Guns N Roses -- Buffalo, NY -- July 25th, 1992

So I decided to go to Setlist.fm and see if they had the set lists for the first metal/rock show I ever atended and they did. This was the big co-headling stadium tour they did that summer. This happened just a couple of weeks before my 14th birthday and still remains my favorite show i've ever been to. My dad liked GNR so he was cool enough to take me and my brother to it

Metallica:

Creeping Death
The Shortest Straw
Harvester Of Sorrow
Fade To Black
Sad But True
Wherever I May Roam
Of Wolf And Man
For Whom The Bell Tolls
The Unforgiven
Bass/Guitar Solo
Welcome Home(Sanitarium)
Master Of Puppets
Seek & Destroy(with like a 15 minute sing a long it got a little boring)
Whiplash
Nothing Else Matters
Am I Evil?
Last Carees
One
Enter Sandman

The source I got this from has Shortest Straw after the Unforgiven but both my brother and i know for a fact it was played second. Overall an excellent set and experience. I've seen Metallica 4 times since then and this is still my favorite show from them. Just an awesome performance the band was just at the top of their game at this time when it came to live shows.

Guns N Roses:

Nightrain
Mr. Brownstone
Live And Let Die
Attitude(Mistfits cover)
Bad Obsession
Double Talkin' Jive
Civil War
Patience
It's So Easy
Welcome To The Jungle
Drum Solo
You Could Be Mine
Slash's Guitar Solo
The Godfather Theme
November Rain
Sweet Child O'Mine
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
Don't Cry
Paradise City

Awesome show from GNR as well. The same goes for them as it does for Metallica neither of these two bands could be beat at live performances at this time. Unfortunately not too long after this all of GNR's problems started and I never got to see them live again. Which is ashame becasue they had taken over the world at this point but Axl had to go nuts and let it slip away. Slash fucked up the begining to Sweet Child so Axl had him stop and he said "Slash Fucked Up" and then he got the crowd to say "You fucked up" to Slash it was kinda funny. Then they restarted the song. GNR didn't take the stage til at least over two hours after Metallica finished. The show ended around 2 A.M.

You're not gonna see bands co-headline like this anymore and have both of them give the fans over 2 hours each. Faith No More opened but I couldn't find the set for this show. I remember they did Caffine, LOS, SYD, Midlife Crisis, Epic, We Care A Lot and that's all I can recall for sure.

Sorry for the long thread. Thanks for reading about my first Rock N Roll experience
