Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach joined GUNS N’ ROSES on stage Saturday night (April 9) at the second of two shows at Las Vegas’s new T-Mobile Arena to perform the GN’R classic “My Michelle”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
As was the case Friday night, GUNS N’ ROSES singer Axl Rose played the concert with a broken bone in his foot, an injury he reportedly sustained last week when he slipped onstage while singing “Mr. Brownstone” at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California. Rose has since undergone an operation to insert a plate and screws in his foot after fracturing his fifth metatarsal.
Rose wore cast at the two Vegas shows, and had a special stage setup that allowed him to perform. In fact, Axl told the audience that Dave Grohl loaned him the very same rock ‘n’ roll throne the FOO FIGHTERS frontman used after suffering a broken leg on tour last year.
Only Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan from GN’R‘s “Appetite For Destruction”-era lineup took part in the Las Vegas shows. They were joined by keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer. Also appearing with them was second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
GUNS N’ ROSES‘ setlist for April 9 concert at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada:
01. It’s So Easy
02. Mr. Brownstone
03. Chinese Democracy
04. Welcome To The Jungle

Rose will apparently have to limit the amount of weight he puts on the front part of his foot for about four weeks.
The band will play two gigs in Mexico City and two Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival dates, before launching a stadium trek this summer.
GUNS N’ ROSES is getting a reported $8 million for its two appearances at Coachella.
