Guns N’ Roses plays “Dead Horse” for the first time in 26 years

Guns N’ Roses performed on October 23 in Oklahoma, United States, and there prepared a surprise for the fans. After 26 years without playing “Dead Horse” from the album Use Your Illusion (1991), the group performed it live.


The performance is part of the Not in This Lifetime tour, in addition to “Dead Horse,” which you can watch below, the group played less famous songs like “Locomotive,” “Out Ta Get Me,” and “Shadow of Your Love.”

The group is about to end its “Not In This Lifetime …” tour, which over the past three years has become one of the most profitable ever, second only to U2 and Ed Sheeran.

Something they haven’t done yet is to play a new song, even though the band has indicated several times in interviews this year that they wanted to go to the studio in 2019 to record a new album. It would be their first LP since 2008’s Chinese Democracy, and the first with Slash and Duff McKagan back in the band since the 1993 collection of The Spaghetti Incident covers.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
