Guns N' Roses Get Opening Acts


Eagles of Death Metal have been added to the bill of Friday's Guns N' Roses show at the Q, which will feature frontman W. Axl Rose and none of the guys who played on the 15-million-selling Appetite for Destruction. In an understandable Freudian slip, the headline of Live Nation's announcement of the act's addition to the bill reads "Eagles of Death Metal & Suicide Girls to join Axl Rose & Sebastian Bach." Subsequent references identify the Axl show as "Guns N' Roses." Suicide Girls -- the pierced, tattooed, nimble, bi-curious-leaning punk-rock stripper troupe -- will perform between the band's sets. Sebastian Bach, the former Skid Row frontman who's been joining GNR for "Paradise City," will host his official after-party at nearby Peabody's that night. Doors open at 10 p.m. -- D.X. Ferris
