The Chinese Democracy Tour was a worldwide concert tour by hard rock band Guns N' Roses to promote the group's long-delayed album Chinese Democracy.

The tour began in 2001. That year the band played three U.S. dates and a Brazilian one, while their 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 2008 release of Chinese Democracy was in Taiwan on December 11, 2009. In the same month the group played South Korea for the first time, as well as two dates in Japan. Since 2010 the tour has continued with concerts in North America, South/Central America, Europe and Australia. As of late 2010, the entire tour had attracted a total audience of about 4,000,000 people. The ten year tour came to a close on the final day of 2011, with a New Year's Eve show in Las Vegas.

Band members history[edit]

The bulk of the band remained stable throughout the tour: lead vocalist 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 present), lead guitarists partnering Finck (Buckethead from 2001 to 2004, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal from 2006 to present) and drummers (Bryan "Brain" Mantia from 2001 to 2006, Frank Ferrer from 2006 to present). The 2006/2007 tour lineup—Rose, Reed, Stinson, Pitman, Finck, 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.

2001 European Tour[edit]

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.

Background[edit]

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] Drummer Matt Sorum was fired from the band after an argument with guitarist Paul Tobias, and Duff McKagan became the last original member to leave in 1997.[6] With only one remaining original member, Axl Rose, and one other member from the "Use Your Illusion" lineup, Dizzy Reed, 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. Finck left the band in 1999 to rejoin his former band Nine Inch Nails,[9] before the band recorded and released their first new song in six years in the form of "Oh My God".[10] A number of changes to the band occurred in 2000, including the departure of Freese,[11] the hiring of lead guitarist Buckethead[11] and drummer Bryan "Brain" Mantia,[12][13] and the return of Robin Finck.[12][13] Along with these changes came the news that Guns N' Roses were planning a tour in the summer of 2001,[12][13] and would be playing at the Rock in Rio festival in January.[14]

Warm-up shows[edit]

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.[15][16] 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.[16] 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.[17][18] 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 2012), including a bulk of original songs and 'classics' such as "Welcome to the Jungle", "Paradise City", "November Rain" and "You Could Be Mine".[17][18][19] 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".[19][20] MTV praised the performance as "The capstone of the third night of the [...] festival", summarising it as "an exciting show."[20]

Cancellations[edit]

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.[21] With a rescheduling process said to be planned,[21] it was later announced that many of the proposed tour dates would be completed later in the year.[22] 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.[23] 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.[23]

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.[24][25] Songs performed made up similar set lists to those at the January performances.[25]

2002/2003 World Tour[edit]

Chinese Democracy Tour 2002 was a tour by Guns N' Roses which was the band's first major tour since 1993. The North American leg was organized in the autumn of 2002 to support the supposed release of Chinese Democracy, and was announced on September 25, 2002 as the Chinese Democracy Tour. Thirty-five dates had originally been scheduled, but the band ended up performing at only sixteen.

Set list[edit]

Madagascar, Chinese Democracy and Street of Dreams were played frequently while Riad N' The Bedouins was dropped a few dates later. Welcome to the Jungle opened the show and Paradise City ended the encore on all dates.

Personnel[edit]

The only line-up change for this tour was the addition of rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus, replacing Paul Tobias due to the fact the latter no longer wished to tour. However, Tobias never officially left the band and continues to work with them. The touring line up for the 2002 tours of Europe, Asia and North America consisted of:

* First show of the Chinese Democracy World Tour and it's in China. As the band came on late, maybe 90 minutes after the opening band.
** First Japanese show of the tour in front of 30,000 people. One of GN'R's fog machines was mounted way up high in the lights blew up right before showtime, showering the stage with slippery fog oil. GN'R ended up being 40 min late, while tech guys used just about every towel in the stadium to make the stage safe.
*** In a surprise appearance, the band played a set consisting of "Welcome to the Jungle", "Madagascar", and "Paradise City". The performance was meant to be kept a secret, but some New York radio outlets announced the performance earlier in the day.

