ÅBNINGSBAND: Raging Slab.

INFO: Det tredje og sidste opvarmningsshow for UYI turneen. Åbningsbandet er Raging Slab. Speciel gæsteoptræden af Shannon Hoon fra Blind Melon. Axl fortæller at omkvædet til ‘Right Next Door To Hell’ er skrevet om hans nabo. Slash siger de filmer videoen til ‘You Could Be Mine’ for den nye Terminator 2 film. Efter ‘You Could Be Mine,’ spørger Axl publikum: “Have you ever heard the expression break a leg? Well, I think I just did.” Axl brækkede rent faktisk hælen, og blev tvunget til at bære en bøjle på det, de første få uger inde i turneen. Før ‘Don’t Cry,’ fortæller Axl hvordan Shannon’s band spillede sangen for nogle år tilbage. ‘Welcome To The Jungle’ tilegnes til “3rd Street Hell’s Angels.”

KOMMENTAR:

Denne optagelse er lytteværdig, men der er meget støj på båndet. Den får et rent A. Bandet lyder lidt bedre sammentømret i dette tredje og sidste “øvelses-show” før den store verdensturne.

Axl: “I’m really happy with the way things are going. Professional rehearsals in front of people. It allows me to get into the mode I’m gonna have to be in when we start doing the big shows. Frisco and Bill Graham were really cool, and there was a different kind of hunger there for us. L.A. seemed to scrutinize us a bit more, and I welcomed that. In L.A. we didn’t play ‘Jungle’ or ‘Paradise,’ because we’d already played for over two hours. I didn’t want to push my voice any harder. Also, we didn’t want to push past the curfew and be fined eight grand for one song. It felt a little bit like I ripped some people off, but I knew they were happy with what we had done. I thought we went over real well in L.A., but I still look at it as rehearsals. I’m not really worried about what critics have to say about these gigs, but if they like these shows, in six months they’ll be real happy.”
