The Gov says
On 21 July 1987, Geffen Records released G’n’R’s masterpiece Appetite for Destruction on an unsuspecting public. The rest, as they say, Is history.

On 2 February 1998, MTV broadcast the band live from the Legendayr Ritz nightclub in New York during the Appetite world tour. That gig and the line-up at the time – Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven Adler – have now passed into rock and roll legend.

Almost 30 years to the day since the release of Appetite and following on directly from the Gunners’ Not In This Lifetime Australian tour, all the planets are in alignment for The Red Skull with secial guest Matt Hemmerling to deliver GUNS N’ ROSES: LIVE AT THE RITZ at Adelaide’s premier live music establishment. For guitarist Jason Higgs, it’s a lifelong dream and a labour of love. Higgsy has this to say:

“Don’t expect to see any wigs, spandex or silly hats at this show. What you will get is a tough, rowdy, authentic recreation of the classic G’n’R line-up and sound.”

In other words, 90 minutes of classic Appetite era G’n’R 0 Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City, Sweet Child O’ Mine, the infamous Rocket Queen and many more.

So wake up late honey, put on your clothes and get your arses to The Gov to celebrate Appetite for Destruction’s “dirty 30”! #appetite30
