Monday: Guns or Roses
"simply the best GNR tribute out there!"
Formed in 2009, Guns or Roses began extensive rehearsals to launch themselves as the ultimate tribute to the Hollywood hellraisers. Now ten years on, they have firmly established themselves as one of the best tribute bands out there.
They have headlined festivals in Norway, Switzerland, Belgium, Bulgaria, as well as the UK and Ireland. They appeared at the legendary Isle Of Wight Festival in 2017 where they played to a packed out, at-capacity Electro Love tent and were invited back again in 2018. They have even headlined a festival at Donington, home of the infamous Monsters of Rock!
But their biggest audience undoubtedly came in 2015 when the band were chosen to appear in an episode of 'Don't Tell the Bride' as the show moved to BBC One. Steve, the groom, being a lifelong Guns N' Roses fan decided to plan the wedding loosely based on the November Rain video. Complete with a choir accompanying them, the band broke into 'Sweet Child of Mine' as bride Nicki entered the church for her walk up the aisle. The episode aired to 3.2 million people, making it the highest ever watched episode at the time and Steve and Nicki have remained good friends with the band ever since.
Performing all the iconic hits that everybody loves, from 'Welcome to the Jungle', 'Sweet Child of Mine', 'Paradise City' and 'November Rain' - Guns or Roses can make you believe you're watching the original band and some fans even rate them as better than the real thing! A force to be reckoned with, Guns or Roses have to be seen to be believed!
