Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA) joined GUNS N’ ROSES on stage last night (Tuesday, November 14) at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma to perform the song “Paradise City”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
After one of the first shows on GUNS N’ ROSES‘ “Not In This Lifetime” tour in April 2016, singer Axl Rose tweeted his gratitude, crammed full of emoji and exclamation points, at Grohl, who lent the then-injured GN’R singer the throne he had used on a FOO FIGHTERS tour one year earlier.
“Not In This Lifetime” is the most popular and highest-grossing global tour of 2017, according to Pollstar.
About seventy people travel with the show in addition to the truck drivers; that number goes upwards of five hundred, including the local workers, by show date once catering, security, etc. are factored in, according to the tour’s production manager, Dale “Opie” Skjerseth.
GUNS kicked off its long-rumored and long-awaited reunion tour in April 2016 with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California’s Coachella festival.
The “Not In This Lifetime” tour features classic lineup members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass) and Axl Rose (vocals) backed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Fank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and new second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
