Contrary to popular belief, not everything goes in Las Vegas.
The artwork promoting Guns N’ Roses' residency and performances at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Vegas have raised quite a stir and as a result, posters have started to be pulled.
And the visual that is calling for such action is one that the group has used before.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, the image, which depicts a robot that appears to have sexually assaulted a woman, was originally meant to be the cover of their debut 1987 album, Appetite for Destruction. However, due to its graphic nature, music retailers had refused to stock it and the cover art was eventually moved to the inside of the package.
The Hard Rock released the statement: "Hard Rock Hotel & Casino regrets that the Guns N' Roses advertising for their current shows has offended any member of the community. The resort has decided to further modify the art and began the process of changing the materials (Friday). Hard Rock International also released a statement, "Hard Rock International does not condone the advertisement or any depictions of sexual violence,"
The Appetite for Democracy residency stretches through November 24th and hopefully the group can put this controversy behind them and give Vegas some good ol’ fashioned Hard Rock.
