Guns N’ Roses’ highly anticipated third and fourth studio albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II were originally released simultaneously on September 17, 1991. With the massive success of GN’R Lies and Appetite For Destruction, the band had the daunting task of a follow up album. Not only did the band deliver, Guns N’ Roses surprised the world by releasing not one but two new, full length studio albums. Upon release, Use Your Illusion I reached No. 2 and Use Your Illusion II took the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 chart concurrently, selling over 500k in the first two hours of release, with an estimated sales of over 685k and 770k respectively within the first week of release.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve got to admit that its nice to be seeing the touring updates once again and one can only hope that nothing suddenly goes South and finds wave after wave of cancellations being announced again. So believe it or not I’ve never seen GNR in concert before and that even surprises me since I was listening to them way before most of my friends were. It never seemed to be in the cards back in the heyday and now its just a wee pricey an adventure to undertake but let’s see if I can finally cross them off my bucket list with this go round. I’d love to see the MetLife Stadium show since the only other “close” date would be in Atlantic City and well, that’s a bit of a hike for me from our beautiful Brooklyn HQ. I am also very psyched to see Mammoth WVH as big things seem to be happening for the only son of the late, great Edward Van Halen. Okay, that’s all I have about this one so you kind readers can chime in down below and let me know what you think. Judging by the emails flowing into the queue this morning, I will be saying “see you next time” quite a bit today ;p – Stay tuned for more.
