Guns N’ Roses returned to the stage last night (April 1) at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.
The lineup now seems to be officially confirmed as singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer. Also appearing with them was second keyboardist Melissa Reese, a pop/urban artist who has studied classical voice and piano since she was very young.
A notable feature of the show was Slash performing songs from the band’s “Chinese Democracy” album, a record he was vacant from marking the first time he’s played them live.
Amidst the constant rumors about original drummer Steven Adler appearing as a special guest at last night’s show, he did not perform at the vent. Neither drummer Matt Sorum or guitarist Izzy Stradlin were on hand for the show either.
The Guns N’ Roses setlist included:
01. It’s So Easy
02. Mr. Brownstone
03. Chinese Democracy
04. Welcome To The Jungle
05. Double Talking Jive
06. Live And Let Die (Paul McCartney & Wings cover)
07. Rocket Queen
08. You Could be Mine
09. The Godfather Theme (Slash)
10. Sweet Child O’ Mine
11. New Rose (The Damned cover)
13. Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door (Bob Dylan cover)
14. My Michelle
16. The Seeker (The Who cover)
17. Paradise City
Guns N’ Roses have six more concerts scheduled in April: two at the Coachella Music And Arts Festival, two in Las Vegas and two in Mexico City.
As well, the band on Friday announced details of their summer North American tour, dubbed the “Not In This Lifetime” tour, which kicks off on June 23 at Ford Field in Detroit, and run until August 22 in San Diego.
