Those of you that have jumped head first into the pool of trust that is a Guns 'N' Roses concert, news was announced today that you're bound to be happy with. According to, concert promoters have confirmed the opening act for the first show of GNR's "Not In This Lifetime" Tour at Ford Field in Detroit on June 23.

Longtime Seattle rock act Alice In Chains will open the first five shows of the tour, including shows in Detroit and Chicago. Alice In Chains came to the forefront of rock and roll in the nineties with hits like "Man In The Box" (1990), "Rooster" (1992), and "No Excuses" (1994) led by the dueling vocals of Jerry Cantrell and the late Layne Staley. Currently, Cantrell continues with the band at lead guitar/lead vocals, joined by original drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez (replaced Mike Starr in 1993), and William DuVall as guitarist and vocalist. DuVall joined the Alice In Chains line up in 2006 after running the punk circuit for decades, most notably with Atlanta-based Neon Christ in the early to mid eighties.

According to Consequence of Sound, Lenny Kravitz will open for GNR for the tour dates booked in the New York and Boston areas.
