Yup…It’s The “Welcome To The Jungle” Video Set List…And The Mystery Is Finally Solved.

setlist1019I posted this back in October after buying a set list from a woman in LA claiming it was from one of the four Perkins Palace shows back in December of 1987.

Guns N’ Roses, Stop N’ Smell ‘Em! Perkin’s Palace, December 1987.


Read the post if you can….

There was lots of buzz around why “Welcome To The Jungle” was written on the list three times. General consensus was that it had to be from the WTTJ video shoot and that’s why the song appears three times. This bugged the crap out of me. This woman was dead sure that she got it from one of the Palace shows. But as we all know that was way back then, and our memories aren’t what they used to be. Especially for those of us that survived the 80’s.

So I sought out a few experts to help me figure this out. Matt Sorum, Slash and Marc Canter. Not too shabby heh?

I sent it along to Matt, who passed it along to Slash.

Here’s what he said….

Next stop, Marc Canter author of “Reckless Road” and GNR Historian. Here’s his response.

So what we know is that this IS in fact the set list from the video shoot. We have a pretty good idea of where the video was shot. Slash is currently on tour and probably gave this a pretty quick look on his phone. But him verifying that it is in fact his writing and from the WTTJ video shoot is good enough for me. I spent hours online looking for information as to where this video was filmed and got answers that were from The Whiskey to an old warehouse.

But nothing definitive. I’m no Columbo, but I’m pretty satisfied with what I know now.

Whew….glad that’s over.

Some more info I found online. No shortage of confusion as to where this video was filmed. Read away.
