GUNS N' ROSES paid tribute to late THE ANGELS singer/bassist Doc Neeson with a special performance of THE ANGELS classic "Marseilles" Wednesday night (June 4) during the seventh show of GN'R's second Las Vegas residency, "No Trickery! An Evening Of Destruction", at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
"This one's for Doc. From THE ANGELS to the angels," GUNS lead singer Axl said towards the end of the song.
Video footage of the performance, which was recorded from a closed circuit broadcast of the concert, can be seen below.
Neeson passed away on Wednesday just 17 months after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. He was 67 years old.
THE ANGELS were cited by GUNS N' ROSES and a number of Seattle grunge bands, including PEARL JAM and NIRVANA, as having influenced their music.
There are two shows remaining in GN'R's Vegas residency: June 6 and 7.
GUNS N' ROSES will release "Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live From The Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas" on July 1 via Universal Music Enterprises. The show was filmed on November 21, 2012 during the "Appetite For Democracy" tour in celebration of twenty-five years of "Appetite For Destruction" and four years of "Chinese Democracy".
