The Welcome To The Jungle rockers have confirmed the new dates for their North American tour.

Guns N' Roses have rescheduled their North America tour for summer 2021.

Axl Rose and co were set to hit the road on 4 July 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but they were forced to postpone the extensive run in May, due to the ongoing threat of the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, the Welcome to the Jungle rockers have announced the new set of dates, with the tour now set to kick off on July 10, 2021 at Summerfest in Milwaukee, before wrapping in Los Angeles on August 19, 2021.

However, the band also announced that a number of select dates would have to be cancelled due to "routing and venue availability issues".

The affected shows are in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Atlanta, Tampa, Arlington, and Indianapolis.

In a statement, the band said: "Hey Gunners, our 2020 North American tour dates are being rescheduled to Summer 2021. The trek begins July 10th, 2021 in Milwaukee, WI at Summerfest and will make stops throughout the US and Canada all Summer, before wrapping in Los Angeles, CA on August 19, 2021. Among these stops, many of our existing 2020 shows will move to a new date at the same venue, while unfortunately a select few will need to be canceled due to routing and venue availability issues that developed during the postponement process. We thank everyone for their patience during this difficult time and look forward to performing for you all next year."
