Guns N'Roses played the MEN Arena in Manchester last night (May 29), but arrived onstage so late, many fans had already left.
Despite having a stage time of 10pm, Axl Rose and co finally started playing at 11.10. The band then performed a 33-song, three hour show, winding up after 2.15am.
An eyewitness told Radio X: "The crowd started leaving from around 12am … In the end I would guess there was around 6,000 people left in the arena - a lot of people did indeed leave.
The band's Twitter said this morning: "A tip of the hat to the good folk at the M.E.N Arena. To say Manchester rocks is an understatement! London calling!"
The band play the first of two nights at The O2 tomorrow night (May 31).
