Quotes:
Duff: We played a celebratory gig at the Roxy [after being signed to Geffen], or rather two - an early show and a late show - on March 28, 1986. To be honest, the shows had been booked prior to our signing with Geffen. They were supposed to be label showcases. Events overtook our plan, however, so we took out full-page ads in the local music papers to announce the gigs: Geffen recording artists Guns N' Roses, live at the Roxy. [...]. We all had fresh tattoos at the Roxy shows, and people wanted to touch them. We felt like we ran the city that night [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 114].

The two shows on March 28 at the Roxy was mentioned in the band's fourth newsletter:

"So you’re down and out and think you’ve reached the end of the road? Finally, Friday, March 28th, ‘Guns N’ Roses’ does a double-header at the Roxy and like cold beer thrown in your face, the light at the end of the road at last shines! With the hardest rock band out of England, ‘Carrera’ opening the first show at 8:00 and L.A.’s own ‘Lions & Ghosts’ opening the second show at 10:00, it is sure to be the event of 1986. Our new stage show alone, will make you cum in your pants!" [Guns N' Roses Newsletter, March 1986].

I found this page randomly on tumblr and I don't know which book or magazine its from (it isn't from Marc Canter's, is it?)
It has a description of the show and transcript of the talk between songs. Apparently there are more pages before:

https://i.servimg.com/u/f97/20/05/33/00/1986_012.jpg

When’s the last time you’ve been to the Whisky to see a rock band? Has it been a long fucking time? Is it about tucking time for the Whisky-A-Go-Go. Next Saturday night, we're playing the Whisky. We've got Faster Pussycat opening the show, we've got our good friends and bitchin’ band Shanghai that a lot of you haven't seen. Check 'em out. They'll kick your ass. Then we'll wanna shut that fucking place down and I need your help.

SLASH: The first and last time it's going to be open.

AXL: You wanna have a good time? This song is called "Paradise City."

AXL: This song I wanna dedicate to Vicky Hamilton, for putting up with me being a really weird fuck. I am just a pain in the ass. This song is called "Mama Kin."

AXL: We've got some funk rock for you. It’s about a badass woman called the Rocket Queen.


Slash used his B.C. Rich Mockingbird for "Rocket Queen" having broken a string on his Les Paul during "Mama Kin." This was the last time he played the Mockingbird before pawning it to raise quick cash. To his regret, he never retrieved that guitar - the first he ever owned - from the pawnshop.

DUFF: I wanna thank you guys all for coming down to the Roxy tonight. Are you guys having a good time? Thank you.

SLASH: C’mon, you can make more noise than that. Tear the fucking house down.

AXL: This is a song that we left out of the set earlier. This song is called "Reckless Life."


AXL (in a high pitch voice): Goodnight ladies and gentlemen.

SLASH: See you next weekend.

Axl said good night and exited. Pam Manning, a stripper friend of the band, came out on stage. Despite her best efforts - she wriggled cheerfully in a very small outfit - the audience remained subdued.

PAMELA MANNING: Hey you guys, you want some more? Let me hear it, c'mon. Wake up.

STEVEN ADLER: Lets hear the fucking noise. C'mon.

DUFF:Yo,yo Roxy, c’mon.


Axl returned to the stage and surveying the blase audience.

AXL: I think you guys have been eating Quaaludes. This song lets you do whatever the fuck you want. This song is called 'Anything Goes."

DUFF: Alright you mother fuckers, lets go!


During "Anything Goes," Slash tripped while running back and forth on stage, somehow executing a perfect backward somersault without missing a single note.

AXL: I wanna take a minute to introduce the members of the band here. The man over there on guitar, is Mr. Izzy Stradlin. The man here on the bass is Mr. Duff McKagan. The man on the drums. Mr. Steven Adler. And the man sitting on his fucking ass, falling all over himself...

SLASH: Drunk dumb fuck.

AXL: ...is Slash. And he has been waiting for this all night.

SLASH: That's it. Goodnight. We’ve got one more.


During "Heartbreak Hotel" Slash’s top hat migrated to the top of Axl’s head.

AXL: Thank you. The Whisky on April 5th. Ok, lets close the fucking place down.

SLASH: This was a benefit for Belleview.

AXL: And fuck BAM Magazine.

That looks very much like the layout in Canter's book. I will have to check it later today.
