Axl Rose and his band Guns N' Roses perform a rare club gig as part of their three-show L.A. Takeover. Although Rose is the only original member playing in the lineup, the band features longtime players Richard Fortus, Tommy Stinson, Bumblefoot and others. Expect to be taken down to the Paradise City more than once during this walk down acid-washed memory lane. Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Fri. Ticket prices vary.
