Guns N' Roses Announced Vegas Residency


When you think Las Vegas residencies, you tend to think artists along the lines of Elvis Presley, Celine Dion or Rod Stewart—singers who happily crooned their way through the standards songbook to collect that big ole Vegas paycheck. 

But hard rock is coming to Sin City! Earlier this year, Mötley Crüe extended the Sunset Strip into Nevada for a brief residency, and it looks like Guns N' Roses took notice. Axl Rose & co. are headed to Vegas for a 12-date residency starting this Halloween. Lowest-priced tickets are $41 which is a steal when you think about it: This show will be at least an hour-and-a-half long, whereas 41 bucks usually lasts 15 minutes in Vegas.

They've dubbed it "Appetite for Democracy," referring to their brilliant debut Appetite For Destruction and their most recent record Chinese Democracy. That's a pretty cool title, but here are five names they should really consider adopting for their Las Vegas residency instead.

Oh, wait, ignore that last one. It's a stupid name.
