I want to hear this show with Izzy's guest appearance now!

There is two shows in London. I thought IZ guest appeared at the 5/31/12 show and the 6/1/12 show isn't done and maybe he isn't appearing at both shows. Am I wrong?

Update: laurita75 at beenafix.com, a brilliant researcher, just linked this and made me happy:

I've been able to find download link to fan-made bootleg audio of the UK shows this tour except for these two shows at London's O2 with Izzy guesting. I do hope they show up in this very cool site.

Don't have the technology. Also, I like the format of complete shows in an .rar file. I'm just surprised to not have them yet as the other full shows leading up to these London O2 shows are made available in download sections so far. I am enjoying especially the Glasgow show from earlier in the same week, especially Tommy's rendition of Motivation on that evening.

Surprisingly good sound for a fan-made bootleg.
The execution by the band from song to song is uneven which is the norm and I mean mostly Axl's ability to reproduce what he did in the recording - his vocal parts are fucking hard to pull off - no one else could do Axl better, except maybe Adam Sandler, but not for a whole show, night after night.
I am especially big fan of Tommy's and of Richard's playing. [Honky Toast <3!]
This particular night (Glasgow) Tommy goes all out snarling punk-assed. I will have this boot version in a hard core and glam compilation and in my car for driving pleasure soon.
I enjoy the instrumental jams Richard and Ron work up - maybe it is just a refreshing change but I dig the retro Beck or Cream power trio feel in Richards new solo and also the quirkiness of Rons new solo and Ron's send up of Flower of Scotland added in. Also, the audience seems warm and fuzzy for the band. Maybe I exaggerate but to me they contribute to a good vibe/interaction in the show from what it sounds like in this boot. I should put this in the Glasgow thread, not here. Feel free to move this mods if it irks you here.

Whoa, I wasn't expecting such an in depth response, but thank you!
