Rose Bar, New York
NOTE: Det andet akustiske show i New York. Dette sted var endnu mindre end Varvatos. Halvvejs under koncerten så flere tilskuere en mistænkelig fyr med en kniv bane sig imod scenen, hvor Axl gav den gas, og Sebastian Bach reagerede med det samme og kastede sig over den bevæbnede mand. Sikkerhedsvagterne klarede resten. Axl & co. fik det først at vide bagefter showet var overstået.

  1. You’re crazy
  2. Mr. brownstone
  3. Used to love her
  4. Welcome to the jungle
  5. Street of dreams
  6. Sorry
  7. It’s so easy
  8. Patience
  9. Rocket queen
  10. Catcher in the rye
  11. My Michelle
  12. Knockin’ on heaven’s door
  13. Whole Lotta Rosie
  14. Sweet Child O' Mine
  15. Nightrain
  16. Paradise City

Guns n’ Roses Rock Fashion Week With Second Secret NYC Show

2/16/10, 11:50 am EST

For the second time during New York Fashion Week, Guns n’ Roses staged a late-night secret show in a tiny private venue, performing at the Rose Bar in the wee hours of Valentine’s Day night in front of a celebrity-filled crowd of 150 people. Like Gn’R’s surprise gig at the Varvatos store where CBGB used to be located, Axl Rose and Co. didn’t hit the Rose Bar stage until 1:30 a.m., delivering another hits-filled set list that was almost identical to their Varvatos show, New York Magazine’s Vulture blog reports, with the major change being “Paradise City” replacing “Night Train” as the night’s final encore.

Check out photos of Guns n’ Roses Chinese Democracy world tour.

Packing Guns n’ Roses’ stadium-sized performances into a small venue is likely a difficult task, and the leap from arenas to ultra-trendy clubs did affect the Guns’ Rose Bar show as Rose struggled to lift his voice above the instruments, Vulture writes. Mickey Rourke, Adrian Grenier, members of the Strokes and Zoe Kravitz were just a handful of the celebrities that were treated to this exclusive Guns n’ Roses performance, which had been rumored since last week.

A scary sidenote to the Rose Bar show comes from the New York Post, who report that a seemingly drunk man with a knife somehow infiltrated the extremely private show, but the ever-watchful Sebastian Bach managed to get the man thrown out before any violence ensued. A witness told the Post, “The man walked in while Guns n’ Roses was onstage and pulled out a knife and flicked the blade out. Sebastian, who was standing on a banquette said, ‘Nobody is getting anywhere near my man Axl Rose with a knife,’ and went after him.”

Check out Guns n’ Roses’ Rose Bar set list below:

“You’re Crazy”
“Mr. Brownstone”
“Used to Love Her”
“Welcome to the Jungle”
“Street of Dreams”
“Sorry”
“It’s So Easy”
“Patience”
“Rocket Queen”
“Catcher in the Rye”
“My Michelle”
“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”
“Whole Lotta Rosie”
“Sweet Child o’ Mine”
“Nightrain”
“Paradise City”

f*ck!! The NY shows were insane!! Love the free form laid back vibe n' both were completely different from r view. The fans were AMAZING!! John (Varvatos) was really great! And to keep CBGB's rockin'?! Badass!! Goin' into Rose Bar was rough on some. Lotta best left memories from the old hotel. The gig helped w/some o' those. Felt really good on stage. (We actually "LIKE" playing together n' I absolutely agree some things should b a lot less complicated than others made them in the past that's why we're together n' other's by their own accord ain't here.) We all had a great time, it was a madhouse!! Thanks to everyone who came out n' those who helped put 'em 2gether. Good to have a short break n' gear up 4 South America. I LOVE NY!!

On another note Guns is now managed by Doc McGhee n' we're off to a fun start. Big welcomes! It's nice to have the support!!

Elsewhere:

Canadian tour n' Slash banned clothing nonsense: which I addressed live as soon as it happened but hey fake allegations from unreliable sources bein' negative n' all especially w/us n' these issues got more weight to n' 4 aholes. Fabricated from a 2001 bs RS piece from Rock N' Rio. Bottom line Never happened, end of story. f*ck TMZ, ContactMusic, Spinner (I got ur attitude.)

Goin' on late at Rose Bar nonsense: Nope, Nopity, Nope!! 1:30am on time! U got played!! We were asked to do a show for fans n' friends etc. We were told when to arrive n' when to play between 1 an 2am which we did exactly. We didn't perform for the press or their deadlines other than that they were there. We do our best provided we r treated in the same manner to be polite n' cordial. The past can kiss ur ass, not gonna happen here. Under other circumstances n' advance arrangements things may have been or be different, w/these shows they weren't.

