Guns N' Roses Dedicate Coachella Performance To Prince
The seventh show of the group's reunion tour featured two debuts: "Out ta Get Me" from 1987's "Appetite For Destruction" and "Used To Love Her" from 1988's "Lies."
Rumors circulated ahead of the show that Guns N' Roses might deliver a tribute to Prince, who passed away on April 21 at the age of 57. "I had a bootleg laser disc…do you know what a laser disc is?," Axl Rose asked the crowd after explaining the band didn't have time to fully prepare a proper tribute. "A laser disc is like a big Frisbee, a CD of Purple Rain. Duff is a huge fan. Anyway, we don't want to dedicate a song; we'll dedicate the whole show any everything to the memory of Prince."
Duff McKagan offered his own personal tribute by playing a white bass during the show that featured a purple decal of Prince's symbol. The Coachella appearance wraps up the spring preview of Guns N' Roses reunion run, which will launch a summer stadium tour of North America at Ford Field in Detroit, MI on June 23.
