REVIEW BY: Nick

Going to this concert I really didn't know what to expect, besides the single “Slither” that is playing on all the radio stations around and a few GNR classics, but this was one of those concerts that you see once in a lifetime that just makes you say wow.

Scott Weiland easily gives Axl a run for his money and I was at Axl's last show at Madison Square Garden (December 5, 2002). This concert by far was way better then Axl, but don't get me wrong: Axl Rose is INSANE to hear, if he ever comes around again I recommend you see him at least once.

Now anyways the opening act, Living Things, was okay. I really was expecting them to suck, but they weren't bad. Now after that it took about an hour for VR to come on stage and Scott stole one of Axl's old lines, "You wanted the best, but they couldn't make it, now here's what you get -- from HOLLYWOOD, VELVET REVOLVER!” (It used to be GNR). I believe the first song they played was “Suckertrain Blues,” but I can't be sure since the album isn't out yet and the only songs I know are “Set Me Free” and “Slither” by heart.

Now this was a show for Metal fans -- every single song was mindblowingly awesome. I'd say the weakest song on the album is “Slither,” and that says something. In their set the guys played “It's So Easy,” “I Used To Love Her, But I Had To Kill Her” and Mr. Brownstone from GNR hits. They also ran through the STP songs “Sex Type Thing” and “Illegal One,” and the Nirvana song “Negative Creep.”

This show lasted about 90 minutes to two hours and every song they played made me proud to be a metal fan. The guys still got it -- Slash, Duff, Matt, Scott especially, and Dave are all set for rock stardom again, and they are all really cool guys. Me and a friend of mine waited outside of the show and got Duff's, Matt's, Dave's and Slash's autographs. I even had a short conversation with Slash and he was a really nice guy -- he signed more autographs then any of the guys in the band. I wanted to get Scott's but he only signed 3 or 4 people’s posters and things since his wife was calling him on his cell phone about something.

All in all I'll never forget that night getting to see some of the greatest rock stars who ever lived making rock ‘n roll again that reminds me of the same F YOU attitude of Appetite. Get yourself down to a record store and buy Contraband -- it's easily one of the best rock ‘n roll albums in years.
