The question of whether frontman Axl Rose, at 55, can still hit his screechy vocals has been asked and answered so often that we can dispense with it easily here: He can, though not quite with the elasticity he had when he was closer on the timeline to his early days performing at The Roxy on L.A.'s Sunset Strip.

The greater question today: Can Rose, recently reunited with guitarist Slash and bass guitarist Duff McKagan, front a band that feels like the GnR we knew even back in the '80s?

Or would we be looking at GnR through rose-colored lenses, conveniently blurring the chips and cracks in their performance?

After a solid opening set by the rock band Live, highlighted by "Lightning Crashes," we found out.
