Review in Le Parisien (translated by me), June 21, 2006:
Axl Rose was long overdue

Paris-Bercy Sports Palace (XIIe), last night.

By Sébastien Catroux

When Axl Rose, the singer of Guns N 'Roses, took the stage for the first time in France since 1993, he had a lot to make up for. Expected around 9 p.m., he finally showed up at 10:40 p.m. - a record of its kind.

While waiting for him to turn up, all kinds of rumors were flying around, between beers, in the aisles of a packed Bercy. "He's going to sing just for half an hour, like a few weeks ago in London,” some said. "He fired his guitarists and his drummer yesterday. Eventually only the drummer came back and they’ve been rehearsing, if not learning, the songs all afternoon. That’s why the opening bands couldn’t rehearse and why they’ve been so late,” affirmed others... This version, in line with rock 'n' roll romanticism and the man’s notorious instability, was the most popular among the soothsayers.

And then, at 10:40 p.m., as the boos and the gestures of discontent were multiplying, Axl Rose, the only original member of the hard rock band known in the early 1990s as Guns N’ Roses, took the stage. "I've been preparing three years for this tour”, he stated after “Welcome to the Jungle,” an appropriate show opener for the occasion, followed later by: "I feel better. Five songs ago, I still felt bad.” Miraculously, his old hits, sung in a beautiful high-pitched voice, still worked: "Live and Let Die," a Paul McCartney's Wings cover, as well as the iconic “Sweet Child O 'Mine" (despite the awful guitar solo intro).

"Tell the truth, you didn't think we were coming, did you?” he said at one point, without even getting an angry reaction from the – dulled by the wait and the heat - audience. After an extended version of Bob Dylan’s "Knocking on Heaven's Door," the pianist went to cover Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust". Would Axl Rose come back to sing? Fortunately, he did. At 12.50 a.m., he was still on stage.
