This is Guns N’ Roses’ setlist from the first night of their U.S. tour

Here’s what Guns N’ Roses played on the opening night of their 2021 North American tour

After more than 15 months away from the stage, Guns N’ Roses returned with a bang this weekend in Pennsylvania.

Headlining the 30,000-capacity Hersheypark Stadium, Axl, Slash, Duff and co. didn’t come to mess around, and unloaded a frankly ludicrous setlist of greatest hits and monstrous covers, including – for the first time ever – a rendition of The Stooges’ I Wanna Be Your Dog with Duff on vocals.

Not too dissimilar to that mammoth setlists they’ve been pumping out throughout the Not In This Lifetime world tour, GNR blasted through 20 fan favourites including Rocket Queen, You Could Be Mine and Civil War. There was even a Velvet Revolver cover thrown in for good measure.

If you’re heading to see Guns N’ Roses on tour across the United States this summer, here’s what’s in store…
