After teasing a raft of new U.S. tour dates including in the Twin Cities last week, Guns N' Roses made it official early Monday morning.

The rockers confirmed they will play U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Sunday, July 30, as part of their extended Not In This Lifetime tour.

It will be the first time since 1992 that a Guns N' Roses lineup featuring both Axl Rose and Slash will have played in the Twin Cities, and it comes after the pair reunited for a tour last year.

They are joined by original bassist Duff McKagan, Use Your Illusion-era keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer, who all toured with Axl Rose on his Slash-less GnR tours in recent years, the Star Tribune's Chris Riemenschneider reports.

A ticket pre-sale starts for Nightrain members starts at 10 a.m. Monday morning, with the public sale starting on Saturday at noon.

Tickets will cost between $35 and $250.

It'll mark the second major rock concert at the $1 billion stadium, coming after Metallica's performance last summer.

It's the also the second major concert announced for U.S. Bank next summer, with Coldplay set to play there on Aug. 12.
