AXL ROSE powered through a GUNS N’ ROSES show in Abu Dhabi on Sunday despite being seriously ill. When he first hit the stage, he told the crowd he’d been throwing up for the last five hours, but he was going to do the best he could.
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!

He ended up lasting through 20 of the 28 songs they were planning to do before calling it quits. Bassist DUFF MCKAGAN later Tweeted that Axl was, quote, “beyond ill, and pulled off something I’ve never seen in my 40 years of playing.”
