Guns N’ Roses launch second Las Vegas residency

Guns N’ Roses launched their second Las Vegas residency on Wednesday and fan-filmed video from opening night is available.

"No Trickery! An Evening Of Destruction", at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, will see the band perform a total of nine shows between May 21 and June 7.

The 29-song set opened with the title track to GNR’s 1008 album, “Chinese Democracy”, before running through a selection of tracks from the group’s catalog.

The band also performed a number of covers, including The Sex Pistols’ “Holidays In The Sun” featuring vocals by bassist Tommy Stinson, “The Seeker” by The Who, and a jam that presented a portion of Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”, plus their recorded covers of songs by Wings (“Live And Let Die”) and Bob Dylan (“Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”).
