The reformed Guns N’ Roses announced opening acts for some of the dates on their upcoming Not In This Lifetime Tour on Wednesday. Alice in Chains and Lenny Kravitz will provide stints of support for the string of 25 gigs that kicks off June 23 in Detroit and wraps August 22 in San Diego.

Alice in Chains will open the first five shows of the tour, warming crowds up in Detroit (June 23), Washington, D.C. (June 26), Kansas City (June 29), and Chicago (July 1 and 3). Kravitz will perform at four July shows in Foxboro, Mass. (July 19 and 20) and East Rutherford, N.J. (July 23 and July 24)

Opening acts for the remaining dates have not yet been announced. The Not In This Lifetime Tour follows the band’s reunion gigs at Coachella and in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Mexico City. Frontman Axl Rose broke a bone in his left foot at one of those shows, but has soldiered on, providing last-minute relief as a singing replacement for Brian Johnson during AC/DC’s current tour.
