So the show in São Paulo happenned yesterday.
Gotta say I was impressed by Axl's trying giving it all. However, he has some ups and downs and his voice was cracking often. Out of all my GNR concerts, this rates as the worse but it wasn't as bad as Rio 2022.
The show could be trimmed to a 2 hour GREAT rock concert, instead it's a 3 hour average show because it drags for too long.
It's easy to see that the band is just going through the motions and that's kinda sad.

If we’re being honest, he probably needs to stop the stadium and arena tours for a while and do a residency again.

Yeah...the set absolutely needs to be trimmed of ALL fat. I've recommended this since the concert I went to in 2017.

It's too fucking long...and nobody but 10-20 hardcores in attendance would complain about a condensed set.

Everyone is there to hear the following.....

Jungle
SCOM
NR
PC

on the next level....

KOHD
Patience
Don't Cry
LALD

That's the meat and potatoes right there.

All the set needs is a handful of key AFD-UYI minor hits/deep cuts to round it out.

YCBM
ISE
Brownstone
Nightrain
Out To Get Me
Civil War
Estranged

Pick a few of those...or rotate.


A couple new songs that can rotate if they release more

Boom...there's your show.

Drop the covers and while I don't have a problem with em....drop the CD tracks...or rotate them with the list above.



And yeah.... residencies in the US is a good idea.

That's all you need...you could even cut a couple of those songs if necessary.

It may happen at some point because he needs to save his voice if they plan on doing this long term.

You could probably dump out the CD tracks plus most of the GNR Lies stuff except for Patience.  I personally don't care for Live and Let Die but that one is popular.  Don't mind if they rotate one of the epic deep cuts though (Coma, Estranged, Civil War etc).

My view is the following are absolute must plays. The ones where if someone was going to a GN'R show and it was their first one and they didn't get these, they'd be rightly pissed off.

Welcome to the Jungle
Sweet Child O' Mine
Paradise City
November Rain

On the level below that if you missed too many of these in a set you'd also be rightly pissed off, but could accept a couple of them being missed

You Could Be Mine
Patience
KOHD
LALD
Don't Cry


After that... pick anything. A few well other well known ones, new tracks and some deep cuts. Honestly, they should just lock in the nine songs listed above and then rotate the entire rest of the set every tour cycle to keep the shows fresh. This has been the same basic core set since 2016.

Making ISE, Brownstone, CD, Better, DTJ, Estranged, RQ, Civil War and Nightrain rotational would freshen up these sets a lot. If they ever shorten their shows they'll have to consider it.

KOHD is almost up there in the main category with Jungle, SCOM, PC, and NR. You could actually make a case to include it.

It's that popular.

After 1989-90 I never cared for it but it has to stay.

It's not even a Dylan song anymore...it's GNR.

LALD is in this category too although it's more likely to be dropped than KOHD.

Estranged should be an alternate. It isn't necessary with NR in the set.
