Guns N’ Roses perform Chinese Democracy rarity for first time in a decade

Guns N’ Roses performed the “Chinese Democracy” rarity, “Street Of Dreams”, during a June 18 show in Prague, Czech Republic.

Axl Rose recorded material for “Chinese Democracy” with a rotating cast of musicians for over a decade before its release in 2008; the project has the reputation of being the most expensive rock album in history, with reports suggesting it cost more than $13 million to complete.

The record debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200, after which it went on to sell a million copies in the region and an estimated 2.6 million worldwide.

Guns N’ Roses are currently playing dates on a European tour that is scheduled to wrap up in Hanover, Germany on July 15, with the group headed to South America for a series of shows in the fall.
