GN'R add Chinese Democracy listening events in 9 US cities

The official Chinese Democracy listening party in Sweden and the win-your-own-roller-disco type affair in the UK may provide the first opportunity to own GN'R's latest album, but you'll need to be in the US to really hear it before anyone else. The band have announced pre-release listening events in 9 US cities…

Beginning on 17 November, each event is free and open to anyone who turns up. If you pre-order Chinese Democracy on Best Buy and take along your receipt you'll also get "front of line access." Not to mention a free exclusive GN'R t-shirt, while stocks last.