Goin' on "hours" late in Toronto nonsense: Based on set change etc. went on 1 hour 8mins late w/circumstances beyond r control n' last minute physical injuries from earlier performances (which took that hour to find ways to deal with) n' could have cancelled the performance not "hrs". Apologies were made. If u have a problem w/any of that or especially if u weren't there f*ck off.

Not doin' surprise shows for the hardcore fans nonsense: Sorry some feel that way. Saw a lot at both gigs singin' every word in every song. We made efforts to get several if not all fans who contacted us n' were in town into these gigs. We also didn't know most of the guests as we don't live here n' for that matter what makes some internet fan more hardcore than whoever else anyway, oh that's rt...nothing!! Some just like 2 bitch 2 bitch. So if ur complainin' n' u drink beer, today I recommend a Lucky or perhaps a Red Stripe...if ur still peeved...again, f*ck off.

I sweat nonsense: On ur mama! Really? That's what u write about? No sh*t! I work hard, it's good for ya n' I smell better than u!!

Takin' shots at Slash n' reunions over Haiti nonsense: Never happened. Wasn't aware of any comments from the old lineup.

So in closing...f*ck the LA Times, TMZ, Contact Music n' Spinner. I don't need "forgiven" for alleged n' fabricated nonsense. I've no respect for mean spirited aholes gettin' paid talkin' sh*t at other's expense or irresponsible biased partisan politics wanna be journalism by dated hacks. Go on! Back ur boy! But when he says he never killed no one that ain't exactly true. Yeah, that's right, stone cold. So if we happen to play your neighborhood or for that matter anywhere at anytime regardless of the circumstances, presales, public sales, give aways, even free shows consider yourself uninvited. It's a free country but you're formally n' publicly not welcome.

Bottom line is we ain't makin' efforts to rain on ur parade why piss on or take cheap shots at r's. Oh that's rt...how u make ur livin's all that counts not others, whatever. U ain't above anyone regardless of who or what corporation u work for n' unfortunately most of u'll get to learn that the hard way.

Everyone else...

Thanks for ALL the positive comments, press n' tearin' it up w/us!! It was absolutely fucking AMAZING!! Can't wait to see u out there n' we absolutely appreciate your support!!

Thanks again 2 everyone involved n' everyone that was rockin' out 4 makin' everything SO fucking great!!

What an experience!!

Peace!!

Axl-

Here's To Axl Rose and the Bunch of Random Dudes Calling Themselves Guns N' Roses Getting the Hell Out of Town
By Zach Baron Wed., Feb. 17 2010

So Sebastian Bach saved Axl Rose from being attacked by a maniac with a blade the other night at the Gramercy Hotel's Rose Bar. "Nobody is getting anywhere near my man Axl Rose with a knife," said the one-time Skid Row frontman, and from his position atop a banquet, he summoned security to cast what may in fact have been a very sensible individual out into the cold. It was Valentine's Day at the Purple mag afterparty, and the band of misfits who call themselves Guns N' Roses were blasting the assembled celebrities with a two hour set not unlike the one the band had visited on an unsuspecting crowd inside a John Varvatos store last week. Fashion Week ends tomorrow and with any luck, it will take Axl Rose with it.

Because even as various comparatively youthful fashion mafia members like the Opening Ceremony kids and Erin Wasson are sensible enough to fill their events with guests like the Dirty Projectors and Yeasayer--bands that whatever you might think of them, are at least having a real moment of their own--the venal and dark heart of Fashion Week's grown-up contingent is laid bare by the industry's compulsion to fete a washed up, fake band, over and over and over again. And make no mistake: if Chinese Democracy and the stooge-filled line-up (sorry Tommy Stinson) who parade around pretending to be Guns N' Roses didn't convince you that it's past time for Axl Rose to abandon this charade, allow the videos to change your mind. They are awful. Even in a world of fucked up YouTube audio and blurry cameraphone footage, we can calibrate. We can make these distinctions. And anyone who is being honest with themselves knows that this band's two stops in the city have been long and abysmal.

But of course this is a spectacle that belongs to Fashion Week, an event that can't help but gravitate toward the most ostentatious, cynical, and exclusive displays of so-called glamour and nightlife. Which is fine: nobody is asking Oliver Zahm to hang out at Death By Audio. But enough with the excitable sightings of a band who basically exists at this point to make the hordes of models and magazine editors surrounding it feel special, like they're living some sort of magical moment. They are not.

They are chasing the myth over the reality, the thing they held dear in their youth over whatever might be vital and real today. This isn't a sin--fashion is all about this stuff, as we heard over and over again the wake of Alexander McQueen's suicide. But there is genuine escapism and then there is an overweight and physically taxed band calling themselves Guns N' Roses playing bad versions of decades-old songs, to audiences so exclusive that Axl Rose couldn't have gotten anywhere near the door, circa 1986. Where is the magic in that?
