Guns N’ Roses to support Feeding America with Chicago show

Rock and rollers Guns N’ Roses know that music can be used to help the greater good. In that spirit, the band have announced that they will stream their Chicago House of Blues show this Sunday (Feb. 19), with part of the proceeds going towards a worthy cause.

For $5, fans will be able to check out a special live stream of the concert on Guns N’ Roses’ official website, with a percentage of the proceeds going to assist Feeding America, a non-profit hunger relief organization consisting of a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks and food rescue organizations that serve nearly every county in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Guns N’ Roses are scheduled to kick off the gig at 11 p.m. CT, with openers Electric Sun taking the stage one hour prior.

What can fans expect from the gig? A glance at reviews and set lists from GN’R's current club tour show a loud, raw and lengthy evening of all the hits — “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Paradise City,” “Lie and Let Die,” “November Rain,” “Street of Dreams,” “This I Love” — off the band’s trademark albums “Appetite for Destruction,” “Use Your Illusion,” “Chinese Democracy” and others.

Guns N’ Roses are among this year’s inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and all of the original band members have announced that they will be present at the induction ceremony on April 14 at Cleveland’s Public Hall. Other groups set to be inducted this year include Beastie Boys, the Small Faces / Faces, Donovan and Laura Nyro. The show will be broadcast on HBO in early May.
