Rockers: Guns N’ Roses delighted fans on Saturday after inviting Dave Grohl to perform some surprisingly raucous music at Glastonbury.
Surprise! The rock group headlined the long-running competition this year, bringing the unique line-up of Axl Rose (61), Slash (57) and Duff McKagan (59), who reunited in 2015, to the Pyramid stage.
Grohl wasn’t the first sight of the competition, having previously toured with The Pretenders on Saturday and doing a secret set with Foo Fighters on Friday.
Formed in 1985, Guns N’ Roses has had massive hits that have stood the test of time, such as Sweet Child o’ Mine and Welcome to the Jungle.
Axel Rose looked fashionable in leather-look pants and a black graphic tee, which he teamed with white trainers.
Showing off his tattooed arm, he wore thick black leather cuff bracelets because he was really energetic.
Meanwhile, guitarist Slash rocked his signature black hat.
The pair were joined on stage by the likes of Duff McKagan and wowed the packed crowd with their heavy rock setlist.
Early in the set, followers continued to complain after Axl appeared to have some mic points.
The singer effectively pointed out to the band halfway through, “I can’t go that far because when I do, I only hear myself and I don’t hear the band.” I’m not trying to harass.

The artist joked about the Foo Fighters’ secret appearance at the contest after learning it was leaked a day earlier, before telling followers: “You guys knew it was us all along, you knew it.” We don’t have good secrets and techniques.
‘Well, it’s good to see your faces again, it’s been a very long time. It’s another lovely day, another lovely audience.
During the performance, Dave’s daughter Violet Grohl made a shocking appearance on stage, while her doting father declared she was his ‘favourite singer in the world’.
“This is a song we wrote for my mom, Violet’s grandma, it’s called Show Me How and it goes like this,” Dave revealed in a heartfelt moment.
He agreed with a huge shout out to the band’s drummer, Josh Freese, saying he was “The man who helped us get here today,” after Taylor Hawkins’ senior season.
Mainman Dave and the rest of the band continued to pay emotional tribute to Taylor, dedicating their Everlong performance to the late artist.
At the end of his sensational set, Dave left pleasantly: “Well, it’s nice to be here for 58 minutes and 30 seconds.”
“We usually play it as our way of saying goodbye, because we never like to say goodbye, because I think if you come back, we’ll be back soon.”
“But I already know we’re coming back for a whole f****** tour, but I want to thank you all for the last 28 years.
“I’d like to dedicate this song to Taylor Hawkins,” he added, referring to the deceased drummer.
“So let’s sing this out loud, we miss Taylor.”
Former Foo Fighters drummer Taylor passed away from sudden cardiac arrest shortly after his fiftieth birthday in March 2022 while on tour with the band.
