GUNS N' ROSES To Attempt World Record In Philadelphia

GUNS N' ROSES will attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World Records in Philadelphia, PA, when they become only the second act to play back-to-back shows at the First Union Center (December 6) and trek 758 feet, nine-and-a-half inches across the parking lot to the neighboring First Union Spectrum (December 8). Tickets for the newly-added second date went on sale on Saturday, November 16 at 10 a.m.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND performed back-to-back performances at the First Union Spectrum on September 24, 1999, and then moved everything across the parking lot to the First Union Center on September 25, 1999.

Arena owners Comcast-Spectacor will once again contact the Guinness Book of World Records for consideration for a new record — "The Shortest Distance Ever Traveled Between Arena Rock Shows." The record was submitted in 1999. However, Guinness couldn't create a category for the record.
