    Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan reunited on stage in Los Angeles last night, marking the first performance featuring Guns N’ Roses’ classic lineup in 23 years.

    GNR performed a 17-song set composed of greatest hits (“Welcome to the Jungle”, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “Paradise City”), covers (Wings’ “Live and Let Die”, Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, The Who’s “The Seeker), and even songs from the band’s 2008 album, Chinese Democracy (“Chinese Democracy”, “Better”).

    Axl, Slash, and Duff were joined on stage by longtime keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, and new member Melissa Reese, who replaced Chris Pittman as the band’s second keyboardist. Reese marks the first-ever female member of Guns N’ Roses.
