Last night, Guns N Roses "officially" kicked off their world tour, after a "surprise" rehearsal show last week in LA. The band took the stage at Las Vegas's new T-Mobile Arena at around 11:30 pm pacific time and rocked the house until about 2:30 am according to our very own Frank Godla who was at the scene. Axl Rose was literally sitting on Dave Grohl's old throne, as the "FF" Foo Fighters logo is visible in photos and videos that have surfaced. Axl revealed he broke his foot just a few hours before the show.
