There is nothing strange about people stopping being into GN'R. Most people didn't even start getting into it. The funny thing is watching people struggle to come to terms with their interest waning. 

Yep. I've often thought it would make a really interesting documentary actually (well, quite interesting!) speaking to really passionate GNR fans about the way the band seem to have turned into something that a young GNR would have railed against, and how this impacted on fans getting older too who very much bought into the ethos and rebellion of the early band. 

We all get older, some of us sell out and become things our younger selves would have disliked, others don't. Some try too hard to stay young, some embrace older age too readily- played out in relation to how the favourite band of their youth embraced nostalgia and how something they felt so passionately about became so predictable and corporate could be really interesting. 

Or maybe I have way too much on my hands! Anyone with any experience in documentary making, hit me up! Haha!

Sorry if this has been addressed, but is there any confirmation that setlist going around is correlated to tonight’s show? 

Not really. Maybe the fact that hardschool is listed within the setlist and not as a alternate song might be considered confirmation

But is it listed as ALT song? Or do I read it wrong?

I can't fathom that the order of the songs mean so much to people :lol: The band is adding a new song to the show, an unreleased song, something the band hasn't done since 2006 yet fans get all emo about the order of the songs :lol:

I never thought a running order of songs would piss me off so much, but after 5 years it does. It's a live show, not a record.

I'm not complaining about the choice of songs at all, could live without the covers but they play all hits plus rotating deep cuts, all good. As for new material I believe it when I hear it. I know all setlists from the past 20 years, it was mostly a core setlist with options being added later on in the tour. But how late is late enough after 5 years of touring witthout a new album.

The fact that they included Hard School in the main setlist doesnt change the fact that it's an ALT song. 

It's just for this specific setlist.

Is it just me or during the breakdown of Hardschool do you hear the Axl tracks going “ay ay ay” like one of his voice ad libs. If that’s what he plans on doing during the breakdown that’ll be a cool little throwback GNR sound.

Yeah, I hear it too.

I think they'll have one addition to the show tonight. Maybe PTU? Or did they play that before?

Maybe one of the next shows they'll have Hardschool.

Still slightly hoping to be surprised regardless!

There was a rumour like a year or year and a half ago that more vocals had been added during the breakdown part.

I kinda think the 'ay ay' parts were triggered by Melissa? Like how she triggers Axl's backing tracks on Madagascar, Locomotive, etc.

Hate the backing tracks on Madagascar.... Robins were SO much better on 2002 they sounded amazing. Axls suck on the record and live

Having exactly the same setlist structure after 5 years, is just lazy. In my case, I don’t even care that much because even if they did change it, I would’ve already memorized the new one by the time they hit my country :lol:

Regarding Hardschool, the chances of them not playing it tonight are still there, but people shouldn’t be mad at it IMO (besides the people that are actually at the show, obviously). They’ll definitely play it on this leg of the tour, so it’s just a matter of time. Does anyone remember how they debuted Dead Horse and Locomotive? I remember we found out about Locomotive because a Meegan story, but it was in the middle of the tour leg IIRC.

There’s also the chance of them never playing Hardschool at all, just playing it on soundcheck till the end of times, as a fuck you to the Village leaks :lol:

Has the band soundchecked anything since 2016 that hasn’t eventually been played live? (other than PTU and TAY) I know OMG has been on the alts list but I don’t think they ever soundchecked it.

Yeah I remember back in 2011 a really far away sounding clip of OMG during soundcheck came out and was hoping they would bust it out at some point but it never happened for whatever reason

Was OMG rehearsed or soundchecked with Axl? Because that's what makes the difference. Slither was in the alt setlist in 2016 and it'd obviously been rehearsed by the rest of the band, but wasn't rehearsed with Axl until 2018 when they played it.

They have included Perfect Crime as an Alt. Song for lots of NITL shows, but there’s no video or audio evidence of them ever soundchecking it with Axl (they did instrumentally).

Of songs that they did soundcheck with Axl, I think it’s just Pretty Tied Up and Think About You (and Hardschool).

Meegan shared some videos of the last sound check. Hard school was played and it has some CGI animations (no sound)

 

edit: it was deleted. It was some chick dancing and some lettering with the gnr font and HARD SKOOL on repeat

I don't want to sound mean, but Axl might actually collapse on stage if he tries to sing Perfect Crime these days :smiley-confused2:

I think he would sound similar to how he sounds in shadow of your love. He could go full axl/dc rasp monster mode, but probably less likely
