Why do GNR need opening acts?

I think this is a valid question. Becouse most of the bands are getting boo'd off stage and they are rarely well recived. And it's not like GNR needs someone to warm up the crowed. And I say this becouse of two things

1. There is at least an hour from the opening act goes of stage till GNR goes on. So whatever they warmed up, has chilled down at that time.

2. Crowed goes nuts when GNR hits the stage anyway. JUNGLE BABY!!!!!!!

Another thing is that I could understand it if it where to draw other people to the show. People who went to see the opening act. But seriusly. Who the hell want's to she the shitlist of opening band they have now? It's like 2% goes for the opening act.

so that people have something to listen to till gnr get there

Yep,agree. Also, this is a good chance for some bands to get known.GNR were openers too in their early days. I haven´t heard the current openers but according to the reviews from people they don´t seem to be good.

Well if they need time to get ready. Well start to get ready earlier and let the people in about half an hour before the show. (if there was no opening acts there wouldn't be any reason to arrive early, would there???)

bc axl is old now he forgets a lot of shit. Sometimes he forgets to go on stage or even show up. So they give him four hrs or so to remember he has a show to do. That or he just doesnt like to show up on time and wants half the fans to leave early or miss their buss/ride. ;)

they need opening acts but stuff like rolling stones, queen, metallica or red hot chili peppers ! classic rock needs classic rock

Yeah because they'd choose to open for a band less popular than them.

That's not the point he was trying to make. (I think)

GN'R needs band that playes that kinda music. And not shit metal and "scream into the micophone til you faint" music.

I saw Prince two years ago and he had no opener. The show was supposed to start at 7:00. The lights went out around 7:45, and then Prince rocked the house for nearly three hours. It was the most energetic show I've ever been too. It was nice not to sit through a bunch of crap waiting for the headliner. I'm a huge fan of live music, but I don't want to sit through three hours of bands I have no interest in to see the band I paid good money for show up at midnight. GNR should go on at 9:00 and play for three hours. That would make a lot of people happy. Except maybe Baz.
