Knockin' On Heaven's Door was also dedicated to Berlusconi (these dedications were unfortunate, in my opinion).

According to setlist.fm there was another dedication to Billy White Jr., designer of the Appetite for Destruction cross logo. Update: setlist.fm was wrong; there was only one dedication (to Berlusconi).

At one point during the song (5:43) Axl appeared wearing a gladiator helmet and then said that it was given to him by Buckethead a long time ago.

Reviews (all positive):

1. https://roma.repubblica.it/cronaca/2023/07/09/news/guns_n_roses_concerto_circo_massimo_live_da_venerati_maestri-407164020

(It says that there were flaws and signs of aging, but for that it was a performance as honest as in beginnings of the band)

2. https://www.panorama.it/lifestyle/Musica/guns-nroses-conquistano-circo-massimo

(Praises the band's energy and chemistry on stage)
