The BBC interview:



I will keep all new interviews which doesn't really mention GN'R in this thread. I added the NME interview to the general interview section earlier, though.

With all the interview snippets released on Facebook and elsewhere it is funny to see comments from people who only know Axl by reputation, "He is actually normal and respectful!?" Very Happy

I don't know any of the songs played so far, but it sounds good. AC/Dc fans both at mygnrforum and periscope is praising Axl.

"It's one thing to be one of the most iconic rock singers in musical history while singing your own beloved band's songs, another thing entirely to try and pull it off while singing those of another iconic rock band. It would be daft to go as far as to say lighting has struck twice for Rose, but there was a raging rock and roll storm nonetheless, and Rose could have damn near kissed himself for pulling it off."

This really is a win-win thing. Many AC/DC fans might not like the situation, but they will still remain fans and with Axl froonting the band many people who weren't fans of the band may be interested and realize it is a great band with lots of good music. Likewise, some AC/DC fans might now be curious about GN'R and give that band a new listen. So both bands win. Additionally, with all the positive reviews and reactions, people are realizing Axl isn't that notorious demon they thought he was - he is actually professional, humble and good at what he does. It helps to restore a reputation that has been down in the drain for so many years, at first well-deserved but now not really fitting to him and largely unfair (he has been starting shows on time for some years now and haven't really caused any tumults since playing over curfews and hitting that paparazzi in 2009. I hope he enjoys this universal acclaim - for the first time ever Axl Rose is liked by the media.

Video from Marseille:


Still no big fan of most AC/DC songs, but surprisingly Axl is singing really well for them. Surprised

Most seem to dig it once they heard it. The crowd was really lame where I was standing though: Just standing, but that's unfortunately typical for crowds at concerts in NL or Belgium.

Axl was still in the chair, but he walked around a bit during Highway to Hell, the first song of the encore. Smile

That's the first song from Prague I have heard. Reading on mygnrforum it seems his voice wasn't as strong for this show. Touch Too Much is obviously song without much rasp. Can anyone confirm that his volice was generally worse?

I listened to some of the streaming. Axl's voice was not in his best form. But some songs were killer like Thunder and Back In Black. I did not like very much Touch Too Much. I hope for better performance in the next shows, it's a good song.
