GUNS N' ROSES Singer AXL ROSE Meets WASHINGTON REDSKINS Owner Prior To FedexField Concert

GUNS N' ROSES played the second show of its "Not In This Lifetime" North American stadium tour on Sunday night (June 26) at FedexField — home of the Washington Redskins — in Landover, Maryland near Washington, D.C.

Prior to the concert, GN'R singer Axl Rose met Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his wife Tanya along with head coach Jay Gruden and general manager Scot McCloughan.

As was the case at the tour kickoff show three days in Detroit, GN'R members Rose, Slash (guitar) and Duff McKagan (bass) plus four side musicians played for more than two hours and delivered a hit-laden set that included "Welcome To The Jungle", "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Paradise City" from the band's classic debut album, "Appetite For Destruction". The group also played a couple of tracks from GN'R's 2008 album "Chinese Democracy", including that album's single "Better" and the fragile ballad "This I Love".

Rose was no longer confined to the chair he had been using onstage ever since breaking his foot during a surprise GUNS club show in April 1 in Los Angeles that marked the official launch of the band's semi-reunion.

The FedexField show was the band's second since an initial spate of seven gigs in April, which included two concerts apiece in Las Vegas, at California's Coachella festival and in Mexico City in addition to the Los Angeles club show.

Rose just finished a stint as lead vocalist for AC/DC on that band's European festival run, and is slated to play at least ten North American shows with that group right after GUNS complete their stadium trek in late August.

GUNS N' ROSES next plays on Wednesday night (June 29) in Kansas City, Missouri.
