The last three shows have had very similar setlists, with only Duff's song changing and Patience and Don't Cry alternating. I hope they will change things up again today. Maybe play Madagascar or Catcher In The Rye, or some UYI deep cuts.

Jim Carchidi wrote:How Guns N' Roses' Camping World concert came together — literally

Before legendary rock band Guns N' Roses can take the stage at Orlando's Camping World Stadium on July 29 for their "Not In This Lifetime Tour," someone has to actually build a stage.

"Every night's an adrenaline rush," said production manager Dale Skjerseth during a July 28 press event. "It's a rush for us to see what we've accomplished."

Skjerseth, whose resume includes Guns N' Roses' 1992 "Use Your Illusion Tour," as well as tours for Ozzy Osbourne, The Rolling Stones and AC/DC, described the production with a cool demeanor that contrasted a flurry of activity from the 125-member tour crew working amid sweltering temperatures.

"We designed it around the venues," said Skjerseth of the massive stage structure taking shape behind him. "We start months in advance, fitting it all together, making sure it's user-friendly to all the venues.

Guns N' Roses' long-awaited reunion tour is one of several high-profile events in the wake of renovations that have made the former Citrus Bowl more attractive to the sports and entertainment industry.

"The building suits us perfectly," said Skjerseth of Camping World Stadium. "They built it for convenience, so setting up this show is even easier than an arena."

The stage is flanked by two 30-foot by 40-foot video screens and includes staircases, support systems for lights, speakers and pyrotechnics, and a piano lift where front man Axl Rose will perform the band's 1992 hit single "November Rain."

And to remedy the logistical challenges of the tour's current list of 32 host venues, it's all multiplied by three.

"We have three sets of steel," said Skjerseth, referring to the stage supports and framework that take about 36 hours to assemble. "And each set of steel has 16 trucks."

As the concert stage construction at Camping World Stadium was nearing completion on the afternoon of July 28, the steel from the previous night's concert in Atlanta's Georgia Dome was already on its way to Houston's NRG Stadium where the band will play on Aug 5. Steel only takes about 12 hours to break down after the show. Meanwhile, stage construction for the July 31 concert at New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome was just getting under way.

Skjerseth watched as soundboards were wired in the center of Camping World Stadium and as lighting was tested more than 40 feet above the stage. Pyrotechnics would soon be installed, and the giant video screens would later be turned on. But for all the tech and trappings, the most important part of the show is never lost on this industry veteran.

"Having the band members back together, that's what the fans are really looking for." said Skjerseth. "They're here to hear them playing their music together again."

Nah, fourth show in a row following the same pattern. I don't think GN'R shows have ever been so formulaic.

Review in Orlando Weekly:

Jason Ferguson wrote:Guns N' Roses reward stadium crowd with a robust and subtly weird reunion show

"Since I was a child, it's always been my dream to play Camping World Stadium," laughed Ian Astbury. Here he was, the lead singer of the Cult, opening for Guns N' Roses on the latter band's highly anticipated reunion tour, taking a minute out of his band's brisk and powerful set to point out the absurdity of the Citrus Bowl's new corporate branding partner. Of course, his humor was tinged with a touch of bitter irony, because back in '87, the roles were reversed – GNR's first U.S. tour was as openers for the Cult – but time moves on, iconic venues get named after RV dealerships, and rock stars get older.

Which, of course, was the thing on the mind of all of the folks who filled the Citrus Bo... Camping World Stadium last night. After years of acrimony, bickering, and out-and-out weirdness, here was most of the original lineup of Guns N' Roses on stage at the same time playing the songs that – 25 years ago – made them seem like the most exciting and most infamous band on the planet. But hey, that was 25 years ago, so for most folks in the crowd, I'd imagine the expectations for the band to be successful were probably pretty low: Play the hits, light some pyro, don't forget too many words, don't fall over, don't murder each other, and make us remember what it felt like when rock 'n' roll ruled the world.

Did they succeed?

Simple answer: Guns N' Roses demolished those low expectations and set an example for what larger-than-life rock 'n' roll reunions should look like in this day and age.

More detailed simple answer: Yes, the show started (mostly) on time. No, nobody in GNR will ever be cooler than Duff. Yes, Slash is still one of the best guitarists on Earth. No, nobody fucked up or flamed out in any noticeable way. Yes, Axl looked great, but no, he doesn't look 25 because he's not 25. And yes, Axl sounded great, hitting all the extended yowl-y screams you'd want him to, and often adding a half-measure to their length as if to prove a point.

More complicated answer: I actually can't believe what I just witnessed, because this show was both really great and also really weird. Like, weird in a way that only a GNR stadium rock show can be weird, because only a GNR show will ever have to bend to the will and whims of W. Axl Rose. The entire structure of the set list seemed designed with a pacing in mind that allowed Axl lots and lots of little breaks, during which he'd retreat offstage for a moment or two (probably getting oxygen). And while some of you cynics may want to use that as an opportunity to be snarky about old people getting old, this approach allowed for two things: 1) When he was on stage, oxygenated Axl was all energy, tossing and spinning his mic stand, doing his little shimmy snake dance thing, bounding up and down the catwalk, and delivering those trademark screams with more relish and power than anyone certainly expected, and, 2) When he wasn't on stage, the rest of the band got to get their groove on, with lots of extended solos, jams, and unexpected song selections that added a tremendous amount of musical dynamics – mostly interesting, but occasionally not – to what probably should have been a jukebox revue of the band's biggest hits. (It also meant that "Welcome to the Jungle" was the fourth [!] song played, which is both a ballsy move and one that respects the needs of those folks with babysitters.) In other words: casual fans/haters didn't get to see Axl get winded, while hardcore fans got to hear their favorite band go deep into their catalog.

In other words, it was all you could have asked for while also being what you would never have expected.
