10/23/19 - Oklahoma City, OK - Chesapeake Energy Arena [Dead Horse played for the first time since 1993]

Recommended Posts

I didn't think it sounded that bad tbh.

Although Dead Horse would be pretty low down on my list of deep cuts. Give me any of these over DH:

Right Next Door To Hell, Bad Apples, You Ain't The First, Think About You, Anything Goes, Breakdown.

Looks like he was telling him to keep the melody going. If you remember the actual song, it just goes to a tape cut. So, Slash could have ended at any time, Axl told him to bring it back around so he could sing it.

This is the universal symbol in bands for "go around one more time." He wanted Slash to play that part again because he missed his  mark/cue to start vocals.

Did Dead Horse sound perfect? No, it surely did not, but I am just glad to see them trying different songs. Now bring on Hard School.

I think that probably sums it all up really. Concise.

It wasn’t the best performance of the song, far from it, but so what? They’ve messed up, it’s a live rock n roll concert, I don’t see any problem with that, it’ll be better next time. Some people turn everything into a big drama as if the band is garbage just because they’ve messed up DH. C’mom, chill out, have a laugh! I personally prefer them trying something new and failing at it then the exact same show night after night. Now we have something else to talk about besides all the Locomotive statistics.  Let’s choose the coolest DH live performance! 😄

Totally agree.

Axl you do know you are supposed to use a Acoustic Guitar right? No complaining just thought you should know

 

Axl would look funny as fuck with tho... the guitar would look like an ukulele

I’ve listened to it a few more times since last night and I will say, while I really do think Axl could’ve and should’ve thrown a bit more rasp into it, he sounds fine. I do maintain that they probably could’ve thrown this in another rehearsal or two- while it is nice to see a rock band play as, well, a rock band, I think this being that sloppy with most band members messing up a part was a bit embarrassing. At least it was hard for me to watch.

Frank isn't bad IMO and if he is bad, he's not anywhere near as bad as people say he is. 

I wasn’t as keen on him until late, I think this tour he came in like an absolute boss. My complaints about him recently have vanished.

Dead Horse should be played like this and ONLY like this!

No Axl on guitar intro, no Frank idiotism

Also, there is no edge on Oklahoma version, a bit too 'plastic'  in a way

 

Axl sounded better than this last night.

Me too. I really feel like he has improved, or the band just has more chemistry now.

Again, I’m happy as hell we got it, but I think another thing that kinda bothered me was the lack of an acoustic intro. I’m not saying Axl has to play it, but I think it would’ve been cool to see by maybe fortus- always gave the scream and the meat of the song a good punch.

I thought that too. Fortus has a crazy effects setup, I'm surprised he didn't bust out something that makes his electric sound acoustic.

Agree to disagree.  There are plenty of $50 tickets in the upper sections for these shows. $300 isnt a default

There are different price tiers for a reason.

Umm. Yes. When going to a concert, sitting in the upper section is not an option. At least when you really care. If that's all I'm made to be able to afford, then I stay home and not go through the trouble to leave my house, city, country and attend a show.

That's true - there are cheaper seats. I was sort of forgetting that. 

I was making a generalization more about the sort of people that make up a GNR crowd now, as opposed to the past. I wasn't suggesting that the only people who go fuck people over......more about how the expectations of the crowd now are very, very different to those of the past. And let's face it - a lot of people going to see them these days are the EXACT sort of people the band railed against in their younger days, and the sort of people who would be horrified by encountering the band in their youth. That's more my point- the the generalization was an exaggerated stereo type really. Probably a bit clumsy. 

I do think that income equality is kind of represented in concerts though - there's no doubt about the fact that prices have rocketed and younger/poorer fans are now relegated to the rafters at the back, or totally locked out of a lot of live music. That's very sad to me- it used to be that kids could buy a ticket, queue up and get to the front. In my view it made for more enthusiastic, excited crowds and a more lively live music experience. Looking back at old footage of concerts with crowds going wild you can't help but wonder how different things would have been if all those kids at the front were stuffed at the back in favour of those with the cash to pay to be up close. Probably all a discussion for another time though!

Slash just got a bit confused during the solo. Probably caught off guard or forgot it all of a sudden, then he forgot the 'smilin' outro. Shit happens. Axl and Frank tried to get it back on track. Will be good to see the next performance of this. Hopefully Slash keeps the solo sounding more like the record - it's one of those solos that's a song within a song and helps the transition. 

 

This is GNR. Trying cool/new songs, and polishing them with each show. The band I grew up with. Love it.

:D It's really not an alt version. :D They got lost during the solo section and couldn't recover.

It's cool they played it but man...talk about half assing everything. Way too much Mickey here as well, the song loses all it's grit and power sung like that. They sounded like a very unprofessional cover band here, sorry.

gonna agree they all sounded like a bad cover band other than axls scream that he got its a dying cat killing mickey throughout - we all want deep cuts - but i had a feeling this song just wouldn't be possible, the entire song is rasp and any hints he would go for it didn't come to fruitition 

why is that he could bring it for shoot to thrill and back and black but for dead horse no-

this is the gold standard
