It was incredible; we played two nights in a row to 180,000 fans in Maracanã Stadium. [...] It was something else; I'm not sure that I've ever seen a more insane Guns N' Roses crowd - and that is saying something. When we kicked into the bridge of "Paradise City," people swan-dived from the upper tier of the stadium - seemingly to their death [Slash's autobiography, p 325]

Review from Metal Hammer, March 1991:

Andre Verhuysen wrote:For Guns N' Roses there is not much to win anymore, judging by the gig they did on Sunday. But Guns gave a much more relaxed performance on this night. The set was mainly the same (although I can't remember if they played the new song 'Bad Apples' on Sunday). But they also played a set that was much more fun. Even Slash was smiling form ear to ear as he looked around him during breaks in the songs. The joy was back and the nerves had disappeared and it became clear at last why Guns N' Roses were the headliners.

It was great to see 'Patience' and 'Knoking On Heaven's Door' whipping up a sea of hands in the air and 'Mr. .Brownstone' and 'Welcome To The Jungle' rocked like crazy. Guns N' Roses are now one of the best stadium bands in the world. Their show here argued well for the upcoming tour due to start in Europe.
