GnR's classic lineup dished out some of the band's iconic hits, similar to what they did at their Not In This Lifetime tour. Before ending their set, the rock legends paid tribute to late NBA star Kobe Bryant with a special and heartfelt performance of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door".

Frontman Axl Rose said: "The other night coming home from rehearsal I was like, ‘Is it just me or is that really weird?’” he said. “It was this fog bank, like a thunder cloud over the trees. It was really white with a slight pink and this light coming off the ground."

"It was really weird. It looks formidable. By morning, apparently, it was much worse. That’s what [Kobe Bryant’s] helicopter flew through. It was pretty scary. I want to dedicate this to Kobe and his daughter and everyone on the flight and everyone in the families and everyone impacted by this terrible event."
