Guns N’ Roses Planning 30th Anniversary Deluxe Reissue Of “Use Your Illusion”

It looks like Guns N’ Roses have a 30th anniversary deluxe reissue of “Use Your Illusion” in the works. Slash recently confirmed the news to Biff Bam Pop!.

Slash said the following:

“It got delayed by the pandemic but it is coming out, I think this summer. There’s a bunch of cool live stuff on it — a couple shows. The Ritz [in New York City] from the ’90s, like early ’90s, and a show that we did in Las Vegas back in 1989, I think it was. And it’s actually the show that I met my ex-wife at, so I was really hard-pressed to even do the fucking record.”

Blabbermouth also shared more info on the shows that the guitarist mentioned:

“Slash was apparently referencing the last of the three warm-up shows GUNS N’ ROSES booked at the Ritz in New York prior to embarking on its “Use Your Illusion” tour in 1991. The May 16, 1991 concert was notable for being the night singer Axl Rose broke a foot after taking a flying leap during the band’s performance of “You Could Be Mine”.

As for the Las Vegas show that is included in the set, Slash was apparently talking about the January 25, 1992 performance at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is where he and his now-ex-wife Perla Ferrar first met.”
