GUNS N' ROSES Plays First Official Reunion Concert At Las Vegas's T-Mobile Arena: Video, Photos

GUNS N’ ROSES has just kicked off the first of two shows at Las Vegas’s new T-Mobile Arena and a fan in attendance is streaming the concert via Ustream (see below).

GUNS N’ ROSES singer Axl Rose is performing tonight’s show with a broken bone in his foot, an injury he reportedly sustained last week when he slipped onstage while singing “Mr. Brownstone” at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California. Rose has since undergone an operation to insert a plate and screws in his foot after breaking his fifth metatarsal.

Rose is wearing a cast at the Vegas shows, and has a special stage setup — similar to the custom throne Dave Grohl used last year after breaking a leg — that allows him to perform. In fact, Axl told the audience that Grohl gave him the use of his throne while he is unable to walk. Rose said before GN’R launched into “Rocket Queen”: “I wanna thank Dave Grohl for this; it was very nice of him. I’ve got nothing to do with this.”

Setlist so far:

01. It’s So Easy
02. Mr. Brownstone
03. Chinese Democracy
04. Welcome To The Jungle
05. Double Talkin’ Jive
06. Estranged
07. Live And Let Die (Paul McCartney & WINGS cover)
08. Rocket Queen
09. You Could Be Mine
10. New Rose (THE DAMNED cover)
11. This I Love

The GN’R frontman will apparently have to limit the amount of weight he puts on the front part of his foot for about four weeks.

The band will play two gigs in Mexico City in addition to the Vegas and Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival dates, before launching a stadium trek this summer.

GUNS N’ ROSES is getting a reported $8 million for its two appearances at Coachella.

Only Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan from GN’R‘s “Appetite For Destruction”-era lineup took part in the Troubadour gig. They were joined by keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer. Also appearing with them was second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
