Guns N' Roses

Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses will come to Pinnacle Bank Arena in the fall.

Guns N’ Roses’ long-running reunion tour will come to Lincoln in the fall.

Longtime GNR members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan will perform hits such as “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “Mr. Brownstone” and “Welcome to the Jungle” on Oct. 15 at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Until the band’s “Not In This Lifetime” tour kicked off in 2016, the three members of the band’s classic lineup had not performed together since 1993.

Guns N’ Roses has performed more than 150 tour dates, fueled by the band’s greatest hits, since launching the reunion tour.

Considered one of the best rock albums of all time, “Appetite for Destruction” featured guitarist Izzy Stradlin, who has declined to participate in the reunion, and drummer Steven Adler, who has performed at select dates on the tour.

In the ’80s and early ’90s, Guns N’ Roses was the biggest rock band in the world. “Appetite for Destruction” sold more than 18 million copies, and its dual “Use Your Illusion” albums each sold more than 7 million.

Formed in 1985, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band has sold more than 44.5 million albums in the U.S., with hit songs such as “Sweet Child O Mine,” “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Nightrain” and “Paradise City.”

Guns N’ Roses last played the area in 2011, when Axl Rose led the band that featured none of the “Appetite”-era musicians. Slash will bring his solo band to Stir Cove this summer.
