Re: What's your dream song inclusion for these shows?

So, I figured I'd try to put together a (somewhat) realistic setlist. This is based on the best-case scenario rumours that have been floating around – Izzy and Adler doing guest spots, a VR track, some Chinese Democracy material included and a new song (as per the rumours floating around, it's Atlas Shrugged – subbed in for Catcher, since it's allegedly a similar piano-led track).

I've tried to apply some rational thought to the setlist – it's loosely based on the most recent gigs, as this is effectively a "continuation" of Axl's GN'R with Slash and Duff subbed in for Tommy and DJ/Bumble. I've added solo spots and Izzy/Duff-led songs so Axl can go and huff oxygen backstage, assumed that they'll break out the tracks they've historically played and in roughly the same order, tried to balance fast/slow stuff and albums of different material in there. And I stuck Sailing in there 'cause why not? smile

since MSL has hinted that Atlas Shrugged may be released, I will go with that for my "dream". 

Overall, I expect a pretty generic setlist.

I would like no more LALD, So Fine, or Attitude..

I like Sky Dog's suggestion of Atlas Shrugged.

Yeah, I think a lot of people want to ditch the covers, but... they're well-established in the set list, they're iconic GN'R songs and I don't see them going anywhere any time soon. Likewise the Duff-vocal tracks – Axl needs some rest time, and putting Duff front and centre at least means you've got an OG GN'R guy up there performing.

Bear in mind that isn't my dream setlist – more a best-case scenario based on rumours and reasonable expectations. I mean, I'd love to hear Perfect Crime or Don't Damn Me but they might be a stretch for Axl to perform...

That's a fine setlist, but with only two CD songs I would hardly call that a continuation of Axl's GNR.

If I were to build on this, I'd drop some of the slower/piano stuff (and if Atlas Shrugged really is yet another piano ballad, I'd hope they debut another new song instead) and substitute for more rockers. For Axl to save face, I think you'd need to include CD, and given that it's a rocker that's easy for him to sing I'm betting it'll be in there (and I don't mind). If Pitman is really out, I think they'll drop Maddy. Since the better rockers on CD are sort off out of character for classic Guns, it might be better to pick up Slither and/or Set Me Free instead of adding Scrapped and Shackler's. I'm on the fence about Better, and really don't like Riad.

So how about this:

Also, I think Axl could easily pull off Don't Damn me if he's in shape physically. Yes, there's a lot of words to be sung there, but at least vocally he can for the most part use the lower register "CD" style voice (except for the slow part in the middle).

I saw a lot of people put this on their 'filler' list, but I absolutely love that song and think it would kick ass live!
