VIDEO: Guns N’ Roses open reunion tour in Las Vegas

Guns N’ Roses officially opened their 2016 reunion tour in Las Vegas on Friday, and video from the show has surfaced.

The first of two concerts this weekend at the new T-Mobile Arena saw the band rip through a 2.5 hour, 23-song set that mixed tunes from the group’s classic era alongside tracks from 2008’s “Chinese Democracy” and some select covers.

Axl Rose performed the show with his left foot in a cast while sitting atop a throne – on loan from head Foo Fighter Dave Grohlafter reportedly breaking his foot during the band’s club show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on April 1.

“Do you like my furniture?” Rose asked the crowd. “A friend brought this.”

Headliners Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan were rounded out with a lineup that included longtime GNR members Richard Fortus on guitar, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Frank Ferrer alongside new addition, keyboardist Melissa Reese.

Guns N’ Roses will follow their Las Vegas dates with a set at Coachella on April 16, play a pair of shows in Mexico City and return to Coachella for an April 23 appearance at the event’s second weekend.

A summer stadium tour of North America will open at Ford Field in Detroit, MI on June 23, with shows set to wrap up in San Diego, CA on August 22.
