Guns N' Roses are set to release a 3D concert film entitled Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live from the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas.

The movie will be released on July 1 via Blu-ray and DVD. It was filmed on November 21, 2012 whilst the band were playing the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, reports Exclaim, touring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album 'Appetite for Destruction' as well as four years since the release of 'Chinese Democracy'. It is the band's first official concert movie since the 1992 'Use Your Illusion' concert film, recorded at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.

Scroll down for a full tracklisting for the film, which sees the band tackling covers of Bob Dylan's 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door', Neil Young's 'Don't Let It Bring You Down', The Who's 'The Seeker', Wings' 'Live and Let Die' and Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick In The Wall Part 2' amongst their own material.

Earlier this month Guns N' Roses denied Axl Rose is retiring from music, even though they are currently in residency at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, where the DVD was shot. US entertainment site Radar Online reported the band were planning to call it a day after the final show in their current residency on June 7.

However, another source, this time from within the band's camp, told Loudwire that the retirement talk is "bullshit" and that the band having clear calendars is nothing new when the band is on a break, giving them time to pursue other projects.

Bassist Tommy Stinson played some reunion dates with The Replacements earlier this year, and will potentially rejoin them later this year. Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed will also have the opportunity to work with The Dead Daisies and guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal often works on solo material.

The band have recently talked about recording a new album. After the Golden God Awards show in April this year, rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba told reporters G N'R were planning for a new album to be out within a year.

'Chinese Democracy'
