Welcome To The Joint: Guns N' Roses Announces Hard Rock Residency

August 13, 2012 at 6:31 PM | by | ()

Finally, a musical residency announcement that doesn't involve middle-aged country singers! Instead, today's news involves middle-aged rockers!

Axl Rose and whoever makes up the rest of Guns N' Roses have just announced a 12-date residency of "mind-blowing shows" at The Joint at the Hard Rock starting on Halloween and moving well into November. The AEG Live production is to be called, "Appetite for Democracy." Umm....

Speaking of November and appetites (and ignoring the bit about democracy), will the band play all the great GNR hits? Yes, we think so. The set list has been created exclusively for The Joint and will run through all the band's biggest hits from albums "Appetite to Destruction" through "Chinese Democracy." But as Daily Fiasco pointed out, that last album doesn't really have a hit anyone remembers so it's really up in the air.

Nevertheless, the band's last few shows at The Joint (over New Year's) were sold-out affairs so we predict the same thing will happen with Appetite for Democracy.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 17 at 10 a.m. and start at $45 a piece. You can get yours through the Hard Rock Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, www.ticketmaster.com, www.thejointlasvegas.com or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000. The hotel has also put together room and show packages here starting at $245 a night and which are simply a hotel room and two show tickets.

Great pic

The first few times I looked at it, I thought Axl was wearing a clown nose.


I totally did, too!

Clown nose

Love even more that it's visible from the home page.  Can't wait until the cease and desist order comes from Axl's lawyers.

Which should get dismissed.  Since - that's a clown nose, bro.   (groan).

Lost my appetite...

I like the Joint...
I like middle-aged country singers and rockers...(got a great seat for The WHO already)
I even have a soft spot in my heart for clown noses...
but Axl...no thanks.
