All the news lately seems to be about Metallica's upcoming 3D movie, but their one-time tour mates Guns N' Roses have their own stereoscopic concert epic coming as well. Guns filmed one of the shows during their recent 12-show residency last November at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas and will release it at some point in 2013. The disc will be the band's first concert DVD in more than 20 years.
The DVD was filmed on November 21st and while the final set list for the 3D release has yet to be determined, the show that night was more than three hours long and included 26 songs spanning the entire range of Guns' history and lineups. Tracks that could appear include "Chinese Democracy," "Welcome To The Jungle," "Mr. Brownstone," "Estranged," "You Could Be Mine" and more.
- The group has released a teaser clip of the final song of the show, "Paradise City."
- The film will also see a limited release in theaters, along with video-on-demand outlets.
- Guns N' Roses will head to Australia in March for a handful of shows that include stops in Perth, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
