Las Vegas 2016 [no label, 2CD]

“A Dream Realized…”, T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada; April 8, 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording.

And here’s one for the fans.

Thanks to Limulus for sharing the show at Dime.

Limulus noted:

- First official GN’R Re-union show with “The Big 3″: Slash, Axl, Duff [they did a little warm-up gig in the Troubadour on April 1, 2016 though]
- Axl had injured his leg and was confined to David Grohl’s 2015 live performance throne.
- During the band introduction Axl refers to Slash: “And i think you know this guy: I don’t know what it is, but it’s weird and it’s pissed off and it calls it so SLASH!” - which are about the exact same introduction words from the famous Ritz’88 show!
- Before “Theme from The Godfather” Slash gets an extra introduction from Axl: “And a man who needs no introduction but gets one anyway… ladies and gentlemen: Slash!!!”
- first time Slash played on Axl’s songs: 05) Chinese Democracy, 12) This I Love, 20) Intro/Better
- “Coma” = first time live since April 10, 1993
- “Better” has a dark new intro

  2. This version of GnR is 60% full. Also like some many bands the supporting musicians out number the original members. Double Talkin’ Jive indeed…

  3. Thanks for posting this BigO…. however… Axl sounds old and decrepit… his voice is horrible, he should knock it on the head and retire. The classic GnR will never be again, even if you have Slash and Duff.

  4. AXL sounds GREAT!! Come on, Slash, Axl an Duff together. I admit, it would’ve been better with Izzy, but what a great performance! Nobody wants Adler on drums. He wouldn’t last a week.

  5. Grace Slick said it best, Old rockers should just hang it up and take up painting like SHE HAS or needlepoint or other rocking chair activities , Very similer to The Stones/ Led Zep/ whats left of The Who ecc. You can never recapture a place in time. Certain artists and their music age better than others, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney have managed to pull it off somehow although still not as good as they were in their primes. At least Robert Plant has the good sense and dignity to continue to refuse these demands for Zep reunions ,He realizes what Mick, Keith, Pete. Roger, and Axl dont ,that you can never recapture the past

  6. Something very sad about 60 and 70 somethings trying to act 23 again at a time when they should be bouncing their grandchildren on their knees

  7. These nuts are bouncing on your chin while you’re on your knees.

  8. Who is this faggot idiot Moron, or whoever he is.This is a music blog asshole ,if you dont agree with someone fine but make a point dickbrain

  9. Cloudfare has been very frustrating to deal with sometimes comments dont show up right away or at all in some cases, know others have been frustrated as well in trying to leave comments. Then you have low IQ fools like this Moron person. Why cant cloudfare censor him and people like him from polluting blogs like this and ruining it for others who like to discuss music

    By Wade on Apr 23, 2016

  10. While i agree that Axl and company arnt what they were and The Stones / Who and other old rockers arnt what they were, they are still light years better than the mainstream artists of today and with legends dropping like flies this year, should see as many as you can because you never know who will be next to go, also agree this blog would be better off without idiots like this moron person,been following this blog some time and have never once heard him say anything insightful about music, he just trolls so he can make vulgar comments sort of like a middle school kid who craves attention
