GUNS N' ROSES Returning To Las Vegas For Second Residency?

GUNS N' ROSES Returning To Las Vegas For Second Residency?

It appears that GUNS N' ROSES will return to Las Vegas this spring for its second residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

The news was revealed via an image posted on the venue's Facebook page, featuring the band's logo along with the following words: "coming spring 2014" and "Text GNR to 97580 to be the first to hear the big news."

There has been no official announcement regarding GUNS N' ROSES' return to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

GUNS N' ROSES' first Vegas residency, Appetite For Democracy, took place in the fall of 2012 and saw the band performing an electrifying show featuring a setlist created exclusively for The Joint. Appetite For Democracy spanned the band's biggest hits from their debut album "Appetite For Destruction" (1987) through their platinum-selling record "Chinese Democracy" (2008). The concerts featured the current lineup of the band, of which singer Axl Rose is the only original member.

GUNS N' ROSES drew criticism in November 2012 from Clark County commissioners after they were told about an ad for the group's Vegas concerts which depicts what appears to be a sexually assaulted woman beneath the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.

The image, which was said to be a watered-down version of the banned cover for the band's classic 1987 debut, "Appetite For Destruction", was being used in mainstream advertising, including newspaper promotions and taxicab placards.
