Before GUNS N' ROSES begins its upcoming residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal will fly out to Dubai, United Arab Emirates for a special performance with local band POINT OF VIEW for the release of their debut album, "Revolutionize The Revolutionary".

Commented Thal: "My first time in Dubai was with GUNS N' ROSES in December 2010. It was a real eye-opener as to how much local bands there rocked — first hearing our support act JULIANA DOWN, and soon after getting acquainted with the band POINT OF VIEW. POINT OF VIEW were releasing their debut album, 'Revolutionize The Revolutionary', and sent me a copy. The first song kicked in with this RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE/PANTERA groove. Great recording, great playin', lyrics with a message, great album, and they did it all DIY, which I've always been supportive of. Proceeds from their album will be going to animal welfare, something I'm also very supportive of. So when their album release concert was confirmed for early October a few weeks before GUNS N' ROSES was hitting the road again and the idea of getting on stage with them came up, I was happy to do it."
