Throwback Concert: Guns N’ Roses at New Haven Coliseum 1993

Throwback Concert: Guns N’ Roses at New Haven Coliseum 1993

Happy Birthday to Matt Sorum! The former Guns N’ Roses drummer turns 60 on November 19th.

Today we look back at when Guns N’ Roses made their first and only appearance ever at New Haven Coliseum: 1993 on their Use Your Illusion Tour. Joining them on the tour was The Brian May Band.

Interesting side note: The New Haven Coliseum, specifically Section 14, was nicknamed “The Jungle” during the New Haven Nighthawks run to the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup Finals in 1989. Guns N’ Roses “Welcome To The Jungle” became a staple at all Nighthawk home games. So it was rather fitting that GNR opened with that song at their Coliseum show in 1993!
