Riot shields or bust.  

Cant beleive its taken the band 3 months to do this, and Fernando only agreeing to do something like this when told to him directly by the fans. If GNR want to look at being a top tier band this

Ok had a proper chance to watch this now. Thoughts...

ADVERTS - seriously what the fuck. Time them between songs. I literally got an advert WITHIN THE LAST BAR OF COMA (litrrally just before "memories to survive"), total mood killer.

New Rose - okay. Not much else to say.

My Michelle - was the sound off for anyone else, i.e. a slight delay? The screen was c. 0.5 of a second ahead of the sound. Either that or they had rerecorded parts.

Coma - amazing. My only slight gripe is that Frank was rushing the tempo a touch near the start, and I thought I heard a duff chord (I.e. a wrong chord, not duff) from Richard during the solo.

This I Love - good vocal, considering how complex and difficult it is. I doubt anyone in the world could do it justice with the same levels of rasp. Maybe dropping it a key would help. The kick-in during the second pre-chorus was epic. I don't mind the noodly solo, but I can see how noodling would result in a hit or miss result. Slash really needs to work something out a bit more structured if they play this song again. 

Out To Get Me - as many have said before, appalling QC with the sound volume jumping mid way through the track. Be warned if listening on headphones! The soft female backing vocals which work well on some songs diminish the anguish of this song (never noticed this live before). Axl on fire. Great version.

November Rain - at one point this was my favourite GnR song. Now I'm just a bit bored of it. However this was a good version.

Finally - love Slash's t-shirts.

Also got an advert at the moment in Coma.

I suggested to Fernando that the extra vinyl could be split from AFD box (b-sides/Sound City) for RSD after someone asked if they would be individually available. He had replied to that person to say there were no plans at that time and I said RSD would be perfect. 

That is an excellent idea.

Some folk would be annoyed I guess at losing the exclusivity - I genuinely couldn’t care less 😂. They were selling the rings and extras etc separately so stands to reason there must be vinyls kicking about.

And the boost it would give local record stores - people would be queuing BIGTIME to get their hands on them....and then picking up other stuff while in the shop.  He has a Q&A thread on Reddit - I’ll fire off another suggestion...what’s the worst that can happen! 😂

I really wish they had done OTGM and My Michelle from the Cincinnati show with Steven. That was the best performance of those 2 songs from the whole tour.

I'll watch the whole video in the morning but so far it seems like they didn't do anything to improve the mix (still has the blanket over the speakers sound) and I really wish they would slow down, specifically Coma. It sounds way too rushed.

Agree re the tempos - it’s an easy fix so don’t know why they have it quicker.

I was just thinking - do we think the mix/quality has anything to do with the proposed live release that’s due? I mean - we can all rip the stuff off YouTube and make our own so if we can do that with A+ sound....where’s the ‘appetite’ for people to buy an official release? Maybe that’s why it’s not A+ quality for these videos (other bands may not take the same approach - MetallicAs stuff is always mixed well regardless of the medium). Just a thought - could be just tin-hat stuff....😂

Idk I'm not sure that has anything to do with the mix. I think they're just being lazy and using a board mix instead of redoing it from scratch.

Could be - as I say, it could just be me and conspiracy theory stuff 😂

I like that you can really hear the synth work at the ending of 'This I Love'.

That video of 'Out Ta Get Me' is amazing. Band on fire, they all look cool. (Just needs the audio spike sorted, they should be able to do that without taking the video down by contacting YouTube).

Coma was basically the best possible version we could ask for. (Honestly comparable to any 90's performance)

Hope we get WTTJ in the next selects (Alongside maybe KOHD?).

This video shows that 2016 will produce better clips, so hopefully they stick with that. I'd say mostly take performances from 2016 and add songs that were added at a later date (SOYL, Dead Horse, Locomotive etc)

No it's a good idea. You could still make it exclusive. I picked up a Dio vinyl this morning limited to 300 units globally. Amd I supported a local father / daughter business who now have £80 of my money, and I have excellent limited edition vinyls by Brian Eno, The Who and Dio.

Re: the adverts. I saw a tip in the YouTube comments section to skip to the end of the video and then hit replay to lose them. It costs them earnings, I guess, but the way the ads have been clumsily placed makes it their own fault. It’s not a coincidence the ads come in after the songs have started or are about to end, it’s a mistake by whoever’s responsible.

Awesome - I picked up a few gems in the past on RSD.....Rush’s Cygnus EP, Alice in Chains EP spring to mind. Good on you for   supporting them. 👍

Just watched this again......

That OTGM sound issue is still there- the quality improves significantly half way through. 

Also....I'm damn glad I watched it live. Those adverts are ridiculous, thrown in mid song! My GF said "watching this is like your Mum walking in while you're having a wank and asking you what you want for your tea"!

Forgot how badly Slash just noodled his way through the TIL solo in 2016 :facepalm:

This solo was quite OK, enjoyable. Thogh I agree that Slash in general did not do justice to TIL.
