Guns N’ Roses will launch a Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel Casino this fall. The series of 12 shows starts October 31 and wraps up November 24.
Guns N’ Roses has teamed up with Hard Rock Hotel Casino to invade Las Vegas with a never-before-seen, one-of-a-kind music experience. Each night, the band will perform an electrifying show featuring a set list created exclusively for The Joint. “Appetite For Democracy” will span the band’s biggest hits from their debut album “Appetite For Destruction” (1987) through their platinum-selling record “Chinese Democracy” (2008). Exact details about the show are being kept under wraps but fans can expect the raw and gritty heavy metal Guns N’ Roses is known for along with a few surprise elements. Produced exclusively by AEG Live, “Appetite For Democracy” is unlike any show the band has ever done before or will ever do again.
“We are ecstatic to announce Guns N’ Roses as our newest residency at Hard Rock Hotel Casino,” said Paul Davis, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel Casino. “This is what The Joint is all about, bringing fans up close and personal with one of the most iconic bands in the world. It will be a truly unique Guns N’ Roses experience!”
“This past New Year’s Eve, Guns N’ Roses tore the roof off The Joint with two sold-out shows. They were incredible; we watched them perform their timeless hits and soon-to-be legendary songs off ‘Chinese Democracy’. Immediately following, AEG Live and Hard Rock began turning our fantasy of having them as a resident artist into a reality,” added Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking at AEG Live, Las Vegas. “To hear one of the biggest bands in the world rip through their catalog of hits is going to be amazing. There is no better way to celebrate the anniversary of their iconic album ‘Appetite For Destruction’ than to present ‘Appetite For Democracy’ at The Joint.”
