WHAT SONGS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED LIVE BY GUNS N' ROSES?

6 posts in this topic

Guns N' Roses have performed a vast majority of their recorded songs across their 30+ year career. Some more frequently than others, but many songs have been played live at least once, if not more. In this thread you will find detailed information on which songs have been performed live by GN'R, when they were first performed live, and when they were in rotation in the band's setlists. In this first post, for convenience's sake, is also a list of GN'R songs on their studio albums (i.e. no unreleased demos) that have never been performed live.
