Tulsa, Okla. probably isn’t the first city that comes to mind when fans think about the lyrics to Guns N’ Roses’ classic hard rock anthem, “Paradise City.” It turned out that the Oklahoma city transformed into quite the rock and roll paradise on Tuesday night, as GNR were in town on their Not In This Lifetime Tour to play at the BOK Center. To make the night even more fun, they brought out another rock and roll hero in Dave Grohl, who joined the band for their performance of “Paradise City” to close out the night's 32-song set.
As seen in the video above, a smiling Grohl emerges from backstage with guitar in hand to help Guns close out the show and rock out with his classic rock buddies. It must have been nice for the usual frontman to take a backseat and just jam along with the ride with Slash, Duff and Axl. The guest appearance came at the end of a show that already included a handful of hits throughout the setlist, with covers of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” and a tribute to their other hard rock buddy Chris Cornell with version of of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.”
Fans will remember that Grohl let Axl Rose use his rock and roll throne to perform after the GnR frontman broke his leg at the start of their comeback tour in 2016. The Foo Fighters founder also appeared on Slash’s 2010 solo album, where he played drums on a track that also featured the then-former Guns member Duff McKagan on bass.
Guns N’ Roses will continue their enormously successful semi-reunion tour throughout the rest of the year, with upcoming shows at Las Vegas's T-Mobile Arena on Nov. 17 and a hometown concert at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Nov. 24.
The Foo Fighters will also be playing the same BOK Center in Tulsa on Wednesday night, and will remain busy on the road until well into 2018. Tickets for select shows on their 2017-18 Concrete and Gold world tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
