Notes by the taper:
- i would like to dedicate this release to a very special person in my life: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
- Also thank you BIG time to "rockphantom" for persistently encouraging me to make the trek to Las Vegas for a once in a lifetime REAL Guns N' Roses experience!
- first official GN'R Re-union show with "The Big 3": Slash, Axl, Duff [they did a little warm-up gig in the Troubadour on April 01, 2016 though]
- i could witness a ~50min very nice GN'R rehearsal during the VIP party right before the show: Wish You Were Here, Layla, November Rain, Knockin' On a Heaven's Door, Welcome to the Jungle and There was a time [with Axl being on stage in an normal wheelchair -sometimes on crunches- and he was singing!)
- Axl had injured his leg and was confined to David Grohl's 2015 live performance throne.
- During the band introduction Axl refers to Slash: "And i think you know this guy: I don't know what it is, but it's weird and it's pissed off and it calls it so SLASH!" - which are about the exact same introduction words from the famous Ritz'88 show!
- Before "Theme from The Godfather" Slash gets an extra introduction from Axl: "And a man who needs no introduction but gets one anyway....ladies and gentlemen: Slash!!!"
- first time Slash played on Axl's songs: 05) Chinese Democracy, 12) This I Love, 20) Intro/Better
- "Coma" = first time live since April 10, 1993
- "Better" has a dark new intro
- It was very nice meeting all the fans from all(!) around the world, I really enjoyed it!
- complete audience recording (no cuts)
- nice dynamics!
- no SBEs on here
- MD5 and FLAC fingerprints included
- FLAC fingerprints included
- Please give a copy of this recording to any fan who wants to hear it, FOR FREE!!
