Axl Rose and crew hits Brazil on Nov. 8 with ‘Not in This Lifetime’ tour
Axl Rose and the rest of Guns N’ Roses brings “Not in This Lifetime” world tour to Brazil starting Nov. 8 at Porto Alegre.

It looks like fans of Guns N’ Roses can now watch the hard rock group’s Not in This Lifetime tour in Brazil even if they weren’t there last November 8 as footage of the concert has surfaced online to the delight of the fans.

The said event was held at Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre and was the sixth stop of the group’s South American leg, which opened on October 27 in Lima, Peru, according to Guns N’ Roses’ official website.

The momentous concert saw the reunited trio of Axl Rose, Duff McKagan and Slash as they delivered a 23-song set of tracks from throughout the band’s career, particularly emphasizing their 1987 debut, Appetite for Destruction.

The event is the first of six shows on Brazil, which will move to Sao Paolo for two more concerts before dates in Brasilia, Curitiba and Rio de Janeiro. After the South American tour, Guns N’ Roses will resume their concerts in the New Year after taking a breather, with dates in Japan, New Zealand and Australia.

Meanwhile, Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett panned Guns N’ Roses in a new interview with the L.A. Timessaying that the flamboyant hard rock band has become a “nostalgia act” which, according to him, is “a kind of sad.”

The Metallica’s guitarist pointed to the fact that GnR have not produced any new music in almost a decade. The band’s most recent album, Chinese Democracy, was released last November 2008.

The lead guitarist was contrasting Metallica‘s continuing efforts to produce new music with other bands that launched in the Eighties but now are focused on performing and touring their classic material, thus citing Guns N’ Roses which they famously toured with in 1992.

While Axl Rose and the rest of the band have not commented on the issue, it seems Guns N’ Roses are off to a great start with their Not in This Lifetime tour as evidenced by their successful gig in Argentina and sold-out concerts in the Latin America tour.
