Steven Adler Joins Guns N’ Roses Onstage in Los Angeles
Guns N' Roses have enjoyed quite the year as Slash and Duff McKagan rejoined the group, igniting one of the most long-anticipated moments in rock history. While the drum position is Frank Ferrer's, that hasn't stopped the band from inviting iconic drummer Steven Adler to reclaim the drum stool for a couple songs. The classic member joined GN'R onstage for the third time on the 'Not in This Lifetime...' tour last night (Aug. 19).
Enjoying their second consecutive night at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif., Guns N' Roses brought up Adler to a roar of applause and cheers from the crowd. As he had done in Cincinnati, Ohio and Nashville, Tenn., the sticksman performed "Out Ta Get Me" (video above) and "My Michelle" (video below) from the legendary Appetite for Destruction debut.
While "Out Ta Get Me" has been a setlist staple, the same can't be said for "My Michelle" as fans received a double dose of greatness with the song's inclusion and Adler behind the kit. With the drummer back onstage, it left Guns N' Roses just one member shy of a full reunion of the classic lineup. Guitarist Izzy Stradlin has had no involvement with the reunion, but has released a clip of a new solo song recently.
The American leg of the 'Not in This Lifetime...' tour will conclude on Aug. 22 with a series of South American dates remaining in 2016. GN'R have already started looking into next year, booking early dates in both Japan and Australia. Their tour manager, Dale "Opie" Skjerseth has said that the group has concerts lined up deep into 2017 as well.
