10/07/19 - Wichita, KS - INTRUST Bank Arena **Locomotive played for the first time since 1992**

Recommended Posts

Axl knew good and well playing Locomotive would garner media attention. They did it for themselves and the fans in attendance obviously, but they definitely knew it would get the diehards, casuals, and media talking. Wonder if there could be more to that.

I was at that same show, Dutch crowds are really stiff. You almost feel out of place and awkward singing along at shows like that :lol:

Nothing worse than someone singing along... seriously, I paid good money to hear the band, not to hear someone singing out of tune next to me.

You mean to distract from banning Rick? Am I following your insinuation right?

it's sad to see crowd filming WTTJ instead of jumping and singing along like the old days, however at least we can watch every show from home

I actually didn’t think of that, but of course it’s always possible. 

I meant more so something along the lines of an official release of some kind. They play this deep cut for the first time in 27 years, it drums up interest in the media to get people talking, so they follow it up with an announcement saying “oh by the way, we’re releasing an EP soon”. 

Of course, there is a better chance of it snowing here in Texas in the middle of August than that actually happening. Just a theory though.

I have to laugh at the people complaining about the woman screaming during stream. 

Not to be all "old timer" about it, but SO much is taken for granted these days. 

To be clear, here's how we would have heard this back in the early 90s:

Someone would have had to have snuck in recording equipment, then got away with recording the entire show. Then it would have been sold to bootleg companies. Then you would have to accidentally find the bootleg in a CD store that happens to sell bootlegs, months if not a year later. 

After all of that, you'd pay at least $60 for a 2 CD set (the going rate in the early 90s for bootlegs), then you'd STILL hear people screaming over the track. 

Instead, everyone gets to watch it literally in the palm of their hand from their couch if they want. Somehow, people still find a way to whine about it lol. 

In short; kids these days! 

She was annoying imagine being beside her for the entire show. Evrytimeva member comes near her, she screams asking for attention. 

For the people at home, sorry bit it's a live video and the person can enjoy their concert experience however they wish!

I totally hear you about the people around her. I've had more than a few super annoying people around me at concerts over the years. 

My post was solely directed at those who were complaining about it while watching it from their couch.

Who's rick? can someone elaborate on this story - i haven't followed it 

Extremely short version:

Rick is part of the reason all of the leaks happened.

The Locomotive video is on youtube. Shot from somebody in the front row. I don't want to link it in case it gets taken down.

 

It's been linked in this thread tons of times already.

Very cool! A decent performance from Axl as well. He struggled a bit in the middle, but as soon as he switched to the lower voice he sounded great again. He should switch to lower voice earlier next time.

There's a big difference between singing along and screaming like a Belieber, if someone is just singing along you won't hear them. At least not at a show with heavy guitars.

Also, singing along at GN'R shows helps blending out the Mickey.

Saw and heard Locomotive on blabbermouth.net

Freaking awesome! I've always loved the guitar part in that song and Axl sounded great!

Fans were screaming and singing along. It's cool to see GNR putting some more classics in their set list.

Imagine how exciting it must have been for Richard to finally play something epic like that after 20 years ... But yeah now that Axl has proven he can handle Locomotive I don't hold any doubts on him performing anything in their catalogue that has yet to be played

Not to mention you get full HD video along with the Audio.
