Before starting Better Axl tells the crowd that when they were here back in 1993 the crowd was out of control to the point where he had to throw buckets of water on the whole front row then he thanks them for the warm NZ welcome. Before starting My Michelle, Sebastian tells Axl that he brought him some Brazillian Fiesta Blend coffee, Axl reads the packet out loud in a very sexual manner then tells the crowd to ask for it by name and that they're only talking about coffee, after that he says this aint Greys Anatomy before doing a really loud/evil laugh. Before Nice Boys Don't Play Rock N Roll (encore) Axl says that hes been talking with the guys in the back and that they're calling him kinder and more gentle, Axl laughs about it then says theres some wild elements from the old days GNR crowds except theres not as many people trying to hurt each other, after that he says he hopes everyone is having a good time tonight. Before starting Chinese Democracy Axl asks the crowd if they mind if the setlist is made a bit longer, the crowd start yelling out YEAH! which quickly gets turned into a NO!, got a laugh from Axl.

Always wanted a pair of those D&G wrap around sunglasses from that ‘06-‘07 period just like Axl’s, but could never find them for sale! 

Maybe was exclusive design to Axl.

Axl received a letter during 'Sweet Child O' Mine' from a fan, but didn't open it on stage. Robin came once in piggy-pack on Frank's shoulders on stage. After a solo, Robin forgot to pick up his guitar, so he had to run backstage. Axl again spoke about the "downloading-motherfucker" stuff.

July 2, 1991 - Riverport Amphitheatre, Maryland Heights, MO

Notes: Infamous riot show. Before 'You Could Be Mine,' Axl mentions how the line "With your bitch slap rappin' and your cocaine tongue you get nothin' done" was in the AFD liners. Axl tells a great story about taking a bus to St. Louis when he was 17. During 'Rocket Queen,' Axl spots a fan taking pictures. He tells the security guards to take the camera from the fan, which they do not. Axl then jumps into the crowd and punches the fan! He then gets back on stage and says, "Thanks to the lame-ass security, I'm going home." The band leaves the stage and a riot ensues.


July 2, 1992 - Lisbon, Portugal

Notes: Axl falls down during the middle of 'It's So Easy' and sings the rest of the song lying down. He also sings the next 2 songs lying down. Someone in the audience lights up some fireworks after 'Live And Let Die' so Slash tells the crowd to calm down. 'Double Talkin' Jive' is dedicated to St. Louis because it is the one year anniversary of the riot. 'Civil War' is started after 'Double Talkin' Jive' and then stopped because of fireworks in the audience. It is played in full later in the set. Before 'Paradise City,' Slash thanks the crowd for “making this the strangest show on the European tour!”


July 2, 2006 - Nijmegen, Netherlands

Notes:  The show started around 10pm and again Izzy joins the band for some songs. Before 'Better,' Axl says, "Thank you, I'd like to thank all of you for coming out, we hope that we will enjoy ourselves this evening. Thank you all to try and help out. This is a song that uh, is put together by Mr. Robin Finck. I'm sure a lot of you motherfuckers have already downloaded that shit." After 'Think About You,' Axl says, "Calm down. I'll tell you what the Swedish police told me they said "Calm down", then they said "You're going to be arrested", then I said "you're a fuckin asshole" .....or something like that."

July 10, 2006 - Rockwave Festival, Terravibe, Malakasa, Greece

Notes: There were quite a few banners around: one had "It's not a problem U can stop it's rock 'n' roll," and was signed by the band back in '93, and another had: ''It's been 13 years of silence - welcome to Greece again.' Axl referred to these signs during the show and mentioned they were much appreciated. After 'You Could Be Mine,' Axl started singing 'Light My Fire' by The Doors, and sang the first two verses and the chorus. He also whistled the Pink Panther theme before 'November Rain.' The crowd started a 'Civil War' chant. Axl smiled and said, "What are you chanting? Something like C.V.R.?" During 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door,' Axl said, "Now, for several years now, we've played these shows all over you know, and I've seen these signs, I've seen these signs that say GREECE LOVES GUNS N' ROSES. It's much appreciated, but now we gotta put you to the test... you wanna help me out here? We do it four times, I sing one, you sing one. If we ever put out another live record Bob Dylan can get another check." Axl ended the show wrapped in a Greek flag, screaming, 'Good Night, take care of each other, and now get the fuck outta here!'

@Blackstar - Did you go to the concert :D? After this concert, they didn't come to Greece anymore ? It looked like Axl really enjoyed himself at this concert.

Yes, I did! It was an enjoyable show. And yes, they haven't come to Greece since, either GnR or side bands - I don't know why.

But at least I got Izzy both times I've seen them here (I was also at the 1993 show in Athens) - that's something :)

It's strange that they weren't in Greece in 2012, that year they toured all of Europe.
