Guns n Roses concert set list
the Webmaster of MYGNR.COM
Things got fucked when my plane did not take off from Montreal to Toronto
because of the snow storm. I rented a car and drove my way to Toronto. I
arrived in the Air Canada Centre at 10:30 PM and the GNR went on stage at
The Air Canada Centre was PACKED! I mean it was a full house and the
ambiance was great!
I expected to get the usual intro (voice from the Exorcist) like at the
other concerts but we did not get it.
As soon as Welcome To The Jungle came on, I was relieved to see that the
sound system was properly calibrated. The sound was great, clear, crisp!
Axl was very talkative, he joked around
throughout the show.
He joked during his piano solo.
Axl Rose asked: "How many of you people where at the infamous Montreal
1992 show?". Lots of people yelled that they where, some people
booed. What an asshole to even bring it up...
The song Chinese Democracy
absolutely ROCKED! Axl Rose really seemed to enjoy signing this song. About
5 people asked me how come I knew the lyrics to the song. I noticed that no
one in the crowd seemed to know the lyrics to the new songs.
The most appreciated "new material" was
Madagascar, I guess because most
people had heard a preview of it at the MTV Music Video Awards.
Chinese Democracy came in second
and The Blues third.
People behaved at the concert. One minor incident: when I went to the men's
washroom, there where a few male security guards helping another security
guard wash hew face from the pepper spray she got in he face. Don't know how
that happened. The use of pepper spray by law enforcement agents is very
common in Canada, so there's no real surprise there.
The Toronto concert was as good if not better than the Illusions concerts.
Axl did say something about people trying to put him down all the time, and
I have a feeling that has been the case with the concert reviews of the
first concerts of this present tour.
This is DEFINITIVELY a tout not to miss! If you don't have tickets yet,
