On the 29th June, Geffen/UMe celebrates one of rock's most important and infamous bands, Guns n' Roses, with the release of Appetite For Destruction: Locked N' Loaded Edition box set. Commemorating the band's highly influential album debut Appetite For Destruction, this lavish box set is the ultimate GnFnR fan's dream fulfilled.
Along with 12 remastered tracks compiled from EPs and B-sides, 25 previously unreleased demos, the previously unreleased focus track Shadow Of Your Love was recorded by producer Mike Clink one month before the album sessions began and actually landed him the gig
Following the group's 1985 formation, Guns N' Roses injected unbridled attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. They went on to captivate the entire world with the 21st July, 1987 release of Appetite For Destruction, which remains the best-selling U.S. debut album ever, moving over 30 million copies globally.
Appetite features such indelible tracks such as the No. 1 single "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Welcome To The Jungle," "Nightrain," and "Paradise City."
The Appetite legacy will be affirmed with an expansive five-disc, seven-LP, seven-7” box set and collectables, and will be released in multiple formats: 4CD/1Blu-ray Audio Super Deluxe Edition with a 96 page book featuring unreleased photos, from Axl Rose’s personal archive, a 2CD Deluxe Edition, 2LP 180-gram heavyweight vinyl edition, 1 CD remaster, and digital download/streaming equivalents
The band’s ongoing Not In This Lifetime tour has now become the fourth most lucrative tours in music history… and shows no sign of slowing down just yet. The European leg is set to kick off in June as the band rips through stadiums and topping festival bills for eight weeks, including a highly anticipated slot at their spiritual home in Donington Park – the prestigious Download Festival on Saturday 9th June
