Just a quick review on the Guns N Roses concert last night in Chicago. The band
actually started almost on time. They played very well and I was very impressed with
Duff on the bass. I didn't know he was that good. The lighting and video were
awesome. Top notch. The sound on the other hand was quite bad. All we heard
most of the night was Slash's guitar. The drums completely disappeared on multiple
songs. The vocals were more or less gone until the last 4 or 5 songs. The guitar tone
sounded very boxey until the last few songs when the sound guy finally pulled the
low mids out. The vocals, when you could hear them, were also very boxey. There
was no clarity at all to Axel's voice. Considering that Clair Global provided audio
production for the tour and it's the highest grossing Live Nation tour for the last 2
years, you would think that the sound would be in the pocket, dead nuts from the
first song on. No so last night. Guns N Roses needs to rethink their choice of sound

THE SLASH SHOW
Axl frankly sucked. His voice was terrible and he had absolutely no chemistry with
anyone else in the band. The rest of the band was pretty good with Slash being great
It should just have been called The Slash Show since he was the only one worth being

They were great, but this was a rock concert and security wanted you to stay in your seat. They made the experience terrible. Ruined my special moment.

MIXED BAG. FIRST TIME SEEING THEM. ONCE IS ENOUGH.
been to over 500 concerts but this was the first time seeing GnR. with no adler or izzy, i was a little tentative going in- i saw a live GnR show on tv about 10 yrs ago and axl was god awful.
having wolf van halen as opener (i'm a HUGE VH fan) tilted my decision to go. and i love wrigley but this was just my 2nd concert there (fall out boy was the other. wish i had seen the police there but tix were too expensive for me at the time).
it was the perfect night- weather couldn't have been better. thing is, i spent $150 for a seat (section 228, as i recall) and it's so far away, you end up watching the video monitors all night, so you feel a little detached from the show on the stage.
axl was mostly...alright/passable. some he struggled with, some were decent. i didn't have a high bar for him going in. i was expecting worse. duff sang along with axl a lot more than i expected, which maybe helped the cause. duff's in fantastic shape, btw.
i think the lack of addler's raw drumming hurts. and izzy was their best song writer. puts a bad taste in my mouth that there are just 3/5 original members.
i looked at recent shows before this and they play the EXACT same setlist. feels lazy and like a cash grab, tho the guys looked to be having a good time, for the most part. axl wasn't a diva or anything and they went on on time at 730pm.
setlist could use work, imo. they have 3 'chinese democracy' songs on the setlist, where one would be enough. i like the song, "better", but axl struggled with that one a lot. "rocket queen" is my fave GnR song and they kind of ruined it with 2 way overdone wanky guitar solos by each guitarist. slash wanked a lot during the night. imo, he's kind of over-rated/generic.
they played "slither" from velvet revolver, which actually was a pleasant surprise and axl sang it well. i wanted to hear my michelle, out ta get me, anything goes and pretty tied up, none of which were played. they played some weird cover no one knew or cared about and another cover by the who that could've been skipped. i also could've done without the nockin' on heaven's door or live and let die covers but i understand why they played those, at least.
all in all, a mixed bag, like i said. i wouldn't go see them again. once was enough...unless they play a better/different setlist and axl's voice miraculously gets better. also, adler and izzy would make things right.

Seen g n r in Cincinnati 6 years ago…..phenomenal….could honestly be the best concert I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to a lot. Columbus Ohio September 23 2021 HUGE DiSAPPOINTMENT!!!! They could have done a killer 2 hour show with all the hits instead they decided to do a 3 hour quite boring show…..lot of unknown songs and lots breaks where axl wasn’t even on stage.
Crowd was awful….they might as well have all been sitting there watching it on tv at home. would have been no different then being at the venue where they all sat down. The crowd had very little reaction! A concert I was looking very forward to was a complete disappointment and honestly a waste of money.

MUSIC-GREAT. SINGING- HORRIBLE
Worked the concert. Might have been where I was standing but Rose was horrible. Slash can still play. Music-8 stars- singing 3

JUST AS SHITTY AS THEY WERE IN ‘88
Went with a a friend of bill and sadly disappointed. Worse than they were in ‘88 with Aerosmith. Wish they sounded anything close to vinyl.
