While the entire world waits on the release of Chinese Democracy (or the at very least, a definitive leak), Guns N’ Roses tribute acts are faced with a dilemma. Learn the new songs or stick to the classic material? According to the NME, the UK’s premier Guns N’ Roses tribute act, cleverly named UK Guns N’ Roses, is still on the fence.
We’re undecided as to whether or not we play any of the new Guns material next year as we feel it probably won’t be anywhere near the work by the original, and best line-up (in our humble opinion),” they explained in a mailout. “So we’re thinking of naming the New Year tour the ‘Stick To Your Guns Tour 09′.
