Guns N' Skid Row-ses

Axl RoseThe Guns N' Roses European tour ended without Axl Rose. Unable to finish the band's final show at London's Wembley Arena, Skid Row's Sebastian Bach filled in on "Night Train" and "Paradise City." Claiming that he was diagnosed with low blood pressure and low blood sugar on the morning of the show, Rose asserted he was advised to sit this one out altogether; but he didn't want to let the G N'R fans down. Perhaps Rose just needed a nap: the evening before the band played a late-night acoustic set which ended at around 4:00 a.m.

On the overall trip overseas, Axl Rose commented, "We have had an amazing tour and it has been fantastic for the band and I to experience this. I approached this last show with equal parts determination, obligation, responsibility and insanity. It was an amazing night. I want to thank everyone in Europe and the UK for inspiring us and for giving us the opportunity to play for them. We are now looking forward to the US in September."
