On July 17, 1993 the world saw the last of the Guns N’ Roses we knew and loved.
Three nights ago, what we thought was impossible and what Axl Rose himself touted as never happening again – at least, “Not in this lifetime” – happened: after 23 years, the Guns N’ Roses we said goodbye to on a stage in Argentina marked their official return to the stage and guys, we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t absolutely amazing! In a sold out “secret” show held at LA’s Troubadour that sold out within minutes of its announcement early Friday morning, the newly reunited Guns N’ Roses hit the stage with a vitality and passion we haven’t seen from any incarnation of the band in, well, 23 years.
Whether it’s the combination of staying under the radar, a strict diet and workout regimen and vocal training for the past year that’s responsible for the Axl Rose we saw Friday night or just playing with Slash again we don’t know, but the Guns N’ Roses singer looked and sounded absolutely fantastic – he showed up on time and even rocked some of his signature 90’s dance moves during the band’s 17-song set!
With tickets set to go on sale for Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime Tour this Friday at 10am, this is such a great sign of things to come; with the entire band looking healthy, happy, and sounding better than they’ve sounded in decades, this tour just might go off without a hitch – and if the footage below is anything to go by, Guns N’ Roses ticketholders are in for a rockin’ good time.
Welcome back, boys – we’ve missed you!
