Skrillex left many fans scratching their heads when he announced in June that he would be opening for rock band Guns N’ Roses during their tour stop in Houston. It seemed like an odd pairing, as most Guns N’ Roses fans probably don’t view anything without a guitar as music while the average Skrillex fan was probably left wondering “Who’s Guns N’ Roses?” Despite the polarizing nature of the lineup, the show indeed went on and now some video has surfaced to give us a glimpse of the performance.
Throughout his set, Skrillex takes the opportunity to mash up his love for metal with a number of EDM bangers, mixing in plenty of rock artists like Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, System Of A Down and more alongside his characteristic dubstep workouts.
Speaking with Rolling Stone, Skrillex revealed that when his set began “people were sitting down and were like, ‘What the fuck?” But by the end of it, the crowd seems to have warmed up to his mix of hard hitting dance music and metal.
