Guy on Twitter telling me he’s a bigger fan than me because he goes to as many shows as possible. 

I ask him why? All shows are exactly the same. 

 

No they are not some shows are enchiladas night other are extra cheese dip dish pizza night!

Looks better than fat Axl with grandma hair. Is that really saying anything though?

Has to be, doesn't it? I haven't been paying attention, but I can't imagine grandma Axl wants to stray too far out of her effort free zone.

6 CD songs at the last Toronto show, wish I was there. Would happily trade all the 2017 gigs I went to to have been at that one. Even from YouTube vids I can tell he sounds much better than at Montreal. Seems like the last few gigs of this arena tour have got Axl going again, similar to how the Vegas 2014 shows were a great end to a generally poor year.

yeah, it was equally shit as Vegas 2014, but had a special vibe, because Axl (way past of his prime and his "vision") just played a bunch of deep CD cuts

 

I'd trade a used condom for the ticket:smugpepe:

 

Seriously, wtf, man?

 

Axl can't sing anymoe (with GNR)

Who cares?

 

There are no excuses anymore

 

AXL/DC or fuck him

 

I can't even possibly fathom how can anybody would pay for this shit multiple times....

Just can't

TWAT and Prostitute are two of my favourite songs, that's why I'd like to have been at these shows. I get why if you're not a fan of those tracks those shows wouldn't be worth it, but those two songs mean a lot to me. I'm not a fan of Yesterdays but I can understand why people were happy to have GNR play it again.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A man's reach should exceed his grasp.

 

Note to Axl Rose, front man for Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Guns N' Roses: That cliche does not apply to vocals.

 

Rose's consistently inconsistent vocals - on those rare occasions during a marathon 31/2 show at Quicken Loans Arena Thursday when they were audible - alternated between off key, screechy and just plain out of tune. His voice marred an otherwise stunning performance by guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and their backing band, especially guitarist Rich Fortus, who proved himself to be every bit as much a Guitar Hero as Slash.

 

It was at times painful to listen to Rose try to reach the high notes his nasally tenor made famous on songs like "Sweet Child O' Mine'' and "Welcome to the Jungle,'' or rely on a falsetto that had more cracks than a sidewalk in the Great San Francisco earthquake. Not that it probably mattered to the 12,000 or so who packed The Q. Most were GenXers there to relive their own heydays as much as that of GNR.

 

Hopefully, they had better luck than Rose.

 

It is especially disappointing given that a little more than a year ago, Rose was very nearly perfect as the fill-in for ailing AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson when Angus Young brought the band to town. Nobody's going to outdo Young in his own band, and he most definitely was the star of the show, but Rose's vocals on the AC/DC tunes were spot on and powerful.

 

Not so Thursday night with his own band.

 

It began with "It's So Easy,'' continued with "Mr. Brownstone'' and "Chinese Democracy,'' stumbled in "Jungle'' and fell apart by "Double Talkin' Jive.'' And, lord, that was just five songs into set that stretched past 30!

 

"You Could Be Mine'' paid the price, and a cover of Wings' "Live and Let Die'' was, in a word, mangled. Live and let it go next time.

 

To be fair, the celebrated GNR version of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door'' came out just fine, but that was clearly because the key was dropped to a more manageable range, and his cover of the Jimmy Webb tune made famous by Glen Campbell, "Wichita Lineman,'' benefited from the same move. It helped that Rose didn't both attempting his trademark sing-songy calisthenics on either tune.

 

What makes the vocal failure so depressing is that the musicianship remains top-notch - this may be the best overall group of musicians that will play Northeast Ohio this year.

 

And it all begins with Slash's ability to turn his Gibson Les Paul into an instrument of mass construction is. Fortunately for fans, the video cameras shooting the show were UHD, so every seat in the packed arena had vivid, sharp images of Slash's almost effortless mastery of the fretboard with what may be the fastest left hand in rock 'n' roll.

 

It worked even better because of Fortus' own skill on the ax, and THAT was because the two shredders worked in tandem to complement each other, often adding harmonics as well as rhythm. The end result wasn't a duel, but a team in which each helped the other to shine.

 

Too, McKagan remains one of the most solid bassists in the genre - very nearly Slash's equal on his instrument - laying down lines that are as steady as they are rapid and mesh perfectly with the beats of drummer Frank Ferrer, who's been on the kit for the band since 2006.

 

Keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese add pizazz and solid backing harmonies to round out the band.

 

If only they had a singer.

Yesterdays is one of my favourite songs. It means a lot to me. (so to speak) Still, Axl can't sing it anymore

Nice to see an honest review. Hopefully this guy doesn't get harassed for his truthfulness.

Truthers already on the loose:pepe:

 

Probably hate mail him, prank calling him, LEA will give back her used incontinence pad and mail it to him etc.

The latest Blabbermouth review is good too. 

 

Long story short. Reviewer says GnR needs to focus on quality over quantity. 

 

He says to cut out the Cd songs and worthless covers and do a kick-ass two hour show. That 99% of fans don’t care about Wichita Lineman and Black Hole sun. Nobody wants to hear Duff sing. And ditch the six CD songs.

Chinese songs should stay. In fact, I think Axl should cuck them some more and throw in Shackler`s and IRS. Covers need to go. Slash also should stop his mindless guitar wankery.

I can't deny that, but I still would want to be there to hear him pull out the screams for TWAT and Prostitute.

IRS was fucking epic in 2010, but probably best it isn't brought back:

IRS would be perfect for his Pepe rasp he’s been trolling the normies with

 

seriously its the only Chinese song he’s not trying to overcompensate on

 

the only downside is it is faster tempo so his fat will get in the way

You see that's the problem. He won't

Btw that IRS just reminded me, how many years were wasted completely, even in the fat (but not completely shit) period

 

Can you imagine? DJ Ashba got the last good Axl vocals GNR year

Fuck me, you know how i hate Chinese Democracy, but i could agree with you... i'd rather hear CD songs than Wichita Lolman or blakhosa or the usual shit they play

If Axl really want to cuck his fanbase and his band"mates" and couldn't pull out a deep cut from the classic records, then at least throw in more songs from his own record:shrugs: 

 

But...

I think we can also agree about this one:

everybody who might waste a single cent on this band is an obnoxious moron. period
