In a new post on X (Formally Twitter), Nikki Sixx said that a Motley Crue tour with Guns N' Roses was on the table and nearly over the line but didn’t quite get there, at least for now…..

Of course, once upon a time the bands did tour together. Both bands originally from Los Angeles, Guns N' Roses came along a couple of years after Motley Crue's debut Too Fast for Love came out in 1981. Which meant, Crue were one of the bands Guns opened for when they were touring in support of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction.

It hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows between the two though, a couple of years after that tour, Izzy Stradlin had a spat with Vince Neil, which led to a feud between the Crue frontman and Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose.

It's been over 30 years since then, and it seems that the two are on good terms now, at least for the most part. Slash and Duff McKagan returned to Guns N' Roses in 2016, and Motley Crue came back from retirement and went on tour with Def Leppard in 2022.

During a Q+A on X (formerly Twitter), a fan asked the bassist whether the bands will tour together in 2025.



Not the first time Sixx has been asked about Guns n Roses as well..
