Gone because the script wasn't compatible with other stuff here.

There should be a little + (and a little -) to the right side of my post you can use instead though Smile

Review in The Tennessean, Oct. 14, 2019

Exit 111: A little cold didn't slow Guns N' Roses from a fiery festival close

By Matthew Leimkuehler  | The Tennessean

Manchester, Tenn. — Not in this lifetime, eh?

How about not once or twice, but three times — in four years?

Guns N' Roses returned Sunday to Middle Tennessee to headline the final night of Exit 111, a carnival of headbanging hard rock held at Great Stage Park in Manchester (aka the beloved Bonnaroo 'Farm').

It marked the band's third Volunteer State appearance on the marathon "Not In This Lifetime" tour, which reunited estranged members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagen in 2016.

And — considering the band played at Nissan Stadium in July 2016 and an indoor Bridgestone Arena in November 2017 — it was probably the chilliest Tennessee show for the riff-tossing rock staple in recent memory.

Don't fret, though. A 45-degree bite didn't slow Slash and company from nearly three hours of rock 'n' roll excess. After all, who needs a jacket when "Mr. Brownstone" can keep you warm?

"You buncha frost bitten (expletives)," Rose jested as the band churned through an extended take of its "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" cover.

With Rose howling and Slash shredding, GNR played mostly to what the weather-worn audience needed as three nights of fist-raising exuberance came to a close on The Farm. The set showcased all of GNR's roller coaster history, from the murky to the revered to the side projects in-between.  

Sure, the polarizing "Chinese Democracy" made an appearance. But, so did seven cuts off "Appetite for Destruction," the band's time-tested debut album that remains lauded as a must-hear concoction of blues guitar guitar, punk aggression and rock melody.

With a familiar howl, Rose and the band opened with the blistering "It's So Easy" before soon riding into the aforementioned "Brownstone" and modern sports anthem "Welcome To The Jungle."

"OK, we're gonna calm things down a little," Rose joked as he introduced the not-so-calm "You Could Be Mine." "We're gonna live you the smooth, love sounds of WGNR."  

Second only "Appetite" was the band's taste for cover songs. They knocked out the expected cuts ("Live and Let Die," "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"), offered something a little off the beaten path ("Black Hole Sun," "The Seeker") and hit a few nice surprises ("Slither," an acoustic rendition of "Wichita Lineman).

Rose danced and dodged his bandmates as he switched between snarl and shriek, leading rose-nosed onlookers through "November Rain" and "Nightrain." Slash — with guitar playing that's arguably worth the price of a day's admission alone — entertained with poise through the extended 1991 epic "Civil War" and boisterous cornerstone "Sweet Child O' Mine."

Fans who didn't let a toe-nibbling cold end their show early were treated to a twangy "Paradise City" and blaze of fireworks to close Exit 111 — a final shot of musical warmth against the chill that waited to take over.

FESTIVAL REVIEW: Exit 111 Festival 2019 – Manchester, Tennessee

WORDS BY MEIJIN BRUTTOMESSO

Exit 111 Festival, aptly named for the highway exit in Manchester TN, made its début October 11-13, 2019. Arriving in powers of three, it was three days of riffs, rock, and rowdiness. One part Metal, one part Rock, one Southern rock, and a whole lot of nostalgia, the event hosted three stages: the Rise Above Stage (honored suicide awareness and featured many of the Classic rock/Southern rock acts), Heaven Stage (the main stage and home to the headliners), and Hell Stage (spotlighted mainly heavy artists).

The usual site of famed Bonnaroo Festival (‘The Farm’) welcomed thousands of headbangers from all corners of the country with a ‘Tennessee fall:’ a heatwave that quickly turned into precipitation and frigid weather throughout the following days. But, heat, rain, and plummeting temperatures did not stop some of Rock ‘n Roll’s biggest names and biggest fans. Check out some of the highlights from the weekend and see the ‘Pro’s and Con’s list’ below, as there is always room for improvement for a first-time festival.

[...]

