Just want to say that the 1988 and 1991 Philly gigs are some of the most energetic arena gigs I've seen on YouTube. I'm watching the 1991 gig and Axl actually commented that Sebastian Bach mentioned earlier in the evening the crowd is crazy. Axl goes, "This is like the biggest kegger I've ever seen." Haha. The crowd is fucking nuts for GN'R! Same goes for the 1988 gig too.

Anyone on this board attend either of those Philly gigs back in the day?

Not sure about that but a few people on ROV/Evo were at the riot in 2002.  I know mrsaxlrose is in Philly..she might have went to one of these shows.

Strange how Philly is notorious for its rough crowds.

Philly crowds are boisterous for sure. I went to the NHL draft when it was in Philly and the crowd booed the commissioner for every single pick. 14 One of the media members said it the most energetic crowd in his 30 years of covering the draft.

I only wish I attended those shows. I was too young and didn't know who GNR were yet.

I wasn't living in Philly yet during the 88 and 91 shows.  I did not attend the 02 show. Philly crowds can definitely be crazy..  Before they tore it down Veterans stadium was the only stadium that had to have a jail cell.  They don't have a jail at the Linc so I hope the crowds aren't out of hand because my daughter is going with me to the concert...tickets were an early 17th bday present for her.

Oh hell yeah. The 'ol Vet. Phillies fans are consistently ranked every year by Major League Baseball players as the worst fans in all of baseball.


Why?


Because they are a fucking nightmare on visiting teams to Phillies games. They will harass you and drive you fucking insane. There was a reason why Phillie fans loved guys like pudgy John Kruk and dip-spittin' con-artist Lenny Dykstra... they were a reflection of the attendees.


And yes, the Vet had a jail cell for a reason. To lock up Mitch Williams and protect him from the riot when he blew saves. Williams was very open about the death threats, for fucking reals 'yo, he got from the people of the city after he blew that 1993 World Series and the Blue Jays won.



Philly people don't fucking play man

That's why I, as a Dallas Cowboys fan, no longer go to any NFL games here.   They even throw things at Santa Claus.
