According to Indiatvnews.com, GUNS N' ROSES dedicated their Delhi performance to sitar maestro PANDIT RAVI SHANKAR, who passed away Wednesday. The band's lead singer Axl Rose talked about the sitar legend during the concert last night and said, "We dedicate this show to Pandit Ravi Shankar, who passed away today."
Three-time Grammy winner Ravi Shankar, 92, underwent a heart-valve replacement surgery at the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California where he breathed his last.
Notorious for being late for their performances across the world, Guns N' Roses surprisingly started their show on time.
During their three hour non-stop performance the band belted out old hits like 'Sweet Child O' Mine', 'November Rain', 'Paradise City', 'One In a Million', 'Welcome To The Jungle' and 'Think About You'.
Performing in front of 5,000-odd people, Rose introduced his mates - Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Chris Pitman, Richard Fortus, Ron Thal, Frank Ferrer and DJ Ashba - as he took the microphone.
"Hello Delhi, it is a wonderful evening I am happy to be here," he said.
