Guns N' Roses

12/21/2011, The Forum, Inglewood Calif.

Guns N' Roses return to Los Angeles! Not since 2006 has the band fronted by Axl Rose (who is now the sole original member) graced a stage in or near the city of angels. This time the Gunners invaded the Fabulous Forum. Along with founder Axl Rose, the current lineup of GUNS N' ROSES includes guitarists Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.

The band opened the Forum show with the chunky Heavy Metal riffs of “Chinese Democracy”, the title track from the 2008 CD Axl and company spent well over a decade and millions of dollars creating, and is still the only new music to come out from this current lineup. This band can still pack arenas such as the Forum. But the lingering question is whether the original “Appetite” lineup will ever reunite for a tour and for that matter what and who will show up for the band’s Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction come April 2012.

iClips broadcasted the show live from the Forum in Los Angeles, California on December 21, 2011. The following week iClips will broadcast GUNS N' ROSES from The Joint in Las Vegas, Nevada on the night before New Year's Eve.


Presale for the event started at $7.99. On the day of the show prices will increase to $9.99. There will also be a two-show package available for $14.99.

The shows will be available to stream for a 24-hour period following each show.

GUNS N' ROSES kicked off its first U.S. tour since 2006 on October 28 in Orlando, Florida.


"Chinese Democracy", the 2008 album released by the current edition of GUNS N' ROSES after a 15-year wait, was officially certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on February 3, 2009 for shipments in the United States in excess of one million copies. The long-in-the-making, 14-song CD finally arrived 17 years after the last full-length collections of original GUNS material, "Use Your Illusion I" and "II", were released, and nine years after the non-album track "Oh My God" surfaced on the soundtrack of the movie "End Of Days".

"Chinese Democracy" was made available exclusively through Best Buy.
