VIDEO: Guns N’ Roses release Troubadour club show footage

Guns N’ Roses have released a compilation of pro-shot footage from their April 1 club show at The Troubadour in Los Angeles.

The rare intimate concert before a packed house served as the official launch of the band’s 2016 reunion tour.

The confirmed trio of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan were rounded out with a lineup that included longtime GNR members Richard Fortus on guitar, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Frank Ferrer alongside new addition, keyboardist Melissa Reese.

The 17-song set featured material from the band’s classic era, a pair of tracks from 2008’s “Chinese Democracy”, and covers of tunes by The Who, Paul McCartney & Wings, Bob Dylan, and The Damned.

The surprise club show was offered in sync with the official announcement of the band’s summer stadium tour of North America.

The Not In This Lifetime Tour will open at Ford Field in Detroit, MI on June 23, with shows set to wrap up in San Diego, CA on August 22.

Guns N’ Roses will kick off the arena start to the reunion run with two shows this weekend at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
