Video: GUNS N' ROSES Kicks Off Second Las Vegas Residency 'No Trickery! An Evening Of Destruction'May 25, 2014
GUNS N' ROSES kicked off its second Las Vegas residency, "No Trickery! An Evening Of Destruction", on Wednesday, May 21 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
There are seven shows remaining in the residency: May 25, 28, 30 and 31 and June 4, 6 and 7.
GUNS N' ROSES' first Vegas residency, Appetite For Democracy, took place in the fall of 2012 and saw the band performing an electrifying show featuring a setlist created exclusively for The Joint.
"If some is good, more is better!" Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas, told USA Today. "That's our take on welcoming back GUNS N' ROSES to The Joint.
"Our first residency with GN'R was fantastic in every way imaginable. The band and the fans loved the venue, and the business was great for everyone else involved. We want all of the GUNS N' ROSES fans across the globe to come see what one of the iconic rock 'n' roll bands can do when they have the best venue in the world to do it in, in a city made to party. We are gearing up for another epic residency."
Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, added: "We are really looking forward to having one of the true American rock 'n' roll bands back and performing at The Joint. Every time we have GUNS N' ROSES play in The Joint, it just keeps getting better.
"What more can I say than it's a great honor to have one of the most iconic rock 'n' roll bands in the world coming back to rock The Joint for nine more shows! We are all excited about this next run."

As previously reported, GUNS N' ROSES frontman and sole original member Axl Rose has denied rumors that he is breaking up the band and considering retirement. Responding to a report at RadarOnline.com in which anonymous sources claimed that the group was finished, Rose posted a message at the band's Facebook page which read, "I'm not going anywhere . . . GNR fans sure have a Radar for BS! Love you all!"
Meanwhile, another source claiming to be close to the Rose camp dismissed the report as "bullshit," adding that the members of the band had merely been notified that their calendars would be clear for the immediate future so that they could do other things.
The RadarOnline.com report had suggested that the band would call it a day after finishing up its current Las Vegas residency at the Hard Rock Hotel, which ends on June 7.
The source for RadarOnline.com said, "Band members have been told their calendars are free following Vegas. Axl is considering retiring and it’s done. Band members and support staff were surprised when told the news and are actively looking for work."
Some of the current members of the GUNS lineup have spoken in the past year about recording a new album, but that is highly unlikely. The sole all-new GUNS N' ROSES album in 23 years, "Chinese Democracy", arrived in November 2008 to mixed reviews and disappointing sales.
