Guns N’ Roses‘ “classic” lineup reunited Friday night at Los Angeles’ Troubadour, an intimate gig that marked the first time Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan have performed together onstage since their infamous Buenos Aires gig on July 17th, 1993.
Although cameras and video – including cell phones – were banned from the Troubadour concert, some of the lucky fans in attendance managed to post photos of the reunited group on social media. Below are some of the first photos of Axl and Slash, together again, a sight most GNR fans believed they would never witness again:
Rose, Slash and McKagan were joined onstage by longtime keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Steven Adler. The first songs the reunited GNR performed together were “It’s So Easy” and “Mr. Brownstone.”
Hours after the Troubadour gig was announced, Guns N Roses formally announced their Not in This Lifetime tour, a 20-date stadium trek that kicks off June 23rd at Detroit’s Ford Field and wraps August 22nd at San Diego’s Qualcomm Park. Before hitting the road this summer, GNR have six more April gigs, including a pair of Las Vegas and Mexico City concerts in preparation of their biggest shows: Saturday night headlining slots at both Coachella weekends, April 16th and April 23rd.
