Watch Guns N' Roses Perform Velvet Revolver's "Slither" Live in Berlin

Last night, Guns N' Roses kicked off their European tour with a show at Olympiastadion in Berlin. During the show, the band surprised and thrilled the assembled masses with a cover of Velvet Revolver's "Slither," the first time the band has ever performed the song live. You can watch fan-filmed footage of the cover above.

Velvet Revolver featured then-former Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, and released two albums before disbanding in 2008 following the departure of frontman Scott Weiland.

"Slither" was the band's biggest hit, and even won the band a Grammy—for Best Hard Rock Performance—in 2004.

Guns N' Roses are just getting started with their latest run of Not in This Lifetime tour dates. You can check out their full itinerary below.
