Setlist updated (source: HTGTH). Looks like Knocking On Heaven's Door wasn't played for the first time since... forever (!). Unless it's a mistake...

It's been confirmed that Knockin' On Heaven's Door wasn't played.

The last time that happened was on November 25, 2018 in Abu Dhabi (that show was cut short due to Axl being sick). Before that it was probably at Bridge School in 2012 (which were not "proper" shows, though) and Reading Festival on August 27, 2010 (cut short due to curfew). And then we'll have go way back to Use Your Illusion tour shows that were cut short.

Bad Obsession has now been played more than Yesterdays (131 vs 130), Reckless Life has been played more than Motivation (78 vs 77), and Anything Goes has been played more than Riff Raff (47 vs 46).

Btw, the band has played 40 unique songs on this tour, which is a new record (they did 39 unique songs in 2012).

Reviews and articles (in German, summaries are based on auto-translation):

1. https://euro.dayfr.com/local/483111.html

Summary: Musically great show, Slash still brilliant. Axl's voice not what it used to be (auto-translated excerpt reads: "We would hold it less against him if he decided to choose how he wants to sing. In the same song, he goes from a falsetto voice to a low voice. And when he tries to go high, his face is not far from turning scarlet (like on “Reckless Life”))", but he was in great mood, didn't stop moving around and smiling. The omission of Knockin' On Heaven's Door was an unpleasant surprise.

2. https://www.baerntoday.ch/bern/stadt-bern/axl-und-slash-gaben-drei-stunden-lang-alles-152360420

Positive, mostly relying on comments from fans (translated headline reads: "Axl and Slash gave it their all for three hours"). Some complaints about the organization.

3. https://www.nau.ch/ort/bern/guns-nroses-konzert-45-minuten-warten-auf-ein-bier-66538190

Same as above, more focused on the organization (translated excerpt reads: "Almost everyone agrees on one thing after yesterday's concert: Guns N'Roses with singer Axl Rose (61) and star guitarist Slash (57) put on a great show in Bern. For a good three hours, the old rockers gave it their all - and delighted the local audience."

4. https://www.derbund.ch/hoehen-und-tiefen-und-viel-arbeit-fuer-den-tontechniker-227813656974

Article behind paywall. Seems like a mixed review. Auto-translated headline and caption read: "Ups and downs and a lot of work for the sound engineer. Luckily it's not self-parody. The concert of the once biggest rock band in the world wasn't that bad." "The voice held - to some extent: singer Axl Rose did not disappoint in Bern. Guitarist Slash was masterful as always."

5. https://www.tagblatt.ch/kultur/konzert-guns-nroses-in-bern-selbst-die-truemmerstimme-kann-die-tollen-songs-nicht-zerstoeren-ld.2484645?reduced=true

Also behind a paywall and mixed (critical of Axl's "rough vocals").
