My Guns N Roses review (Coldplay gets a mention)
Went to see Guns N Roses last night at Burswood Dome here in Perth.
What a boganfest. I was really surprised at the long lines out the front, normally its a smooth flow into the Dome, but then understood when we got to the point where security were patting everyone down.
Both support acts were on time so it looked promising for GNR to come out at 10.30. So starting at 11.05 was a good thing. The vocal mixing was shocking. Axls voice sounded excellent in some songs, and others (especially Knockin On Heavens Door) you couldnt even here him during certain parts, as if his microphone wasnt even on.
Apart from some minor instrumental fuckups, and some feedback during Sweet Child O Mine, the music sounded great. Some of the solos, especially Dizzys, were really good. And the setlist was really well mixed aswell, not just saving all the great classics till the end.
Axl was quite a showmen, had lots of energy. I kept waiting for him to spack it about something but it never happened. And it was good of him to come out at the end and thank everyone for being such a good crowd and to perform an entire gig. Gig finished at 1.10.
I thought the crowd could have got a bit more into it. Everyone was shy of singing or moshing to much. I thought the crowd at Coldplay got more into it!
Highlights for me was Live And Let Die, November Rain and You Could Be Mine. Overall I thought it was a fucking great show aswell. And anyone who doesnt decide to go to the shows over east on the fact that its 'Axl and a cover band, not GNR' is robbing themselves of a great gig,
