I remember just seeing a fucking sea of people. It was a big huge gig, Rose Tattoo was on it, and that was a band that really meant a lot. I’d discovered them when Guns first came together [Faster Louder, September 2012]
You know, I guess I missed all of [the problems during the gig caused by heat, lack of water and poor amenities]. I never really heard any of that stuff. I remember it being really hot and that there was a lot of people needing water. [...] I was having all these crazy dreams about tornadoes and stuff and then we had to take a chopper out there, a helicopter, and there were some stormy skies. When we landed I remember some of the crew telling us there had been tornadoes, which was kind of weird. If I’d known they even had tornadoes down there I probably wouldn’t have got on the helicopter [Faster Louder, February 2013]

Press conferences are usually pretty uptight affairs but this clip is fun to watch. What a great way to welcome GNR to Australia. I love Norman's hairstyle.

Sort-of review in USA Today, December 1, 1992:

For Guns N' Roses, a jarring Latin beat

Rock's current pied piper of mayhem now is serenading Latin America. Last Wednesday Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses took Caracas, Venezuela by muiscal storm. Two days later there was an attempted coup.
Coincidence? Totally. But the tag-team events may have given pause to Rose, who recently received a $50,000 fine and two years probation for property damage and assault after a 1991 concert riot.
Currently on a South American tour, Rose & Co. failed to avoid controversy on their next stop: Bogota, Columbia, a nation not short on chaos.
Scheduled to play two nights--last Saturday and Sunday--at the Memesio Camacho soccer stadium, a delay with the band's equipment forced the first date to be canceled.
The second show proceded with "calm and joy", cooed Bogota's El Diario, which noted that many fans dressed á la Axl. But outside the venue--whose roof had crumbled hours before show time--a mini-riot was under way. Some of those who couldn't get tickets ($46 to $153) to the show--many of whom traveled overnight from Medellin and Cali and waited in line for 12 hours--broke car windows and attacked residents who peered out of their window for a peek, the newspaper reported. Police quelled the crowd with water hoses and tear gas.
The band was "not aware of the problems outside, and was concentrating on performing in the rain," says Bryn Bridenthal, spokeswoman for the band, performing next in Chile.
What now? An earthquake?
