    Legendary rock n’ roll band Guns N’ Roses will make its big debut in Dubai on 3 March 2017 at the Autism Rocks Arena, in partnership with Hard Rock Café Dubai.

    The reunion tour will see Slash and Axl perform once again on the same stage after nearly 23 years, the last time being on 17 July 1993 in Buenos Aires.

    Band members include Axl Rose, Duff McKagan on bass, lead guitarist Slash, Dizzy Reed on the keyboard, rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, and Melissa Reese also on the keyboard.

    “I wanna go, I wanna go, oh won't you please take me home? For one night only our Autism Rocks Arena doubles up as Paradise City,” says Thomas Ovesen, CEO at 117Live. “It is not often that we can present such a legendary act and what will be a fantastic 30,000 capacity show. I am thrilled to welcome Guns N’ Roses to Dubai for the very first time. Despite the expanded venue capacity, this is not a ticket to hold out for – get yours before it is too late.”

    Nada Hayati, general manager of Hard Rock Cafe Dubai added to that: “Hard Rock Cafe Dubai is excited to partner with 117Live to bring such a monumental music experience to Dubai fans. The Guns N’ Roses concert is sure to be an unforgettable night of live music.”

    Guns N’ Roses formed in 1985. Their 1987 album ‘Appetite for Destruction’ went on to become the best-selling US debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum ‘Use Your Illusion I’ and ‘Use Your Illusion II’ occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are still one of the most important and influential acts in music history.
