Lies N’ Destruction will be bringing you the swagger and booze fuelled classic songs from Guns N’ Roses, their debut album Appetite For Destruction played in chronological order Front to Back, beginning with Welcome To The Jungle and closing with fan favourite Rocket Queen, with Sweet Child O Mine, Paradise City and all of your favourites from rocks best tucked in there, just how you remember them.

Whilst Sydney mainstays, Damage Inc who have been stampeding venues for years will leave you ears bleeding with Metallica’s Black Album played in reverse order, Back to Front, starting with The Struggle Within and ending with the ground breaking Enter Sandman, and everything in between, Nothing Else Matters, Wherever I May Roam, Sad But True and more.

However there is more to come, as Lies N’ Destruction will take to the stage and close out the night with all of your favourite tracks from Guns N’ Roses Use You Illusion Double Album.

This is a night of pure rock n roll debauchery which is NOT to be missed, tickets on sale NOW!!

Guns N Roses + Metallica a brief history in rock shenanigans.


July 1992, two of rocks biggest acts of the era, Metallica and Guns N’ Roses launched a co-headline tour across the USA. Maybe the tour was doomed from the start? Metallica were using heaps of pyro in their show, and Guns N’ Roses front man, Axl Rose was taking anywhere up to 2 hours to get on stage after Metallica finished their set. 
Metallica’s Black Album was burning up the charts, and Guns N’ Roses were touring the Use Your Illusion double release, hot on the heels of their mammoth debut Appetite for Destruction.

On Aug 8, 1992 in Montreal, James Hetfield lost his bearings half way during Fade To Black and was standing on top of a pyro grate when it went off, he was immediately rushed to hospital and suffered third degree burns to his arm. The band finished their set early.

Guns N’ Roses had an opportunity to jump on stage sooner to salvage the gig and appease the crowd, however they took 3 hours to take the stage and when Axl, citing a throat injury, left the stage earlier than normal, the crowd, now furious at this point, rioted, trashing the stadium, tipping cars and looting nearby stores.


Come and experience what is one hell of a night, without the pyro, without the late starts and get them fists in the air, it all goes down Saturday October 19 @ Miranda Hotel.


What’s better than seeing your favourite band on stage?

Seeing two of them on the same stage on the same night, right?
