Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler returned to the band Wednesday night in Cincinnati to perform with the group for the first time since 1990 (not counting Guns N’ Roses’ Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction performance in 2012, which went on without Axl Rose).
Adler joined the current band members — Rose, guitarist Slash, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, bassist Duff McKagan, guitarist Richard Fortus, second keyboardist Melissa Reeves, and current drummer Frank Ferrer. Together they all played “Out Ta Get Me” and “My Michelle.”
The band shared a photo of Adler behind the drum set to their social media accounts and wrote, “Something just happened in Cincy right now…,” before sharing, “Live from Cincy… #NotInThisLifetime…”
Guns N’ Roses first announced their summer tour in April, after they were already slated to headline Coachella and play two shows in Las Vegas. The “Not In This Lifetime” tour kicked off in June and runs through August.
