Robin started with the intro to WTTJ, the lights burst onto W. Axl Rose and he let rip with the most powerful 8 words I have ever heard! You all know what I am talking about if you are any sort of fan! Then we were away and Jungle blew us all to bits, Axl’s voice – I cannot describe how powerful and raw it was, just like in 1987-1988. Once they finished that legendary smash and grab song it was straight into Easy and Brownstone without taking a breath. Everyone needed to chill a bit after that 15 minutes of pure adrenalin rush and we then were into Live & Let Die which was done studio standard with no changes to it, this was accompanied by fire balls and various explosions. All simply perfect.

What surprised me was the amount of dancing Axl did during each song and how smoothly and quickly he moved around the stage, much like a man of 25 not 45. Did not see much of the snake swivel dance but lots of one-foot stomping, moon walk forward sort of thing happening, if that makes sense. Anyway my wife thought he looked a million dollars and I thought he looked in great shape, but who cares as he was justing ripping the paint off the walls of that building.

Quick solo by Robin which the crowd loved – I have a new appreciation for this man as he is note-perfect on everything, which was a surprise to me as never been a massive fan. Guitar solo’s throughout the night did not drag at all and crowd showed great appreciation for all of them, especially the Don’t Cry solo by BBF who did it so fucking good you could easily here Axl singing it in your mind even though he wasn’t actually doing so on the stage.

SCOM came next and whilst this was great, the song is very hard for Axl these days and I don’t think he enjoys singing it, probably sick to death of it. But still great to hear it. I should add that throughout the night Axl barely spoke to the crowd but was clearly very very happy and having a great time. He intro’d the band and mentioned Perth crowd were great but Perth Dome was like a vacuum and stuffed up the acoustics a bit, however thought the set up in Adelaide Ent Centre was “awesome” he said. New song Better was spectacular and I PLEAD with everyone not to listen to anything other than a live or CD version of this song and stop downloading leaks and shit as they do not do it justice – it was fantastic and amazingly half the crowd seemed to be singing along (lots of downloading mother-fuckers amongst this crowd). This song will be a classic if the album is ever dropped on us.

KOHD came next, quite a Bluesy version as you have all previously heard, except I am happy to say that after the 4 Knock Knock Knocking On Heaven’s Doors (where crowd sings), Axl absolutely let rip with his own and it was straight off the Live Era CD let me tell you, lifted the roof and was a highlight for me amongst many. The voice, that fucking voice – words cannot describe. Quick break with Richard (Axl called him “Richie” just to be a smart ass and laughed) doing his solo which was almost getting too long but then they ripped into a unbelieveably powerful and true to form YCBM. I could picture that kid in Terminator 2 doing his thing as they powered through this song. Frank on drums is pure thumping power, especially in this song where the drummer has such a major role. Definitely another major highlight.

Dizzy jumped on a Piano and went through a 5 minute solo which was without doubt the best solo I have heard, anywhere, anytime on any instrument! Anyone doubting his role in this band should punch themselves in the head as he played key role all night and his work could be heard clearly. Massive cheer at the end of his solo followed by a very happy bow and wave to the crowd by Dizzy. The other band members seem to really love his solo and his work in general. Tall man too. The solo sounded like Let It Be from Beatles but apparently it was Angie from Stones. It was great. 

New song Blues next and again, cannot be appreciated unless live or in studio/CD version – great work and Axl’s voice strong and smooth (not husky at all).

Out Ta Get Me was as you would expect, with all attitude and power and Axl just turning back the clock to 1988 with this one, giving the crowd the big bird (finger) and generally looking angry and illustrating his disdain for anything resembling authority.

 Axl wondered out to Piano in middle and started tinkering with keys and getting a feel for it while BBF and Richard slowly played down their guitars until it was just Axl on Piano then into November Rain. Crowd singing in this song the most of any of the night, and although I like this song as much as anyone, I was shocked at how good he sang this and how close to the original it was, with the guitar solo’s top notch. This performance illustrated how close he is to being at his best.

I.R.S. was good but music a little over-bearing as struggled to hear Axl at stages in this song. Great that he was rolling out some new stuff though and we all lapped it up.

Bumblefoot Solo – love this man and his talent. He is so Slash with everything he does and his moves and technically he is second to none in my opinion.

 Sebastian Bach is BACK! And he and Axl swap lines for this version of My Michelle from previous performances I have seen and it was superb. What shows up here is that Axl is so powerful vocally at this time that he can easily out-sing a man with a voice like Bazz! However Sebastian was as energetic as ever jumping around like an 18 year old again. Axl smiling and enjoying this with Bazz and generally seems at ease.

Patience – of course crowd singing along with every word but what was great is that they did not impact on Axl’s voice at all and another studio quality version, just with a little more electric influence these days. Frank on drums still kicking ass, as he did all night long.

Liquor & Hoares – Axl rolled out Mexico story about too much booze down there and then mentioned they picked up a hitch-hiker being Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys – this guy looks like a chubby kid with nerdy haircut and big coke bottle eye glasses, but the song itself was really good and Axl and Bubbles did their duet of this song for about 7 minutes I think, Axl loving every minute of this. The song is somewhat similar to Bob Dylan’s “Lets Get Stoned” and it added to the night for sure. Bubbles can also kick ass on guitar. Funny looking guy, way out of place GnR line-up of tattoos, long hair and general “jam it” attitude but I loved this and crowd gave huge cheer when song finished.

Nightrain – the performance of the night without doubt, the voice, again that voice was simply unstoppable during this most legendary song and we could tell Axl loved singing this. POWER, POWER, POWER!

This is where we got a great surprise of the night, the boys letting rip with both Chinese Democracy and Madagascar and they both sounded incredible and went over great with the crowd, although few people new the words to these. My friends who are not as big a fan as I am thought all the new stuff sounded brilliant and could not really work out why it has not been released yet. They will sell millions based on the new stuff we have witnessed tonight.

AND FINALLY, THE MOMENT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR MY WHOLE LIFE:

Paradise Fuckin’ City – without doubt the loudest  actual music of the night, Axl’s voice lost on occasions in all the noise but still the greatest song ever made in my opinion and the work at the end by the guitarists and Frank simply incredible, the power they generated in the fast ending that is Paradise City had to be heard and seen to be believed., along with fire balls and confetti pumping out over the crowd.  In great GnR tradition Axl let go with “Adelaide – Good……………………………Fucking………………………………….Night…………………………Yeah! My life is now complete!

Boys took off for a minute than back for the standard bow allowing crowd to acknowledge a truly incredible performance. 2 hours and 20 minutes of power! Axl than grabbed mic’ for the last time and yelled Aussie, Aussie Aussie  to which the crowd responded in kind with Oi’ Oi Oi (he did this 3 times in a row) as we do down here. For non Australians this is a sporting chant that happens at a lot of sports events where Australian sportspeople are playing. Axl was pretty happy with this effort, waved and he was gone! 

What a night, not one person complained about 11pm start as we all knew this would be the case, and only a few people with small kids left before the end. 15,000 people in what is a fairly quiet conservative forgotten city in Australia got a once in a lifetime chance to see the kings and his men. It was better than anyone could have expected and I leave you all with this – Axl’s voice is back to its peak, better than 1991-1993 model and almost back to 1986-1990 standard.

Cheers………………Brett, Adelaide, Australia
