Guns N’ Roses Confirm Appetite for Destruction 30th Anniversary Celebration In Awesome Way


Guns N’ Roses are officially confirming they will celebrate Appetite for Destruction’s 30th anniversary with an awesome advertisement in Times Square in New York City.

Before setting out on the next leg of their Not In This Lifetime Tour in August, Guns N’ Roses announced last month that they will headline New York City’s fabled Apollo Theater. Taking place on Thursday, July 20th, the intimate, invitation-only event will air exclusively on SiriusXM’s Howard 101 channel and on the new, limited-run GNR channel.

SiriusXM launched Guns N’ Roses Radio on Thursday, July 13; it will run until Saturday, July 22 via satellite channel 41. The station will feature favored tracks from the group’s legendary career as well as live performances, rarities, and songs by artists that inspired the rockers.

    That’s super-cool but what does it MEAN?? Are they playing “Appetite” all the way through? Will Izzy and Steven be there? Wish I could be at the Apollo on Thursday!

  • Nicholas Scott Yordon

    It would be cool if for just this celebration/anniversary if the original 5 played some of the AFD songs

    That’s all the semi-reunion has really been about, right? It’s the biggest cash grab of all time.

    And fans aren’t stupid, it’s not a full reunion without Izzy, and it never will be.
