Drop:
You Could Be Mine
Rocket Queen
Better
Slither
Civil War
Don't Cry
Madagascar

Add:
Pretty Tied Up
Bad Obsession
Down On The Farm
You Ain't The First
Perhaps / New song
Don't Cry (Alt lyrics)
Locomotive (w/ Melissa on backing vocals)

 

Bring back the acoustic set (which they kinda did last year) but maybe do it as the first encore, or at least don't do it right after November Rain. Play So Fine or Raw Power with Axl every once in a while. Rotate some UYI/TSI deep cuts with stuff like Ain't Goin' Down or Black Leather.

This post wins the thread.

Personally I wanna see Out To Get Me, Madagascar, and There Was A Time at one of the London shows – I'll be at both.

 

Have never heard the latter two live, so that's my reasoning for those

I’d keep Maddy, but apart from that I couldn’t agree more

Drop:  Any cover that isn't KOHD (say what you will but the general audience does dig that one) and Slither

Add:  Pretty Tied Up, Locomotive (more often), Move to the City

The issue is we never really get big overhauls. We’ll likely get one or two changes a tour, probably whatever the new song will be, and a new Duff cover. Anything more likely won’t happen :axl:

I'd love to hear Oh My God and There Was A Time. I wish they played Shackler's live again too, and if so, please, for the love of God have Richard play the solo and not Slash. Wish that went for all CD songs. 

They should drop some of the overplayed AFD stuff.

I don't know what TF "I got you" is, and at this point I'm too afraid to ask...

Probably I Got You (I Feel Good), the James Brown song. Tbh, I wouldn't mind seeing that return

If they play Oh My God and There Was A Time I am going for an extended piss break.

Swap out You Aint The First (snore) and replace with Dead Horse or The Garden

Knowing that this band really does not change up set lists a lot, and that Axl's voice is what it is at this point (I think news reports of another big name singer's vocal issues put into relief just how lucky we are that Axl sounds as good as he does at this stage), I would really only make one absolutely "essential" drop: "Better". That pains me to say, as that's one of my favorite all time Guns N' Roses songs of all time, from any lineup, but it just seems to throw him for a loop these days. There are actually songs in the set lists that are harder to sing that he consistently sings better (no pun intended) than "Better," but that song seems to throw him for a loop. When I saw them last year, I tried to keep an open mind regarding Axl's vocals, and was actually fairly astonished at how good he sounded (admittedly, this was towards the end of a tour run), but there was no disguising that he really struggled with "Better", enough that my "casual" friends who attended the show with me noticed it (and they otherwise thought he sounded amazing). 

In terms of "adds", again I'll be realistic. I imagine the best we'd get would be finally seeing "Pretty Tied Up" revived, or seeing "Dead Horse" and "Locomotive" played more consistently. Other than that, the songs remaining are either: (i) ones that Axl probably could not perform with consistency (not being mean, just honest) and (ii) songs that were never really played in a live setting in any era of the band. If I went for "dream" adds, I'd have to go with "Reckless Life" (for an old GN'R chestnut) or "Street of Dreams" (one of the Chinese Democracy songs that I actually think this lineup could really work with in a cool way).

You Ain't The First is really underrated, I'd rather hear that than something like Yesterdays or Used To Love Her.

The Garden would be cool though.

I thought this was a serious post until I saw the Locomotive Melissa vocals comment, and realised you must be joking :lol:

When they played it in 2019 they had studio vocals piped in, at least during the chorus. Fuck that. If they're gonna play songs that require lots of vocal layers they may as well turn up Melissa's mic.

And Duff's too. Just kidding.

On a serious note, I'd rather hear Melissa's vocals than Duff's. I'd imagine Melissa will do some backing vocals on the next album, even if it's just moans from some of the stuff Brain recorded. Hahaha
