I agree that the current version is a bore and I personally cant stand it.  The Illusion version needs to return and sounds much better IMO, but Guns made KOHD their song, no doubt about that.  It's about giving the casual fan what they want and we all know that they would much rather hear KOHD over Coma and Locomotive. At the end of the day they are giving the casual and hardcore fans what they want by including both KOHD and Coma/Locomotive and more people are taking extended bathroom breaks for the latter songs mentioned.

if Axl is annoyed by the UYI version, this would be a cool alternative. just a chill out version. this is how you should sing at bridge school by the way. just Axl,  Slash and Dizzy at Piano/Tambourine.

They handled the power outage pretty good imo.. The crowd reacted great as well but also Slash did some nice entertaining 

Axl too, he did a magic trick with a white towel. He made his right leg disappear. So funny to see Axl playing with the crowd. He seemed very down to earth.

Uhm, yes. You can ditch KNOHD. It's a bore and drags on too long. And it's not a GNR song. If 2 of the most interesting GNR songs is too much for people, then they should just go to someone else's shows. Or use it as a long bathroom break.

It is a GNR song, it's a great sing along and that is the main reason why it remains in the set.

Yep, it drags now in comparison to the old version but when you're there it's enjoyable to sing along. If it was on a DVD release I'd probably watch it once and then skip it unless they sounded fantastic throughout.

Yeah. The reason I play the Coachella version from time to time is because although it drags, it's a great performance and that combined with the quality make it an enjoyable listen.

It is a GnR cover song, not a GnR song.  I know you know better come on man.

Ha! I know, I know :D If it came down to it, of course it's not their song! it's Dylans. In the context of a GNR set, it's one of the songs people pay to hear when they see GNR, that's why it remains.

Gn'R certainly made it their own back in the day.. It was technically a cover but I always considered teh version they play a Guns song.. Now, not so much... It just isn't very good anymore..

It's just SO labored now. I cannot imagine anyone involved in playing it really like what they're doing while they're playing it.

Back in the nineties it had so much energy and really was a bit of a highlight. Was an amazing version of a great song.

It's lost all the spark and now has become the most boring part of the concert every night.

How the Appetite line up played Heavens Door, in my opinion it is the best version of the song. Axls delivery made it seem more meaningful, and Steven's intro/ groove made it more raw and "impactful" in a way.

For the first time since 2017, I watched Axl Rose trying to sound better in Sweet Child O mine. Not that he reached a raspy version, far from that, but at least he was trying at this show.

I was really surprised when I saw how popular KOHD is on Spotify. Way more than Don't Cry, Patience and YCBM.... the ALBUM version... :blink:

That kicks ass! Love Slash's descending run at 1:28. 

Really a highlight for them nowadays.... why don't they just write like 4-5 songs with that vocal range! Do a frenetic, punky little EP. Axl can rock that zone still apparently.

Not too surprised...KOHD is still played on our local rock stations.

Holy fuck! 

Great version! That's also, the first time I've watched Slash on the NITL tour and thought of the 90s Slash, totally going for it, Loved how loose and fast that solo was. Slash! more of that kind of thing!

Has SCOM really ever sounded that great live since the 80's? What is the definitive live version in people's minds? 

I don't think I've ever really liked it live in any incarnation except for Ritz 88, which is the opposite of basically every other GNR song for me.

Probably one of the early versions form 87, 88, 89 when he was still singing the studio vocal "woaaaah sweet child of mine" instead of the "wow". I'd love if he did the old way every once in a while. You're right though, it's one of those songs that he never really comes close to the studio version, but there are many live versions of other studio songs that he has bested.

I really like he aggressiveness and grit of the UYI versions, but it doesn’t have that feeling the studio did-maybe the closest is the Ritz ‘87 version. Man it’s fantastic
