It’s been over 25 years since Guns n Roses has played St. Louis. In that time, the band has broken up, took nearly two decades to release an album that went platinum, was enshrined in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, and reunited…sort of.
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).
Four of the key members are back. While Axl Rose toured as Guns n Roses and released the Chinese Democracy, it wasn’t really G n’ R without Slash, Dizzy and Duff.
Having put their differences to rest, the trio has instilled a group of of musicians and been touring as the revamped GnR for the past year.
