The original Guns N' Roses have played a gig together and here's the footage

We genuinely thought there was more chance of the devil deciding it was just a bit too fiery down there and setting the thermostat to "chill".

On Friday night, the classic Guns N' Roses line-up (well, three fifths of it) played a gig together for the first time in 23 years at the 500-capacity Troubadour in Los Angeles, with tickets costing a mere $10.

After two decades of near constant feuding between Slash and Axl, the world was stunned in January when a host of rumours were confirmed to be true: that the pair had buried the hatchet and were preparing to reunite to play shows at the Coachella festival, later this month.

So, what did we learn from the comeback gig?
