    Default Guns N Roses at the Forum 12/21/11

    Yes, I'm ashamed I'm going, but does anybody know the "scheduled" time when Axl and his group of hired professionals are going on tonight? Thanks

    I'm proud I'm going. Most the reviews have been great and can't complain with a 3 hour arena rock show. GNR has been going on between 1030-11 every night...so I'd expect it to be the same.

    Thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to it!! Love that they are playing Estranged and Civil War on this tour. I was listening to some clips on YouTube and it seems like Axl has his voice back.

    C'mon Faxy, I was just being sarcastic. I am far from ashamed that G'N'R were my band in high school. I'm very excited to rock out like its 1991 again.

    They started at 11pm when I saw 'em in Kansas City last month.

    Axl looks like Yosemite Sam now.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Have fun. Not joking, they're my favorite band. I'm jealous. I missed the last Minneapolis show to attend a Packer Viking game at Lambeau

    This should be interesting. I avoided going to the last shows at Gibson, but I'm not made of stone. I can't believe it's been almost 20 years since I've seen (I was going to say them) him.

    Here's hoping Axl's voice is in good shape tonight.

    Show last night was great. They took the stage right before 11pm and played til 2am. Axl sounded amazing (as he always does) and the setlist was a wonderful mix of classics and a few newer tunes off Chinese.

    I've seen the "new" line-up 2001 in Vegas, 2006 at KROQ Inland Invasion and 2006 at Universal Amphitheater and I think this was the best they sounded as a whole. In addition to hearing all the Appetite classics it was great to finally hear "Estranged," "Don't Cry," and "Civil War." Those are 3 of the best GNR songs in my opinion and they all slayed.

    My personal #1 moment was the end of the main set concluding with "Nightrain." Axl let it rip on that one like it was 1991....

    Say what you will about the new band, lack of original members, no Slash etc. but it was refreshing to see an in-your-face 3 hour rock show in an era where there are far too few.

    Agree with 90% of this. The only issue I had was the rediculous amount of solos. We get it, the band can play their instruments really well. Besides that thorough, it was a great show!! Axl was in top form and the set list was nearly perfect. Now if we could just get them to break out some more obscure UYI material like Coma, Locomotive, Perfect Crime, and Right Next Door To Hell. Nicely done Axl and co. Nicely done

    I agree the solos slow down the momentum of the show...BUT it has always been like this. Axl needs his time backstage between numbers for whatever reason. On the UYI tour bootlegs/video I've seen...Slash gets like 1-2 solos per show, Matt Sorum had one, Duff would sing a cover song etc....it's just part of a GNR show to have this...though I do agree it's excessive (but what about Axl isnt, lol)

    I'm interested to see if they leave the giant stage show behind because they are playing a smaller theater in Phoenix aprox 5,500 capacity. I hope not.

    I went to Adler's Appetite about a year ago and they started with this. One of my personal favs.

    Then I got drunk enough to set my shirt ablaze while still wearing it