The three days finally culminated as Guns ‘n Roses prepared to rock the Heaven Stage. The suspense leading up to Guns ‘n Roses’ performance was amplified by an extended animated introduction looping across the stage’s big screens for what seemed like Chinese Democracy-forever. In the end, it was worth the wait, as GnR played a solid 3 hours, keeping dedicated fans warm with a fiery set and fireworks in the 40-degree weather. The ‘Not in This Lifetime’ show delved deep into the band’s history. Complete with Slash’s epic guitar solos, rock anthems like ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ ‘Mr. Brownstone,’ ‘Rocket Queen,’ ‘Sweet Child of Mine,’ and Civil War,’ some deeper cuts, ‘Estranged’ and ‘Double Talkin Jive’ for Use Your Illusion fans, nods to the bandmembers’ side-projects with Velvet Revolver’s sultry ‘Slither,’ and arena-style covers of ‘Live and Let Die’ (Wings), ‘Attitude’ (Misfits), and ‘Black Hole Sun’ (Soundgarden), GnR closed Exit 111 with a bang.

Overall, the inaugural Exit 111 weekend was extremely memorable, showcased a line-up that a true rock lover could only dream of, and got off to a successful start with minimal kinks. It might be a tough string of bands to beat, but one can only wait and see what is in store for the coming years!

EXIT 111 PRO’S:

Excellent line-up! It set the bar high for forthcoming years.

Clean and environmentally friendly! Trash and recycling receptacles were ever-present and utilized by concert-goers. There were also numerous vegetarian and vegan options!

Affordable ticket prices. The line up was worth every penny.

EXIT 111 CONS:

Press area was a bit confusing for artists. Several musicians roamed in not knowing who they were meeting.

Extremely late set times. Friday and Saturday nights went well past midnight, and those who were traveling long distances were often unable to stay for the full sets.

Needed to have more staggered set times. On several occasions, equally appealing bands were pinned against each other at the same time.

LIVE REVIEW: Exit 111 Festival 2019 – Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyrd & more

By Tommy Sommers

Exit 111 is a new festival that started this year off with a bang. Many were skeptical when it was first announced because the line-up was so good, but the festival delivered without a single cancellation.

The grounds are huge, it’s where the Bonnaroo festival takes place with three big stages, food, beer and lots of other attractions.  They even had a huge tent that had on all the sporting events live, all weekend from Baseball to college and even the NFL.

[...]

Last up Guns N’ Roses whom I have not seen since 1987.  Chaos is the term I would use to describe the crowd. I can’t remember the last time the security worked so hard. Not a lot of crowd surfing but people just going nuts.  I think some of their songs have such a deep impact on people like “Sweet Child ‘O Mine” and “Paradise City” that they lose their minds when they hear them.  For me the concert was too long at 3 hours. They played too many covers like “Wichita Lineman” and “Black Hole Sun”.  I would have preferred to hear “Patience”, “Right Next Door To Hell” and “Pretty Tied Up”. But again, none of this mattered cause the fans loved it and it was the perfect way to close out a great festival.

From The Pit To The Crowd: EXIT 111 Festival Day 3 Review

By Bernard Cana

[...]

The festival wrapped up Day 3 on the Heaven stage with the legendary Guns N’ Roses. The band who started in 1985 was the main headliner and closing out the EXIT 111 festival. The fans waited with anticipation to see Axl Rose (vocals), Slash (guitar), and Duff McKagan (bass) back together again on stage. They were given a full three hour set time and they took full advantage of it playing 22 songs that night. Some of the setlist included well-known “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “Welcome to the Jungle”, “It’s So Easy”, “Mr. Brownstone”, “Rocket Queen”, and “November Rain”. They also performed cover songs including “Slither” by Velvet Revolver, “Black Hole Sun” by Soundgarden, and “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan. Guns N’ Roses left the crowd wanting more and was a solid close to the festival.

EXIT 111 was three glorious days of amazing bands from classic rock, hard rock, and heavy metal. It was a spectacular lineup for an inaugural festival. The weather was good, except for Saturday evening’s freezing cold, and the fans looked happy throughout the weekend. I’m looking forward to hopefully another EXIT 111 festival because it can only get better from here.
