    This is a piece of s**t

    Posted
    AxlRuinedGNR

    This concert has to be the biggest piece of s**t ever. What was this? I bought it since it was GUNS N' ROSES. What I saw was NOT Guns N' Roses. All I saw was some fat guy with a horrible moustache and taste in jackets and hats (Axl, you look awful), some emo goth heshe thing attempting to play it's guitar (someone get that thing the Chinese Democracy guitar tab book please) while doing some stupid posing (oh and, nice hat bro, but you're not Slash), a bearded guy playing a doubleneck doing all kinds of stupid s**t, Izzy?, Uncle Phil on drums, a bassist that is supposedly tommy stinson from the replacements, and 2, yes that's right 2, keyboard players, because 1 isn't enough. It's a pretty far cry from the rock and roll band that made Appetite for Destruction. But that's what this concert is. I expected Axl to play a lot of the newer stuff, after all, he wanted to bury Appetite and have Chinese Democracy outsell it, but with the set comprising of 7 AFD songs, 2 Lies songs, 6 UYI songs, 5 Chinese Democracy songs, and some covers nobody cares about with the current band singing, I'm not sure how he's going to accomplish that, but whatever, it's his vision. One thing is clear, this concert was s**t. Axl, congratulations, you ruined a great band. My advice would be to skip over this piece of s**t concert and purchase these instead: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/guns-n-roses-use-your-illusion-i-dvd/6038986.p?id=60589, http://www.bestbuy.com/site/guns-n-roses-use-your-illusion-ii-dvd/6039002.p?id=44166&skuId=6039002, http://www.bestbuy.com/site/velvet-revolver-live-in-houston-texas-dvd/1407582.p?id=2155184&skuId=1407582&st=velvet%20revolver%20dvd&lp=3&cp=1 I wouldn't even wish viewing this concert upon my worst enemy.

    AMAZING CONCERT FILM !

    If you're a GNR fan, this is a must have ! I've been to several GNR live shows over the years and this show is totally rocks ! This band is flawless and Axl's high energy and rasp is constant from the beginning until the very end. The whole concert has incredible energy and the songs are masterfully executed The overall production has awesome camera work and great editing. All the hits are here and amazing covers. The audio mix is unbelievably crystal clear and sounds unreal on my home theater in 5.1 Surround. This is a true gift to all Hard Rock fans ! It's time for me to pickup a 3DTV.

    The Good, The Bad, and the Weird

    THE GOOD: It's an awesomely good band, and includes 3(!) of the best guitarists we've never heard of. The setlist includes some great songs. It would have been a great show to see. THE BAD: My main gripe is stuff from the editing room; It didn't *sound* like a concert, at least at first. Too produced, and some weird effects on the vocals. And couldn't they have found some crowd shots were the audience wasn't looking down at their phones?!? That said, these things either got better, or I got used to it, about halfway through. THE WEIRD: Axl takes several bathroom breaks, during which various band members are left to their own devices. This is occasionally good, but often meh. All told, I give it 6.5 weird Axl mustaches out of 10.

    Sorry Axl, I just can't bring myself to support you and/or your band. As a once fan of GnR, your past BS, just put me on edge but then I had given you back a try with Chin. Demo. OMG NOT GOOD AT ALL!, Although some say otherwise....be that as it may, thanks to UTube, I realized I'm not alone in boycotting you. Sorry, I returned this DVD after watching UTube (past events) and no impressed, even if it was on CD...no can do. And No Can Do Anymore....I can't support this current group. EVEN IF .01% change of the Real Deal coming back, Axl is the problem....but man a GnR reunion.....it would probably go down as the biggest EVER Tour...EVER.

    If you can accept that Axl is and will never be 25 again... and willing to accept the fact that the editing is slightly mistimed at times, you will absolutely love this! Axl's band is in top form, playing classic Guns' songs to perfection bringing new life into its legacy. Haven't seen it in 3D yet, but the 2D that comes in this package never blurs the focus like some 3D concerts (metallica: through the never). Special Features weren't as cool as they could've been, but they did show a side of humanity by allowing us to see their humility and pride for the GnR institution.

    This is one of the best live Blu- Rays to ever come out. You can literally feel the energy that is guns n roses come thru your living room and punch you right in the gut. So many amazing tunes the 3 HOURS that the concert is feels like 30 minutes because you just get so caught up in the amazing performance. I have seen GnR 3 times over the past 4 years and I have NEVER been disappointed. HELP SAVE ROCK N ROLL AND BUY THIS AMAZING CONCERT!!

    If you like Guns N' Roses, you'll like this. The picture quality is excellent in HD. Also shot in 3D. It's a long concert 2 hr. 43 min. so you'll get your money's worth. Their classic songs, plus a few of their newer songs. Axl's current band are technically very good, and perform the classics perfectly. I've also seen this lineup perform live, as well as the original band. And I was very surprised how great this Guns N' Roses perform live. 3 Guitarists, 1 Bass Player, 2 Keyboards Players, 1 drummer, Plus Axl Rose. 8 Band Members. Even if you're loyal to Slash. You'll like this concert. Axl Rose sounded and performed fantastic.

    Guns N Roses rocks Las Vegas

    After attending this concert in Vegas and seeing the camera there recording it, I was waiting for the eventual DVD release. I wasn't disapointed. This picks up everything perfectly (standard and 3D) and actually has better/cleaner audio than I experienced live. A great track list that includes most of their biggest hits from the glory days of GNR to some of their newer songs off of Chinese Democracy. Add in a cover of "The Seeker" and it makes for a perfect show for any lover of rock and roll. Bonus features included band interviews (no Axl though, which fans of GNR might have expected).
