Guns 'N Roses started their UK/Ireland tour last night at The O2 in Dublin and played a set that was roughly as long (three hours) as the amazing set the played at Webster Hall in New York earlier this year. But the band's been through a lot in public lately, some of which was hard for fans, so, according to NME, Axl Rose really had to thank the crowd.

He said, on stage, "Thanks for coming out, thanks for putting up with my lame ass and thanks for not throwing s**t," which is both a very rock 'n roll/fantastically humble thing to say. We salute Axl for his honesty.

The band played the theme song to the Pink Panther, covers of "Another Brick in the Wall" and "Baba O'Riley," did six costume changes, and set off some fireworks. They played 21 songs, including classics like "Paradise City," and we think the show was probably a ton of fun.

Anyway, shouts out to Axl for being real with the fans. Let us know what you think of the Guns 'N Roses reunion tour in the comments!
