Guns N' Roses Dedicate Coachella Performance To Prince

(hennemusic) Guns N' Roses returned to Coachella on April 23 for an encore performance as headliners during the annual festival's second weekend and videos from the show have been posted online.

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.
