i could be wrong, but to me rebel and Oklahoma sound like something Slash would come up with. First post in a while by the way. good times to be a gnr fan, especially as a fan of the chinese democracy era as it was meant to be..
it`s sad to think about what could have been and to compare it with the reality and what we got officialy... but i guess axl or tommy feel the same. especially tommy. imagine you come up with and record all this great stuff and then you have people like Ron shitting all over it...
The original version of the title track is the best example. it sounds how it is supposed to sound and how i always imagined it to sound. a rock song, that couldn`t possibly kick more ass!

Japan was last night. No new songs or real set list mods. Some say Axl was great. Some say not great. The Fucking Seeker still got played.
sounds great! i can`t wait for exactely THAT setlist to be played at the shows i`m going to in europe.
You don't want OTGM, My Michelle? You actually enjoy "The Seeker"?
You`re probably right that they shouldn`t play the seeker, but i still enjoy it. If you ask me, these setlists couldn`t really get any better. of course i`d like to see OTGM and My Michelle, but there are songs i`m looking forward to more. DTJ or Coma come to mind and slash playing Estranged and November Rain will be highlights for me. and i`ll go to 4 shows, so i`m fairly certain i`ll get to see some changes to the setlist. It might seem boring to someone sitting in front of their computer streaming every show they play and analysing every setlist, especially after having seen the Reunion already, but people in other countries are still waiting for that experience.
Tell this to someone in 2002: Slash and Duff are back in the Band, even Adler appears from time to time and they play songs like Estranged, Coma, DTJ, Civil War, Yesterdays and Don`t Cry again, plus stuff from Chinese Democracy, yet people are still complaining about the setlist :-D
I`m not taking this serious anymore. Some people won`t EVER be happy...

i think it said 71.000 for both shows...
Skip to the last post in the thread.
"This past weekend, Guns N’ Roses’ first of two shows at Soldier Field in Chicago was sold out, but the second Sunday show was not as well-attended, with the stadium’s upper deck vacant on one side. The empty seats were noted on social media."
this is what i read:
As for the second day in Chicago, he said that since the first show was a sellout, 71,000 tickets were sold in all, grossing nearly $9 million.

i was in Hamburg for this one. Great show, albeit the sound could`ve been better for 110€. First show without the chair, that was nice. I was hoping he would be on his feet again and thankfully he was. A show with axl sitting just doesnt seem right. I´m thinking about going to the last show in Düsseldorf as well. i think i`ll wait for the London show tomorrow to see if he`s continuing to recover from the cold or whatever he had. Leipzig sounded great again.
For all you people crying about this. This Axl/Dc thing is getting rave reviews here in Germany and Axl`s image is back on track. Axl getting tons of positive press will only help Gnr, at least here in Europe. As far as i know there are problems in Germany with Promoters doubting his reliability, i guess that`s solved now...
By the Way, before the show in Hamburg they played a song by the Walking Papers (feat. Duff) in the Stadium. I guess that was Axl`s choice... I mean they`re completely unknow here. If that`s the case, nice one Axl.
wow, looks like it`s really possible this time!
one thing that seems to have been overlooked in the last few months of speculation, is that the manager of the joint in vegas said in an interview in june 2014, that axl plans to reform the original band after the residency. at that time it came completely out of the blue and noone took it serious, but in hindsight it perfectly fits the picture. axl handing out those chinese democracy platinum discs to the band members could`ve really been the end of the chinese democracy era..
That's really interesting. Have you got a link to that interview?
Obviously it looks as though GN'R are reforming, but there is still a story to tell. How did it happen, what is the dateline.
Another aspect to look out for is that big interview. Rolling Stone or Billboard magazine, someone is going to have that exclusive interview which gives us some insight into how it all happened.
I`ve found it by accident:
