According to the Download Festival Website...

http://www.downloadfestival.co.uk/news/newsitem.asp?id=291

At "12 Midday", it says that there are rumors Kid Rock will be joining GnR tonight for some tunes, as well as a possibility of Duff.


Here's the exact wording:
Quote
12 Midday

Sniffed out some juicy backstage rumours. Apparently Kid Rock is confirmed to join Guns N' Roses tomorrow night. In other GNR-related news, I hear we may also be joined today by my old mucker Duff McCagan. He has been joining Alice in Chains at some of their US dates and they're on the main stage here today...

FANTASTIC....This was a great concert...It had some really really lows and some really really Highs..
Most of the 1st half of the concert had some techinical difficulties (Sound). Then at one song Axl slipped (Almost fell down) and he gave the middle finger to a roadie. After the song he stopped the concert and the whole group went backstage...The roadies came back to fix the floor or something...At one song maybe YCBM Axl didn't finish the song and the band had to sing to finish it....
Then at another song Tommy threw down his bass and left the show....That happened cause he received a fucking piss bottle...

At these points you could hear mixed audience responses with some booing and bootles on stage...

As i was dissapointed Suddenly MAGIC Happened...Izzy came out...From this point onwards the concert was great. No sound problems, no booing, Axl in great mood singing the songs and generally awesome performance...
Izzy played for like 5-6 songs (Think about you,Patience,Nightrain,Used To Love Her, Paradise City)...Izzy looked very happy...
Sebastian bach did the usual my michelle too...
Not only the above they fucking played 5 new songs (Bettter,Blues,Madagascar,IRS,Chinese Democracy)

Izzy seemed to enjoy it and he even introduced Used to Love her...He was interacting not only with axl but with other bandmembers too ( like tommy)...He seemed to be part of the band , like he never left...At the end he saluted the crowd as part of the band...Even Axl chanted Izzy,Izzy,Izzy and the crowd followed chanting his name too.

The crowd and the group were very very happy and i really believe that it was the best show of the new GNR..A lot of variety,incidents and the longest Show/Setlist so far....+ fucking IZZY ...

I am prety sure this could be the best show of this summer tour...

Check this out?

Got back from Donny today - I've just lived a dream of mine for the past five years, seeing Axl and the band for the first time.? I was, needless to say, blown away!!? ? peace

Good setlist, five new songs all sounding completely awesome.? Madagascar gets better with every listen and I heard Better all the way through for the 1st time, that songs kicks ass.? IRS kicked huge butt too, can't wait for the album it's gonna kill.

Let's get a couple of negatives out the way - with this being a festival crowd there were a lot of GN'R n00bs all chanting for Slash, I even heard one say that Slash has a weird beard? Roll Eyes? Some idiots were berating Axl, but I ignored them as much as possible and joined in with the "Axl, Axl" chants.? There were also of course the technical issues plagueing Axl (does this happen at every show?!!).? A few people whinged about the interruptions and the jazzy interludes but fuck them, it was all good.? Tommy throwing his bass and it hitting the cameraman was one of the most bizarre things I've ever seem, but I must stress that he took the mic later and apologised, saying he didn't mean to hit the poor bloke.? A few more idiots whinged when Tommy said he'd go home if another bottle touched him but I applauded Tommy.? I also had to endure the shocking BFMV and Funeral for a Friend beforehand; Clutch would've led into GN'R very nicely? Smiley

They appeared fairly promptly which I was glad about cos I was fucking knackered having stood through the previous 3 bands.? When Axl appeared I screamed my lungs out for about 10 seconds, I couldn't believe I was seeing him.? From them ripping into WTTJ to the end I was totally impressed.? It had it all - tantrums, surprises and above all some fine songs.? The participation in Used To Love her was quite different, but very cool, with Tommy taking the drums for the song!? Izzy coming on blew everyone away (kept the haters happy too!).? All band members played amazingly, Bumblefoot is gonna be a new guitar hero for aspiring kids, I'm sure of that.? This was a truly great show, if it comes out I'll be getting it straight away.? When bucketfan says they played Smoke On The Water, it really was only Izzy pissing about and brain and Tommy joining in.

I could go on but I'll just finish by saying GUNS N FUCKIN ROSES? yes

had the best week last week with hammesrsmith and then THIS!  sorry again for not making the meet-up.  I texted anselmo - but maybe his phone died.  Had the good fortune to meet Izzy backstage - hear him strumming a guitar and playing a little Nightrain next to me!  Argh!  He was super nice.  The gig had me gutted and elated all over the place.  Such a rush of emotions.  I honestly thought November rain was stunning and bumblefoot was out of this world -as was Robin - and Richard, and tommy  - oh axl's VOICE!  he looked so energetic dashing about the stage and after all the issues - i thought it was absoutely credit to them as a band that they pulled together and overcame the shit and TRIUMPHED.  it was truely amazing. i shed a tear!  they just blew me away. 

I doubt my pics will be any good - but will load any that are.  the set was amazing - I feel so lucky to have been there. adn the c0ck sucker behind me got his karma after shouting for Slash - and then getting drenched with a bottle of piss from someone right next to him! brilliant!

Just my little input too...

Did anyone see the text I put up on the screens?  It was during the afternoon, giving a shout out to all you guys!

I also saw some of you people, I'm sure of it.  On the Sun, about an hour or so before the gig, I saw some guys hanging about below the disabled viewing platform - one wearing a htgth tshirt, with short curly hair and glasses.  I was gonna come say hi but I was on the viewing platform and it was getting really busy so didn't want to lose my place!  If that was you, though...did you meet Finck in the crowd?  I saw you talking to someone and having a photo taken with them and it was only when they walked away that I thought 'shit, was that Finck?'.  If so, my rock n roll foot will be in the background of the photo!

As for the gig itself...I nearly fell over when they came on early, wtf!  Seemed strange seeing GnR in full daylight.  The crowd were a bit shitty, but I suppose that's to be expected from a festival crowd and not a pure gunners crowd.  I heard a lot of Axl hating and people slagging off the new band despite saying they'd never heard them...I'll never understand that attitude!  They were just like 'they'll just be crap cos they're not Slash n co'.  Fucksake, why can't people respect them for who they are and not for who they're not.  Slash is gone, people.  Suck it up, listen to VR, don't go hating on a guitarist just cos he ain't Slash.

Was a little concerned with the 'technical difficulties' and thought it could lead to trouble as the crowd were half delirious already from so long in the sun!  I think it was a mark of how much Axl has dedicated himself this time when he kept coming back for more, despite the fuck ups and the negativity.  I'm not sure he'd have put up as much a little while back. 

Thought people were a bit harsh booing Tommy for shouting about getting covered in piss - it's not particularly pleasant and I don't think there's any excuse...if you don't like a band, fuck off.  Nobody's forcing you to listen.  Just go home, don't fuck it up for the rest of us. 

Axl's voice was amazing, much stronger and more stable than in 2002, imho.  The set was good in all and I enjoyed the new band's spin on the classics but I am probably with a lot of people when I say that I'd love to hear a bit more variation in the old songs played.  There's enough of a back catalogue to keep it fresh.  Can't really complain though, I reckon they're doing enough to keep most people happy, I'm just a die hard gunner who's gonna see them a lot and wants a bit more variation Cheesy 

Seb Bach and Izzy, amazing.  I nearly wet myself with excitement Cheesy  I am loving Bumblefoot too, I have a feeling that it was only his solo that saved the gig descending into anarchy after Axl's tantrum.  Finck's amazing too, he's just a really fucking good guitarist with great presence.  I think I'm liking him more now than in 2002...he seems to have gelled more, if that makes sense.

My boyfriend has absolutely no time for GnR as they were and was dreading having to see them.  However, he was blown away by the new band, he loves Bumblefoot and Finck and rates them above Slash and Izzy, even.  He is even now looking forward to Chinese Democracy as he was well impressed with the new songs!
