Arriving tonight in our very own "Paradise City" in the coldest month of the summer, the recently reunited Guns N' Roses are set to rock AT&T Park tonight, probably sometime after 8 p.m. and you'll probably be able to hear it from many corners of town. Doors are at 6:30 p.m. and there are still tickets starting at $40 for nosebleed, and going up to $400 for field level.
KRON 4 reports that GNR's stage was being set up at the stadium on Monday, and CBS 5 tells us about a weird blip during the band's set in Houston on Friday apparently the piano Axl was playing started acting "possessed" during "November Rain," playing some dissonant tinkling sounds by itself, and he couldn't get it to stop. He interrupted the song to ask someone to do something, but then he just ended up rolling with it, as you can hear in the clip below.
As announced back in April, this is the first time since the '90s that Axl, Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan have all shared a stage together. Axl was the only remaining, official member of the band for the better part of two decades, famously taking more than a decade to release the album Chinese Democracy, which finally arrived in 2008. It was, reportedly, the most expensive album ever produced, with production costs topping $13 million.
So grab a ticket if you're of a certain age and in the mood to relive your childhood/awkward teen years/college years, or else stand out in your backyard tonight around 10:30 p.m. and you'll probably hear a few verses of "Welcome to the Jungle."
