Guns n Roses Ready to Take Over Sin City

Las Vegas fans of Guns n Roses are getting ready for a 12 show marathon of the ‘Appetite for Democracy’, starting on Halloween.  The hard rock band will take over the Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for a number of shows through November 24, and despite all belief to the contrary, Axl Rose promises to be on time and ready for a good show.

The shows are expected to be a highlights reel of some of the band’s most mind-blowing songs.  The tour itself gets its name from the initial album Appetite for Destruction, and the band’s latest release Chinese Democracy.  Rose himself spent many years in Vegas during the time he disappeared from the public eye, although he admits he wasn’t much of a gambler during those years.

“I spent a lot of time in Vegas and didn’t get bothered. I wasn’t gambling or partying at the time. I’d go walking at night, just watching people. I was out more than people thought.”

Rose says he is trying to reign in some of his bad habits that have caused public relations disasters at many live shows over the years.  He is the only remaining member of the original Guns n Roses lineup, which garnered the nickname ‘the world’s most dangerous band’ in their early years.  He says many of the live show disasters were due to his expressing genuine pain about his younger life.

“I could beat my mike stand into the stage but I was still in pain. Maybe fans liked it, but sometimes people forget you’re a person and they’re more into the entertainment value.”

The first show kicks off at 8pm Halloween night inside the Joint.
