Review of sorts in Popular 1, September 1993:

The show in Barcelona followed, more or less, the pattern of this leg of the world tour. Axl practically doesn’t change costumes any more, even though he wore a shirt which read "Fuck Your Idols" and had Axl’s image instead of that of Jesus (he had debuted that one at the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert). Slash fell to the ground on two occasions. One might think that the guitarist hadn’t passed a blood alcohol test. Duff was brilliant with the rendition of The Misfits’ song "Attitude". Del James, editor, official band biographer and Axl’s personal friend, is their pizza boy (yes, he was the guy who delivered two pizzas when a couch was brought out on stage for the acoustic set). Axl has a guy whose (hopefully not exclusive) job is to raise the curtain of the little dark “room” [on the side of the stage], so that the singer doesn’t have any difficulty to get into his forbidden mini sanctuary when he comes running from the other end of the stage. Axl’s and Izzy’s friendship seems to have gone back to shit. When the singer said, "Do you remember Izzy Stradlin?" the crowd was thrilled, and I naively thought that Izzy was the big surprise of the night and he was going to join them for some song. But then Axl replied to the crowd with "Fuck Izzy Stradlin!" and introduced "Double Talkin Jive, Motherfucker", the song he always dedicates to a hated person. So it’s safe to assume that the relationship between the two friends from Lafayette, Indiana, is not at its best. Axl interviewed Slash onstage, asking him what his life seemed like until then... These are just some of the most curious details at a show by a band that we’ll definitely see live again soon.
