Guns N’ Roses recently released a professional-shot performance of their 2017 performance of the iconic GNR song, “Patience.” Check out the video below.
The concert was recorded at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington on September 3, 2017, during the sixth leg of the band’s ongoing Not In This Lifetime tour, which began in the spring of 2016.
G N’ R Lies (1988) was Guns N Roses’ second studio album, and the song “Patience” was released as the album’s single in April 1989. The highest position the song reached on the US Billboard Hot 100 was #4. This ballad was recorded in one take by producer Mike Clink and has three acoustic guitars. The band recorded a music video for the track, which can be found on their DVD, Welcome to the Videos. Despite never being explicitly stated in the album or interviews, the track’s inspiration is widely held to be the troubled relationship between Axl Rose and his now ex-wife Erin Everly.
Moreover, Billboard has produced a summary of the 10 biggest-grossing tours in the history of Billboard Boxscore, and Guns N’ Roses are included on the list.
“Over nearly four decades, Billboard Boxscore has charted the biggest tours in the world,” Billboard wrote. “From Whitney Houston and Billy Joel in the ‘80s to SZA and Post Malone in 2023, artists have topped Boxscore charts in Vegas theaters, international stadiums, and everything in between.”
The band will play two Middle Eastern gigs, then go to Europe for a series of headline and festival events in June and July, and finally launch their North American tour in August.
