Even Dream Theater hasn't done 3 hours in a row. Really if you didn't like gnr to begin w/ why post on why you hate them. I showed tons of restraint when U2 is posted on here even tho I really dislike them.
I saw Get The Led Out two weeks ago and they played for 3 and a half hours. So it really wasn't too long ago.

That's the main reason why people who complain about the number of individual solos there are in GN'R sets are retarded. It's a 3 hour show. If someone played a 2 minute solo in a 1 hour show you wouldn't complain. Multiply it up.

LOL I knew someone would say something like that soon. But still I think its a fairly accurate point. I'm a little jelly of that. Get the Led out would be pretty sweet.

And in all honesty they were not that long. 5-6 mins at the longest. I'm a big BLS guy but Zakks solos are definitely far from 5-6 mins long. This had the most solos but they were some of the shortest solos I'd ever heard. Even Axels solo wasn't long or drawn out.

It was an mind-blowing show. They dug deep into the Led Zeppelin catalog and they sounded great.

And yes, your point is fairly accurate.

I don't think tickets for Chicago are selling amazing as they had a deal going on that tickets were $20.00 a piece for seats. They aren't filling up the place.

Also did anyone see the interview they had on Blabbermouth where Gene Simmions was saying that GnR could have been the biggest band if it wasn't for Axl.

ravenheart-

they have played alot of festivals overseas for one thing, so those crowds dont count. as far as their big shows in south america...come on man, those crowds are always drooling for the big American rock/metal bands, and come out big. They're desperate for entertainment and certainly can't be as choosy as we can.

there are certain things that seem indefensible to me, and those things are where most people have had it with Axl: the insane lateness night after night, and the fact that this just isn't GnR. I, and many others, can't back this dude bc of them.

Now, the show length IS very cool. They play a great setlist and if the lateness and fakeness of the band don't bother you, then you def. get quite the bang for your buck, even withall the solos and interludes that add alot of BS to the overall picture.

And for the record, i like 7 or 8 songs on Chinese Democracy. It's just not a GnR record, it's an Axl solo album.

Cool review, good to see that idiot actually showed up on time and played a full show.

Still wanna see "GnR", but w/ his track record, I can't justify spending $ on anything Axl Rose.
