Just got back from the weekend. Thought i would tell you what i saw.......
I sensed it would be an interesting night during QOTSA. Josh Homme mentioned something about GnR which led to a ring of boo's around the whole arena. Knowing Axl, i really wouldn't be suprised if he decided here to be late.
They were an hour late. I was expecting it, but the majority of the crowd were booing and chanting for slash. When they finally came on, i had to move because there was so much booing during Chinese Democracy.
The only word i can use to explain what happened next is..... AWESOME!
The band was great, i wasnt sure what to expect from Axls voice, but that scream at the start of Welcome to the Jungle, i was amazed.
Highlights for me were This I Love, Nightrain and You Could Be Mine.
At the end and the sit in the crowd was definetly divided, between 16 year old chavs and overweight iron maiden fans singing 'your not singing any more' and the GnR fans singing 'let them play'
Axl had a rant, were the idiots in the crowd thought it was directed at them, but i reckon it was towards the organisers. If this is GNRs responsibility then i take this part back, but the screen broke, the sound at times wasnt loud enough and a few times the pryos were off time.
Having said all this.....I am never going to forget this, it is possibly the best thing i have ever seen. Fuck Blink 182.
