GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

Recommended Posts

I agree 100% @Natty Is is completely inexcusable...I don't get what happened since they did soundcheck and it seemed to go ok.

But whoever was in charge of the sound that day and ear monitors, etc. in Berlin needs to be fired. Simple as that.

I assumed that kind of thing doesn't happen with multimillionaire companies, it only happens in third world countries like mine :P

It is common here that they hire cheap people to save a little money on something and thats how then things go so wrong.

No idea how it is within GN'R but maybe they are cheap bastards and hire cheap people :shrugs: prioritazing good money on hotels and band accomodations, when it should be the other way around.

I have no idea. I am angry in one minute and sad the other minute. 

I never witnessed a concert where you couldn t hear the singer. I go to small venues as well as to club shows or festivals. never seen such a thing. even gnr shows I saw - in good and in bad - you could hear Axl sing. 

I ve no idea whats going on. let s see what comes next.

too greedy to hire good tech people would be a bummer.

the technician or however you call them should get fired as well as the idiot who chose him/them.

I would also get fired if I made a desasterous job or damaged the image of the company I work for. that s life. Do it well or don t do it!!

My River Plate shows from 2016 had some sound issues as well. No idea who's fault that was but during 'Better' they sounded awful and I think it was the whole band playing bad. There was a delay coming from both sides of the stage, it was weird. But it was just that song, as I recall.

that one or two songs dont work out well or there are sound issues during a short phase is ok , can happen. but not a 2.5 hours show that goes wrong..

I posted this in the show thread and honestly the more of it I watch, the sadder it makes me. I've posted on here several times that I much preferred the AXL/DC show I went to over the NITL show. And I'm not even a huge fan of AC/DC.  I was confused by that at first, but videos like this make it clear- they are just a more professional band, no matter who the lead singer is. They sound good on that stage. The production is better. The sound is better. They have chemistry. They are putting on a fucking rock show for that audience. They clearly didn't take the easiest, cheapest path. Anyway, different band, same stadium, same acoustics, a few years back:

Can you explain more about this Kevin guy? What he said?

Axl is always running around like crazy in paradise city, later saying good night etc. This time, Kevin said he moved back,  behind the guys, and u could read from his face that he was p** d off. Kevin was very close to the stage and saw that clearly.

AC/DC have about three times the amount of front of stage speakers that GnR do. They’re so loud it rattled my teeth on Thunderstruck. 

When I saw Axl with them they kept his vocals high in the mix at all times. They knew how to get the best out of his voice.

We know the stadium wasn't the problem. But if Axl keeps sucking (his own words) Angus is gonna hire Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford or somebody else. This is not the 2016 Axl

It's not even about Axl to a large extent. The more I look at it the sadder that show seemed. They clearly couldn't fill the stadium. Their sound engineers are sub-par apparently, their graphics suck, and overall the band is completely sterile.  Slash plays guitar well, but they put on a terrible show.

They should. They totally should add a couple of stacks more of stage speakers and some more on the floor. I don’t know why they don’t ramp up the volume, I wish they did.

They perfomed in Europe last year. There is no new album to promote. There is no Izzy and no Adler. The tickets are very expensive. There is no way they can fill stadiums unless they play a festival. What is the fuckin point of this tour?

They should not have tried to fill a 75,000 stadium like the Berlin one, 40,000 max and that even may be pushing it.

well not 100% sure, @Andy14 hears "so mean right so mean" which I think could be it. Hard to tell though.

Any native speaker here with really good ears? :D
