Guns N’ Roses Welcomed Back To The Jungle With Surprise Show

After announcing a short 2016 tour that would mark the first time since 1993 that Axl Rose and Slash would play together, the Guns N’ Roses duo surprised everyone by doing an even earlier gig.

Axl Rose teamed up with former bandmate Slash for a surprise show.

The show took place Friday night at the famed Troubadour in Los Angeles. The excitement was so great that the Los Angeles Police Department had to get involved in making sure ticket sales went smoothly.

One male fan in line to buy a ticket even stated that getting a ticket “is more important to me than the birth of my child.” The venue holds fewer than 500 people, so those who managed to get tickets may have considered themselves #blessed.

Though tickets supposedly went on sale at noon at the Tower Records Building, a couple that had lined up at 7:30 a.m. said only a few people behind them in line got tickets. Another who got there at 12:00 p.m. was told the tickets had already been given out an hour earlier.

Celebrities also got in on the action–though perhaps they were able to skip the scramble for tickets. Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, David Arquette, Lana Del Rey, Bradley Cooper and Kate Hudson were all in attendance.

Guns N’ Roses kept their set mostly focused on Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusion. They opened with “It’s So Easy” and took it home with “Paradise City.”

Though the Troubadour staff said no phones were allowed, some people still managed to snag some videos for Instagram.

This wasn’t the first time Guns N’ Roses hit up the Troubadour. The band had played there over 30 years ago.

Other than a few wrinkles and some overcome feuds, not much has changed for the rockers.
