Editorial Reviews

In November 2012, with a team of 3D cameras rolling, the legendary, multi-platinum selling rock band Guns N' Roses took the desert by storm, performing a blistering set at The Joint in the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Clocking in at just under three hours, the band's explosive set includes all of their biggest hits and classic GNR staples.

Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live at the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas, will be available on Blu-ray™, featuring the complete concert film in both 3D and 2D plus an interactive 3D photo gallery, and standard DVD featuring the 2D version of the film. Both releases are mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and feature bonus interviews with the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I had hoped for!!! July 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Guns N' Roses, both the original best known line-up, as well as the current one.

As I've never actually been to one of their concerts (yet), I was afraid that Axl would not be able to match his incredible voice, but even though he's now older, and given the fact that he moves around on the stage a lot, his voice is very much still there.

His voice gets the biggest star of my review, but there are several other things I love about this concert film:

- The length - it's over 2.5 hours long.

- The band - Axl has picked some extremely talented musicians.

- The songs - A good mix of the "oldies", the new, and some covers.

- The add-on's - Most of the band members get to shine with either their own music or something they've chosen to play.

The only thing I would put under CONS, is that I wasn't THERE!!!! :-D

As a guitar player, some things that was icing on the cake was Bumblefoot's intro to Don't Cry, Richard's intro to Knocking on Heaven's Door, Dizzy's intro to Zeppelin's No Quarter, and Bumblefoot & Richard's intro to Patience.

Awesome DVD. I am so happy I pre-ordered it and got it as soon as possible.

I can only HIGHLY recommend this. BUY IT NOW!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, great disc, great band. July 2, 2014
In the tradition of Guns N' Roses, it has been twenty-two years since the last home video release of a concert (the Use Your Illusion set in 1992). Needless to say, quite a few things have changed in the land of Guns N' Roses since then. The ultimate question being, of course: is it worth the wait. I can definitely say it is. Being able to see a professionally recorded show with the new lineup is quite a thrill. It gives a new perspective to the Guns N' Roses songs I have known for years, and it was quite exciting to see songs from Chinese Democracy in an official live release.

As for the band itself...it's mammoth, and tight. In addition to three guitarists, there are two synthesizer/keyboard players, bass, drums, and of course the great Axl Rose. Although looking a little worse for the wear, there is absolutely no denying Rose still sings the hell out of the songs. Occasionally, the effect of age on his voice is inescapable, but considering Rose can still sing these songs at the age of 52 while giving his all physically is nothing short of spectacular.

The DVD itself is fantastic. The picture was absolutely immaculate, and the sound mix was perfect. I have seen this band live twice, and listening to the DVD I was able to pick up intricacies in the sound (particularly the guitars) that I'd never heard before. The extra interviews (with keyboardist Dizzy Reed, bassist Tommy Stinson, Guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, and guitarist DJ Ashba) are all very entertaining and go a long way towards showing this is a real band and not just Axl's yes men.

This is definitely worth a purchase, and I know I will be watching this over and over and giving my old Use Your Illusion VHS tapes a much needed break.

As a longtime GnR fan who saw the group perform in their heyday, I was curious to see what the current incarnation of Axl and his traveling all-star circus would sound like. To be honest, I wanted to absolutely hate this dvd/concert. However, it's pretty good.

The production values are impressive, the concert was shot extremely well. The band still maintains that larger than life image with Axl playing the piano raised over the crowd, the pyrotechnics and guitarists playing high above the crowd on either side of the stage. For the hardcore guitarist - the trio of Ron Thal, DJ Ashba and Richard Fortus shine on all of the songs. I thought Ron was particularly impressive with his soloing on a number of favorites.

The band does a good job covering the material from Appetite and the Use Your Illusion albums. What surprised me the most was how well the material from Chinese Democracy sounded when played live (I was not a huge fan of that album). The band took breaks during the show to showcase each guitarist with a brief solo - each very unique to the individual musician.

I thought the songs were somewhat overproduced, especially the Appetite tunes which were obviously a bit more stripped down when first recorded.

This is a decent concert to see - for those who are curious to see what Axl has done since the rest of their group went their separate ways. Appetite for Democracy reminds me of a KISS concert today. They can have the same name, play the old tunes and even wear the makeup but it's not Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steve/Matt. It just doesn't quite sound the same to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic! August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
I was fortunate enough to catch two shows this year during the Vegas Residency. To say that I was blown away is an understatement! And though this was recorded two years prior, I felt like I was there. Axl, Dizzy, Tommy, Richard, Frank, Chris, Bumblefoot, and DJ have a chemistry on stage that is stronger than any previous lineup of Guns N' Roses. The only thing I miss from this DVD is Axl's interaction with the audience. I did, however, enjoy the interviews in the bonus features.
