Duff McKagan opening for Guns N’ Roses this weekend

Duff McKagan is opening two shows for his former group, Guns N’ Roses, this weekend.

McKagan’s band, Loaded, will open for GNR at the Key Arena in Seattle on Friday and at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum on Saturday.

These shows mark the first time that founding GNR bassist McKagan will open for the current version of the group, fronted by Axl Rose, the sole remaining member of the band's classic lineup.

Duff actually joined GNR last fall in London for four songs: "You Could Be Mine," "Nice Boys, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and "Patience."

The October 14, 2010 show made headline around the world as it was the first time McKagan had performed with GNR in 17 years.

The London gig happened by accident, as Duff was in the UK for business meetings and was staying at the same hotel as the band.

On the heels of last week’s announcement that GNR are being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame next spring, this weekend’s shows are sure to be electric.

Stay tuned!
