Guns ´n´ Roses: Live at the Ritz 1988; Full Concert

Recorded February the 2nd at the Ritz in New York City.

Guns ´N?´ Roses was founded 1985 in Hollywood. Their debut album "Appetite For Destruction" took over number 1 of the US charts in 1987 and immediately became a mega seller. On the highlight of their musical career they played a concert in the New Yorker Ritz with triumphal success.

Unfortunately it got bizarrely quiet around the band for many years in the 90s followed by a series of scandals and lineup changes. But this concert is the best proof that Guns ´N´ Roses is in fact one of the best rock ´n?´roll bands in the world. The bad boys from L.A. rock like the gods. You only need to hear the first sun-drenched accords of "Mr. Brownstone" and the following ecstasy in the stadium: Then it becomes completely normal to wear chequered skirts and colored scarfs around the head.

1.  It's so Easy
2.  Mr. Brownstone
3.  Out Ta Get Me
4.  Sweet Child O' Mine
5.  My Michelle
6.  Knockin' on Heaven's Door
7.  Welcome to the Jungle
8.  Nite Train
9.  Paradise City
10. Mama Kin
11. Rocket Queen
12. Whole Lotta Rosie
13. Shadow of Your Love
