I just got a home a little while ago, and thought I'd add a couple of comments about the show.

First, Axl seemed to be back on form for tonight's show - following Sunday's lackluster and shortened gig. His voice seemed pretty solid throughout the show, and he added back many of the songs that he dropped when he was having throat troubles on Sunday - such as IRS, Madagascar and Chinese Democracy.

He also seemed more relaxed and addressed the crowd several times: He mentioned that he had talked to Izzy and that Izzy wished him well with the show. He also said that he spoke to Lars for the first time in 13 years, but didn't elaborate further. He also repeated that Better is a "Robin song."

During the song "Patience," he coughed the word "bullshit" in the middle of the song - the way he used to do during the Illusions tour. *This brought back memories.*

Axl also thanked the "diehard" fans for hanging in there and supporting him, which is very cool - and long overdue!

At one point, Axl yelled to someone in the crowd to "cut that shit out." But I couldn't see who he was addressing or why.

Robin was awesome for a third consecutive show - and stage-divered into the crowd once. I think he may have been injured though because Axl was asking him if he was OK. Robin replied "This is what I live for." ... Robin rocks!

Bumblefoot is moving around the stage more, which is cool. But he really really needs to change those boring and simple guitar solos.

Baz showed up again to sing My Michelle. And - as happened with the previous two shows -his presence totally fired up the crowd, creating this tremendous energy in the room. It's hard to explain how he totally lights up the crowd unless you're there.

Axl saved three songs for the encore: Patience, Chinese Democracy and Paradise City. And the show - like all the others - ended in a shower of confetti.

Thanks for the review Maddy. Quality stuff as usual. I misread the way you put your first point. I thought it read 'At first, Axl seemed to be...', so I interpreted that as meaning his performance fell weak half way through the show. But it didin't. I really think this is gonna happen. :)

Very cool review Madison!

I thought Axl had said more about Izzy. So, it still remains unclear if he'll be onstage as a guest for the last NY show. :question:

IZZY, SLASH, AXL, DUFF, STEVEN & MATT ARE IN THE HOF AS GUNS N'ROSES. SUCK ON THAT !

Very well written reviews, thanks madison!

I am so hyper-jealous that I can't witness these shows, alone reading these reviews make me all enthusiastic.

"This is what I live for..." awesome Robin, plain and simple awesome.
