Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan have performed together as Guns N’ Roses for the first time in 23 years.

The band picked Troubadour, a small Los Angeles club, where they were first noticed.

The concert at the West Hollywood club was reportedly only confirmed on April 1.

Just 500 fans were allowed to see one of the biggest groups of the late 1980s and early 1990s reformed.

The intimate concert was announced at midday on April 1 and tickets were just $10.Guns N Roses Troubadour reunion

54-year-old Axl Rose still has his long blond hair but there was no bandana, Slash kept his trademark top-hat over his black curls.

Fans said they started the show with It’s So Easy, which has frequently been the band’s opener.

Years of rumors of a Guns N’ Roses reunion came to fruition earlier this year when the band were announced as headliners for the Coachella festival, which will take place later his month in the California desert.

Guns N’ Roses also announced details of their North American tour, which will all be in stadiums – so rather different from this intimate gig.

The main leg of the Not in This Lifetime Tour will begin on June 23 at Ford Field in Detroit, home to the National Football League’s Detroit Lions, and run until August 22 in San Diego.

Guns N’ Roses have only announced three concerts outside the United States – April 19 and 20 in Mexico City and July 16 in Toronto.


Tom Jones is to perform at the legendary West Hollywood nightclub Troubadour as part of a small tour in the US.

The Troubadour is a venue famous for early gigs from fellow greats Sir Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan.

Sir Tom Jones, 72, will also take to the stage at Philadelphia’s Theatre of the Living Arts and the Bowery Ballroom in New York during the tour in May.

It will follow Tom Jones’ latest stint as coach on British talent show The Voice.

The concerts were confirmed in a statement on Tom Jones’ official website.

The dates, which run from 11 to 18 May, are being held to mark the US launch of Tom Jones’ latest album Spirit In The Room, his second “back-to-basics” collection of blues numbers.

The short US tour will see Tom Jones perform intimate gigs at venues more often frequented by up-and-coming rock bands.

Founded in 1957, the Troubadour on Los Angeles’ Santa Monica Boulevard famously helped establish the careers of numerous bands and singers.

Artists including James Taylor, Carole King, the Eagles, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and Guns N’ Roses played gigs there in their early days.

Philadelphia’s Theatre of the Living Arts was originally a cinema, while New York’s Bowery Ballroom was built as a shop in the 1920s.

Most recently Tom Jones has performed in front of millions of viewers on the second series of The Voice in UK, in which he returned as a coach for aspiring vocalists alongside Jessie J, will.i.am and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue.
