I think I have a good perspective as I saw NILT 6 times, including night one in Vegas and the amazing Apollo show in NYC. Here is my takeaway from the show.  I’m not going to even mention the set

With all due respect, coming from a guy who travels to the UK often for work and has many friends there, why do people like you feel the need to attack/trash/insult an entire country?  Yet, here you a

Different voices, different styles, different techniques

However one thing in common between all of those videos - they know how to use their vocals and adjust accordingly.  And each of those singers at that age onwards still, are very consistent

 

With Axl, he has occasional years of vocal brilliance (2006, 2010, 2016), followed by years of "meh".  And unfortunately the "meh" years span longer amounts of time - I honestly thought in 2016 it was going to be a new era for Axl and he finally figured out how to bring the rasp back into the mix consistently.  He sounded great in 2016, but man it has definitely been a decline in the years since

They played November Rain.

I stand corrected.  Looking at the song lists, I cannot go to,  didn't they miss one or two big hits.                                               ItsSo Easy. They played that song. Duff is very hypocritical  PC now by pretending their past never was.  NOTE.  I did not not say they should not have grown up . That song is rough and personally, I NEVER liked it from day one decades ago. My question. Do they change the words?

All these people here and only two club members.

Three! But most of this thread seems to be people that weren't at the show complaining about the setlist and how Axl sounds. While the people that were there who post, seemed to like it. Of course I could be wrong,I don't think I've read all fifty plus pages.

I don't get why the titan tron is always full of random goofy graphics. Is that normal for huge shows where fuckers up in the nosebleeds can't see shit? Surely everyone would be happier seeing the band on the screen?

I think they put on a pro show. That's my opinion, you can have yours.

All the drama with people being done with the band for the umpteenth time :rolleyes:(not saying you said that, I don't know if you did)

It's not about lowering my bar. I will follow GNR and the forum as long as I enjoy it. I would love new music, but I don't see the point in endlessly repeating the same complaints at every opportunity. (Even if they are legit.)

I think 5 members of gnr put on a pro show, and they prop up Axl. That's not even opinion, it's just plain and simple the way it is. Listen to welcome to the jungle again from last night, besides the final chorus, does that sound good to you? The man cannot sing any one of his biggest hits. The best of the hits vocally is Paradise city and most people hate how he sounds on that song now.

Having said that, if you enjoy it! Fire away! My own preference is Axl singing well.

Not surprised they didn't drop some new material. Is it not best to drop that on an actual GNR gig and not a festival? Axl look's to be in better shape than the 2-3 previous legs. I hope he can keep that off & stay motivated come to the next gigs that are quite far spread out.

Since we cannot post links here anymore, can anyone at least give a hint of where I can find the You’re Crazy video?

Search on Facebook. (Hopefully this hasn’t contravened some rules, if it has please show leniency)

With all due respect, coming from a guy who travels to the UK often for work and has many friends there, why do people like you feel the need to attack/trash/insult an entire country?  Yet, here you are, on a forum for a band from the USA (a rather drab band at this point, mind you), insulting all Americans.  I can confidently say you don't speak for all Brits, as the ones I know have a lot more common sense to not blindly throw insults like this around.  But I digress. 

I, too, find these tributes to Kobe quite tacky.  All low-flying aircraft that day were grounded in LA due to the weather.  Someone made a foolish and selfish decision to fly... probably Kobe himself... and it cost him and 8 others their lives.   It's a tragedy, but tragedy's happen every day to common people all over the world, including 'classless' Americans, as you've so dubbed all of us.  They're all a shame, but tributes to the uber-privileged are just so tiresome.  We can agree there. 

That aside, did you ever consider that Axl lives in LA and is a HUGE Lakers fan?  As is others in the band?  Kobe was known to be quite the stubborn arse, just like Axl, so they, I'm sure, connected on that level in a way we couldn't possibly understand.  If I could offer a bit of advice, if they want to pay a tribute to somebody they admired, whether you or I think it's tacky or not, let them do it and try not attack an entire populus of people from another country... on a forum for a band from that country.  

Does anybody on here ever attack Brits for their obsession with a defunct monarchy?   Can I insult you because all that's all over the papers and news channels in your country is all about Harry and Meghan?  Two people that have absolutely no bearing on any of our lives.  Is it tacky when your country pays tribute to Princess Dianna at every turn, to this day?  Can we Americans call all Brits lifeless fools for the constant obsession over the royal family... the most uber-privileged group of people in the world that your hard earned money supports via taxation? 

Will you be upset when Elizabeth kicks the bucket?  Will you be okay with the 'tacky' tributes to her when the time comes?  

This is my first post ever on this forum, and probably the last (I like GNR and like to see photos and videos from their concerts... this forum seems to be a good place to find that stuff), but I just had to chime in when I read this comment.  It's incredibly insulting coming from someone in a country where it's people do the same types of things, and practically adore anything American.   A quick look at the 20 most popular websites visited by people in Britan in 2019 based on user traffic (https://www.lexiconnect.co.uk/top-20-uk-websites.html) finds that just about all of them have their home or origins in America (Google, Youtube, Facebook, etc.).  #16 on that list?  Pornhub.  That's classy.  American too!

So, what's really tacky here is someone from across the pond who feels the need to attack/insult an entire nation because he doesn't like some tribute to some American sports hero at some American band's concert, in America, on a forum for said American rock band.  

As if his people never put their celebrities up on a pedestal as if they're some kind of Queen or King or Prince or something.   How silly would that be in the 21st century?

Pot, meet kettle.  

 

I see you have a similar sense of humour to Axl...

Equally tired is all the bitching about setlist, weight, hair, etc. Nobody is forcing anyone to go, or even pay attention. So many people complain and say ‘I’m done with this shit’, only to be back next show with the same tired complaints

I stopped giving a shit about this band a long time ago. I'm still here for the same reasons people would slow down to look at a car crash.

Why get so bothered?. Does it have any affect on your daily life or in some way financially help or hinder you personally?. 

 

 

All of your posts are complaining about the people complaining, with all due respect wouldn't this also apply to you?  Your posts are more about "sticking it to the haters" on here than actually discussing GNR

Well I guess I’m done with GNR for a while. Until the Buenos Aires show (which I’m attending) I won’t check any set lists or videos or anything. I’m the first one to defend Axl and his voice but it’s gone in lots of songs. I’m not trying to be a hater but I’m not liking this version of Axl and GNR either

Either Slash is telling the truth on recording material or not, I honestly think Axl is "scared" of going back into the studio again with Slash, since we all know what happened the last time and I dont think Axl wants to ruin that relationship again if him or Slash dont agree on the material. Anyways I've given up hope of a new record, the band is a corporate/ nostalgia act now compared to what it was, which is a fucking shame.
