Guns N Roses long-awaited 3D concert film Appetite For Democracy: Live From The Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas has finally gotten a worldwide release date.
While no United States date has been announced for the theatrical run or Blu-ray/DVD set at press time, fans in the UK, Spain, and Holland can head to cinemas starting April 3rd to see the film. It opens in Denmark theaters on April 7th, Mexico April 16th and Central America on April 17th. Argentina, Brazil, Japan and Europe join the US with a release date to be announced.
When released, the Blu-ray and DVD will be available in four formats: a standard DVD, a 3D/2D Blu-ray, a Deluxe 2 CD+DVD set and digital long form. The DVD and Blu-ray components both feature the full show, along with band interviews plus a 3D photo gallery, both with 5.1 surround and stereo audio. The CDs will feature all tracks from the show.
The nearly three hour show, clocking in at 2 hours and 43 minutes, was directed by Kerry Asmussen and produced by Barry Summers. This is the first live concert release from GNR since Use Your Illusion II in 1992.
Filmed during GNR’s Appetite For Democracy residency at The Joint in November 2012, celebrating twenty-five years of “Appetite for Destruction”and four years of “Chinese Democracy”, the elaborate Vegas style production features Rock Icon Axl Rose at the top of his game with his current lineup and features the band’s biggest hits including, “Welcome To The Jungle”, “Sweet Child Of Mine”, “Mr. Brownstone”, “November Rain”, “Chinese Democracy”, Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”, “Nightrain”, Paul McCartney’s “Live And Let Die”, “Paradise City”, and many more.
The announcement comes less than a month after the band confirmed their triumphant return to The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this spring called No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction that runs nine dates between May 21st and June 7th and features an all-new production to highlight the band’s legacy.
