REVIEW BY: Rubén Vergara
There are two bands here in Mexico, which counts with a high number of fans: Kiss and Guns and Roses, so the fact that a little a part of those bands were here was a huge experience to see.
The night started with two local bands that couldn't get the audience attention, due to the low musical quality.
At 12:30, Gilby Clarke, Eric Singer and Stephan hit the stage with the crowd screaming "Eric, Eric, Eric!!!" It was obvious that Eric Singer had the major number of fans in the venue. They started with some solo career songs from Gilby. The best moment of the beginning of the show came along with "Tijuana Jail."
The crowd was anxious to hear the songs of their ancient bands, so they started with "Nothing to Lose" from Kiss and the people went crazy. Eric Singer seems to be proud of belonging Kiss and I think he is a great drummer so he deserves that place. Then came the GnR time, so they played "It's So Easy" and after that "Knockin’ on Heaven's Door," the classic Bob Dylan song performed also by GnR. It was a show to remember and the Mexican people really had fun watching this great musicians play for almost two hours. In the middle of the show they played also two songs from LA Guns: "Rip and Tear" and "Electric Gypsy". Everybody was surprised when we listened to the beginning of "Come Together," the Beatles classic, which was a part of the set.
The encore consisted only of one song, but it was a song that could not be forget: "Rock and Roll All Nite." Wow!!! I loved it. Honestly, expected more Kiss and GnR songs, but it was a great show anyway.
