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

I'm not convinced that's true. How did Axl sound any better in 16/17? He has sounded the same the entire time, which is not good, except on certain songs which no matter what year, he always sounds good on (Seeker, ISE, Nightrain to name a couple). And then no matter what year, always sounds shit on (SCOM, PC, RQ, YCBM).

How many recordings from 2016/17 could you name that sound miles better than the last 2 years?

Nah, there were so many years where he nailed YCBM, PC, RQ! Obviously from 2011 on, those songs have suffered but even from 2011-2014. there were (a handful of) great performances of those songs. 

He was absolutely a stronger singer in 2016 than he was in 2018/2019... was he on top form? no, he was about as good as he was in 2014 for Vegas, or even 2012 in Vegas, but for some reason people think otherwise, because the band around him features Slash. 

In 2016 he could at least come out and sing WTTJ and nail it, he could also sing Better and TIL, by 2017 all those songs were getting weak, by 2019 WTTJ was hit and miss until the final chorus on the majority of nights. He was solid in 2016, he sounded cool in 2009/10 he sounded incredible in 2006/07, he sounded strong in the early 00s albeit his vocal were super clean, the 90s were up and down but he sounded great in 1993, same goes for the 80s a bit up and down - which could be said for his entire live vocal career really.

This wasn't too bad. That Live N Let Die performance wasn't great, but it's the kind of a song that's never absolutely terrible either. There's always those badass screams at least.

SOYL is always good and this was no exception. It may not have been the best SOYL performance ever, but his voice was pretty good and he nailed the timing, so what more can you ask.

I honestly thought that the BHL performace was one of their best performaces of that song ever. I have very little to complain about that performance

That KOHD performace was pretty basic. No much to complain about it. Not much to praise about it either.

Paradise City was pretty bad. Probably a lot better than most performaces of that song from 2019. But they really should have picked a 2016 version of that song instead.

It really wasn't that bad, but it's weird that they don't post more videos from 2016.

Sorry I meant '16-'20 only, I think people are viewing 2016 through rose colored glasses, there's not much difference in Axls vocals to me since this whole thing started, he didn't get worse, he didn't get better. I mean what 2016 show apart from Houston can you say is much better than any 17-20? 1 better night doesn't make the other 3 years suddenly way worse. If you go back and listen to Vegas it's plagued by the same things as always.

In the case of Better I would argue that actually got better from 2017 onwards because Axl figured out how to sing the chorus in his low voice, which is really much better sounding than the cringworthy falsetto.

Even sadder than these performances are the low expectations a GNR fan has reached at this point, by thinking this wasn't that bad at all.

Sorry but that was really poor.

anything u can think of is management trying to sink the band in the ocean. THERE IS NO OTHER F*CKNIG EXPLINATION. 
The people who chooses this videos either r deaft and blind or dont know crap bout guns n roses. U have amazing performances from 16/17. Powerfull ones, and u pick a show where Axl is Sick? they choose the worst of him, why? why show him like that to the world? When we all know he has A LOT MORE cause we saw it on videos or live. Argentina 16 and 17, i was there KILLER NIGHTS THE 3 OF THEM. Cmon man ! it pisses me off so much cause i fucking love this band for more than 15 years, Axl is the reason im into singing, and see they treat this band like this, hurts and is such a bunch of crap. Im not even angry bout no new music, cause thats GnR world and i know it. But this? not even able to show a good freaking video? no audio editing. Grab Fucking Tokyo or Live era and make the band sound like that on studio man ! fix the sound ! Do something ! 
God damn. Yes i just finished watching and im letting it all out. got a lot more but well.. maybe in 6 months when "the shits.. i mean the hits.. keep on coming" 

Agree, I am flumoxed...

And to think that Axl was planning (at least) yet another year of touring with this voice…
The sound sucks as usual, but that’s a standard now. Any old TV pro-shot sounds better than these recordings from a “professional management”. 
In any case, no surprises. Nothing to write home about… or to watch again.

Because @Fernando and professionalism don't work together

Being realistic often comes off as sad. But honestly crying about Axl's voice day after day is a lot sadder in my opinion. 😄

If they were gonna do an all-covers select they should've at least used one of the 2017 shows with I Feel Good :axl:

I agree, would like to see that.

They never bother going through the hours of archived footage or audio they have. They weren't even remotely sharp when picking the performances for Live Era.

Yup

Why don't we get a full show from US 2016. This is ridiculous... 

This is what happens with Axl and Fernandon't in charge.

I really hope they do a proper UYI anniversary next year, with a box set that we're all happy with. Otherwise I'm just waiting for the new SMKC record...

People seem to believe that a UYI boxset is inevitable in 2021. Locked N' Loaded came out a year late, remember? Just saying. We also might get nothing at all. But yeah, it would be nice if they did something of the sort.

I hope they release it on time, and @troccoli told us they're working on a boxset.
