Things to do

All roses now the big guns have returned

Even though they need no introduction (drum roll), Guns N’Roses are coming to Copenhagen!

As part of their ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour, the band are performing all over Europe.

With 100 million record sales worldwide, and headline-grabbing musicians such as Slash (an absentee from the line-up from 1996 to 2016) and Axl Rose (recently fronting AC/DC of course), the band have rarely been out of our thoughts since the 1980s, although there always seems to be something new to learn.

For example, did you know that the band have changed their original line-up 22 times since their formation in LA in 1985?

And that Axl Rose was so broke before Guns N’ Roses, he joined a UCLA study that paid him $8 an hour to smoke cigarettes?

Most peculiarly, perhaps, bassist Duff McKagan rejoined the band along with Slash after a 19-year break brought on by a brush with death due to an episode of pancreatitis. His alcohol-induced condition led to his pancreas swelling to the size of a football.

If you missed your chance at a ticket and can’t afford the 5,000 kroner ultimate VIP package, the band are also playing in Stockholm on June 29 and in Hannover on June 22.
