Edit: these are the bands/Artists i've seen who have played in africa so far

P!nk as part of her I'm Not Dead Tour South Africa (North West, Johannesburg & Cape Town)

Jennifer Lopez as part of her It's My Party Tour Egypt (El Alamein)

Coldplay as part of their Mylo Xyloto Tour South africa (Johannesburg & Cape Town)

U2 as part of their 360° Tour in South africa (Johannesburg & Cape Town)

Outside of Cape Town, Jo'burg and Cairo where have any other world tours gone within the African continent?

I'm no expert but consider they would need to fly in all the gear themselves (what could you get locally?) in a market that has few large promoters of rock shows, with next to no indoor venues that could host the GN'R production, etc. I'm sure all that means it's logistically impossible at this point in time.

I'm not a hundred percent sure about Africa. They played one show in Johannesburg, and even though it was a good turn-out (52,000 people!!), they're were still 7,000 tickets off. I don't think Guns N' Roses is that big in Africa. But if they went with some other band...

There is also the question in how many countries they could play (South Africa excluded)

Not very many...

There is that festival that happens in Morrocco (I forget what it's called), and so that could be an option

The only problem with African venues is you either have small arenas (5,000 - 8,000), or huge stadiums (60,000 +)

I think that if Guns haven't attemped a tour of Africa yet, it will unlikely be happening

I just checked the biggest stadiums on Wikipedia.

Johannesburg, Alexandria, Algiers and Cairo would be the only realistic options for me.

Imagine them playing in North Korea, or some middle eastern countries.

They would love the cold noodles (raengmyŏn) in Pyongyang
