Guns N’ Roses celebrated Halloween in true rock star fashion by launching its first-ever residency Appetite for Democracy at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel with a truly unforgettable show. Throughout the residency, the band will play a total of 12 mind-blowing shows now through Saturday, Nov. 24.

Local Las Vegas band 333 opened for the legendary rock stars. Following their performance, Guns N’ Roses entered the stage to thousands of screaming fans. The stage was lit up with not only lights but pyrotechnic displays, smoke, LED screens and more made exclusively for the group’s performances at The Joint.

Guitarists DJ Ashba and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal displayed their Halloween spirit with zombie and skull facepaint while jamming out behind front man and founder Axl Rose. The group of eight had the crowd on its feet, screaming and singing along to its biggest hits spanning from their debut album Appetite for Destruction (1987) through their platinum-selling record Chinese Democracy (2008). Among the crowd favorites were “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Paradise City.”
