Guns N’ Roses have released the second edition of their Not In This Lifetime Selects concert stream series.
The Gunners are one of a stack of bands who’ve been helping their fans get through lockdown by dropping exclusive footage from love shows they’ve performed.
The series brings fans some truly epic vision from the band’s Not In This Lifetime comeback tour which saw the likes of Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan reunite live on stage for the first time in over 20 years.
This latest installation sees Guns ‘N Roses performing at England’s iconic Download Festival, in a 30-minute clip that begins with ‘Slither’ by Velvet Revolver.
Other tunes that they play throughout the set include ‘You Could Be Mine’ from the 1991 film Terminator: Judgement Day, as well as the Duff McKagan-led vocals for ‘Attitude’ by Misfits.
They close the set in epic style, with 1988 chart-topper Sweet Child O’ Mine’, with the over 80,000 fans in attendance belting out the chorus. So so good!
The first episode featured a 2019 show that took place in 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The tour, which began in 2016, has become one of the highest-grossing in history.
The live streaming series isn’t all the band have been working on in lockdown, with news dropping in April that the Gunners have been “working fastidiously on killer new stuff”.
Their last record was 2008’s Chinese Democracy, and with lots of other acts using the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to get back in the studio, it wouldn’t be too far a stretch.
Slash has also told SiriusXM that “at the end of the day, everybody wants to have a full album released.”
“I don’t think that’s really changed all that much. But there’s a different way of putting stuff out initially nowadays more so than… I mean, there’s always been the single, but now you sort of look at that preliminary release a little bit differently now.”
