Guns N’ Roses Kick Off Las Vegas Residency on Halloween Night
Guns N' Roses have kicked off their nearly monthlong residency in Las Vegas. Beginning on Halloween night, the band ripped through a set where singer Axl Rose gave a far greater performance than he has at recent shows.
After a highly criticized performance by Axl Rose at Neil Young's annual Bridge School benefit show, which was widely distributed online at the expense of Rose, the singer proved that he can still deliver a quality vocal set at this first Vegas show. Additionally, the city of Las Vegas celebrated the Guns N' Roses residency by temporarily renaming Paradise Road as Paradise City Road.
The band ripped through a 29-song set that included covers of Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick in the Wall Pt 2' and Neil Young's 'Don't Let It Bring You Down.' The show also allowed band members Tommy Stinson and Bumblefoot to take lead vocals on their own original songs.
Guns N' Roses' residency at the Joint Las Vegas continues through Nov. 24. For more details and ticket info, click here. Check out fan-filmed footage of Guns N' Roses playing 'Welcome to the Jungle' on Halloween night in Las Vegas below:
