G N R: STILL CONCERT SUPERSTARS
G and R put on an amazing show! They played straight for just over 3 hours. If this is how they are in their 50’s, I really wish I saw them a few decades ago. The performance tonight was tight and they never slowed down. Rose is ever such a talent. The young rebel is still visible in his eyes and voice. He takes over the stage even when walking offstage. He can’t help but be charasmatic. Slash is also a powerhouse who owns the stage. He looks the same as he did in his younger days, except not the skinny frame of his wild days. He looks healthy, yea! This is the 3rd time I saw him play. Always sublime in his musicianship. One odd flaw could be found with the focus of the camera for the overhead videos. Maybe someone had a foot fetish because they kept spotlighting the performer’s feet. Duff was walking on the upper platform while playing and all they showed were his sneakers. They showed Axl tapping his feet so often that I could count the stitches on his boots.

GNR BETTER THAN EVER!
Loved every minute of it, and especially how they added to Chinese Democracy songs to make them even better. Wish they would have brought Dizzy, Frank and Melissa out of the shadows of the back of the stage so we could have seen them more clearly. Axl's voice was as great as ever, and Slash, Duff and Richard continued to rock us with their amazing talents. Never quit smiling the whole evening.

A five star review seems so cliche that I tried thinking of reasons to bring it down to four stars. Guess what? I couldn't think of any! Some gripe that Axl can't hit his banshee like screams like the old days. My answer? The guy is 55 years old!! Many of his peers are unable to sing ANYTHING like they could in their youthful prime years. Axl still brings it, though, and sang for the maority of the band's three + hour show. Slash brought a prescense that only he can deliver. Duff, brings the punk rock feel that somehow finalizes the GN'R sound. His excellent cover of the MISFITS tune "Attitude" was a true highlight for me. Holdovers from the "lost years" are drummer Frank Ferrer and guitaristRichard Fortus. I have been critical of the Chinese Democracy record, but Slash & Duff bring new life to those songs, especially "Madagascar". GN'R is now sober, and even though Izzy & Steven Adler aren't back, I forgot to miss them. An incredible show from a band that isn't done yet!!!

All I can say is thank you.... fantastic show!!! 3 plus hours of pure rock!!! So glad G&R put their differences aside, came together and put on one hell of a show. To all the people out there, if you have the means i highly recommend going to this show.... Just do it... Again, thank you to G&R!!!

DECENT BUT A BIT STERILE
Had great seats (6th row center) so to see Axl and Slash so close up was a great experience! The sound guy was weak--the last minute of November Rain saw Slash's guitar totally overwhelmed by the cacophony of other sounds. Axl was darn good but not like the old days. He bit off the end of Don't Cry instead of lingering. He looks good--def lost some weight since the beginning of the tour. Slash was his monster self--theme to godfather was ridiculously good. Duff was perhaps the most involved with the audience and seemed genuinely glad to be there. He did a punk song that was cool--brought to mind Dee Dee Ramone early days. Drummer was weak. I'm no expert but even I could tell he screwed up on at least 2 occasions including the beginning of the end of N. Rain--only what some call the greatest 2 mins in rock. Crowd was weak. Between songs it was quiet except for me screaming "Axl" as loud as I could. Some couldn't be bothered to respond during Heavens Door. Night Train was crescendo.
