Guns N’ Roses played an epic show at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. last night, running through a setlist that spanned pretty much their entire catalog. They started off with a few cuts from Appetite for Destruction, then switched over to Use Your Illusion I and II, and even performed some from Chinese Democracy, an album that’s been called the most expensive rock album ever produced.
They filled out the performance with covers from iconic bands like Wings, the Misfits, Soundgarden, the Who and a few others. The show lasted well into the night, which some have reported was a total of four hours.
Below is a photo gallery of shots taken during the evening by staff photographer Katarina Benzova.
