Guns N' Roses slays Tel Aviv
Over sixty thousand fans pack into Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park to witness the first reunion of the Guns N' Roses original lineup featuring Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan.
Guns N' Roses played a sold-out show Saturday night in Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park, which was attended by over 60,000 fans. The concert was met with widespread acclaim and for good reason.

 

  

After the band's 2014 tour, guitarists DJ Ashba and Ron Thal, bassist Tommy Stinson and keyboardist Chris Pitman left Guns N' Roses. The vacancies paved the way for the classic lineup to return featuring lead vocalist Axl Rose, along with guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan.

The reunion of Rose, Slash and McKagan marked the first time the trio have played together in 23 years, since the infamous Use Your Illusion Tour in 1993. The reunion is especially noteworthy due to the fact that Slash and Rose had a public falling out with one another after Slash left the band in 1996.

With many fans worried the band couldn't match their previous gusto, there was some obvious skepticism. However, that feeling soon subsided.

 

The impact of the moment was not lost on fans as the band was warmly welcomed and gave the crowd an extended show of such quality that it harkened back to the band's glory days.
