Guns N’ Roses Turn Las Vegas Into ‘Paradise City’ in 3D Movie Preview

Guns N' Roses "Paradise City" live in Las Vegas

Last fall, Guns N’ Roses played a 12-show Las Vegas residency at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band revealed on Twitter that the November 21 show was being captured in 3D. Now, 3D concert-movie producers Rock Fuel Media have posted a nearly eight-minute clip from the residency, featuring, what else, “Paradise City.” The band has changed over the years, as has Axl Rose’s high-pitched voice, but when the confetti drops, the fireballs burst, and Rose scampers up to join the above-stage pole dancers, well, it’s safe to say the seedily hedonistic GNR spirit remains intact.

Rock Fuel has set up a Facebook page for a full 3D concert movie from GNR’s “Appetite for Democracy” Vegas stint, and says to expect a release in theaters, on TV, and via DVD later this year. A publicist for Rose didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail requesting comment.
