People are saying Axl was singing better this time, but still not good.

Great to have this new round of concerts started, even if it was a bit rough start. Really cool to hear Better and Welcome to the Jungle all acoustic.

The Neil Young song is Don't Let It Bring You Down. I haven't heard he and Axl singing it together but I really really want to. Great song and I can imagine it almost. Wish I'd been there.

Axl's singing is not bad at all on this show, despite his strep throat. A lot better than the first day. The 'first show of the tour drama queens' on the boards are getting old.

Yes, I was pleasantly surprised with the second day -- I never thought Axl would improve that much so quickly. It is really unfortunate that it is the bad shows that are televised/streamed. That being said, Axl and GN'R got a lot of good publicity as a result of the charity concert, so all in all it is really good.
