Press Release Detail: St Pete Forum Guns N’ Roses 2006 North American Tour 9/11/2006 Guns N’ Roses, one of the top five bands of the past twenty years, is embarking upon their “2006 North American Tour.” On October 25 at 7:30 pm, the legendary band will stop at the St. Pete Times Forum. Formed in L.A in 1985, this band started out by playing in Hollywood clubs, which eventually led them to be signed. It didn’t take long before Guns N’ Roses became one of the most famous rock bands of all time. Not only famous for their heavy metal, and hard rock, but for their unique, intriguing hairstyles as well. After bringing a new, unforgettable sound to the 80’s, they continue their musical talent and innovative techniques today. At a time when pop was dominated by dance music and pop-metal, Guns N’ Roses brought raw, ugly rock & roll crashing back into the charts. They were not nice boys; nice boys don’t play rock & roll. They were ugly, misogynist, and violent; they were also funny, vulnerable, and occasionally sensitive, as their breakthrough hit, “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” showed. Guns N’ Roses’ music was basic and gritty, with a solid hard, bluesy base; they were dark, sleazy, dirty, and honest — everything that good hard rock and heavy metal should be. There was something refreshing about a band that could provoke everything from devotion to hatred, especially since both sides were equally right. As the ’80s became the ’90s, there simply wasn’t a more interesting band around. Guns N’ Roses released their first EP in 1986, which led to a contract with Geffen; the following year, the band released their debut album, Appetite for Destruction and started to build a following with their numerous live shows. Soon, both the album and single, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” shot to number one, and Guns N’ Roses became one of the biggest bands in the world. Their debut single, “Welcome to the Jungle,” was re-released and shot into the Top Ten, and “Paradise City” followed in its footsteps. Guns N’ Roses began work on the long-awaited follow-up to Appetite for Destruction at the end of 1990, and as one album became two, Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II were released in September 1991, showcasing a more ambitious band. By the middle of 1994, there were rumors flying that the band was about to break up and the band remained in limbo for several years. The first new original GNR song in eight years, the industrial metal sludge of “Oh My God,” appeared on the soundtrack to the 1999 Arnold Schwarzenegger film “End of Days.” Soon after, Geffen issued the two-disc Live Era: ’87-’93. 2001 was greeted with Guns N’ Roses’ first live dates in nearly seven years. An appearance at MTV’s 2002 Video Music Awards helped garner interest in the new lineup. That summer, the band started on their first tour in almost eight years, fulfilling all of their commitments in Europe and Asia. While having played a few shows in New York City, and most recently a 2006 European tour, the Rock and Roll boys of fame are back in North America and ready to entertain. Their countless hits such as “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “Welcome To The Jungle”, “Knockin’ On Heavens Door”, and “Paradise City” are just a few great hits that have kept this band on top since 1985.
