During my lunch break on Friday, I saw a few tweets announcing a Guns N’ Roses impromptu concert at the Troubadour…. Errr wasn’t it April 1st? The link redirected to the band’s website with a page saying April Fools? But there was a question mark after fools and I got convinced it was one of these bad tricks people do to mark this special day,… Guns’ N’ Roses announced the same day a giant tour in stadiums and arenas across the country starting April 8th in Las Vegas, but the Troubadour? This small very intimate West Hollywood venue? There’s no way!
It turned out it was not an April Fools’ joke after all! I didn’t even try to see how I could buy tickets, but at the end, does it matter? Certainly not! I was stuck at work and a sea of people had already invaded Sunset boulevard, lining up in front of the old Tower Records store out of the places! Let me check the date, are we back in the 90’s? There even was a new display of Guns N’ Roses memorabilia inside the store, and all these fools lined up in the hope to buy a $10 ticket to see the re-formed hard-rock band, featuring frontman Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan, along with other players.
How many got a ticket? Very few! Merchandize to commemorate the concert was also sold and it’s safe to say that tons of bootleg shirts were sold to people who could not even get a ticket. Don’t all these people have jobs, don’t all these kids have schools to attend? Some very informed fans had spent the night in front of the store, and that’s some devotion for Axl!
Here are a few footages of the show posted on Instagram during the night, and yes Axl is still fat.
