It’s a little-known fact, Guns N’ Roses fresh off the release of their debut album and after making a name for themselves on the infamous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, performed live at the Convention Center in downtown Oshkosh in the spring of 1988. A few months later, the notorious group released the soon to be number one single, “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and over 100 million album sales later, the rest is history.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the historic show, Saturday, May 19th, the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel is hosting one of the world’s best tribute bands: Gun Sin Roses. Taking place in the same room and on the same stage Guns N’ Roses played on 30 years earlier, Gun Sin Roses looks forward to helping Wisconsin’s “Event City” commemorate one of its greatest musical moments live in the Oshkosh Convention Center.
“Guns N’ Roses are playing sold-out stadium shows, so it wasn’t realistic to bring them back to the Convention Center,” adds Jason Crooks, Convention Services Manager at the Best Western Premier. “We thought we could have some fun with the 30th anniversary by hosting a really talented tribute group.”
Join the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel & Convention Center as we “Party like it’s 1988!” with Gun Sin Roses. Tickets are on sale now at Hometown Tickets, $12 in advance, $15 day of show. A night of nostalgia and fun as concert-goers are encouraged to dress like it’s 1988. Everyone attending the event in costume will enter a free raffle for a future stay at Oshkosh’s #1 Rated Hotel on TripAdvisor®, the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel.
A portion of the proceeds will go back to the Oshkosh Community. Music fans are invited to the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel and Convention Center on Saturday, May 19th at 8 p.m. for a great time and a great community event!
About Gun Sin Roses: Voted the 2016 “Best Tribute Band” by foundinWI.com, Gun Sin Roses pays homage to the Guns N’ Roses of the “Appetite for Destruction” days. With note-for-note accuracy, Gun Sin Roses rips through the entire “Appetite” and “Lies” catalog, as well as much of the “Use Your Illusion” records. Drew Herdegen furiously wails through all the high notes, while Daniel Nathan scorches riffs through the authentic Slash Marshalls. Tomcat Joe and Mark Hodgkins own the right side of the stage, keeping the rhythm in the pocket and adding ferocious gang vocals. David Johnson holds it all together on the skins, making sure you get your hands clapping and your feet stomping. Come to a Gun Sin Roses show to experience a rock show the way it should be, raucous, reckless, and slightly offensive!
