The Guns N’ Roses reunion roared into life with a two-and-a-half hour set at Las Vegas’ newest venue, the T-Mobile Arena. The band – particularly lead singer, Axl Rose, and lead guitarist, Slash, delivered what turned out to be a persuasive, often exhilarating reunion show.

While the earlier Troubadour show may have been the first time that Rose, Slash and original bassist Duff McKagan have played together since 1993, this gig was the first official reunion show, and will pave the way for a stop at Coachella and a 21-city tour.

Any worry that the band and its current configuration – which also includes guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist/percussionist Dizzy Reed and keyboardist Melissa Reese, would flounder under the pressure of expectation set was unfounded.
