I have to give honerable mention to Detroit in 2002. I was at that show and Axl threw the mic up in the air during patience and just walked off stage and then the lights came on. It was just a really lackluster show the whole time, and that ending was just horriable. This show is one of the main reasons why I never truelly embraced that version of gnr.


What venue did they play at?

RIR 2011 without a doubt, for me personally the biggest let down by this band in a long time :thumbsdown:

Obviously I was not there though

Was Detroit 2002 the only New-GNR show that didn't close with Paradise City?

Why is Rock in Rio III (2001) on that list? Seriously, it is in my opinion one of the most amazing Guns N' Roses concerts, old and new.


I agree... people shit on axl's voice but I thought it sounded great... way better than the majority of garggled with bleach show in the UYI tour

It was the reading festival 2008, i was so, so fucked off. Really wanted to see KOL , i just walked off and caught train back to Slough after 30 mins of this. £89 down the drain.

No, one of the early Canadian 2010 shows closed with Nightrain, andPC closed the main set (Honestly don't remember which one off hand).

Old guns had far more horrible shows (often due to Slash's sloppy playing and Matt's boring drumming in the fast songs), but I suppose this section is for newGuns, so carry on.


Fuck dude, aren't you the guy who gets pissed when anyone brings up classic-era members in any thread relating to Nu-Guns?

Remember this the next time you bitch about this kind of bullshit.

I think this question has to be taken with a lot of publicity taken into account.

In 2002, there was an aura about Axl and his new band. The comeback if you might say. And for his poor vocal performance and strange looking lineup, I think it for me was the worst gig (not technically, but publicity wise).

Although the 2011 concert is up there (Axl was awful, and a few fuck ups by the band too) it doesn't reach the height of the VMA's purely because 10 years on, less people give a shit.

It's weird but if you ignore 2002 vocals/band (as great as they were, the general public weren't going to get behind that band tbf) and think if you had Axl/2006 how different things could have been. Especially considering after that you got 2010 vocals. I mean, nobody would ever consider newgnr>>>oldgnr but people might have stood up and taken notice

2006 easily the best year for me as a guns n' roses fan. His voice was amazing most of the time.
