Playing his first GN'R show in 7 1/2 years, Axl Rose does not disappoint the sold out crowd of 1800.
At 3:32 a.m., a short animation intro is shown on the video screen behind the stage. An animated Axl introduces himself as ‘Uncle Axl’ and the clip is almost a mock of all the press about him in recent years.
Robin Finck comes out on stage first and starts strumming the opening chords to 'Welcome To The Jungle' very slowly. The band breaks into the song and so does the athletically-clad Axl. Sporting silver sunglasses, Adidas jogging pants and a Chinese dragon shirt, this older and wiser Axl is better than ever.
His vocals are crisp and he still can control a crowd with passion. During songs he is running to the side of the stage to watch the band perform.
The band, consisting of Dizzy Reed on keyboards, Paul Tobias on guitar, Tommy Stinson on bass, Robin Finck on guitar, Buckethead on guitar, Bryan 'Brain' Mantia on drums and Chris Pittman on keyboards, prove their validity as a unit throughout each song.
They were tight and menacing to the ears of all in attendance.
The highlight of the show was a ‘Welcome Back’ chant that started while the band was getting ready to play ‘Patience.’
A smiling and almost-about-to-cry Axl told the crowd that he was “embarrassed.” Consisting of mostly Appetite For Destruction tracks, the set was blistering. ‘Think About You’ was played, which hasn’t been documented as being played since 1986!
The new tracks, played for the first time, were full of new sounds that were ready for public consumption. ‘Oh My God’ was reworked and has a new, hard edge that makes you cringe. 'Chinese Democracy' was written by Axl after he saw the movie Kundun, he told the crowd. 'The Blues' has a piano intro that after 10 seconds is injected with heavy guitars. ‘Silkworms’ (the title being told to me by Jeremy of the road crew), was heavily infused by keyboards and pure rock guitars.
When he introduced the band, Axl went out of his way to thank Paul for helping him live through the past 8 years. After 'Chinese Democracy,' with Brain playing a short drum solo, Buckethead struts the stage and starts playing nunchuks and throws them into the crowd.
He then throws out chocolate roses from a KFC bucket to crowd members. Towards the end of the set, Buckethead plays a short, country-western style jam by himself, with Axl dancing and laughing at the side of the stage.
After ‘Paradise City,’ Axl thanks the crowd and wishes everyone a happy new year. At 5:36 a.m., after 2 hours and 4 minutes of pure rock & roll and chaos, the show is over, leaving the 1800 concert-goers with their jaws-dropped and craving for more.
The band soundchecked at the House of Blues at 6 a.m. on Dec. 31.
