Well, I just had my
face completely torn off and shredded!!! Not to mention, slightly toasted
from the pyrotechnics. I could actually feel the heat blast every time the
bombs went off!!! I was that close.
That concert ruled far beyond my already high expectations. The Air Canada
Centre has a seating capacity of 19,800 and it was almost full. Not bad Axl.
Mixed-bag of people attending with lots of younger folks. Lots of hot women
shakin’ their booties and showing their titties for the big screens. That
was a nice treat.
Axl, sorry to ruin it for the pundits and "so-called" journalists, is back
and he’s not back in a small way either. Everyone in attendance tonight was
more than overjoyed to have their ‘screaming-banshee-super-freak’ back on
stage doing what he does best. In my opinion he’s doing it better than ever.
I think Axl’s killed off a lot of the demons that once plagued him. He seems
more relaxed and a lot happier than he used to be. He most certainly was
enjoying himself at this show.
Axl came out in a white #26 Toronto Maple Leafs jersey and he wasn’t wearing
a headband. He was wearing a long chain with a big silver cross though. He
welcomed everyone to the jungle and started things off with a few big bangs.
His hired guns definitely have their shit together and are performing
extremely tight. I’d say they’ve got their road-legs functioning. After a
few more killer tunes, the living legend spoke. He mentioned how he’s been
following the Leafs and he was wondering how the team managed to stay
focused with so many hot women around. He also made a comment about the
little pre-concert show that some of the women in attendance were so nice to
put on for everyone. He said ‘there’s a lot of hot fuckin’ women here
tonight.’ This guy’s fuckin’ funny. He then made a crack about David Lee
Roth not being too busy these days. There weren’t any real technical flaws
that I noticed.
The band seemed to drown out his voice a few times but nothing serious. They
do play extremely loud. When Axl did the band introductions, he called them
the magnificent seven and then he started whistling the tune from that
movie. He laughed quite a bit. I think Dizzy got the most applause. Just
before November Rain, Axl played some tune about an asshole and then he
stopped and said he was sorry. Wrong tune. Then he mentioned the amount of
hot women again and said he was having a hard time staying focused because
of them. I think Axl probably likes Canadian chicks. Hmmm, do you think he
had a hard time gettin’ laid after the show?
Killer version of
November Rain, by the way. Bucket-Head’s show was interesting. After that
Axl came out in a blue Leafs jersey and asked the crowd if anybody here
tonight had been at the infamous Montreal show. He laughed and mentioned the
Vancouver riot and the one in Ohio. "I’ll have to discuss the Montreal
incident with my good friend Lars, some other time." The band
launched into My Michelle after that and afterward, Axl
mentioned the chicks again. He said he saw a chick in a catholic school girl
mini-skirt coming down some stairs while he was singing My Michelle and how
he felt that it was fitting for the tune. ‘Very appropriate, don’t ya’
He spoke of reading some of the latest reviews of their shows and commented
that some journalists had been saying that some of the tunes they were
playing sounded a bit dated. "No Shit" said Axl. He said that
they were just having some fun right now with the old tunes at this part of
the tour and went on to deride most biased ‘so-called journalists that
didn’t know how to get a real job.’ Pretty funny comment actually. Axl said,
"Well, you asked for it Axl. You came back. It’s all part of the game Axl."
Everybody was laughing at this point. A little bit of humour by Axl, at
I fuckin’ love it. All
in all, the show kicked some serious fuckin’ ass. All I overheard when I was
leaving the stadium was, "What a good show man!" I’m glad I went and I’d
gladly go again. If you’re reading this review Axl, just remember dude, you
fuckin’ rule man!!! Axl’s back and there’s not a damn thing anyone can do
