The 1991 Guns N' Roses concert was a massive outdoor concert by rock band Guns N' Roses at the Birmingham Race Course on June 30, 1991. Skid Row opened the general admission show staged by New Era Productions, for which tickets cost $22.50.

The crowd has been estimated at around 40,000, but organizers and concessionaires were unprepared for the turnout. The race track infield was quickly trampled into thick ankle-deep mud. The headlining band appeared late and the show was interrupted numerous times for technical difficulties and, later, due to mud being thrown onto the stage. Axl Rose threatened to end the show early, but returned after a short break, and the band played three encores.
