The Palace concert was all that one would expect from GnR!!!
It was an intense blend of musical greatness from Fink and Buckethead,
infused with the screaming goose bump causing lyrical excellence of Axl
Rose. Axl was energized and sounded fantastic, hitting his patented high
notes and running around like he never missed 10 years.
The facial expressions and showmanship of AXL was what I always knew and
dreamed it would be. Of course Axl and the supporting members of GnR were
late coming on, but hey some things never change and quite frankly
I was standing about a foot from the barricades were my friends and fellow
GnR apostles had to interlock arms preventing drunk assholes from pushing
there way in front of us, well at least they showed some life. Most of the
half assed "fans" that showed up shouldn't have been allowed in the fucking
arena, they didn't deserve to be graced by Axl's vocals or the riffs and
pure excitement the show should have inspired.
The Palace was not only quiet, but it was disgustingly unmoved, by the Rock
City resurrection of Axl. IT WAS PURE ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN. Sure, it might
have started late, had some technical flaws, occasionally, and missed the
Paradise City encore, but I wouldn't have had it any other way, it was a
TRUE GnR show. And for all you fake mainstream fans, thanks for fucking up
the atmosphere, for the true fans you have waited for almost ten years.
GUNS N ROSES AND AXL FOREVER!
