VIDEO: Guns N’ Roses open Not In This Lifetime tour in Detroit

Guns N’ Roses opened their “Not In This Lifetime” North American tour at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on Thursday and video from the show has surfaced.

The 2-month trek sees the reunited trio of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan perform with a lineup that includes guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese, and drummer Frank Ferrer.

The Detroit appearance marks the return of Rose to GNR after he stepped in to assist AC/DC with a 13-date spring tour of Europe in place of Brian Johnson that wrapped up in Dusseldorf, Germany on June 15.

The singer is now fully back on his feet after wearing a walking cast for most of the AC/DC dates after breaking his left foot during GNR’s April 1 club gig at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.

The 24-song set opened with the band’s 1987 classic “It’s So Easy” and, for the most part, remained similar to their spring shows in Las Vegas, Mexico City and at Coachella.

The group mixed classics with covers of tracks by The Stooges, Wings, Bob Dylan and The Who.

Seattle rockers Alice In Chains opened the show with a 40-minute set; they’ll be on hand to warm-up the first five dates of the tour.

Guns N’ Roses will next perform at FedEx Field in Washington, DC on June 26.
