  1. Came on at 7:45, fished a little after 11
  2. Agreed completely. I totally forgot about the Lineman cover. THAT brought the crowd down way more than TIL or any other CD song. And yes, fuck NJ Transit. What a total disaster that they didn't have more trains going out of the City knowing there was a huge concert going on.
  3. That's definitely the case. And to be fair, this IS marketed as a reunion tour, which is going to bring in a larger group of older fans who haven't listened to the band since '92. So, when you have a reunion tour and the band is playing songs that two-thirds of them had nothing to do with, it's hard for people to find a reason to care who haven't followed the band since the split.
  4. The show was absolutely phenomenal, blew last year at Met Life completely out of the water. I was skeptical given how on and off Axl's voice is lately, but holy shit was he on last night. They all were. Axl, in particular, seemed to be way more interactive with the crowd and looked like he was genuinely having fun. He even came out during the encore and said Duff just told a funny joke backstage he wanted to share with us in the spirit of Halloween: every time you yawn, a ghost sticks his dick in your mouth. LOL My only complaint is the CD songs. The fans just are not feeling them. TIL noticeably brought the vibe down big time and, despite me being psyched for Madagascar, few people really got into it. I had to leave halfway through Patience because I had work in the morning and after the 11:06 train, there was no train back to Jersey until 1:22 a.m. NJ Transit is the worst. Overall, this was by far the best and most fun GNR show I've ever been to. If you have any doubts about seeing them on this tour because of what you're seeing and hearing in YouTube videos, don't. It was an awesome show in an awesome environment. I'd go back again to see them tonight if I didn't have to work late.
  5. Fuck...so they're really gonna go on at 7:30 sharp??
  6. Still no official word on who's opening? Trying to decide what time to get there.
  7. Steven burned his bridges after airing all the dirty laundry after his last appearance on the tour, unfortunately, otherwise I'm almost positive he would've been there last night. Izzy, I never expected. The fact that Axl didn't even once reference the 30th anniversary of Appetite last night was very disappointing, but also very telling as far as where he sees the band is right now. I, of course, held out hope that at midnight they would have done something special, but it was just the same old business as usual.

    Blackhole Sun was a really cool surprise. I'd love it if they kept it as a regular and got rid of one of the other tribute songs in the regular setlist instead. Axl killed it. I actually didn't expect them to cover any of Chris's stuff and only thought Axl would just make a brief mention of him at some point throughout the show and that would be it. But, again, that was a really cool surprise. It'd also be really cool if they ever did a cover of "Promise" from Slash's album with Axl on vocals.
  9. Was never a big fan of DJ, but I didn't hate the guy. I can't hate him because he was into pushing his solo projects because, let's face it, it's not like Axl was actually going to ever release anything with the previous lineup or have them be anything more than a cover band playing material they had nothing to do with. The main thing I took from this is just how checked out Axl really is from the band. How the fuck you schedule a rehearsal with a guitarist, don't show up to see him rehearse, yet somehow he gets hired speaks volumes about this band.

    This idea that they're just touring now and will go into the studio to record after the tour is over is a pipedream. How long have we been hanging onto this hope over the years as the band's lineup has undergone change after change because guys get sick of just playing old stuff over and over again? The touring isn't going to end. When they've gone on hiatus in the past, there's been absolutely zero movement on Axl's part to record anything new. I have no reason to believe anything has changed.

    I disagree. Axl wants GNR to be his vision or nothing at all. He's proven time and time and time again that he would rather watch the band flame out under his own terms than see Guns succeed as a unit. He has absolutely no reason to release any new music; he's proven for the past decade that he would rather tour and collect millions, and now he's making even more money off this reunion tour than he was with the previous lineup. He has no reason to release anything new at this point.
  12. I say this with all sincerity: I would be absolutely fine with ANY direction at this point, simply because it would mean new music.
  13. Steven Adler on Eddie Trunk's Show Today

    None of this really surprises me. We already knew that these guys aren't a real band anymore. Axl doesn't hang out with any of them, doesn't rehearse, has his own dressing room and wants nothing to do with anyone in the band aside from the 2 1/2 hours they're on stage together. This is all 100% about money and always was, and it has been clear from the very beginning that this reunion was being done entirely on Axl's terms. That's not to say Duff and Slash aren't in this strictly for the cash, either, because they are. Why else would they have come back and agreed to do a bunch of CD songs every night that they had nothing to do with? I never believed Axl for a second when he said Duff and Slash approached him about wanting to play tracks from CD. It seems obvious that the setlist they play every show was agreed to beforehand and Axl decided he'd bring back Coma and Jive as a half-assed way to make it look like a compromise in exchange for playing songs off CD every night. It is what it is at this point, and I accepted this reunion for what it was a long time ago. There isn't going to ever be a new album because Axl has zero interest in releasing anything new with anybody. If he releases CD 2 and it bombs (and it would), he looks like a fool. If he releases a straight new album of new material with Duff and Slash and it kills (and it would), everyone will want to give credit to the entire band, which Axl doesn't want. So, the easiest solution is to do nothing except tour and continue to rake in tons of money.
