During Guns N’ Roses’ November 1 show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV, Axl Rose ended up falling onstage. You can see footage of that below at about the 7:10 mark. The band will be performing at that same venue tonight (November 2).
During Guns N’ Roses’ October 23 show at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, OK, the band performed “Dead Horse” live for the first time since 1993. That track appears on the band’s 1991 album “Use Your Illusion I.”
Guns N’ Roses’ official video for “Sweet Child O’ Mine“ has officially hit one billion views on YouTube. Notably, the clip is the first music video from the 1980s to reach that milestone. This news comes after the group’s official video for “November Rain” previously became the only video from the 1990s to hit one billion views.
Rick Dunsford is a Guns N’ Roses super-fan who saw the band live 32 times, got the members’ autographs tattooed on him, and even named his son Axl. However, it appears he is now banned from the group’s shows for life.
According to Tone Deaf – The Brag, Dunsford reportedly purchased a 19-disc collection of unreleased “Chinese Democracy” demos and some of the tracks ended up leaking online. Dunsford was blamed for the leak and has since been banned from the band’s shows. Members of the GN’R trading community do not believe that Dunsford leaked the material, but he was punished nonetheless.
Dunsford found out about the ban while waiting in line for Guns N’ Roses’ Wichita, KS show. He said the following about that:
“So today I flew out to Wichita, KS to see my favorite band Guns N’ Roses! Today would be my 33rd time seeing them! Well I was just pulled from the line and told if I ever come to a Guns N’ Roses show again that I’ll be arrested! I was gonna escorted off the property and told I’m done.”
A video of the confrontation was also shared:

During Guns N’ Roses’ October 7 show in Wichita, Kansas, the band performed “Locomotive” live for the first time since 1992. That track appears on the band’s 1991 album “Use Your Illusion II.”
