BARF CITY … Axl Rose vomits for 5 hours, then plays shortened set with Guns N’ Roses in Abu Dhabi



Axl Rose vomits for 5 hours, then plays shortened set with Guns N’ Roses in Abu Dhabi



Blabbermouth — GUNS N’ ROSES played an abbreviated in the United Arab Emirates Sunday night (November 25) after frontman Axl Rose became “severely ill.”

Rose and his bandmates performed almost 20 songs in Abu Dhabi before cutting the show short.

The singer addressed his medical condition at one point during the concert, telling the crowd (see video below): “They’ve got me on IVs and a bunch of injections, ’cause I got sick today, I’ve been throwing up for about the last five hours. So, instead of canceling, I’m gonna do the best show we can for you.”

Bassist Duff McKagan later tweeted: “Thank you Abu Dhabi! @axlrose pulled a damn miracle…the man was beyond ill, and pulled off something I’ve never seen in my 40 yrs of playing. You all pulled him thru. Til next time!”

Guitarist Slash wrote on his Twitter account: “Abu Dhabi, you guys were fucking great tonight! Axl was severely ill. But you all were hugely supportive. Thanks for that. We’ll see again next time! Cheers!”

Not everybody was satisfied with Axl‘s explanation, with one fan responding to McKagan‘s tweet: “Shame you only played about 10 songs, disgrace.”

Another fan wrote: “Shouldve stayed in his sick bed! How many hits!? and 1 1/2 hours to play Sweet Child & then Eric Clapton!! Glad I didn’t pay otherwise I’d be asking for a refund!! @gunsnroses.”