2004 At Rock in Rio Lisbon[edit]

After the 2002 tour was cancelled the band went into hiatus until they were scheduled to play at Rock in Rio Lisboa 1 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.

Buckethead left Guns N' Roses, according to his manager, due to "Guns' inability to complete an album or tour".

2006/2007 World Tour[edit]

Guns N' Roses performing Paradise City at Globen on June 26, 2006.

The Chinese Democracy Tour 2006 was a concert tour by Guns N' Roses promoting their upcoming album Chinese Democracy. It started in May 2006 when the band launched a European tour, headlining both the Download Festival and Rock in Rio Lisboa. Four warm-up shows preceded the tour at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, and became the band's first live concert dates since the short 2002 tour. The shows also marked the debut of virtuoso fusion guitarist and composer Ron Thal (a.k.a. Bumblefoot) on lead guitar, replacing Buckethead. During the course of this tour, Izzy Stradlin and Sebastian Bach made frequent guest appearances. The European dates played to over 700,000 people during 32 shows in 18 countries.

Set list[edit]

The band brought You're Crazy, Used to Love Her and Down On The Farm for some dates. Better, I.R.S. and There Was a Time made their live-debut reinforcing rumors about a Chinese Democracy release in 2006.

Personnel[edit]

The only line-up change for this tour was that of guitarist Ron Thal replacing the departed Buckethead. Also, drummer Bryan Mantia missed the second half of the European tour because of the birth of his daughter in early July. He was temporarily replaced by session drummer Frank Ferrer. The line up of the European and North American Tours was:

* First show for the new third guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.
** Izzy Stradlin joined the band on stage.
*** In addition, Guns N' Roses were supposed to open for two dates of The Rolling Stones' A Bigger Bang Tour in Germany on the European leg of the tour, but because of Keith Richards' infamous fall from a tree in Fiji, those shows were cancelled.

North American leg[edit]

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[97] and Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich[98] 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."[12]

* Izzy Stradlin joined the band on stage.
** Lars Ulrich performed on drums with GN'R.
** Cancelled in order for the band to complete the album in January to have a March 2007 tentative release date.[108] However, the album wasn't completed in time for a March 6 release.

2007 World Tour[edit]

Chinese Democracy Tour 2007 was a continuation of the previous tour promoting Chinese Democracy. The album had a tentative release date in March according to Axl Rose, but it didn't materialize. The band continued touring in Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico. They also performed two songs at Rodeo Drive's Walk of Style.

Set list[edit]

Nice Boys and Don't Cry were new additions to the setlist on this tour. This was the first appearance of these two songs in a live setting since 1993.

Walk of Style Ceremony[edit]

This performance featured keyboardist Chris Pitman on bass guitar, as Tommy Stinson was unable to attend due to a personal family issue. They played acoustic versions of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and "Sweet Child O' Mine" to close out the ceremony.[109]

Live Earth[edit]

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.

My Coke Festival[edit]

The band pulled out of the festival after bassist Tommy Stinson failed to recover from a wrist injury he sustained when he fell down a flight of stairs.

2009–2012 World Tour[edit]

Rumors started in February that Guns N' Roses would perform Spain and Italy in June,[129] and continued through the year with comments from Irving Azoff about a Summer Stadium Tour[130] but nothing happened.

On November 10, 2009 after speculation about shows in Japan, the band announced on their MySpace four dates in Asia and thirteen in Canada.[131] More dates were added later for South America and Europe.

On August 15, 2010, a cancellation notice for the remaining shows of the tour was posted on Rose's Twitter. The statement would later be refuted on the official Guns N' Roses Twitter and Facebook, with claims that the tweets were being looked into.[132] Several hours later, the band confirmed that Axl's account had been hacked, and the band would in fact continue the tour.[133]

Following the events that took place at the Reading Festival where the organizers pulled the plug on their set because they passed the curfew time, Axl Rose released the following message via his Twitter account:[134]

Our start times at the Reading and Leeds festivals factually had nothing to do with us as the previous bands (who were great by the way) came off stage when they did and we went on within' our contracted and documented changeover time period.

