Bootlegs and Tour Dates 06

Guns N' Roses Bootlegs

and Tour Dates 06

Guns N' Roses is the second most bootlegged band in music history and for obvious reason.  They are one of the best live performance bands in the music industry.  They made a living off their live shows from the very beginning of their career.  They are so heavily bootlegged because each show is unpredictable and because Axl's vocal style changes with his mood.  GNR also performs songs live that may never be officially recorded and a bootleg offers the rare opportunity for fans to hear them.  A lot of people cannot attend the live shows and bootlegs benefit them as well.  Every once in a while, you may encounter bootleg cds being sold as officially licensed merchandise.  I created this list so you can recognize them when you see them and you won't get ripped off.  Once you know what is out there, you can search on Ebay for GNR music you never knew existed.  It also serves as a list of tour dates from the beginning of their career to present.  This list may also help you date your concert tees.  These bootleg cds have been produced by various fans who attended the live shows, and by non-US bootleg record labels.  They are listed in order of the appearance date, place, whether a cd or dvd was made from the show and how many.

I have not attached a collector value to these albums because I honestly don't know what they are worth, with the exception of the few rare vinyl bootlegs.  Suffice it to say that they are typically more valuable than officially licensed merchandise because they are so hard to obtain and difficult to replace.  This guide is offered for information purposes only.
