Guns N’ Roses are currently on the latest leg of their mammoth Not In This Lifetime tour, which got under way in Charlotte on September 25.

And on Monday evening, the band took to the stage at the INRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas, and proceeded to rip through a 22-song set – and surprised fans by playing their Use Your Illusion II track Locomotive for the first time in 27 years.

The last time the band performed the track live was back on February 20, 1992.

Along with a selection of classic songs including Welcome To The Jungle, Rocket Queen, November Rain and Sweet Child O’ Mine, GNR also covered MisfitsAttitude and, since they were in Wichita, they also gave their take on Jimmy Webb and Glen Campbell’s 1968 track Wichita Lineman.

Axl, Slash, Duff McKagan and co’s next performance will be at Austin City Limits this coming Friday, before they hit the Exit 111 Festival in Tennessee on October 15.
