Gurgaon: On their maiden trip to India, American rock band Guns N' Roses on Wednesday took their fans on a roller coaster ride by belting out their old hits like 'Sweet Child of Mine' and 'November Rain'. Notoriously famous for being late for their performances across the world, the band surprisingly started the show on time.
Performing in front of 5000-odd people, the band also played their songs 'Paradise City', 'One in a Million', 'Welcome to Jungle' and 'Think About You'. The band's lead vocalist Axl Rose introduced his mates - Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Chris Pitman, Richard Fortus, Ron Thal, Frank Ferrer and DJ Ashba - as he took the microphone.
"Hello Delhi, it is a wonderful evening I am happy to be here," he said. Delhi witnessed its first hard core rock performance after a long time after Metallica's gig was cancelled. With head-banging a normal site at rock shows, fans couldn't stop shouting and dancing at the three-hour non stop gig.
"I am a die hard fan of the band and had booked the passes a month back. I am so happy they have come to India. They are amazing," said a college student. Guns N' Roses was formed in 1985 and had Rose and guitarist Slash as its most famous faces. However, Slash parted with the band because of an alleged feud with Rose.
Rose is now the only original member remaining from the band. The band has already performed in Bangalore and Mumbai before this.
