Guns N’ Roses brought their Not In This Lifetime reunion tour to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA on July 31.

The 17th date on the group’s trek across North America saw the trio of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan deliver a 24-song set of classic, with an emphasis on 1987’s “Appetite For Destruction” – the biggest-selling debut album of all time with more than 30 million copies sold worldwide.

When the summer shows wrap up at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA on August 22, Rose will regroup with AC/DC for ten US dates starting August 27 in Greensboro, NC.

“He's been really good,” raves Angus Young of Axl’s performances. “He prepares himself, ready to go. We sit and chew the fat before we get on, work out what songs we want to do. It's gotta be fun for him, and for us.

“He's more in the Bon style – the rock & roll character. And he's got his own folksy humor. He's pretty quick with a quip. Axl has different vocal ranges. You can hear him one way in a Bon song. Then he can flip and do Brian, the higher register.”

Along with openers The Cult, Guns N’ Roses will next perform at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on August 3.
