Watch: Guns N’ Roses Play First Reunion Show In 23 Years

band reunites for "Not In This Lifetime" tour

For some, 1993 was a lifetime ago, but for dedicated fans of the pivotal metal group Guns ‘N Roses, it’s been an unbearably long hiatus.

Friday night (April 1st) at L.A.’s Troubador Theatre, Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan reunited on stage again for the first time in 23 years. The show was the kick-off to Guns N’ Roses “Not in This Lifetime” tour, a string of shows recently announced, in addition to a major headlining set at Coachella this summer.

According to SPIN, they ran through several of their popular hits such as “Paradise City,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “You Could Be Mine.” While cameras were not permitted inside, some managed to capture fan-shot footage and post on social media. Take a look below:
