How were the Gunners? :unsure:

Also found out Dimma was at the Metricon Concert as well.

Three great Tigers all at Metricon - Campbell, Dimma and myself!! :eyes

It was great. Thought they were better than in 2017. However I've seen some complaints about the mix and Axl's voice and they were legitimate complaints IMO. Slash is the undoubted star of the show and think if anything he gets undersold as a guitarist. Disappointingly they dropped Coma from the setlist.

I was there as well, not too far from the front.

Slash is a beast. He held that show together for 3hrs. Axl did (I read) 14 wardrobe changes throughout the night, undoubtedly to get rid of sweat, but also to rest his voice. I noticed they dropped some lyrics/content from some of the songs too.

I thought overall the show was good. I was definitely enjoying it, even though someone decided to throw down the other side of our aisle. My wife (not a gunners fan - just likes their hits) came along as well, and she was pretty impressed at the show. As JB said, Axl's voice was thin when trying to do his high notes/screechy type stuff. His lower notes/deep voice seemed to be really hold together well. He can still hold a note, and he still has power, but the range sounded smaller. He was however into the gig completely. High energy, and you could see he was enjoying himself. Duff looked super relaxed - including a cameo with him singing and Slash joining in on backup vocals for I wanna be your dog. I've loved the Gunners ever since I was 11. This was a definite chance to reminisce,

3hrs was a big show and a big tour for their age. They held it together well.

Sounds like a good gig. Not a huge fan of Guns n Roses but I have seen the Stones a couple of times - we all know they're old, they bring some back up singers in which helps a lot with the ageing voices. Voices take a pounding with years on the road, it is damned hard once singers get a bit older to be able to hit the notes, the wear and tear is unavoidable - get in some support!

Saw The Offspring at John Cain Arena last night.
They were awesome. I love it when you are surprised by a gig.
Fantastic fun as they rolled through the hits. Great drummer smashing the skins.
Highlight being Noodles taking the *smile* out of Freddie Mercury's memorable Live Aid performance..:LOL:
