PHOENIX — Guns N’ Roses are coming to the real “Paradise City:” The rock-and-roll legends announced they will be stopping in Phoenix on their latest reunion tour.

The group — made up of original vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan, along with the rest of the band — officially announced their North American tour on Friday.

The announcement specified the 21 cities Guns N’ Roses will be hitting on their somewhat-reunion tour and the band will be in the Valley on Aug. 15 at University of Phoenix Stadium.
