Like it or not, GN’R is back. For how long, is to be determined.
But for now, the band is setting out on an extensive arena tour this summer . This marks the first time that the original members, Axel Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, will perform together in over 23 years.
Last night, they performed their first show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. With a capacity of about 500, (think The Horseshoe Tavern), the show would have been an unforgettable experience for those in attendance. For those of us that weren’t there, plenty of videos and photos from the gig were on social media moments after the band hit the stage.
The set list featured some old favourites, some serious covers, and even some tunes from 2008’s, Chinese Democracy. Check out the set list below:
