Guns N' Roses started their Indian tour with the Bangalore Concert
Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1985. The classic lineup as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist IzzyStradlin, bassistDuffMcKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. The band has released six studio albums to date, accumulating sales of more than 100 million records worldwide, including shipments of 45 million in the United States, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time.
However, it was one this very day in music, the band made its trip to Bangalore, India. At the concert, Band vocalist Axl Rose, the long-haired heart throb of the ninetieskept his fans content with a few old classics and some still energetic vocals. And no, he did not do something crazy climbing on to the grand piano or falling off it, like he's done at some of his concerts in the past.
Rose's voice sounded tenuous and strained on stage. But, he managed to put the guns back in Guns N' Roses when he returned to the classics. Obviously, the party didn't get started till the audience heard the familiar strains of the opening guitar solo of 'Sweet Child O' Mine', which later then moved into the haunting and evergreen 'November Rain'. The purple patch of the concert extended into other classics -- mostly from their most popular album 'Appetite for destruction' and softer ballads from 'Use Your Illusion-I'.
Their most well-known cover, 'Knockin on Heavens' Door' was an expected track, but Rose surprised his audience with a taste of Pink Floyd with the anthemic 'Another brick in the Wall' that had the audience singing along.
All in all, the Guns N' Roses concert in Bangalore proved to be one hell of a success.
