I got myself wishing Axl to shut up on the outro and let Melissa sing.

Yeah, and I was wishing she would do the high harmony on the choruses where Axl sang low. Seemed like a missed opportunity.

I'm not sure what to make of this Rick situation. There must surely be more to it? It draws a lot of attention that could more easily be ignored. 

I'm fairly sure you can't have someone arrested for attending a concert they have purchased a ticket for. You can deny them access, but threaten them with arrest? The only way I can see that would be possible is if some sort of restraining order has been issued that would be breached.

Any way to download that live stream video?

 

I think @Gibsonfender2323took care of that for everyone.

This is TB we're talkin about, "professionalism" is their surname.

Frank played Locomotive very well, I'm impressive

I have the impression that Duff has told him how to play it right, judging from the actual live performance.

Let me just say...after hearing Locomotive last night, I am seriously considering being “sick” on Friday, if you know what I mean. I literally just told myself after this past weekend that I am never riding the rail again for a festival, and I was content seeing GNR only one of the two weekends at ACL, but dammit after this, I am considering changing my mind.

Same here, Duff seems to be directing Frank throughout the song

Frank said " so we're gonna play Garden of Eden and Don't damn me next, right" and Axl yelled "Fack, i don't want to retire tonight"

I think he sounded great, despite obviously having himself too low in his monitor mix from the start. Notice how right at the beginning he signals to the sound guy to turn him up in his mix and then tinkers with his amp on the belt. The studio version has layered vocals and some sound effects on the vocals, so I think Axl gave it a really solid rendition. Try singing that shit (or YCBM or Coma for that matter), I don't know what the guy was thinking when he wrote these song - fantastic music, but you basically need reanimation after performing it. I think he was great last night, hope they keep it in the set.

Totally agree. It was never an easy tune to sing live when he was much younger. Axl did a pretty decent job as far as I'm concerned. He threw the mic up in the air at the end so yeah he was having some mic/mix tech problems from the looks of it

Either way, I'm super happy they played it!! 😃👍🏻
 

Thanks Axl 🍻

He is doing a really, really good job on this one. And it will keep better show after show.

See, Axl? It wasn't that hard to make your hardcore fanbase happy.

Yes it was, dude almost died out of breath :lol:

Axl sounded real good till he started running out of breath.  Good song for his voice these days.  It's a hard song to sing tho.

It was awful in spots, as I said.  Not overall, but in some spots.....its awful.   That is realist.  He needs to figure out how he wants to sing the song I think.  He goes from singing falsetto to semi spoken word to trying it with rasp.    It's a work in progress for him I imagine. 

Time has nothing to do with how good or bad the vox are.    If you want to see he did awesome considering he hasn't performed the song in 22 years, I'd agree.  But, the fact remains, in spots the vox were awful. 

It's one of my favorite songs. I've never thought they would play Locomotive again. I wouldn't dare to bet they will play it again in the next up coming show. Sure in the early 90s sounded better. But I'd rather have a bad live version of Locomotive than some cover song in the set list that I don't care about.

He got a little winded during the second or third verse, I wouldn't call that really out of breath. At any rate, he did a fantastic job with it

My favorite GNR track was played? Dare I listen? I imagine Axl probably butchered it.

I suppose bands have the same right to "refuse service" as stores, restaurants and other businesses.

However, if Rick was kicked out for no reason other than being a persona non grata, I think they should at least refund him for his ticket.

I thought "Locomotive" was awesome! Biting my tongue over here.

With that song on the setlist maybe I'll see them live again at Lollapalooza 2020.

(only two days away until they confirm the band on the Argetina, Chile and Brazil version of the festival in 2020 \0/)

its a gamble, might not play it's cause its a festival and Axl appears pissed thorough out it.
