Saw the boys on Tuesday night in Brissie and gotta say i was impressed. I caught them back in 93 and they were badass although a little sloppy. On this tour they are clean and tight. Even Axl’s voice holds up for most of the show.
They played all their hits and didnt muck around with them. It was a shame Izzy didnt tour as he was always my favourite back in the day but they lost very little with Fortus who was brilliant and kept it tight. Duff and Slash were the highlight, stomping around the stage and peeling off all the licks and riffs like they had never left. The drummer was good but was clearly the weak link and if they do go back in the studio id suggest replacing him with the power of Sorum which was missed a bit.
All in all though it was a great show and for those going to Sydney this weekend you wont be dissapointed. Plenty of the old stuff that had the big crowd going off for most of the show and Slash’s work on all the mega hit tunes was pretty much flawless. Good night out.
