Many people thought it was an April Fool’s Day joke back on April 1st, 2016, when they heard Guns N’ Roses would be playing The Troubadour in LA that night. But it wasn’t. It was very real. And die-hard fans waited in line on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip that day and tried to score one of the 250 tickets available for the show happening that night. And although there were rumors about it being an April Fool’s Day joke, fans held out hope that it was real. And their persistence paid off!
The tickets were only $10 each. The show happened, and it rocked. The band had just announced their headlining spot at that year’s Coachella music festival in Southern California, but The Troubadour show was the only other concert mentioned at that point, since the reunion. It was legendary, to say the least. Check out footage from that sweaty, LA night below!
