LAS VEGAS - Legendary rock band Guns N' Roses is back in town for its second residency in the Joint at the Hard Rock. Band members say this show is bigger and better than last year.
"There's a lot of cool surprises. We have a killer stage show," guitarist DJ Ashba said.
The band, notorious for concerts that stretch until the middle of the night, has some advice for those attending.
"Tell the babysitter not to wait up," said keyboardist Dizzy Reed. “And, take work off the next day.”
"It’s going to be a party," Ashba added.
Contrary to their reputation as reckless rockers, band members spend time between shows getting involved in our local community. The band visited kids at the Southern Highlands Clubhouse at the Boys and Girls Club to discuss their personal experiences with bullying and efforts to eliminate it in schools.
"Anytime, anywhere, any chance we can go meet people and do something good for any cause, if we can be there, we will,” Reed said.
The band also recently visited Nellis Air Force Base to thank local men and women for their service.
"We have a chance to do that. We have a chance to go say, ‘Thank you,’ and show our appreciation, and we'll do it on behalf of all GNR fans," Reed said.
Beyond the shows and community work, the band finds time for other activities.
"I go to Smith's," Ashba said.
“I brought my golf clubs and sunscreen," added Reed.
By night, they tear through their long roster of rock classics for the 4,000 faithful fans inside the Joint.
As far as the future of this iconic rock band, they say they want to keep going as long as possible. "Walkers and wheelchairs,” Reed said.
You can catch the band through June 7. Tickets start at $50.
