The concert marked the first time that Guns N’ Roses performed at the iconic venue. The special event, taking place before the next leg of the band’s North American “Not In This Lifetime” tour, aired live nationwide on SiriusXM’s Guns N’ Roses Radio. The concert also aired live on [easyazon_link identifier=”B008Q00QFK” locale=”US” tag=”harlemworld-20″]Howard Stern[/easyazon_link]’s Howard 101 channel.
SiriusXM’s Guns N’ Roses Radio features music from the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees’ entire iconic career, including the 1987 “[easyazon_link identifier=”B000000OQF” locale=”US” tag=”harlemworld-20″]Appetite for Destruction[/easyazon_link]” album, which is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary. The SiriusXM channel also includes music by artists who have influenced Guns N’ Roses, live tracks and rarities.
Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler told the “Trunk Nation” show earlier this year that Fernando Lebeis, who is part of GN’R‘s management team, had “some good ideas” for the thirtieth-anniversary celebration of “Appetite For Destruction”.
Adler appeared with GUNS onstage last November in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as on three separate occasions during the U.S. leg of the “Not In This Lifetime” tour last summer.
It was rumored in September 2016, that former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin turned down a five-figure fee to play with the band at their April 2016 reunion shows.
Stradlin tweeted about the dispute, writing that the group didn’t want to “split the loot equally.”
