Guns N’ Roses@A.C.C.-Sun.,Oct.29th,2017
Staring in 1985, Guns N’ Roses paid no apology to their attitude into the Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction – the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally.
GNR returned to Toronto for a 30+ song set and they didn’t disappoint.
Some of the unique and surprising songs included: Glen Campbell’s “Wichita Lineman” and The Who’s “The Seeker”
In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy.
The amazing backdrop and graphics, kept the audience wanting more and with six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.
They closed up the show with Paradise City and like their last concert in July 2016, the confetti was flowing like Niagara Falls. Overall, the fans got theirs standard “fix” of GNR songs: “It’s So Easy, Sweet Child O Mine, Welcome To The Jumgle, Mr. Brownstone and Rocket Queen.”
Two thumb up for the return of GNR and maybe they can include: Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin and Gilbert Clarke on selected shows?
Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).
