It's almost like he can't just keep quiet and stop playing.

That's exactly it. Every time during a quiet part of a song where he's "keeping time" it's completely unnecessary and doesn't sound good.

It's weird how his voice reverts to 1992 rasp only for the word "smilin'"

Anyone who was talking bad about the crowd in this thread obviously wasn’t there. The crowd was massive, and LOUD, and the people in the front had been waiting 4+ hours in A TROPICAL STORM to see Guns. I truly think people don’t realize that last night after GNR came off stage, through the night, we got hit with so much rain and wind that I haven’t had power at my house since 4:30 this morning. This show could have not even happened, but it did!
 

i personally was about 2 rows back, right under Axl. As I’ve already mentioned, there was some sort of magic, or aura in the air last night. Im not sure if it was the fact that it had been raining ALL day, but as soon as GNR came on, it just all of a sudden stopped and cleared up, or something else just clicked. Axl was having so much fun running from side to side on the stage. He sounded and looked SO happy and was smiling and waving to the crowd. 
 

The little pocket of people around me was singing And dancing and jumping to every word to every song. When they ripped into Dead Horse we all went crazy and started clapping and encouraging Axl to go for it! We were singing the lyrics super loud and he was dancing and feeling it and Slash was smiling. I wish there was a video, you can kinda see it in Meegans but they look looser, more comfortable. I’d like to mention that there was no ego thrust in the middle of the stage, so Axl and Duff spent a LOT of time standing and interacting with  each other directly in the middle of the stage. 
 

Some highlights-

1. The absolute POP during Welcome To The Jungle. You can see and hear it in Meegans live video. 
 

2. During DTJ, Axl backed off on the intro and kinda lost the intro and Slash accounted for this and played an awesome little flurish to which Axl came running out into singing Double Talking Jive. It was awesome.

3. This crowd was bonkers. During Rocket Queen, some woman under the influence of some type of drug made her way all the way from the back of the crowd pushing towards the front. She made it to the rail and pushed everyone off of the rail. Security had to literally pick her up out of the crowd and take her away. Fortus was watching it as it happened, but I think word made its way around stage because before YCBM, Axl said something along the lines of “we are getting a little rambunctious out there. Why don’t we try to calm things down with this soothing music” 

4. Shadow Of Your Love is so good!! I have some very high def video of Axl absolutely killing this song. My new favorite.

5. Civil War > Dead Horse > Coma. come on!!! How can you complain about the setlist when it’s like that right now!!! I think I peaked during this. I was waiting for Locomotive to make an appearance and it looks like it was scratched from the setlist? Im glad we got Dead Horse though. I think this was the show they wanted to make it their bitch, and wouldn’t be surprised if its dropped after this and only added at the last show. 
 

6. Here is my stance on the covers argument: I agree, some of these songs maybe should have been dropped by now. But for whatever reason they keep playing them. But if this is what we get, so be it. The covers in the encore maybe were overkill, yes. BUT, apparently Axl said Seeker was an Audible and that they “called a quick team meeting and we are going to play another song.” So we could have left with 24 songs instead of the 25 we got, and that means you can tell they were having fun and wanted to stay a little longer. 
 

7. As for the sound/timing/band issues, I honestly think this is Guns N’ Roses in its final form. This band is just SO good. So fucking good. Everyone around me was into it the whole 3 hours. Not many acts can do that these days, trust me. 
 

I think this show will go down as one of those secret gems that people who were there will remember forever. Axl sounded great. The whole band was having fun. Theres not much more you could ask for. There may never be a bootleg or full videos from this show thanks to the rain, but that is what makes it great. Those who were there know!
 

To address the Axl being angry incident, Axl chucked his regular mic into the crowd as the band left the stage after Paradise. When they came back on stage after to do the bow, there was no 2nd mic. Axl was looking around like a mad man for a mic and he finally found one and it wasn’t turned up so he threw the mike towards stage left and then walked up to the front with the rest of the band, bowed 2 times, then took his hat off and threw it stage left as well. Seems like it was just a situation of trying to get a mic in a small amount of time and he couldn't. 
 

oh, and uh. I have a friend who was backstage and sent me a picture of the unedited setlist with the alts on the bottom. As of last nignt, Hard School is still on the alt’s setlist backstage and not presented to the public on social media. I think we can stop considering it a troll at this point. 
 

i’ll post some photos and videos when I can figure out how to

I was the one that picked that girl up over the rail as security took her away.   She was one of a few that I had to help security with.

So curious! Exact same place as the previous show. 
 

Axl’s voice is such an enigma :).  Maybe he should write a song called Smilin’...

I agree with your comments about the crowd. Everyone around me was super stoked about the band. Met quite a few diehards like me and had a great time getting to know a little bit about them.

Where did you read that? 

Blabbermouth about a month ago - Myles and Tremonti were going over their new album and the Slash Question came up 

 

Myles has heard the new  riffs for Gnr and  Smkc  And said he was super  stoked  for both albums - Tremonti also said he heard them and was really thrilled how groovy they were - not much more than that 

Myles did Slash had written some of his best work for the new Smkc and Guns Records

Good show. I wasn’t happy with the VIP viewing area so I negotiated with a girl standing at the entrance to the VVIP all-inclusive section and gave her $20 for each of us to get into that section.  That enabled us to watch the show between the Gen Pop rail and the stage. I wish they would get rid of The Seeker and Wichita Lineman still but other than that, no complaints.

Going from head voice to chest voice, it's that simple 

Head voice is falsetto while chest voice is strong and sometimes has some rasp

3hrs.. 25 songs.. not short

You have to give them credit. Very few bands, especially at their age, are going to be on stage for 3hrs+.  Tickets can be expensive but so are tickets to Aerosmith and they aren't out there nearly as long.
