Though the line-up isn’t what it once was, G n’ R continue to bring the rain, touring Rio with Axl Rose, Ron Thal, DJ Ashba, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer and other musicians.
The band, whose Use Your Illusion albums were seminal 90s rock, headlined the closing night of Rock in Rio 2011, getting onstage in the early a.m. local time during a downpour and covered up in a raincoat against the elements. The band is about to set off on its first tour of the U.S. in five years, kicking things off in Florida at the end of October.
Rio has been good to us. There’s another album to come (Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone, Evanescence, Jamiroquai), but for now, here are the best pics from the Gunners concert.
