Guns ‘N Roses played surprise acoustic gig for Rosario Dawson | Izzy Stradlin & Kid Rock on stage @ Hammerstein

Guns N Roses

Right around the time Art Brut was singing about hanging around with Axl Rose Wednesday night (May 17, 2006), Axl himself was finishing up the last of four Guns ‘N Roses shows at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Sebastian Bach was the only special guest the first and second nights. The fourth night got Kid Rock and original GNR member Izzy Stradlin. Blabbermouth reports that Izzy played on ‘Think about You’, ‘Patience’ and ‘Nightrain’, and that Kid Rock “joined GN’R and Stradlin for ‘Nightrain'”. Ski Brooklyn links to a video.

Thursday night (May 18, 2006) GNR played a surprise acoustic gig at a small NYC club. It was Rosario Dawson‘s birthday party. Blabbermouth reports, “The band finally came a little after 1 a.m. I think. The stage was incredibly small and everyone surged forward to the point where tables were knocked over….Axl, Robin [Finck], Richard [Fortus], Tommy [Stinson], Bumblefoot, Dizzy and Chris [Pittman] all took the stage. Everyone played acoustically except Robin who played a semi-hollow Gibson, and Tommy, who played his usual bass; for ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’, Robin and Richard switched instruments. Chris and Dizzy played maracas, congos, tambourines, and occasionally the keyboard, which was crammed in the corner. Axl introduced the show as the ‘karaoke version’ of GN’R as a movie screen-sized monitor with all his lyrics was behind him.” More details @ Blabbermouth. The pictures in this post are from that show.
