Blabbermouth reports that Guns N’ Roses have cut their last night’s (November 25) show in Abu Dhabi, UAE short 17 songs in because singer Axl Rose was performing in a “severely ill” condition.
Rose told the crowd:
“So, 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! Axl pulled a damn miracle… the man was beyond ill, and pulled off something I’ve never seen in my 40 years of playing. You all pulled him through. ‘Til next time!”
Guitarist Slash said via Twitter:
“Abu Dhabi, you guys were f*cking great tonight! Axl was severely ill. But you all were hugely supportive. Thanks for that. We’ll see again next time! Cheers!”
