Asked about new music back in January guitarist Slash told “Stuff is happening, but there are no specifics. More than anything, it’s because of the nature of the industry right now. It’s just like, how do you want to do this? I mean there’s material and there’s recording and there’s shit going on, but we’re not really sure what we’re doing with it right now.”

Meanwhile GNR were set to play UK dates this month, with two gigs taking place at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 29 and 30 May.
