GUNS N' ROSES Perform First Club Show in 20 Years with 3/5's of Original Lineup!
Yesterday (April 1), the "reunited" GUNS N' ROSES performed a very intimate $10 concert at The Troubador in Los Angeles, California making it the first concert that GUNS N' ROSES plays with 3/5's of the original lineup in 20 years!
As it was expected Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan performed together but the rest of the original lineup - Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler - were nowhere to be found! The rest of the lineup consisted of longtime keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer, all part of the most recent incarnation of the band. The only surprise was the addition of Melissa Reese as second keyboardist (replacing Chris Pitman). Reese is the first female member to ever play in GNR!
As it was expected GUNS N' ROSES performed most of the songs from Appetite For Destruction! Additionally, they performed a few songs from the Use Your Illusion series, a few cuts from Chinese Democracy as well as a few cover songs such as their classic rendition of Bob Dylan's Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door!
