Axl Rose Leaves the Door Open for New Guns N' Roses Music

Axl Rose won't say if Guns N' Roses is considering writing new music with its partially reunited lineup, but he won't say it's out of the question either.

In a recent interview with an Icelandic publication prior to the final night of GNR's European tour, Rose was asked whether he would try and capitalize on the wild success of the Not in This Lifetime tour with some new material.

"Right now our focus is on touring and the shows, but everyone seems to be getting along so you never know," Rose said.

Indeed, there have been nothing but positive reports regarding the band's dynamic on the road. 

"Everyone just wants to do the best for the fans, each other and our crew," Rose continued. "Everyone pushes each other with their performance and commitment. And with highlights, every show, every crowd is different with something to remember about each one."

Of course if Guns N' Roses does decide to record new music, it would have to work around Slash's upcoming fall tour and Axl Rose's writing sessions with AC/DC (IF the rumors are true).

On Tuesday Guns N' Roses performed the largest concert in the history of Iceland when they packed 25,000 people into the Laugardalsvollur soccer stadium in Rekyjavik. The concert's attendance amounted to about 7 percent of Iceland's entire population.

It was the second historic concert in four days for the band. GNR's July 21 concert at Gothenberg's Ullevi Stadium was attended by 64,289 people, setting a new record for concert attendance in the county. GNR beat out the previous record of 63,036 set by Metallica in 2015.

Since launching in the spring of 2016, the tour has been one the music industry's most lucrative, earning nearly half-a-billion dollars over 125 shows and selling millions of tickets worldwide. The current leg of the band's European tour kicked off in early June. 

Following the last show of the tour tonight, July 24, GNR will be off the road until November, when the band heads to Asia. 

The band reached another milestone about a week ago, when it became YouTube's most-viewed musical artist from the '80s and '90s, surpassing over 1 billion views on the music video for "November Rain."

The band's iconic debut 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction, recently rocketed back into the Top 10 after the band's Locked N' Loaded reissue was released in late-June.
