Free Australian Show at a Pizzeria!
Legendary Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed has announced a free one-off Australian show in support of his debut solo album, Rock N’ Roll Ain’t Easy.
Dizzy will be playing Sydney’s Frankie’s Pizza By The Slice on Sunday, 18th February, where he’ll play a selection of classic Gunners tracks, as well as some of his solo material. The show (which is first-come-first-served) will also feature a bunch of local Aussie bands from 5pm, including The Velvet Addiction and The Kids.

Rock N’ Roll Ain’t Easy is set for release on 16th February, just two days before Reed’s show at Frankie’s. For more details about the gig, head to the official Facebook event.
Guns N’ Roses toured Australia at the start of 2017, but said they’ll “be back” to tour down under again in the future.
Rock ‘n Roll Ain’t Easy is 12 tracks of rock (or 13, if you download the digital version, which comes with a bonus track!) with Reed uniting with fellow members of Guns N’ Roses, along with some other greats, including players from W.A.S.P., Quiet Riot, Psychedelic Furs, Thin Lizzy, No Doubt, The Replacements, Queens of the Stone Age, and more.

eed is the longest-serving member of GN’R after singer Axl Rose. He joined the band as a touring member in 1990, during the “Use Your Illusion” era, and has played with most of the original members as well as in all the later editions of the group and the current reunion lineup.
The Pulse Of Radio asked Reed how he’s managed to stay in the band for so long. “I get asked that a lot and it’s really just, I just never really thought about doing anything else, you know, on sort of a permanent basis,” he said. “You know, I kind of feel like I’m in GUNS N’ ROSES and that’s where I was meant to be.”
