G N' R @ The Ritz
Guns N' Roses

Guns N' Roses (Axl Rose, Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Chris Pitman, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer, and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal) completed a short intimate tour that mostly happened in NYC in February. It hit Roseland Ballrooom, Terminal 5, Webster Hall (which they renamed 'The Ritz'), Hiro Ballroom, House of Blues in Atlantic City, and Chicago's House of Blues along the way.

They played over 30 songs at Webster Hall, starting around midnight and ending after 3am, working in almost anything you would want to hear including a handful of covers like the James Bond theme, Pink Panther theme, "Riff Raff" by AC/DC, and their usual takes on "Live and Let Die" and Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door." The full setlist is below, along with more pictures and a video from the 2/15 Webster Hall show that the Toilet Boys opened.

The band's next show is Monday (3/5) in Miami which is followed by some California shows which all happen before SXSW which is where GN'R member Tommy Stinson (formerly of the Replacements) will play at least six solo shows. Tommy then heads out on a short East Coast tour with Kurt Baker in April which hits Union Hall in Brooklyn on April 12. Guns N' Roses head to Europe for a tour later this year.

All tour dates (GNR, Tommy Stinson AND Slash too), more pictures and the other stuff, below...

Tommy Stinson is a chill down-to-earth guy. I wish he'd be a little smarter and quit this joke of a band.

They look like The Village People

I don't like my Rockstars doing "outfit changes" during the show. What is this some lady gaga shit?

"I don't like my Rockstars doing "outfit changes" during the show. What is this some lady gaga shit?"

I've played in bands where I played two full sets. You get pretty sweaty underneath the stage lights. If I played three hours, I probably would want a clean shirt halfway!

I went to three of the shows on this tour (NYC - Ritz, AC, and Philly). Don't regret a second (or dollar) of it. Axl sounds great and the band is technically sound. Yeah, it isn't the same as it was, but what is.

Also - @1149 - I laughed.

Tommy was working as a telemarketer at one point. If he wants to collect a guaranteed salary, it's hard to begrudge him that.

That chick from the Toilet Boys is hot! lolz

Glad to see the Toilet boys are back! I would always love seeing them and some dude hitting on Guy, thinking she was a female.

aren't we over this nonsense by now?

Posted by Anonymous | March 5, 2012 10:55 AM

7:52, of course if you went to three of these ridiculous shows and traveled for them, you're gonna say you liked it, because obviously you have to be that into it that you would subject yourself to nine plus hours of this plus travel time between three different states

the only thing sillier than fake GNR playing fake Ritz two and half weeks ago, is Brooklyn Vegan posting about it two and a half weeks after it happened.

who is that dude in the toilet boys with the fish net stockings?

10:55: Considering I'm still seeing hummus, sausage and Jeremy Lin "jokes", I'd say we aren't over this nonsense.
