Guns N’ Roses, who are playing Oklahoma tonight for the first time since an April 1992 concert at the Myriad in Oklahoma City, are playing Lloyd Noble Center in Norman tonight.
Opening for them will be Oklahoma City band Hinder, who once boasted about turning down the opportunity to tour with GNR.
Hinder bassist Mike Rodden told MTV in 2007:
Rodden: We actually turned down Guns N’ Roses, if you can call them that. It’s more like Axl Rose and puppets.
We’ll see if Hinder fares better than 1992 opening act Smashing Pumpkins, who were reportedly booed off stage by the Oklahoma City crowd.
