Guns N' Roses Play Surprise Gig in New York at Former Site of CBGB
Instead, according to reports, Axl and company took over the showroom of designer John Varvatos during a private party. Of course, Varvatos' showroom occupies the space that formerly housed legendary punk rock mecca CBGB.
The band's set ran 17 songs, and they kicked things off with 'You're Crazy.' GN'R dusted off classics like 'Mr. Brownstone,' 'I Used to Love Her,' 'It's So Easy,' 'Rocket Queen' and 'Welcome to the Jungle.' After 'My Michelle' and 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door,' Guns covered AC/DC's 'Whole Lotta Rosie,' then performed 'Paradise City.' The set ended with a three-song encore of 'Sweet Child O' Mine,' 'This I Love' and 'Nighttrain.'
Guns N' Roses, fresh from a Canadian tour in support of 'Chinese Democracy,' will be performing in South America this March.
