    • Reminder to all video takers at the shows - shoot the video screen!
      Thanks for opening this topic. I've been wanting to say the same. Hope it's not a huge favor to ask to shoot the screen AND hold your phone horizontal for better view. I truly appreciate though even if that's not the case, since it's not an easy task to be holding something at the same position for hours on end, and trying hard not to jump and dance to the songs for the sake of us watching here,  so thanks in advance for all the periscopers! Love you guys!!
    • Lenny Kravitz talks GNR on Seth Myers
      He probably wasn't thrilled about the show being televised live and was probably not sleeping for days at a time. Now they're spacing shows out to rest up (which probably doesn't apply to most of the crew).

      I totally understand that but as I said, I think answering to those kind of comments only make things worse. If you're enjoying, don't let other people drag you down. Absolutely agree with this. Having Coma, Estranged and DTJ at every gig is unbelievable! Hopefully those songs are gonna stay forever. Also, Better and Chinese Democracy are two of the highlights for me. The only problem for me is that I love this new version of the songs so much that I can't listen to the album version of 'em anymore, lol. I hope I'll be as lucky as you to catch Sorry when I get to see them.
    • Axl supposedly parties with models, actors after MetLife show
      Since he reads this forum, I'm gonna give a shout out to him "HEY AXL, STOP IT ALREADY WITH THE EYELINER. YOU LOOK LIKE A DEER LOST IN A CITY". He looks great these days when he adopts the less is more style.    Well, who cares anyway. What's important, he sounds great most of the time. And improving every.single.time.

      Don't really know how to start this, but here I go. What an amazing show. From start to finish the band was a fucking locomotive! Some pit stops along the way (I'll get to that shortly) but all in all they kept us going. For me, it was a very spiritual experience. I discovered the band after hearing Nightrain on the radio and have been hooked since. Forever wishing for a reunion and it finally happened, I knew I couldn't miss this show. The atmosphere in the dome was crazy. I called Ticketmaster in the morning and the guy told me the show was 90% sold out, and it was probably at 95% by the time the show started. I went alone but once I got into my seat and Duff's bass line echoed the stadium, it felt like a huge family in our section. Everyone was singing along, dancing, the whole sha'bang. There were some duds in the setlist that sucked the life out of the arena (Better, THE SEEKER) but staples like LALD,YCBM, & Nighttrain pumped life back into us. Paradise was a thriller and great way to end the show. Some notes I'd like to add: -Axl: Holy shit. Not only was his singing up to par and on point in many spots, his screams literally peeled back skin. You could feel them in every way and added to the presence of the band. People can rant all they want about how he's aged/his weight/etc., but he's still the most electric frontman in Rock. Hands down. -Slash: Not much to say that hasn't been said. The dude is a musical robot. Always improving and his solo part was one to remember. It's a completely different vibe when you experience it live.  THE SEEKER: This has been talked about time and time again but witnessing it live takes on a whole new meaning. Don't get me wrong, I like the song. I feel like if they're going to play it, hell, put it in the regular set. In the encore though? TOTAL buzzkill and it KILLS the momentum leading into Paradise. The outtro's to both Don't Cry/Patience get the crowd so hype. Everyone was singing along to Patience and it was just a magnetic vibe going on. Once The Seeker started though, people sat down immediately and went on to browsing their phones. It's pathetic imo to not put another great song from their catalog into that slot. It's an encore after all, give the fans what THEY want. -The Setlist/Band live: On a brighter note, this band is solid. Tight knit in every way, and you can feel it. Duff & Frank have this symbiosis thing going on that just resonates through everything. You could literally feel Duff's bass as if it was a second heartbeat. And finally seeing him live, it makes sense as to why they call Frank "thunderchucker." My ears will have to pay for that. He played great by the way. Richard was in the shadows most of the time (Kinda like how Izzy used to be) but when it was his time to shine, that's exactly what he did. Nothing but praise for him. Which brings me to my point. Alot of people can say what they want: Axl doesn't sound good in the periscope links, Mickey this mickey that, Frank's fill's suck, Slash isn't playing the TIL solo like it is on the album, so on and so forth. The negativity that I've seen on this board seems to come from people that haven't even witnessed the band live. TRUST ME. Once you do everything changes. I appreciate them alot more and you realize that there's alot more to a performance than dissecting the good and bad about the performers. They put on a complete show, and considering how old they are and what they've been through, it's astonishing that they're pulling it off every night. Again, it's something that you have to experience to understand. You can't "feel" anything through a periscope link, although we'd like to think we can.  I give the show a 9/10. Something I'll never forget and hope to experience again. One thing's for sure though. I have NO doubt in my mind that this lineup could put out a killer album or two. Not in this lifetime? We're waiting on it! -Taj
