His small performance was given at the store of John Varvatos, fashion designer, in Manhattan. Hardcore Guns and Roses fans were thrilled at the unexpected treat.
Then again on Valentine’s Day, the legendary rock band gave an unannounced performance at the Rose Bar in Manhattan. There were a few stars in the audience for this performance, including Fabrizio Moretti of “The Stokes”. Axl and the gang played a set of 17 songs, which included many long time fan favorites such as “Sweet Child of Mine, Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, Patience, and many others”.They also tried a few songs from their newest album entitles “Chinese Democracy” which did not make it very well in the music world
