  1. Awww really? That's very cool! I think it's a lovely song. Lots of emotion to it. I should also add There Was a Time to the songs I've grown to like more. Can't really connect with the lyrics, but I enjoy the sound of it.
  2. When CD was released, I only liked two of the songs - This I Love and Madagascar. The other songs I simply couldn't connect with. With CD songs being played on this tour, I still like those two tracks. I'm probably in the minority, though, in that I prefer the original guitar solo on TIL to Slash's solos. Still don't like the title track. Puts a bit of a downer on the opening of the set but it might be best to get it over and done with. I find Better to be a pretty irritating song, but I have to admit it's somewhat catchy and when Axl got all fierce with it it did sound better. The only song that's grown on me is Sorry. I can add that to the CD songs I like now. So, on my end, there's a slight increase in appreciation, I suppose. One of my friends is a brand-new Guns fan. She blames me. As she's getting to know the material, it's AfD that's really drawing her in. Some of the Illusions. CD doesn't even register. Of the other people I know who like GN'R, it's all about AfD and the Illusions as well. For some reason, CD doesn't seem to strike that special note...
  3. I haven't been to a single concert on this tour. Would love it, but I can't afford it, as a student and carer. In 2012 I paid just over £100 for two front-row seats in the first block by the stage. And they played in Manchester, which is less than an hour away from where I live. I can't do nosebleeds - sitting up high makes me feel dizzy. So the prices they asked for lower tier seats + travel to London and a hotel on top of that, nopes, not going to happen. I was lucky enough to catch them in '93, so I have those memories. But I feel bad for people in a similar position as I am in, who really want to see Axl, Slash and Duff together and who simply can't afford it.
  4. Watched this with a friend of mine. She's 21, only knew a handful of songs (Sweet Child, Paradise City etc), had never seen a full Guns concert before. It turned out to not be the best show to properly introduce her to the band. We both thought that Axl seemed unwell. There was definitely something off. Still though, she enjoyed the show, and the encore was great, and she came away a budding Slash fan. She said she'd definitely watch them again and would like to attend a concert in person. So, whilst someone new to the band picked up on Axl not being at his best, they're still good enough to make an impression. I personally feel like the songs mostly sung in Axl's lower register work well for him at the moment. Sorry, Patience, Don't Cry, those were all great. YCBM, Yesterdays etc, not so much. But I still sat up until past 8 in the morning watching them, and GN'R is the only band in the world I'd do that for.

    https://www.pscp.tv/BittyTED/1gqxvOmQYaqKB That one's working for me. "Sorry" at the moment.

    Well, I shared my view before the show, about how it would have been great to have something extra special for the anniversary. But I did very much enjoy what we got. I thought it was a good show, and I am grateful to @Gibbo and GN'R SudAmerica for streaming it. Thank you. Definitely bed time now. Nearly 7 am. Night all!

    That was an awesome "Sorry!"

    It's a shame I have to play it at a relatively quiet level considering it's 05:14 in the morning here. Don't think the neighbours would appreciate me going full volume.

    Finally caught up... awesome show so far. I'm really enjoying it. Just great to listen to a good quality recording.

    Public Enemy celebrated their 30th anniversary by dropping a free album earlier this month - they thanked their fans and stated that this one was on them. They've also, over the last year or so, done free concerts. Guns N' Roses, on the other hand, choose to celebrate the 30th anniversary of AfD with an exclusive show hardly any fan can get tickets for, and that you can only listen to through a subscriber service that's only available in the US. I love the band, I honestly do, but I cannot help questioning their decisions at times. I know they don't owe us a single thing. I know they're a brand. I know they want to make money. But sometimes, when you hit a landmark achievement, a little kindness goes a long way. It's a way of saying, "We made it this far, together, and that's really cool." Like, it would have been great if this concert were streamed globally, freely available to anyone who wanted to experience it with them. That would have been massive and I am sure that lots of people would have appreciated it. Oh well, it is what it is. Hope it's a good concert, and I hope that they and everyone there have fun. It still is a big achievement that Guns N' Roses is still going, that they're still rocking, and it looks like they'll keep on going for the foreseeable future. So I cannot complain too much. Just... I think of how amazing things could be and yeah...
  11. Thanks so much for the links! Nearly forgot there was a concert tonight. Arrived just in time for my favourite song, it seems. Coma!
  12. All we need is just a little... periscope...
  13. Argh... I'm supposed to be working on my final paper for university (deadline on Tuesday), but I keep on peeking here. This looks like a concert that's not to be missed!
  14. I'll admit it. With all the build-up to this, I held a little bit of hope in my heart for a new single. I figured a new album would be too much, as they've been busy touring, but one song... Guess I still operate under the delusion that despite tours being where the money is, musicians will want to make music. Oh well...
