    Guns N' Roses 1986 Whisky-A-Go-Go Handbill as Opening Act. An original paper concert flyer for Guns N' Roses opening for the Dead Boys at both the Whisky-A-Go-Go on Sunset Strip in Hollywood/Los Angeles, and again at Fender's Ballroom in Long Beach 30 miles to the south. A handbill with a good homemade L.A. club feel to it, complete with a listing of local record stores like Rhino Westwood and Moby Disc. Features creative split-fountain printing (green on both sides, brown in middle), measures 11" x 8 1/2" and grades to Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: This was still eight months before the release of the band's debut, Appetite for Destruction, before they even started recording that album, and even a month before the release of their stopgap EP, Live?!*@ Like a Suicide.

    Condition details: Several nibble-chews around the edges, visible in our picture. The left edge of the handbill is somewhat toned from exposure. General creasing along the top edge, and a one-inch vertical crease in the white to the left of "Dead Boys."
