Four years after reuniting in Detroit to kick off one of the highest-grossing rock tours in history, Guns N’ Roses is headed back to some of North America’s biggest venues.

Guns N’ Roses announced Mondaya 19-city tour that will start July 4 in Milwaukee and wrap up Aug. 26 in Montana. GNR joins a growing list of artists playing ballparks this summer, in what’s shaping up as one of the busiest stadium concert seasons in recent years.

Tickets will go on sale at noon Friday via LiveNation.com. A presale for Citi credit card holders will run from noon Tuesday through 10 p.m. Thursday.

The band’s Not in This Lifetime Tour, which launched in June 2016 at Detroit’s Ford Field, reunited Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan for their first shows together in 23 years. The three-year globetrotting outing went on to play to more than 5.5 million fans while tallying more than half a billion dollars at the box office.

Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses plays to the Ford Field crowd in Detroit on June 23, 2016.

The newly announced 2020 tour will include dates in baseball and football stadiums in cities such as Boston, Philadelphia, New York and the band’s hometown of Los Angeles — where GNR will be the first act to play the new SoFi Stadium.

The lineup of Rose, Slash and McKagan is rounded out by keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer.
