Review in WSB-TV 2, Nov. 3, 2011:
Guns N' Roses rocks Philips Arena

It's been nearly 25 years since Guns N' Roses played Atlanta. On Wednesday night at Philips Arena, the frontman of the group, Axl Rose, brought a different Guns N' Roses to town.

The original incarnation of the band included Rose; guitarists Slash and Izzy Stradlin; Duff McKagan on the bass; and drummer Steven Adler. Gone is everyone but Rose. A number of musicians have floated through the band over the last decade with Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Chris Pitman, Richard Fortus, Rom Thal, Frank Ferrer and DJ Ashba part of the band today.

But once fans get over the fact that Slash won't be slamming back the guitar at the concert, it's a pretty incredible show for fans.

The band opened up to "Chinese Democracy" before moving right into "Welcome To The Jungle." In total, the band was slated to play 32 songs over three hours. The performance included several solos. Reed played "Baba O'Riley" on the piano and Rose played "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" on it, too. The hits from the earlier years were mixed in with some of the band's more recent songs. "Estranged," "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "November Rain" were a few of the fan favorites played in the regular portion of the show. The encore included both "Patience" and "Paradise City."

Rose did reference the fact that the last time he played in Atlanta, in 1987, he was arrested at the concert. Guns N' Roses was slated to play in the Omni in the early 90s, but the show was canceled.

A number of stories have been reported that the band was making fans wait a long time before taking the stage. That wasn't the case Wednesday night in Atlanta. Guns N' Roses took the stage about a half hour after BuckCherry wrapped its opening set. Kellen Heller was on the bill, too.

Review in OMFG Atlanta Blog, Nov. 8, 2011:
Axl Rose gives it to Atlanta like a RockStar should!

Long, hard and LOUD!

Guns N’ Roses Concert
11/2/11 Philips Arena
Atlanta, GA 8pm – 2:15am

"The North American road trip, helmed by the band's only original member Axl Rose, marks the band's first since 2006. The remaining members include Tommy Stinson (bass), Bumblefoot (guitar), Dizzy Reed (keyboards), DJ Ashba (guitar), Richard Fortus (guitar), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Chris Pitman (keyboards). As Guns N' Roses returns to Atlanta for the first time since 1987, the debauchery still seems to follow the band to this day."

Axl’s performance reminded Atlanta what a real rock star should look and sound like. He was in a great mood throughout his 3 hour set and frequently joked with band members and his audience. He is quite a jokester. He mentioned his last visit to Atlanta and how he was arrested on-stage for punching a security guard at the Omni in 1987. He teased about 3 songs in and said “Well, I’ve gotten farther tonight than I did in 1987.” He told us the story about when he was sitting in the Paddy wagon with cuffs on. His manager came to him and said “I think we’ve got this worked out, all you need to do it apologize to the Security Guard.” Axl’s apology consisted of two words that weren’t “I’m sorry” but started with “F – you”.

By the end of the show, he expressed a heartfelt appreciation for the good reception he received from the audience. When the show ended at nearly 2am with Paradise City, many of the people stayed and sang every word to the songs they knew. When it was done Axl twirled around some girls panties and bra that were flung onto the stage and kept running back and forth on the stage. Axl seemed to not want to leave the stage telling everyone to get home safe and come back and see him again and wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas.

Love him or hate him you cannot deny his incredible talents as a musician and song writer. Axl Rose is one of the greatest front man's of our time and I am so glad I got to witness him lay it down!

Rock on! Steph Geezy

Review and pictures by Perry Julien, The Backstage Beat, November 2011:
]size=13]Guns N’ Roses Rock Philips[/size]

Hard rock heavyweight Axl Rose and his re-tooled Guns N’ Roses performed at Philips Arena on Wednesday night. Being the fourth leg of a very long awaited tour, expectations ran high but tickets sales were low with a little over half of Philips’ seats filled. Despite the turnout, and starting late at 11:00, Rose and his new bandmates were in fantastic form. Rose did reference the fact that the last time he played in Atlanta, in 1987, he was arrested at the concert. Guns N’ Roses was scheduled to play the Omni in the early 90s, but the show was canceled. Kellen Heller opened up the night with Buckcherry following playing a full set. Guns N’ Roses took the stage about 30 minutes after.

Perry Julien, Perry Julien Photography: After holding tickets for 4 Guns and Roses concerts over the years and having Axl Rose cancel all 4 (including the Philadelphia Spectrum show that ended their last attempted tour), I finally got to see and photograph the latest version of Guns And Roses at Philips Arena Wednesday night. In typical Axl fashion, the show started late, but those who took the chance to buy tickets were treated to 3 hours and over 30 songs of classic Guns and Roses. These photographs hopefully capture some of the energy that makes Axl Rose one of the best frontmen in rock and roll!
