Guns N’ Roses Soar Through the Hits in East Rutherford
Guns N’ Roses brought the rock to the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. on Thursday (Nov. 17) and boy did they rip the roof off. The show took place about 10 miles outside of New York City. Judging from this fan-filmed medley, the band cycled through a parade of hits that kept the crowd’s attention. Rose and co. performed their most well-known and beloved cuts, such as ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ ‘November Rain’ and ‘Paradise City.’ Well, duh. The fans would have rioted in the seats if the band skipped that batch of tunes.
While we hear all the stories about singer Axl Rose and his penchant for showing up whenever the hell he feels like it, he still performs with the stamina of an 18-year-old kid transplanted from Indiana. If you live in the tri-state area and you missed it, you’re probably kicking yourself.
We’re also going to agree with VH1 Class ‘That Metal Show’ host Eddie Trunk and his assessment that Rose has assembled a stellar band to perform with him. GN’R sounds tight as hell and they look great rocking out on that massive stage.
