Saw em in 88' at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix. I had the chance to see them their first time out at the Mason Jar in 87' but I blew that, talk about regrets. On the positive side I did see them in a pretty small venue as Celebrity Theatre only holds 2,650 people and I had third row tickets. Sweet.

Count your blessings you saw 'em when you did. 1985-1990 was their prime. Everything after was damaged goods.

Funny how things have come full-circle.  G 'n' R opened for the Cult back in 1987 and this year the Cult returned the favour. My how time flies.

Ah yes The Cult, another excellent band with conflict resolution issues. Can't we all just...get along?

I really like Guns n Roses. Everybody likes their music. November Rain is my fave track. But i just do not like Axl. It is pathetic how they could not even get together and accept awards etc. He seemed to fall out with everyone. Then he goes and slots right in to guest for AC/DC. Because he was such a, Best not say. It just stopped me really liking them more.

Well, at the time Axl & Slash were barely speaking and Axl was avoiding Stephen at all costs. He doesn't have any baggage with the guys in AC/DC, so joining them for several months came together rather quickly.

Guns n Roses have annoyed fans at a concert by not knowing what City they were in. And by being late. Nothing changes there then. Brilliant artists. They act like total Muppets. That has stopped me really,really liking them tbh.

Saw em in ‘93 in Manchester UK. Came on three hours late and did an hour and a half set at a stadium gig. They were shite. Massively disappointing. So I opted not to see them on the recent tour. Ticket prices were daylight robbery. 

Going to see Slash in Feb and I can’t wait. Hi solo stuff is terrific

Browsing through this thread I see some people here have complaints. I saw G'n'R at Madison Square Garden in October 2017. They were kick ass! It was one of the best shows I've ever been to. They played three and a half hours with no opening act, were on time, and definitely knew where they were. They did their major and minor hits, some tunes I wasn't familiar with, and a bunch of covers. Yes, it was expensive--maybe around $375 altogether. 

I was thinking of getting a ticket to their new tour, but I'm afraid it couldn't possibly top the last one.

I like GnR in general but TBH they really are just a Nazareth reboot. Axl sounds so much like Dan McCafferty he could be McCafferty's shitty, extremely less talented, abusive clone. Always thought Axl was the weakest link for an otherwise stellar band. Saw them live twice in the 80's and they put on a really good show both times though Axl pretty much loses his voice by the fourth song. Someone should have taught Axl how to control and preserve his voice live. I am more a music guy so a weak singer does not bother me too much as long as the instrumentation is excellent.

Uhhhhh 

GNR didn't perform in Manchester in 1993. They did do Milton Keynes in 1993. And they did Manchester in 1992. If it was the 1993 gig, that is 100% understandable. It was part of the Skin N' Bones Tour, where they literally played only for the money.
