Which concert is the best one in your opinion? People like different eras of the band and they like different songs, so it would be interesting to see what people like.

of course Prague 2006, because I was there and absolutely loved it! it was a steamroller with FOUR guitars (including Izzy) ;)

talking about other shows... really hard to say. there's probably one show for every song and it's not really possible to pick the "best" one. rather it's a patchwork of great performances from various shows that makes the whole picture complete.

Appetite line-up

Ritz 87’ and 88’

Of course it's the three shows that I attended, everybody knows that, lol.          1. Guns/Aerosmith. July 22nd, 1988 in         Cape Girardeau, Mo. at  the world              famous Show Me Center.                        2. Skid Row/Guns  July 2nd, 1991 in St.         Louis.  The infamous riot show.             3. Body Count/Metallica/Guns Sept.              17th, 1992 in Kansas City at                         Arrowhead stadium. I know it's kind         of heirasy to admit but I felt that               Metallica was the better band that           night.

My favorite show that I personally attended was the Austin, TX show on February 23, 1993.

Opening of the night Skin N' Bones tour.

25 years later, thinking about this gig sends chills down my spine.

The Saskatoon pro-shot refreshed memories I had forgotten from the Austin '93 gig.

The 2 Las Vegas 2016 show were fantastic as well!

The electricity generated by the anticipation on the first night (April 8th) was so thick, you could have used it to light up the entire Las Vegas strip...

  • Hannover 2017 - It's just diffrent between visit a real concert or watch a video. The Heavy Rain, Angus Young, Axl speech alot, just great.. First time i saw Axl and Slash together.. Front Of Stage.. AWESOME
  • Tokyo '92 - first live material i watched from Guns N' Roses.. After recording few music videos on my VHS recorder, i recorded this full show on VHS and i watched this over and over.. It's just nostalgia.. still a great concert
  • Ritz '88 - I found this show on YouTube back in 2007. Internet was new to me and i discoverd YouTube and found clips from the Ritz Show. Thanks to SlashedDuff i had a great time to watch this show in 2007 with my headphones.. You know, Tokyo '92 is known for his quality and the Ritz Show is 100% Guns N' Roses, way better than Tokyo.. and that was the feeling i felt in 2007. 100% Guns N' Roses
  • Marquee '87 and other great bootlegs - thanks to the new internet, i searched for more good bootlegs on the web. I found Marquee. I was amazed of his voice. Perfect and the closest thing we can hear Axl's voice just like his voice on Appetite For Destruction, before his voice changed to more and sometimes painfull rasp
  • Saskatoon '93 - almost 10 years of collecting bootlegs and 600GB full of bootlegs and shit. We see a unseen full pro shot video of a Skin N' Bones show. I watched the gig with the headphones like back in the day i saw Ritz in 2007. Great feeling.

 

You see, the feeling is a big point. I never forget the Wall of Drums on the Intro of It's So Easy live at the Ritz after watching the dull Tokyo '92 show. Ritz '88 is absoluty my favourite GN'R Show

AFD- Fox late show

UYI- tough one, probably Paris 

CD era- Hammerstein ballroom

NITL- Philly 16’

Overall- Hammerstein ballroom. Been to 20 shows, old and new, for me nothing compares to the excitement of the first Hammerstein show in 06’ not even night one in Vegas. The crazy thing is all the excitement and it was just Axl. Too bad the reunion didn’t happen then. The world was ready for it, they could’ve still created new music and been relevant then. I’ve always thought of GNR at that time like Aerosmith in the mid 90’s. Classic band reaching their  commercial peak 20 years after their debut. In 06’, the gunners were still in their 40’s, just like Aerosmith was during get a grip. Oh my, what could’ve been!

It depends on what we are talking about, really.

If it's live recordings,  some my favorites are:

Marquee 1987, Paris 1992, Saskatoon 1993, Boston 2002, LA 2006, Burcharest 2010.

Of all the shows I went to, Toronto 2016 is my favorite because it was the first time i saw Axl, Slash and Duff on the same stage.

Hamilton 2010 for Axl's vocal ability.

Does a dvd or audio bootleg exist from that show?

 

A lot of it is on youtube but I don't know if there's a full bootleg of it, other than a poor quality iphone stream.

The problem with this question is that the answers will be tend to be based on which concerts happened to be recorded with good audio and pro-shot rather than which were actually the best.

Ritz 88 is a case in point, most people will say that was a stand out show but the band thought it wasn't one of their best, what with having monitor problems etc on the night.
