Their greatest hits have had enough radio rotation to ensure they are soundtrack staples even for the generations that have followed.
Guns N’ Roses’, the world-famous band, or otherwise known as: Axl Rose, Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).
Following the group’s 1985 formation, the band injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally.
Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold-out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.
There were decades where the thought of Slash sharing the stage with Axl seemed next to impossible and that their July 17, 1993 show in Buenos Aires would always stand as the last time the pair ever played together. Then came the announcement of the ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour, as well as the headline slot of Coachella, and now, for the first time ever they will perform in Dubai.
For one night only the Autism Rocks Arena will double up as Paradise City to host the legendary act to a 30,000 capacity show. Even if you were too young to have witnessed them first time around, Guns N’ Roses offer a gateway to a bygone age, with the near mythic allure that comes with survival and revival.
