VANCOUVER - Guns N’ Roses are returning to Canada’s west coast.

As part of the classic rock band’s Not In This Lifetime tour, Axl Rose and bandmates will be playing Vancouver Sept. 1, 2017. Currently the band includes members of the original lineup from the early 1990s, including famed guitarist Slash.

One of the biggest hard rock bands ever, they’re known for hits like Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City and November Rain.

Tickets for the show are already on sale with prices ranging from $65 to more than $1,200 on Ticketmaster's website.

This will be the bands second show in the city since the Nov. 7, 2002 tour date ended in a riot after the band failed to appear.
