    Yikes, lol.
    I don't understand how he or anyone could sing too well sitting like that, with no room for the diaphram to expand and what not. He should get one of those gadgets where you kneel the leg that's injured on it and it has wheels, so you can move around easily just by pushing with the healthy leg. That throne is ridiculous, and GnR with the singer sitting the whole time is just kind of silly.
    One of these things built to look cooler, obviously, no handlebar, and a less obvious frame would work IMO, as long as they could keep some path on the stage clear of wires or make the wheels so they could roll over them okay. He could then stand and use his diaphragm properly and move around at least a little bit. Still awkward, but so much better than just sitting there. I understand why Grohl maybe couldn't havendone this, since kneeling like that might have damaged his broken leg, but Axl totally could.

    If they're gonna play Coma, I may have to pony up for a ticket.

    Who else is really excited for this? Vegas last night seemed pretty killer... 20+ songs, 2+ hours.

    I was at the second vegas show and they were amazing. The whole crowd, all the way to the back row, was on their feet for the entire 2 1/2 hours. It was full of fans waiting 20+ years to see them live. It was worth every penny. Axl sounded great, even though he was sitting most of the time.

    Hey now, I see everyones point about not liking MLB if it weren't for PJ, however, I would never say I like something just because it has to do with PJ. I [email protected]#king love MLB. I might not have discovered them without PJ, but that's it. I love the music I love because it's subjective... I discovered it on my own. Not because my parent or boyfriend got me into them. I don't pretend to like anything for anyone elses benefit. I got myself into them. And I don't give a [email protected] what anyone else says about what I love! Now back to GnR...

    of course my statement wasn't meant to assume that 100% of people who like PJ and MLB like the latter only because of the former. I said a lot, not all.

    I think a lot of people on here would have nothing to do with Mother Love Bone if they didn't have the PJ connection. Just sayin'. I know I don't like MLB.

    I think that's truth. I dug in after falling in love with PJ and love them. The only related project I don't like is Green River. Ugh. Not that great.
    I actually like Green River. LOL

    I think I skipped over the 'a lot' part so I could make a speech :wink:

    Kind of shocked at how good they sound. Especially Axl. Maybe because he's not running around at 80mph
  • Like many others have said... It's paying for an experience that most people never thought would happen. I was able to snag a decent floor ticket for the sold out Toronto show for $280CDN and have no problem with this.

    In fact it's not much of a stretch for an "experience". In 2013, I saw the revamped line up in a 3000-club in Toronto and had no problem paying the $150+ face value price just to see one of my favourite bands in a Toronto club versus an arena or festival.

    Coma is a badass song.
    Kay, that video made me actually want to see them (even though the throne is still absolutely ridiculous, and I think Axl just sitting there like that is a real detriment to the performance. Such a shame. Plus, he's probably going to gain 20 lbs this tour, lol). I don't think the vocals make that song sound good (they are only okay at best). It's everyone else. They are all playing great, and hearing THAT makes me more interested for sure. Anyway, pretty sure they will never come back to Vancouver, lol. Not sure they'd even be allowed to if they asked, hahaha.
    I wonder how Axl and Slash are getting along so far?

    :rofl: I certainly hope he's outta the "throne" by time they hit Det. It's hard to look at. :lol: and ok I get it but I hate the glasses.
    Oh please let it rain today.
    Those that can be trusted can change their mind.
