Guns N Roses Pacific Coliseum December 17, 2011 Setlist

Category: Set ListsEyeliah @ 4:31 pm

What a show! Not only did Guns N Roses come on before midnight (11pm)  but they played until past 2am.  I have seen GnR twice before; NYC in 2006 and Calgary in 2010, both epic performances but wouldn’t hold a candle to the mind blowing performance this past Saturday.  I think it had something to do with Duff McKagan (of the original GnR f.y.i), he opened the show with his band Loaded.  Duff’s band even did a few GnR songs, Duns ‘N Bones, Attitude and So Fine, maybe even a few more old ‘Hollywood Rose’ songs that I didn’t catch.  He also joined Guns N Roses on stage for Civil War (mind blowing, dream setlist song) and You Could Be Mine.

I watched Rock in Rio back in October and GnR played my favorite song Estranged for the first time in 18 years! Yes it made me cry and I was hoping they would play it for us Saturday.  So when Axl started singing “talking to yourself” not even an hour into the show, I couldn’t help it and I got a bit emotional again.  Best song of the night.  Axl surrounds himself with so many talented musicians and to be completely honest, I prefer the new songs to the old when the guitarist aren’t trying to cover Slash but are working their own personal brand of magic.  That’s why I was mildly disappointed that they didn’t play any ‘new’ songs that I hadn’t seen them perform previously. Concerts are spread out over five years and all three sets are very similar.  By the encore, rolling around about 1:00am I was exhausted! After singing, dancing and screaming during every song for two hours I could barely mouth along to the last few songs, good work boys you wore me out.