Whatever other nonsense anyone's choosing to write would appear intentionally false.

Having the fans or our show penalized for how the event was run or simply the natural flow of events those evenings and for such minimal amount of overtime along with distortions and falsehoods by media, the promoter and or event organizers regarding the events seems a bit draconian and more than unfair to the fans.

A simple question: If you are aware of our changeover time, the average length of our show and the general nature of how these types of festivals run all of which are no big secrets...why book us?

Is it simply because the lineup on our nights at both festivals sold well? So it's a cash grab with no respect for the fans or the band and somehow an unwanted inconvenience for the cities and law enforcement? If we're not wanted and just being used to line someone else's pockets or for fictitious tabloid fodder at the fans and our expense we're fine with going elsewhere. God forbid we would force ourselves on anyone. It's not that kinda party.

I didn't organize, arrange, authorize, have knowledge of or was even consulted about our being booked for these shows till after the fact nor did I choose to work with anyone I'm aware of other than our manager who was involved in arranging these dates. Yet it would appear we're amazingly often legally obligated to honor such arrangements whether against our will or better judgment. That's simply and unfortunately how this business often works with the artist and imo seems is legally supported to benefit managers, agents, promoters and ticket vendors.

With how the fans and we were treated in the past I had what I feel were legitimate and now proven justified apprehensions. Yet we gave 100% and from where we stood it seemed as if the both the fans (who rocked!) and our camp were having fun and making the most of things.

Why (and what would appear intentionally) risk having it go bad for everyone? Imo that's where true recklessness and negligence at both the fans and our expense would seem to be.

Anyway...thanks again to all the fans who made our nights!!

Peace!!

Axl-

Towards the end of the European leg, Duff McKagan joined Guns N' Roses onstage for the first time in seventeen years on October 14, playing bass on "You Could Be Mine" and guitar on "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", "Nice Boys" and "Patience" at London's O2 Arena.[135]

On November 5, 2010, DJ Ashba confirmed the tour would continue across the U.S. in 2011. When asked about a new album, he said:

We've been throwing around a bunch of ideas and it should be good, man. We've got a lot of good stuff on the plate coming out. It won't take as long, I promise. Yeah, I'm excited to get this next one rolling. A lot of great shit. Axl [Rose, vocals] has a lot of good shit up his sleeve, so I'm really excited about it.-

On October 2, 2011, the band came back to South America playing Rock In Rio in front of 100,000 people. After passing through Argentina, Chile and Paraguay, the first US tour in 5 years took place with positive reviews.

Set list[edit]

All of the songs from Chinese Democracy with the exception of "Riad N' The Bedouins" were played at the show in Tokyo, along with nine songs from Appetite for Destruction. A cover of AC/DC's "Whole Lotta Rosie" has also been frequently played. In 2011, the band added "Estranged" to the set. The Tokyo setlist below is the longest set Guns N' Roses has ever played. The setlist on the right is a typical setlist from the 2011 tour.

Personnel[edit]

The only line-up change for this tour was that of guitarist DJ Ashba replacing the departed Robin Finck. Frank Ferrer remained as drummer, even with reports that Bryan "Brain" Mantia rehearsed with the band before the tour. There has been no official word on whether or not Brain has left the band, however Axl Rose mentioned him in the interview with Del James (2009) still working on things for the band, most likely in a studio capacity.[136]

Supporting acts[edit]

Songs played[edit]

Guns N' Roses relied on an Appetite for Destruction heavy set list 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.

In 2007, the Bumblefoot solos were completely altered, with his variation on "Don't Cry" being made into the full and original song, thus speculation abounds as to whether the set list would contain more Use Your Illusion–era material, as this was a significant record. Two more songs from these records were added to the set list in 2011 when they started playing "Estranged" and "Civil War" regularly.

Songs played between January 1, 2001 and December 31, 2011.[272]
