  1. Back in the hotel and I’m EXHAUSTED. But wow. I truly couldn’t have asked for a better first show back. I’m happy beyond what words can express. I REALLY needed that. I’m going to write a whole wall of text tomorrow for my review, but for now, I’ll just give the biggest highlight of the night: AXL WAVED AT ME. TWICE. 😭 I’ll go into more detail tomorrow, but yeah, I’m basically never getting over it and I’m so happy about it.

  2. Like others have said, I am still flying high from the show last night. Here are a couple of my takeaways/ review: -Axl was in a great mood all night; a ton of crowd interaction and genuinely felt like he was giving 110%. A couple pages back someone made a point about the reverb within the arena tends to scoop out some of the highs and lows of the EQ which makes his vocals sound more passable, but as far as I could hear from my location, he absolutely crushed it last night. We have to still give him shit that he missed his queue in the Jungle outro though! -Slash is on another level, too many highlights to mention, but thought it was very cool that he just sat down on a monitor during his guitar solo and went absolutely apeshit. This is my third time to see the band since NITL started and he was more interactive with the crowd and put on a killer performance. -Fortus' playing is rather impressive; I was actually into RQ this time around but KOHD did get pretty monotonous since it feels like the song stretches 45 minutes. -The band was going crazy playing Absurd - Axl kicked it up a notch and Slash was noticeably throwing down while playing it. -I understand the setlist disappoints many here and sure it would be great to hear a proper version of Dead Horse, So Fine, PTU, Locomotive, etc., but all in all, it is a damn good setlist. GNR rocked out for 3 hours last night and I'll never complain about that. All in all the easiest way for me to sum it up is this - being in the pit at a GNR show with Axl, Slash & Duff is truly one of my happy places. I will never turn down a GNR show if it is remotely in my geography and I sincerely hope they are back in Texas sooner than later. It is an absolute treat to watch this band live. I was slightly too young to catch them during UYI, so it was a long wait to get to 2016- Present, but I think all is great in the GNR world and I'm super optimistic that we're going to see new music sooner than later. This band is too good not to put out new material. Can't get this link to embed in my post but caught couple great shots of Axl on the piano next to Slash. https://ibb.co/qYLPn3S

  4. I’m still on a high from the show last night. Like many on here, I follow all the shows on the tour. I can nitpick with the best of them about Axl’s vocals, the setlist, etc. And I do think it’s valid meaning everyone is entitled to their opinions and thoughts on these topics. We’re hardcore fans, after all. But for me personally, last night was just everything for me. I mean, I was front row on the rail, right in the middle. The view alone would’ve made the night a 10/10. But then yes, Axl waved at me twice. During Estranged and during Patience. This isn’t the first time he’s waved at me so the fact that it has happened again, well, I don’t know how he does it, or how I do it, but he’s been able to spot me out (it probably helps I’m acting like a lunatic lol). It just makes me so happy. I mean, this is Axl Rose, my favorite frontman and artist of all-time. It’s such a small thing for him to do but means everything to me. He is very very interactive with the fans in the front and it’s all very genuine, you can just tell. He and the whole band were having a blast last night. Before November Rain, Axl plopped himself up on top of his piano and just sprawled himself out for no apparent reason other than just having a good time. I can’t remember after which song it was, but he randomly sang the lyric “deep in the heart of Texas.” He said little quips like that all night. Yes it was the same old setlist, but seeing as I haven’t heard these songs live in a long time, I was okay with not getting Hard Skool. It’s pretty funny though because as much as we bitch about the covers, Axl was clearly SO into performing Wichita Lineman and The Seeker. He sounds good on them too, so that’s nice. It really is awe-inspiring to see Slash and Duff so up close. They are masters of their craft and getting to see it and hear it so up close was just awesome. They were also having a blast all night. I mean, smiles had by all. And that’s really what it’s all about, right? Especially in these times. So…I guess that’s it for my review. I tend to go on and on but in a nutshell: I had a blast, the band had a blast, and it’s just what I needed. I’ll see y’all next in the next show thread as we continue to beg for Hard Skool.

  5. I get in the venue, finally. I turn to my right, and I see the merch table. I’ve gotten posters from every show i’ve seen so far, so I figure why the fuck not. As im in line, i see the posters go, but the one on the rack stays. Its finally my turn. I ask her for the one on the rack, and she says no, then asks her supervisor who says yes. i literally got the last poster on the west side of the stadium. Fuck me, life likes to be crazy sometimes!

  8. And you still haven't figured out that we on this fan forum are actually the manority and the causal fan base are the majority that attend the shows. You talk as if they think like we do, via picking apart everything the band does from Axls vocals, to his choice of shoes or boots he wears on stage, to the band choosing its set list, to people taking issue with the bands management. They simply don't have the knowledge or care . Their lifestyle does not revolve around a online fan forum. In fact these are the people better positioned to offer an unbiased opinion of the live performance. Those casual fans that attend the shows, often walk out having enjoyed the show and experience. They don't enter the show with any expectations or baggage in relation to Axls vocals, his level of rasp, lack of deep cuts from past albums not being played live or if they have heard Abusrd before. They don't over think things and enjoy themselves.

  14. People on here keep talking about this like it’s bad. And maybe for those that are it is. For me personally it’s not. Went to MetLife on 8/5 and going to AC next weekend. And it’s not to just have a night out because I live there…I live in TN. Been to see Foo Fighters quite a bit. From tour to tour they change a few songs (because of new albums….yeah I know) but it’s essentially the same songs every show….no one complains. And they always close the show with Everlong. Bottom line for me is I’ll never grow tired of hearing my favorite band sing some of my favorite songs.

  15. What really amuses me it's that when he was with ACDC HE suggested doing old songs. Live Wire / Touch too much / If You want blood/ Problem Child / Dog eat dog. He Made ACDC play all this deep cuts and he doesn't do the same with his own band. Let alone the fact he did prepare himself and sing great there

  16. I would be shocked if 5% of the crowd heard of it. I'll never forget seeing GnR in 2006 and singing along with Better and people asking me how I knew the song and what was it

  20. Axl said "One minute you're working at McDonald's, the next, R. Kelly is blowing you." before The Seeker. https://www.yahoo.com/now/first-man-accuse-r-kelly-200348671.html?guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAABn76NJcXn7m_BSAIa-Rqta2Mx6cNQ1a85Rbmjf_g5nNoKQpA4njDW3s4zXj_29SakManagFBNS8fcAiWEX9zhaMNmEIXyJl4xCLXXm7nNOqjoKkdqwzZdNfBdIAouKJP1zFGYiTO86igKnMv9vA1jqigw7KGqufRrcJIVFCETU8

  21. I miss Scott Weiland. He had great chemistry with Slash and he had the voice and the song writing ability. Not on Axl's level obviously but he was great in his own right. I wish I could've seen Velvet Revolver. May he rest in peace.

  25. I love the jams and hope they never stop... As Slash once said at a very old show.. "If you don't like it, go get a beer or go fuck your old lady or something"

  26. I had to quit playing it on repeat. There's a school in our subdivision and they complained that with school back in session, too many kids were dancing in the halls every time I played it.

  27. I went to the 2002 Cleveland show. I was a massive Guns fan and was too young to have seen the Illusion tour. It was awesome. The anticipation of waiting for Axl and his version of GNR to take the stage was incredible. The placed exploded with the opening chords of Jungle. No GNR show I’ve seen since then (2006, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021) has come close. Despite Axl’s voice being very different, he had the true Axl Rose attitude. Fucking loved it

  28. A few pictures from previous tours: The famous Besseggen, where you walk along an edge with the dark blue Bessvatnet to the right and the cyan (because of glacial sediments) Gjendevatnet to the left. From the descent down to the cabin Gjendebu, just before perilous and very steep Bukkelægret where we have to descend with the aid of ropes and wires: From the cross through Svartdalen. Tall peaks and glaciers surround us. Down beautiful Fleskedalen towards Vetti. The Vetti water fall, 273 meter free fall. This year's hike again, entering the pass between Supphelledalen and Snauedalen, after a streneous climb. The ice patch would cause some problems since we didn't bring crampons.

  29. This a random setlist from 2016: https://www.a-4-d.com/t2679-2016-07-19-gillette-stadium-foxboro-ma-usa Songs played in the last three shows in 2021 that were not played in 2016: Slither, You're Crazy, Absurd, Don't Cry, Madagascar, Wichita, I Wanna Be Your Dog. Songs in the 2016 setlist that haven't been played in 2021: TIL, Coma, Out Ta Get Me, My Michelle, Sorry, Attitude (they rotated Patience with Don't Cry then, now they play both). The jams have also changed.

  30. Literally everyone who were at the shows are happy, and literally everyone who werent at the shows bitch about them. A friend o'mine went to Dallas show totally by coincidence, and apart from not being a fan, he specifically hates axl, and has no respect to slash. He just told me he had fun, band performance was excellent, slash is fun and axl was surprisingly good, he tot he was fat and couldnt move or sing. he told me he never seen a rockstar looking healty and cool as fuck as Duff. He's a die hard tallica fan and wants Duff to give them a couple of advices

  37. Jokes aside, YCBM was fine in person at the show I saw. The stadium reverb muddies up his midrange so only the high notes and screams really cut through properly. Masks a lot of the poor vocals tbh. I AM NOT SAYING YOUTUBE MAGICALLY MAKES IT BETTER

  39. Axl commented at the 2012 UCAP Philly show that he had cancelled the show in the early hours of that morning as he was sick, but his manager didn't tell the correct parties/promoter or something. If you have the Bootleg, it's right before You Could Be Mine.

  42. An album could have been released 2002. They had tracks that in my opinion sounded fucking amazing by March 2000. By 2002 had a few more tracks like The General and Better etc. A solid 12 track album could have come out.

  46. I don’t think Axl’s mental health was in a place to pull off tours in 2002. When he says he was “sick”, that can mean a variety of things. I also firmly believe he has gone on medication since then.

  47. It's funny how a bunch of people on a forum are coming up with better marketing ideas than the band themselves.
