Not in This Lifetime Tour
Get ready for some power ballads and hard riffs at the Vivint Smart Home Arena, on Tuesday, October 29, at 7:30 PM. There isn’t any doubt that a Guns N’ Roses concert means having the time of your life. In this generation, there just aren’t many lead vocalists as unique, enduring, and captivating as Axl Rose. And, you can’t forget the ultra-talented guitarists Slash and Duff. I mean, how can you not rock out to power hits such as “Welcome to the Jungle,” and “Paradise City?”
In any event, you will travel through the years as Guns N’ Roses presents an array of your favorite songs. Before you go, make sure you have all your gear ready from cameras, to chargers, and more.
Expect the Best
A Guns N’ Roses concert isn’t for the faint of heart. I mean, you can expect lots of confetti, visual effects, and pyrotechnics. It is Guns N’ Roses after all — this isn’t a concert for your grandparents. It’s amazing that after all these years, Guns N’ Roses can still effectively bring the house down.
It isn’t just their music, either. The band still has a passion for their sound and fans. Throughout the decades, they have continued to convey their genius through numerous hit albums. Even some of their more underrated new songs will move your soul. Let’s face it, they won’t be around forever. So, the best time to see them live is right now.
Just a Few Solo Shows
What makes this particular concert series unique is this isn’t a major music festival appearance. It is just the legendary Guns N’ Roses, and all their dedicated fans. In fact, it is one of the most-discussed reunion tours in years. Remember when Axl left the band? Well, he is certainly back and better than ever. Finally, you can rock out to “Sweet Child O’ Mine” live and in full effect. The best tickets are guaranteed to sell out, so you can’t afford to wait a minute longer.
Boost Your Spirits
Since this concert is held in October, you won’t have to worry about getting caught in the “Cold November Rain,” but you will enjoy listening to this classic power ballad. Is there anything better? Plus, seeing Guns N’ Roses in person is certain to boost your spirits. The excitement of traveling to downtown Salt Lake City, sharing the event with friends, taking photos of your favorite band, and enjoying the memories will lift your spirits for weeks before and after.
Even with any incurred expenses, it will be well worth it to hear your favorite band play their hits live. If you’re lucky, you might even hear “Shadow of Your Love.”
Accommodations and Attractions
If you’re spending all night rock and rolling to GN’R, you’ll probably want a place to crash. You won’t be taking any long drives home after this one. Some recommended hotels include the Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Downtown, a world-renowned hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. There’s also the Kimpton Hotel Monaco, an upscale place right in the heart of SLC and the Grand America Hotel, a sprawling resort-style hotel for high rollers.
