From LAist.com's article about important places in LA:

The Troubadour

The band has played in every setting imaginable, from a UCLA frat party during their nascent days (which earned them $30 and free beer), to a Coachella headlining spot to kick off their reunion jaunt in 2016. They were familiar faces in Hollywood, too, of course, working gigs at the Whisky and the Roxy. But it's perhaps the Troubadour that's dearest to the band's heart.

The venue was the birthplace of the true GnR, afterall; on June 6, 1985, the venue saw the first performance by the "classic" roster. Guitarist Slash and drummer Steve Adler had just joined, completing the Appetite For Destruction lineup that also included Rose, bassist Duff McKagan, and guitarist Izzy Stradlin (Buckethead would be a far ways off). As the show was still a couple years removed from "Welcome To the Jungle" and "Paradise City," covers of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Heartbreak Hotel" were turned out as crowd pleasers.

As a testament to the venue's importance in GnR lore, the Troubadour was chosen as the site of the band's (partial) rebirth in 2016. On April Fool's Day, Rose, Slash, and McKagan took the stage together for the first time in 23 years (Adler would later join the band for select songs during the reunion tour, while Stradlin sat out completely). The show was a success on most accounts, aside from a scene in which Rose slipped and broke a bone in his foot. "This is what can happen when you do something you haven't done in nearly over 23 years," Rose would later say on Twitter. The Coachella performances, which happened a couple weeks later, saw an injured Rose singing from a motorized throne supplied by Dave Grohl (yes there's a lot to unpack there).
