The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is located a few miles off that city's famous Strip on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road. However, in honor of the upcoming Guns N' Roses "Appetite for Democracy" residency at one of Sin City's trendiest spots, Paradise Road will be temporarily renamed Paradise City Road.

On Wednesday (Oct. 31) afternoon at 2:30PM Pacific, there will be a ceremony near the hotel's main entrance, where the band will be presented with an official street sign by Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow. Executives from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and AEG Live, the producers of "Appetite for Democracy", will also be on hand.

Changes to reflect Guns N' Roses' arrival in Vegas are being made to the inside of the Hard Rock. The hotel has created commemorative chips, and all of its bars will serve six GNR-themed drinks, including Patience Punch "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Liquid Dream Shot".

"Appetite for Democracy" will run for 12 shows between Oct. 31 and Nov. 24 at the Joint, the hotel's 4,000-seat concert venue. The band are expected to perform songs from throughout their entire career. Tickets start at $45, according to UltimateClassicRock.

    What is this "temporarily renamed" crap. I mean, at least commit to your half-hearted, lame tribute to a band that was stellar but no longer exists. Love Axl, Love Slash, Love Izzy, but Guns n' Roses no longer exists.

    Great thing about playing a run in Vegas, the mob will make sure Axl goes on in time. None of this "come to the stage whenever I feel like it" business.

    Axl has shown what a complete douche bag his by recently endorsing POS in chief Obummer.

    Appetite for Democracy? Really? I think alot of bands have been niched into the greatest bands of all times category, but I gotta be honest. We've made better stuff. Slash made GNR a hit. If I wanted to listen to Axel, I could just listen to Janis Joplin. Their what? 3-4 popular songs have been overplayed on the radio just as bad as ACDC and its time they go the way of the dodo bird. The Greatest Hits cd should be more of an EP than LP.

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do, Bat25.com
