Guns N’ Roses stream 2018 Download Festival footage

Guns N’ Roses are streaming footage of a 2018 headlining appearance at the UK’s Download Festival as the latest video in their new streaming concert series “Not In This Lifetime Selects.”

The group are sharing five songs from the June 9 show at Donington Park, where they delivered a 3-hour, 28-song set of classic tracks and covers, including the third 2018 performance of the 2004 Velvet Revolver track, “Slither.”

The tune was the lead single from “Contraband”, the debut album by Velvet Revolver – which featured GNR members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, and entered the US Billboard 200 at No. 1 on its way to sales of more than 2 million copies in the country.

The Not In This Lifetime tour topped the $580 million mark at the end of 2019 to earn a spot as the No. 3 highest-grossing tour in the history of the Billboard Boxscore chart.

Guns N’ Roses recently postponed the 2020 North American leg of the ongoing tour due to the covid-19 pandemic; the two-month series was scheduled to open with a headline appearance at Milwaukee’s Summerfest in early July before hitting Philadelphia, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, Chicago and other major cities.
