Well, it finally happened. After months of talks and rumors, here are the first photos of Axl Rose and Slash together again in Guns N’ Roses intimate exclusive show at the Troubadour.
It happened on Friday night where the ” classic ” GnR lineup took the stage at the Los Angeles’ Troubadour. It was a surprise intimate show that ended a 23 years dispute between the band members. Slash, Axl and Duff McKagan performed together onstage for the first time, in a long time.
In the photos below you can see for the first time Axl and Slash together again, a sight that most GnR fans thought they would never see in their lifetime, there aren’t many photos of the show as cameras and cellphones were banned at the door, but some lucky fans in the crowd managed to sneak some in and posted the images on social media which of course went viral instantly.
The lineup was almost complete with Rose, Slash and McKagan as the original band members and longtime keyboardist Dizzy Reed, Richard Fortus on rhythm guitar and Frank Ferrer on the drums. The band also had their first ever new female keyboardist Melissa Reese who got a chance to create history with the guys. If you’re wondering what was the setlist, the band started with ” It’s So Easy ” and ” Mr. Brownstone ” Guns N’ Roses Troubadour Set List 1. “It’s So Easy” 2. “Mr. Brownstone” 3. “Chinese Democracy” 4. “Welcome to the Jungle” 5. “Double Talkin’ Jive” 6. “Live and Let Die” (Wings cover) 7. “Rocket Queen” 8. “You Could Be Mine” 9. “Speak Softly Love” (Andy Williams cover) 10. “Sweet Child O’ Mine” 11. “New Rose” (The Damned cover) 12. “Better” 13. “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” 14. “My Michelle” 15. “Nightrain” 16. “The Seeker” (The Who cover) 17. “Paradise City”
Just hours after the Troubadour gig was announced, Guns N’ Roses officially called their Not In This Life Time tour which is a 20-date stadium tour that will kick off June 23rd at Detroit’s Ford Field and will end August 22nd at San Diego’s Qualcomm Park.
But before all that, the band have six more shows to do just in April, including a double show at Las Vegas and Mexico City before they headline both Coachella on April 16th and April 23rd. Exciting times ahead? I think so
