Best Live Recordings per era?


Recommended Posts

I can't believe no one has mentioned the June 13, 1991 Philadelphia AUD video? This is hands down the best performance from 1991 that I have ever seen.

A 3DVD set sourced from the master video has been floating around for 10 years.

On a related note, it put smiles on my face to see people recommend the Austin February 23, 1993 show.

Nearly 27 years later, that was hands-down the BEST concert I have ever seen by any band, EVER! :headbang:

And I have been to HUNDREDS of concerts since 1993...

 

Don’t worry, I got you on the philly show, great performances, put it on my list to start the second page. It’s fantastic, especially with the drama during Jungle

Best show period was Bridge School in 2012- I cant provide video proof because of the people who got unofficial links banned on the forum, so you’ll just have to take my word on it.

AFD Era- Ritz '88 UYI Era- Paris 1992 CD Era- HOB/Rio 2001, Boston 2002, Rock am Ring 2006, Tokyo 2009 NITL Era- Houston 2016

If they do a UYI box-set, I hope they include at least one of the warm-up shows. We know they were recorded in high quality. I'd hope for Pantages Theatre because they played Bad Apples and Don't Cry

I think the only 1991 recordings that I consider to be better than Philadelphia are the second night of Stockholm, Copenhagen, Wembley, and possibly the first two MSG gigs. November Rain and LALD from Philadelphia is GOAT in my book. They fucking nailed them, normally I can't stand listening to LALD, but the performance from Philly is just 10/10. 

I don't think I've seen anyone talk about it specifically, but the recording of the first night at MSG 1991 that surfaced a year or two ago has some of the best crowd singing I've heard on any bootleg.

Does a full set version of Rock Am Ring exist at all you would have thought that with it being recorded and most of it broadcast, someone who have got their hands on the material.

I thought Axls vocals for the Dublin 2010 show were great.  and my favorite part is how he just stood there for most of the show.   lol.  vocals were probably so good because he didnt run around at all

As someone who was there live I can confirm Axl's voice after he came back on stage and stood at the drum riser was brilliant.

does anyone ever think will we get a full pro shot video of the Troubador show from 2016? Or even any show from NITL ? Slash brought out a live album from SMKC in London recently & its amazing sound

Apparently there was a fall out with the company that did the Troubadour show and there were issues with the other gig that was filmed also. 🙄

Thanks to @Axl_morris for this info:-

 

4C4 Media, who filmed Guns N’ Roses’ first reunion show at the Troubadour in April 2016, is not happy with Guns N’ Roses. They said the band wouldn’t hire them to film at Dodger Stadium, and when the cheaper production people they hired screwed up, GNR wanted their help.

They wrote on Vimeo, “thank you…and then when the big money shows came around,,,they didn’t even take our calls and then agreed with tour promoters to use their in house people (always cheap) hired a company for Dodger Stadium who brought in a “FlyPac” to record the show. A FlyPac” is what news outlets use to do live shots from intentional distentions. Occasionally they are used as switchers for multi-camera shoots…3 cameras at most. (Dodger Stadium???? Three cameras..????) The Production company called me when they knew they were in trouble..,it was my time to not pick up the phone, Fuck them.”

Just FYI: this is from Alt. Nation, and I haven't found a single other link to this "information", so I'd take with a big grain of salt...

Are there any soundboards of the 1987 Marquee gigs that doesn’t have the fake crowd noise mixed in?

I think I’m right in saying the Live In The Jungle EP tracks are from the Marquee and don’t have the rubbish crowd mixed in like the Niven disc?

There is a mix that doesn't have the crappy crowd noise. It's hard to find though since the start of all the takedowns

Will get looking! I know there is an audience recording so will need to avoid that. Cheers for the info. 👍

2006? 

Yep - the 06 Rock Am Ring. Most of it was broadcast but some solos and a couple of songs were omitted. Just wondered if they had ever surfaced?

Is it Robin that cements that version of the band for you? 

Overall, yeah, but he was around from 99 on. The addition of Frank & Ron along with Robin is what makes that line up my favorite.

I like Frank as well, at least Frank before the NITL tour. Something about his kit sound has just been off to me. I like 2006, and 2009/10. Really wish Robin would have been there for the Asia and 2010 your. I feel like Ron shines more in his later years with the band; maybe that due to Robin's absence?
