I really wanted to go but I'm not really that big of a GNR fan and didn't think it was worth $130 before fees.

40 songs/jams in total
9 cover songs & 2 of them have been around since Use Your Illusion so it's really only more like 7.
9 jams that aren't as long as people who haven't seen them think
31 original songs played

And there are how many bands that will play 31 songs in a set that tour? Yea thats what I thought. The 1st 2 don't even count because they are entrance/exit music. This is about as perfect as it gets.

According to setlist.fm Dead Flowers hasn't been played since '93 & Mama Kin hasn't been played since '92

Hank3 played 3 and a half hours last September. Wayne Hancock has been known to do 6 hour sets in the past.

Back when I was doing cover bands I used to play 4 full sets a night every Friday and Saturday.

I've gotten so out of shape since then, haha

It was both. Good money and songs I didn't absolutely hate.

Then the songs started getting worse and I wanted to branch out. It was fun while it lasted.
