Guns N' Roses Take Over Sin City With Appetite For Democracy

Guns N' Roses are set to take over Sin City this November with 12-date residency at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

 

Press Release : Las Vegas, NV (August 13, 2012) - Las Vegas will never be the same as the world's most iconic rock band, Guns N' Roses, takes over Sin City with their first-ever residency Appetite for Democracy at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this fall. The band will play 12 mind-blowing shows starting Wednesday, October 31 through Saturday, 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.

 

The history-making residency comes on the heels of Appetite for Destruction's 25th anniversary. The groundbreaking record propelled Guns N' Roses into rock music history with songs including "Welcome to the Jungle," "Sweet Child O' Mine," and "Paradise City." Named as one of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" by Rolling Stone, Appetite for Destruction enjoyed one of the longest runs of any hard rock record, remaining on Billboard's "Hot 100" for nearly three years. To date, the album has sold more than 18 million copies in the United States, with worldwide sales in excess of 30 million.

 

"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.
