Full Show Friday: Guns N' Roses - Live at The Ritz 1988

Happy Friday! Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can. As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Guns N' Roses!

Filmed for MTV back in the Day, this professional shot video shows why GnR's first album still ranks as one of the best debut rock albums ever.  The original lineup is all here and the band fires on all cylinders as they tear apart the Ritz...aka Webster Hall here in NYC.  Appetite for Destruction gets a full airing minus "Think About You", "Anything Goes" and "You're Crazy".  It is a testament to the band that all of these songs sound pretty fucking great listening to them today, I for one never thought these guys would have this staying power when I heard them back then, but this show cooks!

Highlights are "Mr. Brownstone" a mammoth "Paradise City", spacious "Rocket Queen" and the cool "Knocking on Heavens Door" show closer...we will have to get to that in our Monday Dylan series one day...Enjoy your weekend!
