His voice sounds poor ok it's been a while since they last played but hopefully he doesn't go down the route of Vince Neil  where he destroys the songs by singing like an injured cat ,I was surprised he sang Jungle so badly as usually he nails it regardless but he may have had some technical issues, it may take a few gigs for him to get up to par  but I think that AC⚡DC tour a few back took a huge toll on his vocal chords and he hasn't  consistently sounded good since then.

His voice sounds like itís gone forever. Even during jungle he doesnít even tryÖIím good with it, i knew it, but itís sad that he doesnít care anymore, itís pretty clear. Heís not even singin, just gasping for air after 2 songs. Donít try to explain or find excusesÖenough for me. After all this rest you still have no voice ?.  Hope theyíll put out something new in the future, thatís it.
No. Just no. hihi

His voice was terrible at this show, guys.

No excuses and please donít even compare it to 2017 shows (which were a huge downgrade from 2016ís shows)

There was absolutely nothing wrong with his voice. I was up front in the PIT. His mic was cutting out randomly throughout the songs. A good example was during Better. I heard him hammering the lyrics but they didn't come out over the sound system. The "gasp of air" people are referring to is him not choosing to sing those lyrics because they were vocally intense. OR the mic was cutting out. He used those moments to communicate with the sound guys. You can see him by the drums looking to the side stage,  talking into the mic, pointing around, and like he's explaining things to some one. It seemed like he was talking to the sound people more than singing.

He gave up the vocally intense lyrics after Better. Just YouTube Jungle. He didn't even attempt the opening scream and did the ending using very clean and safe vocals.

I hope they get things fixed for the next show so he can give 100%.

I saw them at Voodoo Fest in 2019, and it was really depressing. The first two songs, Axl sounded amazing. Then after that, his voice was shot and he sang in that embarrassing helium voice. I brought my girlfriend and really wanted her to experience the brutal power of this band, but it was a mess due to Axl. Now, the crowd seemed to have a good time and most of them were likely casuals and didn't care. So that's good. It's a show and if they were entertained and had a great time, that's all that matters. But people really need to stop waiting with bated breath for the beginning of a new touring cycle hoping that he will have returned to form. It ain't going to happen. The past is the best predictor of the future. He just sounds terrible. But I am happy for the people who went and had a great time. Life is short and if this brought you joy, that's the point.

I just watched the video for NR, and he was absolutely having monitor issues, IMHO. He is looking off to the side of the stage, shakes his head "no" with a look of frustration, then shortly after that says, "that was a little better" while looking to the side of the stage.

I went back and watched the Vive Latino show right before the pandemic shut everything down, and he sounded no different than the last time I saw him in person. There's no way his voice changed in that time period with zero touring short of injury or illness.

Yeah, he has had to change the way he sings since the '90's. But, the way he sang before is what caused him to develop nodules on his vocal cords and have to postpone shows on the Metallica tour. There's no way to sing the way he used to and not risk vocal injury.

During Civil War, he kept looking to the side of the stage, talking into his mic, most likely to the sound guys. His vocals were completely inaudible at the end. IMHO, there were sound issues.

Maybe Axl wouldnít have these technical issues if he participated in the soundcheck.

No but it's pretty obvious from the footage on YouTube that he wasn't singing very well he even skipped the intro to Jungle which is very odd never heard him do that before and he struggled with a few other songs including You could be mine which I think they should drop as he ain't able to sing it anymore.

The show started off okay.  Axl's voice was decent until Better imho.  Better was a train wreck as far as vocals.  Although I was a little sad that Hardschool wasn't played, I'm still glad I got to see them after such a long pandemic.  But it was a very predictable show.  I also scored one of the Hershey limited edition lithograph posters.  
I wans't be there sinve Covid started...What is "Hardschool"?
Also it is great that GNR started...Do not complaining...It is great to see them live and ready for rock...
Was stadium full,or there were some Covid restriction?
I don't think you are cpmplaining...
And thanks for info bro

Sorry if you think I was complaining.  I said it was a great show and I'm glad they're active.  Hardschool is one of the rumored new songs that was rehearsed at one point but never released.  This was my first time posting here in a few years, so sorry if I'm a little rusty with the etiquette here.  I was just excited to see GNR again.

I watched a few Instagram feeds last night and was not thrilled.

I know, I know....first show, pandemic, rusty....

I love the band and am willing to overlook certain things...

Axl sounds like mickey mouse sometimes...no Bueno.

I noticed it alot at the SiriusXM concert a few years back...he just doesn't have that range anymore....and it was obvious last night.

The crazy thing is I love them so much....I DONT CARE....lol

All singers lose some of their range with age. Having said that, there's not a dramatic difference in a year with no touring and wear and tear on the vocal cords.

Can't wait to see them Thursday in NJ....I'm hoping for the best.

This will be my 8th time seeing them since '89....taking my 16 year old son....his first concert....ever

From experience, Axl always sounds better at the venue....no bootlegs ever do him justice.

Enjoy!

I find audience recordings hit and miss. There are times when all I can hear is people screaming.

I have a few of those myself. Particularly from before the release of CD. It was a way to listen to new songs, but at the cost of piss poor audio quality.
