Watch Guns N’ Roses Absolutely Crush Their Tour Opener In Detroit

first_imgSeminal Rock band Guns N’ Roses are officially back on tour. After the shocking January announcement that Appetite for Destruction-era members Slash and Duff McKagan would rejoin the band for a few shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and two headlining shows at Coachella, fans have been chomping at the bit to see the band hit the road on a proper tour. Well, fans got what they asked for last night, as Guns N’ Roses played an incredible show at Detroit’s Ford Field last night to kick off their 25-date “Not In This Lifetime” stadium tour, as originally reported by Rolling Stone.Famous in more recent years for their absurdly late start times, Guns N’ Roses actually took the stage two minutes early at 9:43pm, possibly a tongue-in-cheek reference to their past transgressions, and definitely as a sign that they were ready to blow the roof off the place. The band opened with “It’s So Easy”, before setting the audience afire with their Appetite for Destruction hit “Mr. Brownstone.” GNR ran through most of their most famous tunes, as “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Rocket Queen,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “November Rain,” and “Nighttrain” were all played throughout the evening, leaving the crowd in awe as they got to experience this long-broken-up band playing one hit after another. Singer Axl Rose impressed throughout with his ridiculous vocal range, and Slash melted faces with his incredible guitar playing, including a show-stopping cover of “Love”, the theme from The Godfather that served as a de-facto intro to “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.Guns N’ Roses have always included a series of covers in their sets, and they are a band that always knows how to make the tracks their own. Last night’s show showcased some of their best covers, as the band busted out “Live and Let Die” by Wings, “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan, and “The Seeker” by The Who.Watch Guns N’ Roses tear apart their classic “Welcome to The Jungle” below, courtesy of YouTube user VideoGremmie:Watch video of Slash rip up “Love (Theme from The Godfather)” before leading the band into “Sweet Child O’ Mine” below, courtesy of YouTube user Andy Schupbach:Watch GNR play their epic ballad “November Rain” below, courtesy once again of VideoGremmie:Watch the finale of “Paradise City” below, courtesy of YouTube user Uncle Sam – Alive In Detroit:Check out the full setlist below, and welcome back to the road Guns N’ Roses!Setlist: Guns N’ Roses at Ford Field, Detroit, MI – 6/23/2016Set: It’s So Easy, Mr. Brownstone, Chinese Democracy, Welcome to the Jungle, Double Talkin’ Jive, Estranged, Live and Let Die (Paul McCartney & Wings cover), Rocket Queen, You Could Be Mine, Raw Power, This I Love, Civil War, Coma, Speak Softly, Love (Theme from The Godfather/Andy Williams), Sweet Child O’ Mine, Better, Out Ta Get Me, Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd cover), November Rain, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door (Bob Dylan cover), NightrainEncore: Don’t Cry, The Seeker (The Who cover), Paradise Citylast_img read more
