Guns N’ Roses, who are all set to start their 2020 world tour on 31st January at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, have confirmed to play an extra show at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London. The announcement came after the presale for their first show in the British capital showed an overwhelming demand. Tickets start at £78 and go all the way up to £935 for the ultimate VIP package in the gold circle standing.
Guns N’ Roses to be the first music act to perform at the new stadium
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, formerly known as White Hart Lane, went under reconstruction for a little more than two years only to become the most multi-purpose stadium in Europe. Besides football, the stadium will host NFL London games, rugby events, and concerts. At a reportedly cost of up to 1 Billion British Pound, the “New White Hart Lane” is the #7 most expensive stadium in the world. The London-based football team financed the project with the help of loans and sponsors, which include well-known brands such as Nike, HSBC, and gambling firms, including Betway and William Hill (read more about sports betting brands and their sister sites).
How to get your hands on tickets
The presale for most of the Guns N’ Roses shows has ended, but seated tickets, as well as VIP packages, are still available. Prices in London start at just under £80 and go all the way up to £1000. That’s if you want to be closest to the stage. To buy tickets online, refer to websites such as Ticketmaster or LiveNation.
Where to stay while in London
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is in the North of London, and if you go for the concert, you want to make sure not to stay miles away. However, the area itself is a little rough so ideally book a hotel or Airbnb in a bordering neighbourhood from where you can take the Overground for the Underground train.
For those of you that like to stay in vibrant areas, Hackney might be the right choice. You will be surrounded by lots of cafes, hip restaurants that serve vegetarian and vegan food, and independent shops. On top, the Overground train from Hackney Downs will take you straight to White Hart Lane.
If you prefer it a little quieter, Highbury & Islington or Caledonian Road might be a good choice. Both neighbourhoods are a little more residential and are situated on the Victoria Line, which takes you all the way to Seven Sisters, the closest stop to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Keep in mind that it’s still a 30-minute walk from the Underground stop.
Whatever area you pick, keep in mind that the end of May is an extremely popular time in London and prices of hotels and Airbnb quickly go through the roof.
