RELEASED 31st OCTOBER 2014 VIA UNIVERSAL MUSIC.
In November 2012, with a team of 3D cameras rolling, the legendary, multi-platinum selling rock band Guns N’ Roses took the desert by storm, performing a blistering set at The Joint in the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Clocking in at just under three hours, the band’s explosive set includes all of their biggest hits and classic GN’R staples.
Universal Strategic Marketing (USM) will release the live Guns N’ Roses concert film Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live at the Hard Rock Casino – Las Vegas, on October 31 2014, which will be available on Blu-ray™, featuring the complete concert film in both 3D and 2D plus an interactive 3D photo gallery, standard DVD featuring the 2D version of the film, and both Deluxe 2CD+Blu-ray and Deluxe 2CD+DVD sets. Both the Blu-ray and DVD releases are mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and feature bonus interviews with the band. The GN’R Appetite For Democracy Official App (iOS/Android), which can be downloaded at Fantracks.com, brings the concert experience to a new level by connecting GN’R directly with their fans, allowing fans to connect with each other via social media, buy exclusive merchandise, check tour/cinema dates for the movie, preview digital tracks of the film; and purchase or stream via VOD the digital long form concert.
Released in the U.S. on July 1st by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), Appetite For Democracy 3D debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Music DVD chart where it stayed for the first two weeks. Since its release, it has remained in the Top 5 for a total of eight weeks straight and continues to stay in the Top 10.
“The U.S. DVD and Blu-Ray™ release has exceeded our sales expectations,” says the film’s producer Barry Summers, Rock Fuel Media. “We’re very proud to release this internationally for GN’R fans to enjoy for many years to come,” continues Summers.
In 1987 Guns N’ Roses burst onto the hard rock scene and, with their punk rock ethics and an uncompromising, explosive sound, turned a scene filled with synth-pop and hair-metal on its end, propelling the band to the top of the charts. Filling stadiums and arenas across the globe, much like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Sex Pistols, Guns N’ Roses wrote their own chapter in rock and roll history and continue to make their own rules.
Now, celebrated worldwide as one of the most important rock acts in music history, Guns N’ Roses are Axl Rose, DJ Ashba (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Richard Fortus (guitar), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (guitar), Chris Pitman (keyboards) and Frank Ferrer (drums). Guns N’ Roses continue on their sold-out global arena tour, with shows in the US, Europe, visits to Latin America and multiple festivals, having played to millions of fans around the globe.
