Guns N’ Roses had to cut their set short in the United Arab Emirates over the weekend since vocalist Axl Rose was “severely ill” preceding the show.

Rose told the audience during the concert that his current medical condition was not up to par.

“They’ve got me on IVs and a bunch of injections, ’cause I got sick today, I’ve been throwing up for about the last five hours,” he said. “So, instead of canceling, I’m gonna do the best show we can for you.”

The group played almost 20 songs, Blabbermouth reports, before ending the show. While some concertgoers were unhappy with the short set, others noted that the band played more songs than a normal band would if they weren’t sick. Fans wished him well and thanked the band for still performing.

Guns N’ Roses are due next on their “Not In This Lifetime Tour” in Johannesburg, South Africa this Thursday. Then, the group will head back to close-up the trek in Hawaii. The gig in Honolulu will be their first show in the state during their career.
