Legendary rockers Guns N’ Roses played an explosive set at FNB Stadium on Thursday that included 29 songs and lasted over three hours.

Local favourites Wonderboom did a stellar job to warm up the crowd until GNR kicked off their set with the fiery opening track It's So Easy.

The intensity of their performance did not let up until the closing anthem classic Paradise City.

The rockers had fans concerned after Axl Rose fell "severely ill" during his performance in the UAE earlier this week. As he started the show in Abu Dhabi, the musician said he had been vomiting but was determined to continue.

Here's snaps of the rockers performing on African soil for the first time.
