As for Australia, no official announcement has been made in this regard. However, a billboard in Melbourne seems to have made just that. Based on a tweet, a Not In This Lifetime tour billboard was photographed in the Melbourne CBD. The ad indicated that the GNR tour date in the city is set on February 14 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Last month, GNR production manager Dale Skjerseth said in an interview that the band’s tour will extend into 2017. This give hope to the band’s fans all over the world that GNR may soon announce tour dates in Australia and Asia.
According to Sydney Morning Herald, the last time GNR performed in Australia was over 25 years ago. The Guns N’ Roses 2016 reunion tour features the reunion of GNR members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan on stage together for the first time in more than two decades.
Meanwhile, GNR fanbase Guns Over Oz has shared on its Facebook page the possible tour dates and venues of GNR in Australia. The site indicated that GNR may probably kick off the Australia leg in the QSAC Stadium in Brisbane on February 7, 2017, will rock Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on February 10, 2017, and the MCC in Melbourne on Valentines Day. The GNR fan site has no prediction for the venue in Adelaide as well as the tour date in Perth.
