Is it the next Axl Rose disaster yet? I can't be bothered with the show thread, Ive already seen there's a few out there who actively want Axl to be bad and would love it if he is tonight. 

Yeah, I can't follow the show thread any more. There are 20 comments about each line Axl sings...

To me it sounds like the average Axl performance...

It's not that bad. Better than he usually is. Not sure what everyone is bitching about.

Melissa's synths everywhere are weird though. I never noticed how much she added before... and not in a good way. :lol:

I never noticed when I saw them but you can really hear her now.

Also Dizzy, especially that weird crap he does on lald, which you can definitely hear at the show. 

:facepalm:

This picture... Fortus in the shadow... :D

 

 

Doing that to Fortus so Izzy can secretly take his place during the show.  Just kidding....unfortunately.

I guess Fortus doesn't really matter if he has no spotlight on him.

lol good morning??? I still haven't gone to bed :rofl-lol:

It started like 2 hours ago, I think.... Yeah, no old GN'R so far....

Show is the same as all the others, so far, Axl sounds like Mickey (as usual) and Slash sounds fucking amazing.

Happy 30th AFD!

I just have one complaint: Why the posters with AFD logo and 30th anniversary plastered in New York if there were not mentions in the concert? I can understand the criticism from that perspective.

Also the final bow....Melissa was between Slash and Axl...hmmm didn't like it.

I think that was part of "doing something" just for the sake of it, so people wouldn't bother them saying they didn't remember at all.

But I feel that Axl hates AFD and hates to be reminded of it. That's why no word about it. Not a single mention of shit. Really lame and just another show that I don't understand why it was so hyped and made look as if it was something special when it wasn't at all.

I had fun watching one crazy woman on the front row, going wild and over exaggerating her movements with another dull woman right next to her who spent the whole night standing still and hating every minute of it :lol:

I don't have this impression reading between the lines of what he's said over the years (it's the Illusions he has expressed some regrets for, and part of it is maybe for the same reasons as the videos, production etc). I think he's proud of it - this album made him what he is, and, after all, he's been living off it and touring these songs for decades (although he's clearly sick of some songs, SCOM mainly).

He hates/doesn't believe in anniversaries though. He did that "Appetite For Democracy" thing in 2012 just for money (as well as the beer commercial), because he had financial problems. And now he probably compromised to do "something" on the date without it being an anniversary show.

Having said that, we don't know what went on behind the scenes about this show. Maybe Axl's little intro to Out Ta Get Me in Lisbon wasn't random and Izzy was approached for playing some songs along with the current lineup, but he (justifiably) declined.

Yet another example of "You can never know what's really 

Shit like this makes me feel amazed (and grateful) we've still got all of our guys with us. They all came so close to either committing suicide as well or nearly killing themselves accidentally. Scary to think about.

 

 

Hear hear. I often think about that too.

The press reviews were very good

https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2017/07/21/guns-n-roses-30th-anniversary-show-ny/498590001/

And Spin has a little recount of an interview made in 1988

http://www.spin.com/2017/07/guns-n-roses-appetite-for-destruction-1988-profile/

“Slash and I almost got arrested in Seattle,” adds Duff. “We went back there for a little vacation, we were going to burn some bar down. Then on the way back to L.A., we were drunker than shit, and we sat next to this kindergarten teacher on the plane. First she told us to calm down. Then she pulled out this book she wrote called From A to Z, and she read it to us, and drew pictures for us. By the end of the flight we were so tranquil, we went right to sleep.”

While I was reading some of those interviews links you posted the other day (about TIL) I got hooked on re-reading more than I was meant to do and in one of them he says he wants to bury AFD (this is pre-UYI) and that he doesn't feel like singing about bars, hookers, drugs and the filthy life anymore. That he wanted to evolve with the songs, the sound and the lyrics because Guns N' Roses was something like a living entity.

Of course he must be proud of all the albums he's made but AFD is the kind of album he said that could not be replicated and didn't want to make again. Unfortunately FOR HIM, that album will always be what catapulted him (and the others) to fame and the one that has become a massive seller and classic album of all times, so what else can he do about it?? In order to keep making money he has to milk it, sing the same sleazy songs forever and save face because there's no other music of his creation that is able to draw massive audiences to his shows :shrugs:

If he loved AFD, he would have done something special for this show, say some words, I dont know.... acknowledge the fuckin' album in some way or another.... but zero.... radio silence..... Bet my ass he will make a huge deal next year when ChinDem turns 10 :rolleyes:

Something positive from last night's show: SLAXL :heart: :P Small stage, Axl couldn't take his hands off Slash, right? Here's the first one. If we get more quality videos, we'll find more I'm sure :ph34r:

Small stage is great for Axl, Slash simply can't escape :rofl-lol:

Anyway, Axl's holding them both :heart:
