported illness of guitarist Buckethead. The re-configured tour was later cancelled outright.

Overview

Background

Following the Use Your Illusion Tour, which ran for over two years and visited 27 countries,[1] and the release of cover album "The Spaghetti Incident?" in November 1993,[2] the band began to write new material. Relationships between band members began deteriorating, however, and the future of Guns N' Roses was in doubt. As members turned focus to their own side-projects tensions began to grow.

Gilby Clarke was the first to leave the band, reportedly being fired in June 1994.[3][4] On October 30, 1996 it was announced that lead guitarist Slash had officially left the band, after having not been involved since 1995 due to a poor relationship with vocalist Axl Rose.[5][6] In January 1997, Rose purchased the rights to the name "Guns N' Roses", sparking rumours that he was to pursue the future of the band without his former associates in said band;[6] these rumours were further strengthened in 1997, when bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum left the band.[6] With only one remaining original member, Axl Rose, Guns N' Roses began the search for new musicians, while the former members continued with their respective solo and band careers, with Slash, McKagan and Sorum later forming Velvet Revolver with Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland in 2003.[7]

Robin Finck became the band's lead guitarist in 1997,[8] followed shortly the next year by drummer Josh Freese and bassist Tommy Stinson.[9] Finck left the band in 1999 to rejoin his former band Nine Inch Nails,[10] before the band recorded and released their first new song in six years in the form of "Oh My God".[11] A number of changes to the band occurred in 2000, including the departure of Freese,[12] the hiring of lead guitarist Buckethead[12] and drummer Bryan "Brain" Mantia,[13][14] and the return of Robin Finck.[13][14] Along with these changes came the news that Guns N' Roses were planning a tour in the summer of 2001,[13][14] and would be playing at the Rock in Rio festival in January.[15]

Warm-up shows

The first warm-up show for the upcoming tour of Europe was announced in December 2000 as a New Year's Day performance at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.[16][17] It was also rumoured that the long-awaited Chinese Democracy would be released in June 2001, for which the scheduled European Tour would be promotional.[17] Guns N' Roses – then composed of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarists Buckethead and Robin Finck, rhythm guitarist Paul Tobias (who joined in 1994 to replace Gilby Clarke), bassist Tommy Stinson, drummer Brain and keyboardists Dizzy Reed (still with the band since joining in 1990) and Chris Pitman (who joined between 1998 and 2000) – completed the band's first performance in seven years, which was praised as "a triumphant return" by music magazine Rolling Stone.[18][19] The band performed a number of new songs, including "Oh My God" (released as a single in 1999), "Riad N' The Bedouins", "Chinese Democracy", "Street of Dreams" (all later released on Chinese Democracy) and "Silkworms" (which remains unreleased as of 2009), including a bulk of original songs and 'classics' such as "Welcome to the Jungle", "Paradise City", "November Rain" and "You Could Be Mine".[18][19][20] The Las Vegas show was followed two weeks later by the performance at Rock in Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The performance featured a similar set list, which also included the live debut of new song "Madagascar".[20][21] MTV praised the performance as "The capstone of the third night of the [...] festival", summarising it as "an exciting show."[21]

Cancellations

Guns N' Roses were due to begin their European Tour on June 1 at the German music festival Rock am Ring, but announced in May that they were to cancel the entire tour; according to the band's European management agency, the reason for the cancellation was the illness of lead guitarist Buckethead.[22] With a rescheduling process said to be planned,[22] it was later announced that many of the proposed tour dates would be completed later in the year.[23] On November 8, it was announced that the tour was to be cancelled completely, allegedly due to the ongoing illness of Buckethead, which was also said to have delayed the completion of the upcoming album.[24] The band's manager, Doug Goldstein, apologised to fans for scheduling the tour, which he admitted was a poorly executed decision, with the following statement:

Following the euphoria of [the band's appearance at the] Rock in Rio [concert], I jumped the gun and arranged a European tour as our plan was to have the new album out this year. Unfortunately, Buckethead's illness not only stopped the tour, but it slowed down our progress on Chinese Democracy. I am very sorry to disappoint our fans, but I can assure them that this is not what Axl wanted, nor is it 'Another page from the Howard Hughes of rock,' as some media will no doubt portray it. I made a plan, and unfortunately it did not work out.[24]

Despite not being able to complete their tour of Europe, the full lineup of Guns N' Roses performed two more shows in 2001, both at The Joint, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, on December 29 and 31.[25][26] Songs performed made up similar set lists to those at the January performances.[26]

