Guns N' Roses to release box sets of Use Your Illusion 1 and 2, with 63 previously unreleased live tracks

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Hey hardcore Guns N' Roses freaks: Universal Music Canada has some good news for you.

      The label has just announced that, on November 11, it will release super-deluxe box-set editions of the band's 1991 albums, Use Your Illusion 1  and Use Your Illusion 2.

      The best news is that the upcoming releases will include a total of 97 tracks, 63 of which are previously unreleased live recordings.

      Here's a sample:

      The unreleased tracks are from concerts recorded at New York's Ritz Theatre in May of '91 and at Las Vegas's Thomas & Mack Centre in January of '92.

      One highlight of the New York show are the performances of "Don't Cry” and “You Ain’t The First", which feature the late Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon on guest vocals. (You remember him--he's he guy who got naked and peed on stage in Vancouver, in the general direction of fans, when Blind Melon opened for Lenny Kravitz on Halloween night in 1993.)

      The super-deluxe box sets are housed with a 100-page hardcover book with unreleased photos, memorabilia, and archival documents, and a bunch of other neat stuff that hardcore Guns N' Roses freaks should enjoy.

      You can pre-order the packages here.
