GUNS N' ROSES Plays Surprise Show In New York City

GUNS N' ROSES played a suprpise show last night (Thursday, February 11) at a private party for fashion designer John Varvatos at his New York City store (located at the old CBGB space) as part of Fashion Week.

The band's setlist was as follows:

01. You're Crazy
02. Mr. Brownstone
03. I Used To Love Her
04. Welcome To The Jungle
05. Street Of Dreams
06. Sorry
07. It's So Easy
08. Band Intros --> Patience
09. Rocket Queen
10. Jam --> Catcher In The Rye
11. My Michelle
12. Knockin' On Heaven's Door
13. Whole Lotta Rosie (AC/DC cover)
14. Paradise City


15. Sweet Child O' Mine
16. This I Love
17. Nighttrain

GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose took to both Twitter and a fan message board to hint at some possible "surprise gigs," but offered no further details.

GUNS N' ROSES has already announced a new set of South American dates, beginning on March 7 in Brazil and ending on April 1 in Ecuador.

The band completed a four-date tour of Asia in December and a Canadian tour earlier this month.

GUNS N' ROSES' last world tour, in 2006 and 2007, took in 60 shows in 26 countries and was the band's first full tour since 1993.

In addition to sole original member Rose, the current lineup of the band includes guitarists DJ Ashba, Ron Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.

GUNS N' ROSES' latest album, "Chinese Democracy", was released in November 2008 as a Best Buy exclusive, 17 years after the last all-original GUNS sets, "Use Your Illusion I" and "II". The album was a commercial disappointment, selling less than one million copies in the U.S. (according to Nielsen SoundScan) despite the long wait.
