The show must go on! Axl Rose had to undergo surgery after breaking his foot, even though Guns N’ Roses is due to start their first tour in 23 years on April. 8. Read on for how he’s going to be making it through his performances without being mobile.
What a trooper! Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose, 54, has always been known for his amazing stage moves, but he’s going to be totally limited in his mobility as the band kicks off its first tour in over two decades April 8 in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. He broke his foot and had to have surgery, and now he’s going to be singing from a red throne as he can’t be on his feet!
His doctor revealed that Axl broke fifth metatarsal in his left foot and had surgery to put the bone pieces back together and realign them, where a plate and screws were put in to hold the bones in place while they heal. That means he’s now in a cast and definitely won’t be able to be mobile at the bands upcoming tour stops, including their headlining gig at the Coachella Music Festival.
But something like a broken foot isn’t going to keep this rocker down. Axl will have a white and red embroidered throne with two fake guitars on both sides, where he’ll sit like a king and sing from a seated position. While we’re sure his fans were totally looking forward to his rock-star moves, they’ll have to just settle for an immobile Axl as he shows off his amazing vocals skills for next month to come. Luckily, the band has a two month break after their Coachella dates for Axl to heal up and get back to his stage ready action.

Axl broke his foot and needed surgery after the band played an intimate show together at the Troubadour club in West Hollywood April 1, He was kicking off his rock star moves during the song “Mr. Brownstone” when he slammed his foot too hard into the ground. “This is what can happen when you do something you haven’t done in nearly over 23 years,” he revealed on his Twitter the day of the band’s tour kickoff, with a video with his doctor explaining what happened.
HollywoodLifers, do you think the band should have cancelled their gigs to let Axl heal? Would you want to go to a concert where the lead singer sat through the whole show?
