Got an appetite for destruction? Guns N' Roses will play Detroit this summer! This tour reunites singer Axl Rose with band mates Slash and Duff McKagan, so it's kind of a big deal.

In an enigmatic post on their website titled "Patience," the band linked to a video that just says "coming summer 2016" followed by a list of cities in alphabetical order, including Detroit. Well, the date was just revealed.

The band will kick of their summer stadium tour with a show on Thursday, June 23, 2016 at Ford Field. As is the norm these days, a special pre-sale will be followed by the release of tickets for the non-lawyers among us.

"A CitiĀ® cardmember pre-sale begins Monday, April 4 at 10:00 a.m. local time through Thursday, April 7 at 10:00 p.m. local time through Citi's Private PassĀ® Program. Tickets for the general public go on sale Friday, April 8 at www.livenation.com."
