No bouquets for late Roses

THE Guns N' Roses concert was still ringing in the ears of some residents yesterday, who were clearly happy to see the legendary group fly out of Townsville.

The Bulletin was inundated yesterday with calls and texts from residents near Reid Park who were frustrated by the noise and late finish of the concert.

Hermit Park resident Mike Shearer said he was forced to turn up his television as the Gunners' music dominated his lounge room on Wednesday night.

"It was far too noisy and it went well outside the time it was meant to go," Mr Shearer said.

"If that concert was being held in my neighbour's place, the police would have confiscated the hi-fi set, so why should they get away with it in Reid Park?"

Mr Shearer, who has also been vocal about the noise generated during the Townsville 400 V8 weekend, said Axl Rose and his crew were far worse. "With the V8s, the noise goes up and down, but the concert last night tended to stay noisy and they were still firing off rockets up until midnight and setting the neighbourhood dogs going," he said.

A Townsville City Council spokesman told the Bulletin before the concert promoters were licensed to continue the show until 10.45pm and council and Liquor Licensing would monitor noise levels.

Mayor Les Tyrell said yesterday he understood why residents were angry after the concert stretched on until midnight.

"Guns N' Roses came on late and the concert ran late which is a concern to us and something we will talk to promoters about, as it is not fair for residents on a midweek event," Cr Tyrell said.

"The remainder of the feedback has been positive, with most people generally happy with traffic management, amenities and the state of the venue."

Police said there were no major incidents as revellers behaved themselves.

Cr Tyrell said despite the noise and time breaches, the event was a "coming of age" for Reid Park.

"We have had staff on site at all of the major events Tim McGraw, QNI Christmas Party, V8s and the concert last night and we are looking at the good and the bad to make sure we are continually improving the venue," he said.

"In spite of the recent rain and the complicated logistics of moving events in and out, Reid Park is holding up and really coming of age as a concert venue."

The Gunners took to the stage more than an hour late.

oh finalmente qualche review che "sfonda" i Guns  #4

Guns N' Roses concert leaves fans fuming


Fans at a Guns N' Roses concert in Townsville, Australia this week say they were left disappointed and angry by the performance.

They’re calling for their money back after Axl Rose and his band came on two hours late and appeared to be miming.

“I think it’s an imitation band – it is absolutely terrible,” one concert goer said shortly after the concert began.

Audience members reportedly began leaving the event in droves as the sound problems continued.

“Tell Axl I said get stuffed!” one concert goer yelled at a TV camera as he left early.

“He sux, it sounds like shit,” exclaimed another.

Some fans did enjoy the performance and went to the airport to say goodbye to the rockers.

Concert promoters say there will be no refunds.

Gunners’ appetite for disruption in Townsville

A furore has erupted after Guns N' Roses’ show in Townsville in Far North Queensland last Wednesday (December 1).

The band, who have a reputation for being chronically late, took to the stage at Reid Park over an hour late, which meant that the show went well past its curfew of 10.45 pm.

One resident, Mike Shearer, told the local newspaper he had to turn up his TV to drown out the concert, and grumbled, “They were still firing off rockets up until midnight and setting the neighbourhood dogs going."

Townsville Council was inundated with complaints. Mayor Les Tyrell said that he would talk to promoter Andrew McManus Presents about the show’s late ending, admitting “it was not fair” as it was during the mid-week.

But Tyrell talked up the show, saying there were no problems with the crowd and everyone seemed to have had a good time.

Frustrated fans initially began chanting “Bullshit!” and “Go back to America!” while they waited for Axl and co to start the show.

But when they did, most agreed the band kicked butt. They kicked off with Chinese Democracy and Welcome To The Jungle and put on an exhilarating performance which led to their being called back for an encore of Don’t Cry and Paradise City.

il penultimo articolo o è inventato o la gente non è a posto con la testa....cioè spendono i soldi per andare al concerto e dopo si lamentano dicendo che è una band finta e imitano quelli vecchi? ma non sapevano che non c'era slash? fanno pena...sempre se è vero....

Oppure quelli che dicono che canta da schifo....ma porca miseria, ci sono in giro centinaia di video per testare la voce di axl e anche qui spendono i soldi e poi si lamentano facendo finta di nulla?

Se ti devi lamentare a priori fallo da casa. Si hanno i mezzi per sapere le cose prima, senza essere presenti.

Se a me un gruppo non piace non vado manco a vederlo. Tempo e soldi sprecati. Cioè mi dovrei sbattare sapendo che mi devo poi lamentare? non sono mica normali questi...

Axl si è sfondato talmente tanto che è un grande solo per il fatto che canta(e alla grande) e si muove