2004 No Rock in Rio

After the 2002 tour was cancelled the band went into hiatus until they were scheduled to play at Rock in Rio 4 in May 2004. However lead guitarist Buckethead left the band in March 2004 and their appearance was cancelled and Axl Rose made the following statement:

The band has been put in an untenable position by guitarist Buckethead and his untimely departure. On behalf of Guns N' Roses and myself I apologize to the fans who planned to see us at Rock In Rio - Lisbon. The festival and its tradition mean a lot to me personally and I sincerely do not enjoy being robbed by one of our own of the opportunity to be the first artist to play it for the third time. I would also like to express my gratitude to those who chose to embrace Buckethead's role in Guns and support our new line up. We greatly appreciate Bucket's contributions and remain open to 'discussions' as there are obviously several issues to resolve. In the meantime rather than dwelling on the negative, Guns will be moving forward and surprisingly (without giving away any details) this unfortunate set of circumstances may have given us the opportunity to take our recording that one extra step further. Regardless we hope to announce a release date within the next few months.

North American leg

On August 31, 2006, Axl Rose appeared on MTV Video Music Awards as a presenter, noting that the band would go on a North American tour on October 24. Five warm-up shows for the tour were held in September 2006, with two at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas two at Warfield Theatre in San Francisco and one show in Devore for KROQ's Inland Invasion 2006.

Following the band's appearance at Inland Invasion on September 23, a handful of subsequent warm-up shows were postponed, which led to rumours that this was carried out in order to finalize the work on the new album. The rumors were seemingly denied by manager Merck Mercuriadis, who stated that the shows had been merely moved to "fit in with the main body of the tour". He did, however, once again state that Chinese Democracy would be out before the end of the year. The actual tour, again called the Chinese Democracy Tour, was now scheduled to begin on October 20 in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Jacksonville show was moved to October 31, with the October 22 show in Nashville, Tennessee postponed up to January 2007, until being cancelled in December. The tour commenced on October 24 in Sunrise, Florida, now ringing true to Rose's prior statement.

During the 2006 North American tour the band's opening acts included The Suicide Girls, Papa Roach, Sebastian Bach, Die Mannequin and Helmet. The band were also joined onstage by former Gunner Izzy Stradlin[80] and Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich[81] both making one-off appearances. Bubbles, Ricky, and Julian of the Trailer Park Boys made some appearances in Canada. Long-time drummer Bryan Mantia took a leave from his touring responsibilities before the October tour dates to spend more time with his family. He was replaced by his understudy Frank Ferrer. Since then, Ferrer has apparently been granted an official membership in the band, which fueled speculation that Mantia had resigned. During a Florida show in October, Ferrer was introduced as "our newest member" by Axl Rose. Regardless, the band's management has stated that both Mantia and Ferrer are official members.

Eagles of Death metal were supposed to go on tour with Guns N' Roses. On November 24, 2006 in Cleveland, Ohio, during their first concert with Guns N' Roses, the band was not well received by the crowd. When Axl Rose came out to perform, he asked the crowd whether they enjoyed "the Pigeons of Shit Metal", following with an onstage announcement the band wouldn't open for the Guns during the remainder of the tour. Soon after, Eagles of Death Metal released a statement regarding the incident:

"At first the audience refused to welcome us to the jungle, but by the time we took our final bow, it had become paradise city. Although Axl tried to November rain on our parade, no sweet child o' mine can derail the EODM night train. We say live and let die."[1]

Live Earth

They were asked to perform but the band was already touring in Australia and Japan. Axl Rose issued a statement regarding Live Earth and rumors in the Guns N' Roses Website:

Guns N' Roses or myself will not be performing at Rio Live Earth or Live Earth for a couple of reasons. The first is that we were not asked until the last couple weeks while we were on tour in Australia and have upcoming sold-out dates already rescheduled in Japan. Our gear is already en route to Japan for these shows. We have attempted to find a solution to be able to perform in Rio, but unfortunately none has been suggested.

I was asked to perform individually with Lenny Kravitz by the promoters and Mr. Gore. As we were working this out, Lenny unfortunately became injured and temporarily canceled his involvement from the event. According to the promoters, by the time they had reconfirmed Lenny's performance, there wasn't enough time to arrange flights for myself to Brazil and then to Japan for our upcoming shows. Unfortunately, I was not informed that Lenny's performance was reconfirmed until our own explorations and in following the media surrounding the event today, which is Saturday morning here in Australia and Friday in Brazil.

Guns N' Roses or I were not asked to play anywhere else such as Japan or Australia (as we are already in the regions on tour) and in which we have formally offered to perform but the offer of our involvement was declined.

We wish all involved, the performers, the organizers, the fans and audiences around the world all the best and a very successful event.
