Axl Rose’s ‘Paradise City’ Jacket Goes for $5,350
One of just three copies of Axl Rose’s ‘Paradise City’-era white leather jacket, originally owned by the designer of the band’s tour merchandise, has sold for a whopping $5,350 on eBay.
The front of the jacket features an embroidered design featuring Guns N’ Roses‘ original lineup as they appeared on their 1987 debut album, ‘Appetite for Destruction.’ The back includes the band’s familiar logo.
Rose wore the same style of jacket in the group’s video for ‘Paradise City,’ which features performance clips from a Guns N’ Roses tour stop at Giants Stadium in New Jersey with Aerosmith. He also wore the same jacket during a 1992 tribute concert for Queen‘s Freddie Mercury at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Rose’s jacket was the first one made. Another copy of the jacket is on display at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. The one that was recently sold was given to the guy who designed and manufactured the group’s tour merchandise.
