Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve no doubt heard about the Guns N Roses reunion tour that kicked off in April of this year with shows in Las Vegas and at the Coachella Music Festival. After years of speculation, fans were excited that 2016 proved to be the year it happened for real. In particular, fans were treated to performances of some songs the band hadn’t played live together in over two decades. Rolling Stone reports:
The performance of “Used to Love Her” marked the first time Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan had played the Lies cut together since their infamous July 17th, 1993 concert in Buenos Aires, their last show together before their 23-year breakup. The last “Out Ta Get Me” to feature that GN’R trio came in September 1992.
GNR heads back out on tour next week starting with a stop at Ford Field in Detroit on June 23rd. For now, get your fix by playing this Spotify playlist.
