Going back to the classics has proved to be a lucrative move for a reunited Guns N’ Roses, whose reboot of their classic-era line-up became the highest grossing live act of 2017, ahead of bands like U2, Metallica and Red Hot Chili Peppers. (Remember, before this Guns N’ Roses hadn’t put out an album in almost a decade and Slash and McKagan hadn’t been a part of the band for close to two decades).


Given the significance of nostalgia in their current story, it only makes sense that Guns N’ Roses would want to mark the 30th anniversary of their debut album, 1987’s Appetite For Destruction with something special. (Besides the fact that it’s one of the all-time great debut albums in rock history, of course).

Appetite turns 30 tomorrow, and according to hawk-eyed fans, posters featuring the hashtag #Appetite30th have recently appeared in and around the Apollo Theatre in New York, suggesting that something indeed, is up. The posters also feature the iconic Appetite For Destruction cover art, so that’s another clue.

As it turns out, last month the band had announced a special invite-only show at the Apollo on July 20, for subscribers of a satellite radio network. Will the show feature a special tribute to Appetite For Destruction? While the appearance of the #Appetite30th hashtag indicates that the album will feature prominently in the band’s setlist, it remains to be seen how exactly Guns N’ Roses intend to mark the occasion. Stay tuned.
