First Chicago performance

"We've been waiting to get into (expletive) Chicago for a while now. We got our last gig canceled. And this one was about this (expletive) close to getting canceled," Slash says during a forty-six minute audio recording of this night's performance posted to YouTube.

After canceling an earlier Aragon Ballroom opening show for The Cult on Aug. 22, 1987, this show was almost canceled as well — drummer Adler broke his hand as the band was getting on the bus to head to the UIC Pavilion show. Fred Coury from the band Cinderella sits in on drums.

"We're the support band — the jock strap," Rose says of the band's role as opening act for Alice Cooper.

Rose comments on assault charges filed against him following an Atlanta show where he allegedly assaulted a security guard: "You know, I've got nothing against (expletive) security, you're out doing your job. But you don't need to (expletive) push kids." He also dedicates "Sweet Child O' Mine" to all the ladies at the show.

In Chicago, the band members got hassled when they tried to check into the hotel early. A fight was narrowly averted. Later that night, in the hotel bar, Axl punched a business man who hassled his friends and called the singer a "Bon Jovi look-alike." Dozens of cops broke up the brawl, and Axl and Steven went to jail. Afterward, Goldstein found Slash drunk in the bar, threw the guitarist over his shoulder and carried him back to his room. To show his thanks, Slash peed on Goldstein's shoulder. Source: Rolling Stone, November 1988.
