Guns N’ Roses’ Not in This Lifetime Tour brings together frontman Axl Rose, guitarist Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan for the first time in 23 years. The massive stadium tour touched down in Cincinnati on Wednesday night, and the reunited trio was greeted by a fourth member of the band’s classic lineup.
Drummer Steven Adler joined GNR on stage near the end of their main set, sitting behind the kit for “Out Ta Get Me” and “My Michelle”. It marked Adler’s first time performing alongside his former bandmates in 26 years. Check out photos and videos of the reunion below.
Adler joined Guns N Roses shortly after their formation in 1985. He remained an integral member for the next five years, including the recording of Appetite For Destruction. Despite this, Adler was fired from the band in 1990 due to his drug abuse. He was replaced by Matt Sorum.
With Adler’s appearance in Cincinnati, guitarist Izzy Stradlin is the only member of GNR’s classic lineup who has yet to take part in the band’s reunion.
