    Axl Rose and Slash of Guns n' Roses perform live at Rock In Rio II on Jan. 15, 1991, in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

    Guns n' Roses -- who performed at Qualcomm Stadium just last August -- announced on Friday that they would be making an encore appearance in San Diego this fall. 

    The Gunners will transform San Diego into Paradise City on Nov. 28 at the Valley View Casino Center. The Not in My Lifetime Tour (a title that refers to a joke Axl once made about the band ever getting back together) kicked off in Detroit on June 23 of last year and ran through stadium after stadium for two months before stopping in San Diego at our Qualcomm Stadium on Aug. 22, 2016.

    The last time the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees played San Diego prior to that show was way back in September 1992 at a little spot called Jack Murphy Stadium -- you now know it as Qualcomm Stadium. Oh, and their tour co-headliners for that gig? None other than Metallica, who will be playing Petco Park on Aug. 6. 

    Tickets for this November's Not in This Lifetime Tour local stop will be available to the general public go on Friday, July 28, at 10 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com. However, Citi Card members will get first crack at the tickets beginning on July 24 at 10 am. ATT priority presale ticket access begins on July 26, also at 10 a.m. Ticket will cost anywhere from $75 to $225.

    The band reunited last year prompted by weekend headlining gigs at Coachella, then toured extensively to critical acclaim, performing mostly punctual sets. Not busy enough, singer Axl Rose also hit the road as a replacement frontman for AC/DC, whose guitarist Angus Young joined GNR onstage at Coachella. AC/DC lead vocalist Brian Johnson had pulled out of the tour after a medical warning that further concerts could permanently impair his hearing. 

    Friday's announcement of additional dates comes exactly three decades after the release of "Appetite for Destruction," which has sold an unbelievable 30 million copies, according to the band. The international tour will take Guns n' Roses across the U.S. as well as making stops in Canada. San Diego fans who miss out on tickets for the Sports Arena appearance could also possibly see the band the following night at an additional stop in Los Angeles at the Forum that was also added to the tour on Friday. Seats for that show go on sale to the general public at LiveNation.com on Aug. 4.
