Comedian Andrew Dice Clay was a surprise guest opening for rock band Guns ‘N Roses at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ Wednesday night (Aug. 15).
Dice’s set–which included his classic nursery rhymes routine–was teased by Chrissie Hynde during The Pretenders rocking hour long set that included hits “My City Was Gone,” “Middle of the Road” and “Brass in Pocket.”
The appearance was a reunion with Dice and the band –who played just over three hours at MetLife Stadium–since he first opened for them 30 years ago at the Rose Bowl.
Dice, dressed in his trademark leather jacket and shades, entertained the crowd with a raunchy routine that poked fun at the bedroom antics of the new generation and what he referred to as the “Pandemical.”
Guns N’ Roses reunited in 2016 for the “Not in This Lifetime” tour and played for the New York/New Jersey crowd with a full blown set that included hits “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “November Rain,” “You Could Be Mine,” and a beautiful cover of Glen Campbell’s “Wichita Lineman” to balance the show.
“I missed you all,” Rose told the crowd.
