Three hard-rocking bands take the stage at The Fillmore to pay tribute to the Kings of Hollywood: Guns N' Roses, Mötley Crüe and Poison. Slash and Axl may never get back together, but with Guns N' Roses tribute band Appetite for Destruction's dead-on looks, from Axl's kilt to Slash's signature top hat and veil of black hair, accompanying note-for-note renditions of G N' R hits like "Sweet Child of Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle," you'll think it's 1991 all over again. For the past 15 years, the band has been selling out venues throughout the Northeast, twice sharing the stage with ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke. Also performing will be Red, White and Crue and Poisn'd. Learn More
