Some bands take a hiatus with the intent to reform two years later. Some bands call it quits but go on to form side projects with various members of their previous band. Meanwhile, others find themselves in what feels like a never-ending feud, leaving even their biggest fans to wonder if a reunion could ever happen. The latter scenario was of course the case for ’80s hair metal legends, Guns N’ Roses.

After 23 long years and several million Halloween parties where at least one person showed up dressed as Slash, Guns N’ Roses is back on the road.

Shortly after playing a small April Fools show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, Guns N’ Roses founding members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan traveled to the Sin City where they brought the house down at their first “official” show since 1993. The band’s electrifying set included classics like “Welcome To The Jungle”, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Paradise City” off their best selling debut Appetite For Destruction. The only setback? Axl’s broken foot.

Despite the fact that cell phones were forbidden at both of these shows (GNR management requested that all phones be collected upon entry), we did manage to find a few fan recorded clips of GNR’s performances of “Welcome To The Jungle” from their gig in LA, as well as “It’s So Easy”, “Mr. Brownstone” and “November Rain” from their comeback show in Las Vegas. You can watch all of these videos below.
