VIDEO: Guns N’ Roses debut Catcher In The Rye in Boston

Guns N’ Roses delivered the debut 2016 performance of the “Chinese Democracy” track “Catcher In The Rye” during their second show at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA on July 20.

The band swapped out “Sorry” for the song, which Axl Rose reportdly wrote as a critique of the J.D. Salinger book in dedication to John Lennon after watching a documentary on his murderer Mark David Chapman.

It’s the fifth tune from the 2008 album that the group has performed on the Not In This Lifetime tour, alongside “This I Love”, “Better”, “Sorry” and the title track.

The 25-song set featured several tracks from 1987’s “Appetite For Destruction”, which was released 29 years ago today; it remains the biggest-selling debut album of all time with more than 30 million copies sold worldwide.

Guns N’ Roses will next perform the first of two shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ with opener Lenny Kravitz on July 23.
