Guns N' Roses
with special guest LĪVE
The resurgent Guns N' Roses and their massively successful Not In This Lifetime Tour continue to show no signs of slowing down as the legendary band comes BB&T Field at Wake Forest University on Friday, August 11.
Special guest for this colossal stadium show will be LĪVE.
Outstanding reviews from around the world crashed in from the start with Rolling Stone dubbing the Not In This Lifetime Tour “the triumphant return of one of the most important bands to cross rock music history.” LA WEEKLY notes it’s “everything fans could hope for” while The Washington Times says the show delivers a set of “inspired surprises.”
Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivalled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe. Guns N’ Roses’ are Axl Rose (vocals, piano), Duff McKagan (bass), Slash (lead guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboard), Richard Fortus (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Melissa Reese (keyboard).
