Welcome to the jungle, indeed. The highly anticipated Guns N` Roses/ Metallica/Faith No More was a blitzkrieg bacchanal that combined explosive performances with food fights and a sordid burlesque.

Headliner Guns N` Roses took more than 90 minutes to set up, which was more than enough time for the restless throng of concertgoers to make mischief. Fans pelted each other with cups, food and toilet paper during the lengthy lull.

Then matters got even weirder. Encouraged by catcalling male fans, some women exposed themselves for the big-screen television cameras.

But not everyone was amused by the debauchery or Guns N' Roses' tardiness. Some fans had to leave the stadium early.

Those who could stay were treated to the usual uneven Guns N` Roses set. The Axl Rose-led band started out with focused, blazing interpretations of "It's So Easy" and "Mr. Brownstone."

Manic renditions of "Civil War," "Night Train" and "Bad Obsession" followed. Most interesting was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it rendition of the Misfits' obscure favorite, "Attitude", sung by bassist Duff McKagan.

But things began to deteriorate midway through the set. The momentum was severely diminished by lengthy and pointless solos by guitarists Slash and Gilby Clarke, as well as drummer Matt Sorum.

The band never regained its footing, and the crowd slowly thinned. Some of the remaining fans were spied sleeping or just sitting, bored expressions on their faces.

If Guns N` Roses isn't careful, this tour could sound the band's death knell. As comparatively sluggish sales of the band's two current albums suggest, fans may be growing weary of Rose's brattiness.

Unlike Guns N` Roses, Metallica seems fully aware that this tour presents a marvelous opportunity. In a performance that could only be compared to Attila the Hun's tour of Mongolia, Metallica storm-trooped its way into the hearts of the crowd. Their set was simply superb - more than 90 minutes of nonstop musical mayhem.

Lyrically speaking, Metallica is nowhere near as compelling as Guns N` Roses. In fact, Metallica's lyrics often read like bad high school poetry. But musically the band goes toe-to-toe with any heavy-metal act, and that savage melodicism proved to be the linchpin of the performance.

Faith No More delivered a set that was energetic, but ultimately confounding. The band ambitiously stewed rap, heavy metal and absurdist pop influences, but the experimentation resulted in an infuriating, sputtering performance.
