Guns N’ Roses epitomize the golden age of melodic hard rock from the 80s and is the last outstanding group of that time. Its six albums, driven by the hits “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” “Paradise City,” “November Rain” and “Estranged,” have sold over 100 million copies around the world.
What’s the 2013 version of G N’ R like? A group at the top of their game. They know exactly how to use their talents, and what to use them for. Their recent performance in Brooklyn garnered this review from the well-known Stereogum blog: “Guns N’ Roses, now, is a polished spectacle. It’s a cohesive, streamlined operation, one that almost makes you forget what year it is.”
