GUNS N’ ROSES RETURN TO THE SUNSET STRIP WITH L.A. TAKEOVER
LOS ANGELES, CA – Fresh from their critically acclaimed, sold-out-in-minutes NY Takeover and subsequent intimate run of shows along the eastern seaboard, Guns N’ Roses will be taking over Los Angeles in March with a three-date club run, announced today. It’s been 22 years since they last visited the Hollywood Palladium, where they have set their first stop on the LA run on March 9. GN’R will make their first appearances two LA music landmarks, The Wiltern on March 11, and House of Blues Sunset Strip on March 12.
Presale for the LA Takeover will begin on Thursday, March 1st at 10am PT, public onsale is slated for Friday, March 2nd at 10am PT. For more information on tickets and VIP packages, please visit www.gunsnroses.com.
The continuation of this historic run of intimate shows has been lauded by critics at every stop:
“…the Roseland show could have happened at any point in the 25 years since Guns N’ Roses released its seminal first album” – New York Times
“…doing it on their own terms—with stadium lights and a supersized set list….Lasting through to the end of the set may have been an exhaustive stamina test, but it was worth every minute.” - Revolver
“Many bands take rare performances like this in unusually small venues as an opportunity to relax and take it easy, performing a far more casual set. That was absolutely not the case with GNR at House of Blues. The band left everything out on that stage in a performance that spanned just about every nook and cranny of the Guns N' Roses catalog from hits to covers to rarities.” - Chicago Now
“Each one is an epic, and in many ways the complex songs sound better with this expanded line-up of the band…” - Rolling Stone
“…wildly exceeded my expectations. Say what you will about Axl, when he's onstage he sings his ass off and gives it his all.” – VH1.com
“GNR pulled no punches, offering an all-out rock assault that included most of the hits fans would want to hear.” - Press of Atlantic City
