____________________________________________________________________

Notes:
This is the first Guns N' Roses concert featuring the Appetite for Destruction lineup, this is also the first GN'R show we know the setlist to. Slash replaced Tracii who disn't show up for rehearsals while Steven Adler replaced Rob Gardner who had been fired. The lineup changes were abrupt and Tracii Guns and Rob Gardner are still in the flyer for this show.

Quotes:
We played our first show at the Troubadour and it was sold-out. It was like we were rock stars, but just in Hollywood [The Days of Wine and Roses, Classic Rock, April 2005]
On Thursday, June 6, we played our first live show with the Appetite for Destruction lineup. The bill at the Troubadour included Fineline, Mistreater, and, at the very bottom, Guns N' Roses. Slash's high school friend Marc Canter, - he turned out to be part of the family that ran Canter's Deli - came and shot pictures. He made prints f each of us the next day so we'd have head shots to put up in the places we played on our tour [the Hell Tour]. That was Friday [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 70]
Talking about the AFD lineup coming together: We had a show together, I think it was at the Troubadour, [...] the audience comprised of a bunch of our friends[Ultimate Classic Rock, September 2014]
