Review in The West Australian:
Review: Guns N’ Roses play long, loud show to strangely quiet Perth crowd at Optus stadium

Indigo Lemay-Conway
Sat, 19 November 2022


Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Guns N’ Roses know how to play long and loud.

And for that effort you’d like to think the audience would give back in spades _ sing, scream, shout, roar, rock, rumble. Maybe even riot?

But at Optus Stadium on Friday night the crowd was … quiet.

It wasn’t the band’s fault. They were almost flawless as they played through their array of tunes, kicking off with It’s So Easy, Mr Brownstone and long-time favourite Welcome to the Jungle which instantly caused some members of the crowd to mumble “this was the song from that Thor movie”.

But mumbling was the best the masses did for more than three-quarters of the show as barely anyone sang along or clapped during the songs until the very last few tunes.

They were almost flawless as they played through their array of tunes, kicking off with It’s So Easy, Mr Brownstone and long-time favourite Welcome to the Jungle which instantly caused some members of the crowd to mumble “this was the song from that Thor movie”.

So much so that when the band went off after playing their “last song” _ or, in other words, cue the encore _ next to no one chanted for another tune to be played. Just mere claps and a few shouts.

It could have been that rain drizzled on and off all night, or that the band waited until the last half hour to play their best songs, or that they didn’t really address fans to hype them up.

But either way, when you think of a Guns N’ Roses concert, it’s hard to picture a quiet crowd. And this was despite the hard rockers possibly playing the longest show Optus Stadium has ever hosted.

Next to no one chanted for another tune to be played. Just mere claps and a few shouts.

Rivalling the length of an AFL match, the group kicked off their Australian Stadium tour with a three-hour show as punters braced the out-of-season icy weather (November Rain? Don’t worry, it’s coming).

But many almost missed the opening act as they were sent to multiple spots across the precinct to get their wristbands so they could get in — myself included.

Each band member performed incredible solos which gave 60-year-old frontman Axl Rose a chance to slip off stage for wardrobe changes — which happened at least eight times.

Throughout the show, Axl was dressed in Aussie-inspired attire with the Indigenous and Australian flags sewn onto his jeans, as well as many different shirts with “From the Land Down Under” on it, as well as a good-old jar of vegemite!

The audience did perk up when the band put on a surprise cover of Blackbird by the Beatles, which lifted the vibe dramatically for Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, Sweet Child O’ Mine and November Rain.

And by the end of the mammoth show, the audience seemed more exhausted than any of the over-50 band members, with Slash still knocking out riff after riff until the last strum of Paradise City.

Maybe, having shaken stadiums around the world for almost 40 years, the band can cope with a long night, compared to a Perth crowd not used to ‘November rain’.

Absurd has now been played more times than New Rose (66 vs 65) and Hard Skool has been played more times than Glad To Be Here (41 vs 40).

The American hard rock band arrived in Perth on Sunday, November 13 in their private Boeing 777 Jet with 120 band and crew ahead of the massive stadium tour which began on November 18 and will continue till year-end. With concerts planned in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Sydney, and Melbourne, the band is expected to rule Australian stages in the coming weeks.

The band performed on Saturday night, November 12 at Singapore's National Stadium in front of a record-breaking crowd of delighted fans before their arrival in Australia.

Paul Dainty AM, President & CEO of TEG DAINTY, promoted the Singapore show and said, “GUNS N’ ROSES were on fire on Saturday night, the crowd was insane and loved it!
