Guns N’ Roses will be taking over Soldier Field this weekend for 2 days of hard rock and good times. To get the crowd as pumped as possible for the show, Guns N’ Roses has chosen heavy rocking compatriot, Alice in Chains as their opener. As part of their Not In This Lifetime Tour, Slash, Axl Rose, and Duff McKagan will all be returning to the stage together, the first time its happened since 1993 (minus the shows they’ve already done this summer).

Mike Snider of USA Today, who was at their DC concert just a couple of days ago, had this to say of their performance:

Rose’s voice sounded in shape. He speedily spit out lyrics and maintained a long screeching howl for You Could Be Mine. And during Civil War, Rose transitioned his nasally scream into a guttural growl. His vocals sounded somewhat buried in the live sound mix, but that rarely mattered as the 40,000 or so in attendance screeched along, too. 

The black-hatted and bushy haired guitarist nearly stole the show as he stalked the simple but expansive stage, occasionally copping a tiptoed pose for some intense fretwork. The wiry McKagan and rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus joined him to surround drummer Frank Ferrer on the drum stand for a frantic finish to Rocket Queen.  Later, Slash played a soulful solo take on The Godfather theme and tag-teamed with Fortus on a instrumental rendition of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here.
