Guns N' Roses' Ravi Shankar tribute

14th Dec 2012

American rock band Guns N' Roses dedicated a concert on their tour of India to sitar supremo Pandit Ravi Shankar.

The rockers, led by Axl Rose, commemorated the life of the Indian musician and composer with a storming show at the Leisure Valley Grounds in Gurgaon on Wednesday.

Ravi Shankar, who won three Grammy Awards in a glittering career, passed away earlier that day at the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, San Diego, close to his home.

More than 5,000 Guns N' Roses fans packed into the venue to see their idols perform live in India and they were rewarded with a series of hits belted out in customary fashion.

Among the string of hits played by the band on the night were November Rain, Sweet Child O' Mine and Knockin' On Heaven's Door.

And in a special moment for fans, lead singer Rose appeared on stage with a piano which he played to their delight.

He told the audience it was "an honour" to play before the group's "beautiful" fans in India.
