Nightrain the Guns N Roses Experience

October 23 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
District Center for the Arts, 15 Court Street
Taunton, MA 02780 United States
$25

NIGHTRAIN'S Tribute show to Guns n Roses has been taking the US by storm for years running. Performances have ranged from The House Of Blues, MTVs Famous Club LaVela, The FC Dallas Stadium, to this years Carolina Rebellion, sharing the bill with Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, & Buckcherry to name a few. Nightrain continues to make their stamp in today's ever growing Tribute Market.

The accurate vocals and hypnotic swaying of Axl both capture the audience’s attention from the first beat down to the last note. Slash’s classic riffs and perfect showmanship (and let’s not forget the top hat) will make everyone do a double take. However, Axl and Slash are only part of the show. The tight rhythm of Izzy, Duff, and Steven are the glue that keeps this true concert tribute together. Izzy’s laid back style…a 6’ blonde Duff…the energy of Steven “popcorn” Adler complete this visually and musically accurate line-up. This band’s vibrant stage presence and accuracy to everything about Guns N' Roses leaves the entire crowd pleased.Purchase Tickets

Welcome to

The District Center For The Arts

The former Taunton District Court building was originally built in 1826 and you can feel the history when you walk by. The many court cases over the years saw American culture evolve from post-revolutionary life to the way we do things today.

This project is super important for many reasons. It maintains one of the sweetest sections in the downtown of the city of Taunton. The project will create a new art center that will provide local artists and musicians a state of the art facility for Bristol County and beyond.

We look forward to the fun and excitement The District Center For The Arts will bring to the businesses and residents of the city of Taunton.
