I went to this show and let me tell you-it was absolutely mind-blowing. People can comment all they want about solos and vocals but I'm telling you, being there, in the building with thousands of other fans is an incredible experience.

On the show time: We got into the venue at 10:55p and went to our seats right away just to find them. Almost immediately after, the house lights went down. I figured an hour wait at least based upon previous experience with the CD lineups and the 4/8 show, but they went on literally 10 minutes past 11-do not be late for these shows! I think that may be a thing of the past.

On being in the audience: People you never met are welling up (dudes and chicks) and high-fiving you and patting you on the back, all while everyone around you sings at top volume along to the hits. It was cathartic, like primal scream therapy or something. It was a good mix of super-fans, old school fans, and young / new fans. During the deep cuts like Coma, Double Talkin' Jive, and CD songs, the non-super fans were bopping along and cheered just as loudly at the end as they did during the hits. It was as though they were experiencing new material and wanted to be deep into the GN'R club . I mean, you can tell that people don't know the words to Coma but go nuts at the end anyway. Wink.

On the stage show: They ripped from song to song. This is not story-boarded out. Things like Slash letting his guitar breathe with feedback between songs ratchet up the intensity of every song intro. When Bach came on stage, it was as if a fan had gotten ahold of the mic. He was so much fun and the crowd was all smiles and "fuck yeah"! Anything Axl said was awesome. Even things like "Thank you" got a roar from the crowd.

Greatest show of my life. I've watched one or two videos from it, but in all honesty, I'm not that interested. The experience was so much more than what is shown on those clips. 

Seeing this band live was worth every penny.

great post. I agree with your thoughts. it was so amazing it's almost tough to describe in words, but you did a nice job capturing the feeling of being at those shows. the energy was unbelievable.

Yes. None of the videos do justice to the experience of being at those shows up close and personal!  beer
