Rock supergroup, Guns N’ Roses wrapped up a second and two-night stop in Toronto Oct. 30 on their Not In This Lifetime reunion tour at the Air Canada Centre. Their first was at the Rogers Centre July 2016 and according to reviews, were on top form this week with great energy, tributes and of course…hit after hit.
These include Welcome to the Jungle, You Could Be Mine, Don’t Cry, November Rain, Patience, Paradise City and the song that started it all, Sweet Child O’ Mine. The band also paid tribute to late rocker, Chris Cornell who passed away tragically this year, with their rendition of Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun.
The show also featured a large screen with videos and images playing along with fireworks and confetti pouring over the crowd throughout the evening. On stage were Axl Rose, singer and pianist; Slash, lead guitarist; Duff McKagan, bassist; Dizzy Reed, keyboardist and touring band mates Melissa Reese on synthesizer, and Frank Ferrer on drums.
Guns N’ Roses also performed Live and Let Die by Paul McCartney and Wings, Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, and their 1992 hit cover of Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan.
