A number of celebrities turned up to witness GUNS N’ ROSES‘ surprise reunion performance Friday night (April 1).
Kate Hudson, Bradley Cooper, Emily Ratajkowksi, Lenny Kravitz, Michelle Rodriguez, Chris Brown, Jim Carrey and Nicolas Cage are among the A-list stars who joined a crowd of more than 250 that snagged tickets to see the reunited band perform at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.
Cooper reportedly brought his mom, Gloria Campano, to watch the show and was seen alongside Ratajkowski, Kravitz, Brown, Carrey, Cage and Rodriguez in the VIP balcony overlooking the stage.
The gig was advertised as “Not In This Lifetime” by the venue, quoting what singer Axl Rose said in 2012 about a possible classic GUNS N’ ROSES lineup reunion. The same phrase has since been announced as the name of the band’s upcoming summer tour.
Only Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan from GN’R’s “Appetite For Destruction”-era lineup took part in the Troubadour gig. They were joined by keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer. Also appearing with them was second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
A one-and-a-half-minute video report from TMZ featuring clips of some of the aforementioned celebrities as they entered the venue prior to the GN’R gig can be seen below. More than a dozen photos from both inside and outside the venue are available at DailyMail.co.uk.
GUNS N’ ROSES‘ reunion tour will officially kick off on Friday, April 8 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The band is also scheduled to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival later this month.
