Quotes:
Duff: [...] we played The Limelight, acoustically, or semi-acoustically, everyone was so fucking drunk. Slash fell off the stage like three times, Steven fell off his drum set, Izzy, just, like fell over, and the only people left on the stage was Axl and myself [Making fucking videos, 1991?].

Duff: Two night before [the Ritz] show, we decided to play a semi-acoustic surprise show a a venue in Manhattan called the Limelight, a former church. By the time we headed into the sanctuary, everyone in the band was so fucked up that we lost members one by one as the set progressed. eventually everyone except me and Axl went down. It was a comical gig, but I took something serious away from it. I told myself I would never get so deep in my cups that I wouldn't be able to play [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 132].

Next concert: 1988.02.02.

According to the setlist.fm user evilsugar25, "after Patience, Axl stormed off the stage. The remaining Jams and covers were played with members of Law & Order, who opened, just filling out the set."

From GN'R live:

Rare acoustic/electric show. The only known live performance of 'Cornshucker,' which was written by Duff & sung by Duff & Axl at this show. 'Welcome To The Jungle' starts the electric set. Axl sings a few lines of 'Not Fade Away' by The Rolling Stones during the beginning of 'Mr. Brownstone.' Axl temporarily leaves after the second performance of 'Patience,' which was an improv jam. He was pissed because GN'R wasn't supposed to play this show. The band then jams on some songs. During the 'Instrumental Jam' after 'Patience,' parts of 'Whole Lotta Rosie' & 'Born To Be Wild' are played, with Axl singing. A roadie comes on stage to sing 'You Shook Me' & 'Rock And Roll,' which were done by Led Zeppelin. 'Rock And Roll' features the 'Living Loving Maid' intro. Again Axl comes back during 'Rock And Roll' to help out on vocals.
