In 1994, Gene Simmons & Paul Stanley made a surprise appearance at a Kiss convention in Pontiac, MI to reclaim Kiss costumes stolen from more than a decade ago.

In 1993, Guns N’ Roses performed the last concert of their 26 month tour in support of Use Your Illusion I and II in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It would also be their final full concert with original members Slash & Duff McKagan.

In 1992, a co-headlining tour with Guns N’ Roses and Metallica kicked off at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC with Faith No More as the opening act. They originally wanted Nirvana as the opening act, but refused due to Kurt Cobain’s dislike of Axl Rose’s “macho rock persona”.
