With a true GN’R sound and stage show, The Guns N’ Roses Experience meticulously recreates every visual detail and every musical note to capture that reckless spirit of the original Guns ‘N Roses legendary live performances.

In a bone crushing two hour set all the essentials are covered with breathtaking accuracy including Welcome To The Jungle, November Rain, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Paradise City, Mr. Brownstone, You Could Be Mine, Nightrain, Rocket Queen, Knocking on Heaven’s Door and so much more…

Don’t miss the chance to see WORLD’S only authentic live 80/90's Guns ‘N’ Roses experience.

Other Bands have tried but fail to deliver a true GnR experience.
