  1. L' Arc 2010

    He's like a fat neutered puppy compared to what he was from 2002-2010, 06-10 being his most recent peak vocal years.
  2. Is it negativity or reality at this point? You know what you're getting. I think going in with false hopes of a different set, new music, or Axl sounding anything better than mickey shit is setting yourself up for disappointment.
  3. Got tickets to MetLife last minute for about 20 bucks last time on Stubhub. If I choose to go - which is 99% unlikely, that's the route to take.
  4. "The new album"... LOL does anyone in their right mind believe there is going to be a new album at this point? They don't have to. They've proven that. Slash and Duff can still do their solo stuff, while still touring on this cash cow.
  5. It's to the point where I'm embarrassed for some performers - Axl included.
  6. I've come to grips with it. It's a nostalgia act. Kudos to the guys for milking it this long. I'm never gonna fault an artist for taking advantage of dumb people. They've milked this cash cow excessively long with no end in sight. Remarkable business management.
  7. People who say they "prefer" the mickey mouse falsetto are literally only saying that because that's all we have left. A fat man pushing 60 with a wig that Donald Trump could laugh at, squeaking out all these songs. It's an embarrassment and needs to be laid to rest. I remember when Guns N' Roses were "cool." There was a dangerous element to the band. It's a complete and utter joke now. Axl is a parody of himself. I know people aren't gonna be pleased with some of those words, but it's tough love time. You can't keep feeding into a mediocre product, because if you keep paying for this garbage, that's all you're gonna get. It's been what, going on four years since this sham, cash grab reunion? And what have we gotten; a painful to listen to version of Slither? Wichita Lineman - which is probably one of the songs Axl does better these days, but what Guns fan actually gives a crap about this song? A cringeworthy tribute version of Black Hole Sun? We've gotten as close to nothing new(officially at least) since the band got back together. There's no new single. No new album. I'd stop holding my breath or following the shows. You want the set for the next show? Look at the set for the last show.
  8. The ballads are cringeworthy. It sounds like Herbert the Pervert from family guy with that shrill, nasaly falsetto. A few songs are passable, but the entire GNR catalog was designed to be sung by a guy in his 20's with power to his voice. Not singling Axl out either - it is just as sad watching Motley Crue, or Bon Jovi, and most bands from that era try to perform songs that are just grossly out of their wheelhouse anymore.
  9. Don't mean to be a killjoy, but I can't fathom how anyone can listen to this and think it is anything short of abysmal. I accept that it is probably the best he can do at this point - turning 58 this month. But, they continue to sell out and make money, so who cares? When people are buying your garbage product, what motivation do you have to improve upon it if people are continuing to pour out money for it. I was disappointed in '16, and can honestly say I haven't given GNR a dime since then.
  10. Show Opener and Closer

    PC is almost too perfect of a closer, so I agree with the placement there. Opener should be rotational.
  11. Setlist for 2020

    Ginger Revolver, the fat bowlcutted version of Velvet Revolver in a mickey mouse voice you never wanted to hear, but SURPRISE!
  12. Setlist for 2020

    Wichita Lineman Black Hole Sun The Seeker Silkworms with special guest Mother Goose Pitman 15 minute Melissa Reese synth solo Scraped 15 Minute long version of KOHD Whole Lotta Rosie Slither My World If The World Tribute cover dedicated to the next artist who dies Encore: Don't Cry Alternate Lyrics Eye on You Wichita Lineman(Reprise)
  13. With vintage GNR he created a brand that was unsustainable over time. His vocals have relied on heavy screaming and power, and that's a lot easier to do in your 20s, 30s and even early 40s than it is in your 50s. The guy is pushing 60, and there's no "rasp" coming back. He is singing everything in a thin falsetto, because that's way out of his range. It is what it is at this point. It's disappointing that a singer you like, and even once idolized basically sounds like a joke now, but let me try going to the karaoke bar when I turn 55 and try singing Sweet Child or something, it'll probably be just as dreadful.
  14. Lol, if it were with Elton maybe. I don't know. I'm sick of covers. I'm sick of Appetite. Sick of this life, not that you care.... Give me some new goddamn music. Tired of the old bullshit.
  15. Benny instead of another cover would be great, but you're already at god knows how many covers. I doubt we ever hear Hard School.
  16. Rasp is dead? So what you're trying to say is that in talking about it, we're beating a DEAD HORSE? 🤔
  17. I'd honestly rather hear shit show new songs that are a bit sloppy than Sweet Child for the billionth time.
  18. Mickey actually doesn't work too bad for DH, definitely not his his worst effort on this current set. Slash played the solo as if he hasn't played it in 30 years though lol.
  19. 10/18/19 - Guadalajara, MX - Estadio Jalisco

    Axl has been in a bad mood for 30 years lol
  20. Loco. I never enjoyed Coma as much as most GNR fans seem to. It was cool to hear it on the NITL tour at first, but it has been beaten into the ground. With NR and a 75 minute long version of KOHD, the long songs are a bit of a lull during the show. Nobody really seemed to give a crap about Coma at the shows I went to.
  21. 10/11/19 - Austin, TX - Austin City Limits

    All that nitl money and my boy can't buy some vitamin C
