Published May 29, 2014Considering the lengthy, 14-year incubation period behind Guns N' Roses' 2008 LP Chinese Democracy, we're not holding our breath for any new material from Axl Rose and the rest of his crew anytime soon. That said, there is a new release coming down the pipeline in the form of a concert film. The tellingly titled Appetite for Democracy 3D: Live from the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas should hit your home theatre setups July 1 on Blu-ray and DVD through UMe.
The concert was filmed back on November 21, 2012, at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Casino, as the band were touring to support both the 25th anniversary of landmark debut Appetite for Destruction and the somewhat less significant four-year anniversary of Chinese Democracy. As such, there are a number of setlist spots reserved for tracks from both LPs, from "Paradise City" to "Street of Dreams."
There are also other cuts from across their career ("Patience," "Civil War," "Don't Cry") and covers of the Who, Neil Young and Pink Floyd scattered through the set. The band's Tommy Stinson and Bumblefoot each take over the mic once during the show to deliver originals. You'll find the details down below.
The Blu-ray release features the film presented in both 3D and 2D, and includes a 3D photo gallery. The DVD version showcases the standard 2D film, while both releases were mixed in 5.1 surround sound.
There is also an interactive component to the release, with fans being able to connect with each other via "The GN'R Appetite for Democracy Official App," which has ties to social media and offers people the opportunity to pick up exclusive merchandise, among other features.
Appetite for Democracy 3D: Live from the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas is the first official concert film from Guns N' Roses since 1992's Use Your Illusion concert video, which was shot at Japan's Tokyo Dome.
