Toronto Concert Review #1

By 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 10:37 PM.

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, click here to get your tickets!
