Capacity is about 75,000 for a football game, but I am unsure how many tickets are available for this event. The Georgia Dome had its largest overall attendance on record with a total of 80,892 attending the 2008 SEC championship game.  I think this is the first "Dome" show of the tour (not counting the Vegas shows in the basketball arena).  They started setting up on Sunday and finished Tuesday.  It takes 36 hours to erect the steel and 8 hours to set up lighting and the video boards.  16 man metal framing team, 125 members of the road crew with GNR that travels with the band and 125 local workers help assemble the stage and run the show.

The scale is just in another world compared to the arena shows we got used to.

They played the SkyDome in Toronto, though I'm not sure if the roof was open or not.

Wow...that's a bold statement coming from someone who saw them multiple times in their prime.

You're right about Slash.....imagine the potential when he was younger had he not been on drugs. I said this before...they somehow figured out a way to recapture their prime.

Bro... Welcome to my world. I tried to tell you about him when we last met. So glad you saw the light!!  It was an incredible show. It truly was. Slash is the most badass guitar player on the planet. He is the total package!!

Skydog, I thought the crowd was great too! Was pretty packed, not sold out but very strong attendance!  I spent over $100 at the mercy stands. Haha
