The American band came out on stage after the 45 minutes played by Molotov, the opening band of the concert, who had the audience jumping and singing along with their well-known songs such as “Gimme the Power”, “Marciano” and “Frijolero”, among others.
At 9:50 p.m. the audience was finally able to see Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, who were greeted with screams and applause by the fans in attendance.
