Guns N’ Roses is about to rock Houston in a very big way.
The reunited band performs Friday at NRG Stadium as part of the Not in This Lifetime Tour. But we’ve got a sneak preview right now.
A crew of 250, including 125 locals, was setting things up Thursday inside the stadium. That includes a massive stage, seating and lights.
Production manager Dale “Opie” Skjerseth promises “a lot of pyro. More than normal. The guys wanted more.”
It’s his second tour with the band. This trek includes 20 trucks and 125,000 pounds of equipment.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Friday. EDM superstar Skrillex kicks things off at 8 p.m. GNR will take the stage after 9:30 p.m.
Prepare to be there late. The show lasts two hours and 45 minutes.
“They enjoy playing with each other.” Skjerseth says. “That’s the reasons they came back together.”

ARLINGTON
For its first performance with the original lineup in North Texas in more than 20 years, Guns N’ Roses is not thinking small.

Workers clambered all around the enormous stage, situated in AT&T Stadium’s western end zone Tuesday, putting the finishing touches on a three-day process that will culminate with the Axl Rose-led rock band’s “Not in This Lifetime” tour stop at the venue Wednesday.

During a brief press conference, just a few yards from workers testing video panels and adjusting confetti cannons, tour production manager Dale “Opie” Skjerseth told reporters “everything’s been running smooth and the band’s excited.”

“It’s a fantastic show,” Skjerseth said, “with video, pyrotechnics], the band, the music everybody thrived on — the show will be fantastic: two hours and 45 minutes of rock and roll.”

The band, which features Rose reunited with founding guitarists Slash and Duff McKagan as well as veteran keyboard player Dizzy Reed, had a hand in designing the stage, which requires 16 trucks to transport between venues (after the Arlington stop, the Guns N’ Roses tour heads to San Francisco’s AT&T Park on Aug. 9).

The production elements are conveyed on 20 trucks, with about 25 local workers complementing the 25 crew members tasked with pulling everything together.
