If you’re headed to Guns N’ Roses tonight or Saturday, it’s time to get amped!
Gunners have been to Europe, North and South America, Mexico, Asia, and Aussie on this tour - and now they’re headed to Wellington’s Sky Stadium tonight, and Auckland’s Eden Park on Saturday. She’s gonna be huuuuge!
The rock legend’s setlist has come a long way since their debut performance in 1985. Back then, they performed a 10-track setlist, which included ‘Anything Goes’ and ‘Think About You’ from their not-yet-released album Appetite for Destruction.
Check out their original setlist, provided by Setlist.FM below.

Think About You

Back Off Bitch
Heartbreak Hotel (Elvis Presley cover)
GnR’s setlists have obviously grown heaps over the years. Their latest show was in Melbourne on December 3rd, where they delivered a 27-song-set - and me oh my it’s getting us pumped for what’s in store for us.
Have a geeze at the Melbourne setlist below:
It’s so Easy
Slither (Velvet Revolver cover)
Welcome to the Jungle
Double Talkin’ Jive
Live and Let Die (Wings cover)
Shadow of Your Love
Rocket Queen (Extended jam & solo)
You Could be Mine
I Wanna Be Your Dog
Civil War (Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Machine Gun’ Outro)
Sorry (Followed by band introductions)
Slash Guitar Solo (Blues jam)
Sweet Child o’ Mine
Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door
Whole Lotta Roise (AC/DC cover)
Patience (The Beatles’ ‘Blackbird’ intro)
Looking at all of their recent Aussie gigs on Setlist.FM, the first three songs of the setlist seem to be locked in place (‘It’s So Easy,’ ‘Mr. Brownstone’ and ‘Chinese Democracy’), but the order of tracks in the middle differ slightly from show to show.
It also looks like we can count on the last three songs of the evening being ‘Patience,’ ‘Don’t Cry’ and ‘Paradise City’ respectively. Fuck yeah.
If you are headed to the shows, don’t forget The Rock is hosting pre-gigs from 2pm at Macs Brewbar tonight (December 8) and at Morningside Tavern on Saturday (December 10).
See you there maaates!
