then after short break suddenly came on the stage Sebastian Bach /hopefully
it was him!/ with his band, and played some early hair n`heavy metal Skid Row classics like"I remeber you". He was just fabulous, so dedicated and has
pretty warmed up the crowd while waiting for GNR. He madly rotated his mic
on the cord....Just GREAT.
They finally finished before 10pm, then stage was re-arranged for GNR. I
remember when one of the technician guys uncovered GNR drums with its GNR
logo, crowd got pretty excited, screaming and chanting GNR! Well everything
was done and ready to blast the show off, but no Axl yet. "Where the fuck is
he?" Again delay??
SO another waiting for another hour or so. Lights went finally down at 10.50
pm. with INTRO to the Jungle, then appeared AXL with very, very loud scream:
Do you know where the fuck U R, Prague??? He wore pale-yellow jacket, black
shirt, jeans and orange! shoes. He was in very, very good mood, very lively,
his voice was just thrilling, strong and clear! Stage was not very spacious
for his suddens runs ,but despite of this...he enjoyed himself very much.
So did we! After Jungle came Easy and The Better. Robin, Richard, Bumblefoot
and others were pretty good tuned. After non-stop-3-song playing Axl
apologized "for little delay of your entertainment" and mentioned FIFA World
Cup 06 in Germany where USA lost their match with Czech Rep. 0:3. He laughed
and said us... You fuckers..:) I dont recall exact setlist, but there were
some very funny and interesting moments l... e.g. 1) fans were throwing
some bracelets /not a wristbands/ on the stage just when Axl sang, he leant
over and collected all them from the stage floor, put them on his right
wrist and smiled to us... one bracelet even hit him on his forehead.. Tommy
laughed on his behalf..:) .. or 2) there was a czech national flag lying on
the stage.. Axl picked it up and stucked it into back of his jeans and kept
singing. Wonderful communicaton , very strong!!!...or 3) near me was a
half-drunken idiot, who tried to insult Axl verbally by yelling at Axl
between 2 song / cant remember which ones/.. "Axl, fuck you, you fuckin
asshole!!"... and Axl answered.." So as you, you pink asshole.. and laughed
again, and said afterwards " its kinda universal language for fuck
off.""..... Hahaha, I was so pleased to hears this from Axl...After this
that mohafu** sucker finally calmed down, otherwise he would be probably
kicked out by fans l.
What was the strongest moment for me personally was when IZZY fuckin
STRADLIN appeared on the stage, introduced by Axl.. Crowd was chanting
He was obviously moved and smiled.. and play with the group I
think About You, Patience, Nightrain nad then came back at the and of the
show to contribute on Paradise. Very strong experience!!!
Needless to say ..as to Axl.. it was juts him... his movements, runs, jammin
with the mic stand, throwing it away.., his tatoos, incredible and strong
voice.. generaly in very good condition. Bumblefoot played whole Donty cry..
amazing performance..., Robin and Richie played smashing "Beautiful" and
some doodle during show as well as Brain did some perfect drum solo,
appreciated even by group members /maybe not planned/, Dizzy as usual..
blast off the piano play on The Blues...and at the end ...after Paradise Axl
threw his mic into the crowd!! WOW!!. I wish I could have it.
The show is now over, but strong experiences has remained inside, will never
thanks to AXL and GNR for Prague extraordinary show!!
