That outro solo was blistering! 

I actually went to see him on this tour and he wasn't playing this well! I walked away a bit disappointed actually... had I seen this!? I'd have been blown away!

Did he play it on the Les Paul or the Guild when you saw him? I personally think it lost something when he started playing this song with the Guild. Sloppy and awkward... I also prefer Civil War with the Les Paul...

Axl doesn't care about the dignity of his reputation, that's terrible for people who like him and care. While some fans try to defend the indefensible he's fucking hot chicks.

I think he has no interest of creating new art with Guns, he only likes doing concerts and while he gets money by this there will be no motivation to produce new material.

Sound winded? You must be joking right, i even bet he can do it it 10 times better than you. Never put anybody down, if you not can do it better yourself.

shove it

Lol, so a fan can't be critical about an artist? Axl is a pro, paid like one, and should perform like one. He naild LALD (did WTTJ decent), but the rest was weak. The worst thing about it is that he could pull it off, but doesn't want to because he doesn't care.

The balls on this performance!!! If he gave half as much to GNR we'd be over the moon. Great to watch this, and utterly head scratching at the same time.

I Know it's a 2hr show with AC/DC, not 3, but the difference in how he is singing For those about to rock... a really difficult song to deliver and how he performs Paradise city! It's night and day. 

I'd be happy if he went full on with AC/DC if it means we get to hear Axl Rose singing again, and not the fella that was on stage last night.

When do you get it, his middle register voice is gone/very bad, so he can do low voice good, and high awesome like AC/DC. We have talked about it for a year, and again Guns songs are damn hard to sing, just try to keep up with Estranged or Coma.

Favorite Slash performance of all time

One other thing. Has Slash changed his pose a bit? This was Slash previously (basically to look cool), legs akimbo and bent, slightly leaning back, Les Paul low slung,

That is the quintessential Slash pose.

Now he stands straighter and more upright - like a normal stance basically - and his guitar seems slightly higher. He still raises his guitar vertically for the solos, and does those little Chuck Berry-esque leg taps (which Ashba infuriatingly imitated!).

You can tell I am an expert on Slash's guitar shapes. A misspent youth.

But even his high voice sucked badly. He seriously cuts corners with that weak head falsetto

How Axl can go from sounding like he did on Ac Dc to Rio in a matter of months is perplexing. Never seen something this jarring vocally before. 

Probably as simple as, Axl might have been with vocal coach and sleeping well in ACDC and now in GnR he's getting pissed every night. I mean, there isn't a switch you turn on to sound great or shit.

Overall this show was very up and down. An improvement over Rio 2011? Sure, but thats not that hard to top, It was a disaster from top to bottom. 

Axl wasnt any worse than he's been the past few months, songs like Yesterdays, YCBM, RQ, UTLH, PC, NR, Michelle, and BHS sounded like they always do, shitty.Coma was a trainwreck, Axl's voice wasnt good throughout the song and then it fucking died at the end. I had not seen a full show of theirs in a while. Its a shame they're still doing extended jams all over the place, It kills energy so much. They would really benefit from trimming the fat off the setlist they are playing. In a festival setting, a lean, mean 18-20 set would have been really great. I know why they do all the jams, to give Axl room to catch his breath, but that shouldnt fly. If he cant cut it for such an extended set, then they should shorten it, and He should actually fucking prepare and rehearse, so that he can get it right without having to have all these momentum killers. 

Also, with pro shot, we got to hear Frank and Richard pretty clear(for the most part with richard, when his guitar sound wasnt being buried). Those guys shouldnt be anywhere near a new GNR album if there ever is one, IMO. They dont cut it. Frank is always all over the place and Richard's tone sucks.

Estranged is an easy song to sing...

Yeah Axl wasn't very good but I think tech problems fucked the band up from the start the timing was shocking all through the show. I have watched millions of GNR boots over the years but this would have to be the worse. Listen to the start of double talkin Jive it's like duff was completely losted it's wierd as

I have to be perfectly honest with myself, I really prefer this band here to the current iteration of GNR. Axl can't sing anymore and Slash plays like he doesn't care. 3 Years ago when that was recorded, I was begging for a Guns N' Roses reunion. I never thought I would be begging to go back lol. Hope to see Slash go back with Myles because that's probably the best he is going to do at the point in his career, money aside obviously. Slash has built a pretty great catalogue of songs over the years, all he needs is a singer that can do those songs justice. Myles has proven he can do it. I love Axl as much as anyone, but he doesn't have it anymore. I hate that, but its the sad, sad truth. Bring on the SMKC reunion!

Just seriously tell me that this Axl doesn't have it anymore:

 

I think he is just bored as fuck of this tour. It is taking too long to end.

Picking one song from one show doesnt prove a thing. He is consistently bad on many songs. SCOM, YCBM, PC, NR, Estranged, Dont Cry, Civil War, Yesterdays, Coma, etc... Pretty much any UYI song. If he isn't screaming at the top of his lungs or using his lower voice, it sounds pure Mickey. The excuses are getting silly. He's just bored? Really? That's why he sounds like mickey mouse, 'cause hes bored?

You have the whole 2016 USA tour where he sounded great. Then you have the AC/DC run. He still got it for sure. Yeah some songs sounds weaker (like SCOM, and YCBM) , but you can pick several examples of 2016 where songs like NR, Dont Cry, Civil War and even Coma sounded very good.

What I'm trying to say is as the tour progressed he started to sound worse on several songs. I think that is because he is not as excited as in the beggining, the novelty is off. Is just the same songs night after night, the autopilot is on. Autopilot = Mickey.

This CROWD sucks! In RIR 1991, people were jumping and singing SCOM like there would be no tomorrow. Now, they just raise their phones. I was at last show in Rio and the crowd sucked.

Sadly, it's not the crowd - see how they reacted to Alter Bridge the day before. And Myles was sick...

No, not really. Sometimes he did but never for a whole show. Houston came closest to great and that's the concert i would buy on bluray. The shows are great when you're there but otherwise very hit or miss. IMO.
