Guns Re'Loaded giving it loads at a recent gig.
There’s another special rock 'n roll treat in store for Drogheda when the Guns Re'Loaded tribute band, return to the Barrel stage at McHugh's next Saturday, September 30th, for one of their increasingly incendiary shows. The band made their McHugh’s debut back in March when they played a storming show to a sell-out crowd.
Guns 'n Roses were one of the most popular bands worldwide of their time after they emerged during the mid-'80s, and for the next 10 or 15 years or so through various line-up changes and libel suits, they managed to thrill and infuriate crowds at all the top venues, cities and festivals on the planet.
Hard to believe now but it's over 30 years since Guns 'n Roses first appeared at Slane and lived down to their reputation by arriving on stage very late with all Guns and Roses blazing to deliver a brooding, controversial performance.
Guns Re'Loaded were formed by five rock fanatics who met through their shared love of the music and are committed to creating the very best live Guns 'N Roses experience each time they take the stage. The energy, performance and hard rock sound of this band in action has to be seen to be believed!

The sound is achieved by expert musicianship, and exact replica equipment used by GnR in their prime, from 1988-1992, including Slash and Duff's duplicate guitars and 3 Marshall half-stack amplifiers. The boys play an extensive set-list spanning the first 4 legendary albums - Appetite for Destruction, Lies (EP), and Use Your Illusion 1 & 2.
Guns Re'Loaded are fast establishing themselves as the biggest, supremely accurate and most appreciated Guns 'n' Roses tribute band in the country. In a short time, they lads have played some of the country's premier live music venues and can now add Drogheda to the list, courtesy of Saturday night's return gig at McHugh's Barrel stage.
The band are also booked for a number of outdoor festivals, biker rallies and fan events and conventions throughout the land. Expect all the hits and some serious lipstick-pouting and spandex posing including Slash's languid, tell-tale fag in mouth pose or even the possibility of an on-stage, real life tantrum courtesy of the ever unpredictable and occasionally temperamental lead vocalist, Asl Roxe, and his "most dangerous band in the land"...
