Longest show I've personally witnessed so far, because I'm not Japanese. And easily the best sounding as well. Axl's voice was superb for the whole set apart from the beginning of Madagascar. When he held the really long note at the end of This I Love it was incredible.

Also, Axl had a fractured shoulder and had spent half the day in hospital having an MRI etc.

Pretty heavy. The sound overall was the best I've heard for them.

I can just imagine how pissed you were to get out of the show at 1:35am. Was getting home terrible?

I don't care for a Richard Fortus guitar solo tbh.

Yeah, I've long felt he was the poorest of the three, but actually, although it was quite long, it was superb. He used to just do the same noisey one for a few seconds, then a blues one for a few seconds, and that would be it. This time it went on for a good three minutes, included Stinson, Ferrer and Thal backing him up, and was actually a really good solo spot. Really enjoyed it.

Alright. It's a Bumblefoot solo song. He sings it instead of having a solo spot.
