Cape Town – American rock band Guns N' Roses had to cut their set - in Abu Dhabi - short on Sunday, 25 November due to front man Axl Rose being "severely ill." 

In footage of the show, filmed by a fan, the lead singer can be heard saying, "They've got me on IVs and a bunch of injections, because I got sick today, I've been throwing up for about the last five hours.

"So, instead of cancelling, I'm going to do the best show we can for you." 

According to music website Loudwire, the band performed nearly 20 songs before ending the show.
