Does anybody knows if there's a wardrobe in the palace, which entrance to go to and when the doors to the palace opens?

What do you mean by the term "wardrobe"?

As far as entrances and times, the doors open 90 minutes before the first act according to the Palace which would mean they'll open at 6:30. Pretty much everyone uses the West entrance for some reason.  If you're looking to get to the floor fast I would recommend the East because it's on the opposite side and you'll still be able to get to the floor from that side.

Still not sure what you mean by a "wardrobe" though...  Smiley

Oaky Thanx......I thought of a place where you can put your jacket during the show. Maybe wardrobe is a wrong term sorry for that....Coat drop off should have been a more appropriate term.

Did anyone else at the pre-party find the WRIF chick to be the most annoying woman ever to grace a microphone??

We ended up going to The Palace much earlier then we wanted to because she was SO annoying.

cant really remember, but i think it might have been 8, 9, 10, and 11:30 for GNR (estimating).  When I got there at 8, the opening band was already playing, and they had about 20-30 minutes inbetween the opening bands and a lil longer for GNR.

Here's a review I just found, pretty decent:

http://www.theoaklandpress.com/stories/112806/loc_2006112807.shtml

Web Exclusive
Guns N' Roses, Tenacious D Rock The Motor City

Web-posted Nov 28, 2006

By GARY GRAFF
Of the Oakland Press

Forget the BCS standings. On Saturday night, the Detroit metro area hosted a battle for the title of Most Awesome Rock 'n' Roll Band on the Planet.

Advertisement
Duking it out in separate corners were Guns N' Roses, which really did set╩ rock's standard for awesomeness in the late '80s and rocked the Palace of Auburn Hills with a very late but fierce display of muscular hard rock, and Tenacious D, the comic metal duo of actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass who had a devilishly good time╩convincing the crowd at╩Detroit's Masonic Temple Theatre that it was "the greatest band of all time."

Like many college football polls, no clear-cut winner could be determined, but both shows had abundant merits tempered by a few shortcomings.

No discussion of a Guns N' Roses concert can be had without mention of the time issue, of course. The group, whose sole remaining founding member is frontman W. Axl Rose, hit the Palace stage just after 11:30 p.m. Saturday - more than 70 minutes after former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach finished his opening set and late enough for one to see Tenacious D and still make it out to the Palace in time for GNR's start. But it also gave the already fired-up but sparse-looking crowd of just over 7,500 time to get a bit drunker and rowdier and start a few more fights during the wait.

Rose made light his reputation during the two-hour and 15-minute showing, explaining that "for me, this is morning. Consider me your Captain Kangaroo. I'm just here having a good morning workout time with my friends in Michigan." Maybe so, but it was late-night for the crowd, and who, after all, does Rose's self-involved temperament really serve? Certainly not any underage fans who may have had to leave due to curfew restrictions - especially if they drove to the Palace. Certainly not any of the fans who had to endure the lengthy wait.

And certainly not the band or the show itself. Saturday's crowd was a shadow of the size of audience GNR used to command, a function of the band's diminished footprint since its last set of fresh material was released in 1993. And you can bet some of the reluctance to turn out for the show was a function of the near-certainty that Rose and company would be late - assuming they played at all (and last-minute cancellations have been known to happen) or didn't bugger out early, as Rose did during GNR's 2002 visit to the Palace.

As it was, GNR gave the faithful the works this year - and as potent a rock show as any band turns out these days. It was heavy on favorites - "Welcome to the Jungle," "It's So Easy," "Mr. Brownstone," "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Patience," "Nightrain," the epic "November Rain," "Paradise City" and covers of Paul McCartney & Wings' "Live and Let Die" and Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." GNR also offered a generous helping from the long-awaited and still-unreleased "Chinese Democracy" album, including the biting title track, the industrial-flavored "Better," the melodic epic "The Blues," the charged "I.R.S." and the moody "Madagascar."

Changing tops a half-dozen times, Rose looked leaner and even more animated than when GNR was last here, and his trademark wail as in good form. The band, particularly longtime keyboardist Dizzy Reed and more recent guitarists Robin Finck and Richard Fortus, proved able replacements for the original GNR cast, although the solo spots that padded the show - a gratuitous hard rock indulgence in the best of circumstances - seemed particularly superfluous given the late hour, and significant clumps of fans trooped out as the show went on so that maybe half were around as the confetti swirled overhead as the band played "Paradise City" when most bars were making last call.

And that late start is for who's benefit again?

I was there it rocked hard! Definetly a decent crowd of 8,000 being the fact Michigan is stuck on bullshit hip-hop and stuff, it was wild and at times Axl blew my mind, also the band was good. I can't wait for GNR to come back again, hopefully they do an outside concert at Pine Knob next time! Or even a smaller venue like Royal Oak music theatre that way we can be up close and personal.
