Appetite for Democracy 3D is a live concert film released in Cinemas, Broadcast and DVD by Guns N' Roses, filmed live at The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas on November 21, 2012, on the tenth night of their residency, as part of the Appetite for Democracy tour in celebration of twenty-five years of Appetite for Destruction and four years of Chinese Democracy. This is the first live DVD release of Guns N' Roses since Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II in 1992. The show was filmed entirely in 3D and was produced by Barry Summers from Rock Fuel Media. The cover art features part of the original banned cover art from Appetite For Destruction. The album was officially revealed on May 29, 2014.[1]

The DVD sold 4,800 copies in the United States its first week.[2] The DVD debuted #1 on the Billboard music video sales chart, selling 6,400 copies its first two weeks.[3] It also won Best 3D Music Entertainment Feature at the 2015 International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society Awards.[4]

Videos of the band performing "Chinese Democracy", "November Rain", "Sweet Child O' Mine", "You Could Be Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle" were released to the band's Vevo channel as promotional material.

Reception[edit]

Antimusic gave the DVD 5 out of 5 stars, stating "the combination of excellent musicianship, mesmerizing rock 'n' roll stage presence and superior film work make this show practically jump right into your lap".[5] In a negative review, This Is Not A Scene stated "Guns N' Roses were once dubbed ‘the most dangerous band in the world’; change the word ‘dangerous’ for ‘hilarious’ or ’embarrassing’ and that pretty much sums up what they represent on this package. A total train wreck."[6] Metal.de's Alex Klug gave the release 7 out of 10,[7]
