These eight shows join a previously revealed run of major festivals that will bring the band to cities across the United States, along with two colossal stadium dates in Mexico. The wide range of festivals GNR will hit include Louder Than Life Festival, Austin City Limits, Exit 111 Festival, and Voodoo Festival.



Guns N’ Roses fans rejoiced when Axl, Slash, and Duff reunited for the Not In This Lifetime Tour back in 2016. Since their unbelievable return, the rock icons have performed 150+ shows for over 5 million fans in stadiums, arenas, and as part of festivals worldwide.  Last year the band made history by performing in Hawaii for the first time ever at Honolulu’s Aloha Stadium.

Special Event: RED DOG at the Red Dog

Rock 100.5 The KATT Presents: 


At The Red Dog

Sunday, July 14th 2019

Red Dog Saloon, 6417 NW 10th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73127

3:00pm start time with Q&A immediately after the film

It takes a village. Sometimes that village is a strip club.
Award-winning country songwriter Luke Dick spent his childhood living in The Red Dog, the rowdiest and most popular strip club in Oklahoma City during the 1970’s oil boom. For five years, it was the place that Luke and his mother called home. As a single, dope-addicted teenage runaway, his mom used a fake I.D. and turned to stripping to make ends meet. He grew up amidst the drugs, the danger, and the never-ending party.
Now 30 years later, Luke has a toddler and a newborn of his own. As he began asking his mom questions about his own childhood, she was much more forthcoming than he ever imagined. Luke decided to travel back to Oklahoma to talk to the people that he once thought of as family. THE RED DOG, directed by Luke Dick himself, is a fascinating story of sacrifice, indulgence and what it takes to come to terms with your own story.
