Guns N’ Roses took the stage last night at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the first of two shows. Lead singer Axl Rose even performed the show with a broken bone in his foot, after an injury he sustained last week at the band’s show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. Yet that didn’t stop Rose, who had screws and a plate put in his foot to mend the fracture, who donned a cast for the performance as well as a ‘throne’ similar to the one that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl used last year after breking his leg.

At one point in the show, Axl told the audience that Grohl gave him the use of his throne, saying: “I wanna thank Dave Grohl for this; it was very nice of him. I’ve got nothing to do with this.”

Rose will apparently have to limit the amount of weight he puts on the front part of his foot for about a month.

The lineup for the band was the same as it was for the shpw at the Troubadour, with Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan being joined by keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer. Also appearing with them was second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
