Guns N’ Roses performed a special set last night (May 13) to warm up for their upcoming headlining gig at the Rock on the Range Festival. Along with a myriad of classics, GN’R actually busted into a cover of the Who anthem ‘The Seeker.’
Guns N’ Roses blasted through a total of 26 songs during the Bethlehem, Pa., performance, including fan favorites ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ ‘Mr. Brownstone,’ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine,’ ‘Paradise City’ + many others. On top of the GN’R classics, guitarist Bumblefoot, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist DJ Ashba and guitarist Richard Fortus all busted out their own spotlit solos.
We haven’t even gotten in the cover songs yet! Along with ‘The Seeker,’ Guns N’ Roses performed Wings’ anthem ‘Live and Let Die,’ the New York Dolls’ ‘Chatterbox,’ a jam of Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You’ and the GN’R staple ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,’ which was originally recorded by Bob Dylan.
Following Rock on the Range, Guns N’ Roses’ latest Las Vegas residency, ‘No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction,’ will launch on May 21 and close on June 7. The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will host the 2014 Guns N’ Roses Vegas residency. Tickets are available now, so click here to pick some up for yourself!
