Line-up:
Axl Rose (vocals), Izzy Stradlin (rhythm guitarist), Slash (lead guitarist), Duff McKagan (bass), Dizzy Reed (keyboards) and Matt Sorum (drums).

Notes:
The last show with Izzy as a band member. He would return to play occasional shows later, stepping in for Gilby or joining future lineups.

Quotes:
Izzy didn't walk away and force the cancellation of the Wembley show. He stayed and played one last gig to draw the curtains on this leg of the tour - the last show before the release of the albums we were ostensibly touring. Axl arrived on time. We played spectacularly well, as fierce and inspired and together as ever before. If not for the additional people and gear onstage, it could have been mistaken for one of our club shows [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 194]
Izzy's final show was before seventy-two thousand people at Wembley Stadium, in London, a venue we sold out faster than any artist in history. But it's more worth mentioning that as far as I remember, after Izzy informed us that he was leaving, not one of the remaining European shows started late [Slash's autobiography, "Slash", 2007, p. 344-345]

I remember watching parts of this show broadcasted live on MTV Music Awards. Good times.
