Guns N’ Roses

Guns N’ Roses exploded onto the rock scene in the 1980s and went on to dominate the music world for the rest of the decade and on into the 90’s. The band was formed in LA and was fronted by one of the wild men of rock – Axl Rose, backed up by the mysterious Slash on lead guitar, additional guitarist Izzy Stradlin, the bassist was Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler brought up the drums. The band recently reformed briefly for their Not in this Lifetime tour in 2016 which included most of the original lineup.

In 1986 the band signed with Geffen Records and the following year released their seminal album Appetite For Destruction which became one of the most popular rock albums of all time with over 30 million copies sold. This recording and the subsequent touring that went along to support it quickly made Guns N’ Roses one of the most popular bands in the world and filled stadiums of passionate fans. With a lot of expectation riding on their next albums they followed their success up with Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II which collectively sold over 35 million copies. In total, Guns N’ Roses have sold over 100 million albums and successfully completed multiple sell-out world tours.

Following the reformation of the band in 2016, which included original members Axl, Slash, and Duff, Guns N’ Roses embarked on one of the most financially successful tours of all time. By the end of 2017, the Not in this Lifetime Tour had received a plethora of rave reviews and had grossed nearly half a billion dollars.

The bands Midas touch extends to a host of other products that the band or its members have lent their support to such as Slash and a popular beverage, a Guns and Roses video slot, which can be checked out at TopCasinoSites UK, and of course band merchandise.

Following the success of the Not in this Lifetime Tour, there are many who are now half expecting a brand new Guns N’ Roses album to be released which Axl Rose himself has not ruled out.
