UPDATE: Guns N’ Roses will play at New York’s Apollo Theatre on July 20 at an invitation-only show that will air exclusively on SiriusXM’s Howard 101.

Guns N’ Roses are planning a special show to mark the 30th anniversary of their debut album Appetite For Destruction.

Posters have been spotted at New York’s Times Square and outside the city’s Apollo Theatre showing the classic GNR skull cross with #Appetite30th running along the bottom.

Friday, July 21, will mark the album’s anniversary – with the band now confirmed to be playing the night before at the New York venue.

Guns N’ Roses have just wrapped up the European leg of their Not In This Lifetime tour, with their next live date scheduled for July 27 when they’ll play at The Dome in St Louis.

Appetite For Destruction catapulted Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler into the limelight and spawned classic tracks including Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Rocket Queen, and Mr Brownstone.

It was revealed earlier this week that Guns N’ Roses were the top earners in rock in 2016, with revenues from sales, streaming, publishing and touring adding up to a total of $42.3 million.
