Guns N’ Roses to Play Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal August 19th; is Heavy Montreal Canceled as a Result?

Yesterday, the founders of Heavy Montreal, evenko and Live Nation announced that GUNS N’ ROSES will be performing on August 19, 2017 at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal.

The resurgent Guns N’ Roses and their massively successful Not In This Lifetime Tour continue to show no signs of slowing down as the legendary band storms into 2017 with more than 30 stadium shows lined up across Europe and North America.  Starting on 27 May 2017 at Dublin’s Slane Castle, the Live Nation produced tour will then steamroll into 18 more cities across the UK and Europe including shows scheduled in London, Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Copenhagen and more.  Following the European leg of the tour, the acclaimed band will once again return to North America for even more stadium dates starting on 27 July at the Dome At America’s Center in St. Louis, MO and then move along to 15 more cities across the US and Canada including Denver, Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal, Minneapolis, Miami and more.  Tickets go on sale beginning Friday 9 December at noon on

Heavy Montreal and evenko members will have access to an exclusive presale starting Thursday, December 8 at 10am.

The Not In This Lifetime Tour has sold over 2 million tickets throughout 2016 to become the year’s most successful rock tour proving beyond a doubt that the attitude, spirit and influence of both Guns N’ Roses and the rock & roll genre are as strong as ever.  The history-making Not In This Lifetime Tour, which visited 21 cities (25 shows) in less than 2 months, wrapped the first North America leg last summer before setting its eyes on South America.  In South America, the band completely sold out all 15 dates of the tour including 13 stadium dates.

As part of the Not In This Lifetime Tour tour, Guns N’ Roses have partnered with American Express Invites® who are offering all American Express Cardmembers access to purchase tickets for select dates before the general onsale for the Canadian leg.  Cardmembers can access the presale on Tuesday, December 6.

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivalled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally.  In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion IIoccupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe. Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).

Now, everyone has been concerned and worried that Montreal’s only annual metal fest, Heavy Montreal, will be canceled (or postponed) as a result of this. Evenko will be announcing what will be happening with this festival TOMORROW, December 7th.

In the meantime, save your money because this is going to be an expensive one! Keep in mind THESE PRICES ARE THE SAME GLOBALLY. What will GnR have in store for us?
