Friday Nov 15 Fargo North Dakota wittnessed probably the finest display of rock and roll the city has ever seen. The Fargodome was the venue and Guns n Roses were the act.
CKY were the opening act. I have never heard them before except the bits and pieces on Jackass. But they kicked ass. The only song I caught the name of was Promiscious Daughter. I would definatley like to see them again.
Next up was Mix Master Mike. Now I have no idea where the fuck this idiot fits into a rock show but none the less he was there. Enough said.
Finally the moment I have been waiting for since the MTV music awards, GUNS N FUCKIN ROSES . Now I was a bit skeptical with the new band and the lousey preformance on MTV but I have been a fan since the beginning and wanted Axl to prove all these dipshits wrong about him being washed up and blah blah blah blah blah. Well he did and him and the boys put on one of the finest shows I have ever seen. The fire, explosions, confetti, lights, video screens, Bucketheads dance, and all around energy of the band made this show fucking great.
The songs they played were:
Welcome to the Jungle
It's So Easy
Out Ta Get Me
Think About You
Sweet Child O' Mine
Knockin On Heaven's Door
3 songs off the new album and if the rest of the album sounds anything like these songs GNR fans are in for a treat
My 2 favorite GNR songs Nightrain and Rocket Queen
Live and Let Die
You Could Be Mine
Paradise City and if i missed any more I'm sorry i had alot to drink.
The band that Axl has assembled is nothing but amazing. If it can't be the originals it has to be this bunch of guys. They are extremely talented musicians and they now how to put on a show. I definatley would recommend going to see this show it is well worth the money.
Finally i have to apolgize to my friend Brian who went with me. I ran into an exgirlfriend their and she had an extra seat in the 5th row from the stage, so I ditched him like any true friend would of. I would have expected him to do the same. Anyway he hooked up with a friend so he wasn't alone. Thank you for the ticket Cris I will never forget that night and the fun we had that brought back a lot of memories. Also thank you to Axl and the boys for the best damn rock and roll show to hit the road in a long time. Keep it up and please come back.
