June 7 2013, 11:36 AM ET
by Christopher R. Weingarten

"Truck stop revenge" meant a relatively tame Governors Ball warm-up show

Last night, the beloved mess that is Guns N' Roses invaded Brooklyn Bowl, a 600-capacity venue/restaurant/bowl-a-rama, for an intimate warm-up gig to anticipate Saturday night's Governors Ball Music Festival, which they are co-headlining with Kings of Leon and Kanye West. For lucky fans quick enough on the draw — and willing to pay $150 — this was a unique chance to catch the one-time Biggest Band in the World play a room that's about to host Toad the Wet Sprocket. But anyone hoping to see the scrappy, gloriously sloppy, alcohol-fueled dervish that shimmied its way across the Sunset Strip club scene in the late '80s would be disappointed.

Dealing with a case of what he deemed "truck stop revenge," frontman Axl Rose apologized — sincerely, for what it's worth — to the crowd for his lack of energy. "I'm just trying not to throw up," he said. "It's literally the most fucked time I've ever had on stage." He skulked the stage like a rapper (probably not a coincidence from the dude who used to wear an N.W.A hat on stage), wearing three or four chains. Some dark sunglasses, a studded Diceman-style jacket, and an Indiana Jones hat never left his person for the nearly two-hour duration of the show, giving him the feel of a screaming shadow that wandered on and off stage during guitar solos.

The current eight-member incarnation of the band (including Use Your Illusion keyboardist Dizzy Reed, Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson, stunt guitarist Bumblefoot, and some other guys) was as professional as a Beyoncé show, showing the dependability of a band that just did a 12-date Vegas residency. (It's an odd feeling to be relieved and disappointed that the notoriously tardy band was ready to play a mere 20 minutes after their scheduled showtime). They are more Vegas sleaze than L.A. sleaze these days: You can see it in their neatly trimmed beards and neck tattoos, in guitarist DJ Ashba's post-Navarro steez. I wouldn't be surprised if the leather in their coats was from some other animal besides "cow." At one point, Ashba had a change of hat. Adding to the Vegas vibes, the crowd (we're wagering old and responsible enough to pay Brooklyn rent and still have $150 to blow on concert tickets) was receptive but polite, barely even hoisting camera phones. But did they ever sing along. Loudly. They shouted back "Mr. Brownstone," "Estranged," and "Live and Let Die" and were, naturally, loudest for "Sweet Child O' Mine." Stinson at least was a good throughway to their sloppy roots, leaning into "Used to Love Her" (which is basically a Misfits song anyway), and taking the lead on his own "Motivation" (which was the only time this sounded like a band you would hear at a Brooklyn club).

But f*ck all that, because no matter what happens, Axl Rose was still Axl Rose. He sleazily fingered the microphone stand, mumbled something about not even having a drink, did that trademark sway even if it was muted. He added extra screams in "Live and Let Die" that sounded well rehearsed, well harnessed, well controlled — but they were still that Axl scream. Of all the massive hits they played on that stage, the most important Rose moment was during the comparatively quiet Chinese Democracy deep cut "This I Love." Without the bluster of his band, you could hear the voice of Axl Rose, 26 years past its breakthrough moment, almost unadorned. You could hear the cracks and faults of time, you could hear the moments of sheer perfection that never left, you could hear the Joplin-meets-alleycat mewl that it's hard to believe was somehow the voice of rock radio and MTV next to honey-dripped stuff like White Lion and INXS. You could hear Axl Rose, a guy who could headline a music festival if he was backed by a Discman and a sparkler. We overheard one dude saying, "Worth every penny."

Guns N' Roses @ Brooklyn Bowl, 6/6/2013

Axl Rose's current version of Guns N' Roses did indeed play Brooklyn Bowl last night (6/7), an impossibly small venue for the band who will headline Governors Ball on Saturday (6/8). Taking the stage fairly close to their scheduled set time (they went on at 11:20 PM), the band (which still includes former Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson) opened with two Appetite for Destruction numbers, "You're Crazy" and "Welcome to the Jungle."

According to a poster in MyGnRForum.com, the set was cut a bit short due to Axl having some tummy trouble and "he apologized for not giving a lot of energy and said that he was doing his best not to throw up." Despite that, GnR still played a 20 song set, wrapping it up with "Paradise City." Did you go last night? Was it worth the $150 ticket?

You can check out video of "Paradise City" and a couple other songs, plus the set list and lots more photos from Brooklyn Bowl, below.

Jun 7th '13 by Colin St. John @ 12:49pm

If events like this one — a “secret show” announced at the last minute — are meant to create the ever-sought-after buzz, well, mission accomplished. Guns N’ Roses, in town for Governor’s Ball on Saturday, decided to schedule a warm-up of sorts. The Brooklyn Bowl isn’t small (cap: 600), but it’s not Randall’s Island: The allotment of $150 tickets for last night’s show reportedly sold out in 40 seconds. Once the reality of the event sunk in, excitement turned to speculation. Would Axl Rose even show up, and if so, when?

Even the DJ for the performance, ?uestlove, tweeted he’d keep the throng occupied from 9:30 “til Axl’s ready.” The crowd at Brooklyn Bowl had little confidence in being in bed before sunrise, either — a largely male crew watched the NBA Finals on a flatscreen instead of monitoring the stage. (It was a festival of blurred lines, the present reality of hedge-fund gentrifiers converging with leather-clad rabble rousers of a bygone era.) But, Axl & Co. made their first surprise of the night by taking the stage at 11:20 PM. The 9-5 stiffs breathed a sigh of relief.

The eight-man team banged through “You’re Crazy” off of Appetite For Destruction right out the gate, which was followed by another familiar riff, careening off the bowling-alley walls. “Welcome To The Jungle” made it readily apparent this wasn’t going to be a Chinese Democracy kind of night. This brought another sigh of relief: Throwbacks, greatest hits, and glory days were on tap. The Hells Angels who were gathered near the entry were all smiles.

“Jungle” made clear another factor: Axl Rose’s voice is still a force. Time hasn’t been too kind to his body or hair (remember the cornrows?), but his pipes escaped the halcyon days nearly untarnished. His singing, at one time, was one of the greatest instruments in all of rock and roll music. And, if the highest highs of last night were any indication, it still is. He was quite the scene: a leather jacket, of course, with sunglasses and a hat covering his face. He looked as if he could’ve been plucked off the corner of Wythe Avenue around the time Appetite was released, or picked to star in a reboot of The Invisible Man.

Guns N’ Roses, now, is a polished spectacle. It’s a cohesive, streamlined operation, one that almost makes you forget what year it is. (It is still a damn shame it’s not Slash up there taking solos on the speakers, his afro swaying in the wind. Another shame: no Buckethead, either.) The bit players appear to be the kinds of fellas who pick up the lady-leftovers from Bret Michaels or Tommy Lee, but they can thrash. Or, at the very least, the eight of them — adroit, with speedy fingers — can generate sonics on par with what five could accomplish 25 years ago.

Tommy Stinson happens to be in the cast of characters, plucking his bass along to “Estranged” and “Night Train.” In the latter half of the show, Axl took to going offstage, and letting the sidemen have a moment in the spotlight. Stinson played “Motivation” from his 2004 solo disc, Village Gorilla Head, but it was his other band that came to mind. An odd sight: a founding member of the Replacements now part of another ’80s troupe. The Replacements were, arguably, more influential and important than GNR; they certainly never battled on the charts or for the same audience. (Images of Can’t Hardly Wait came to mind, too, the film named after a Replacements tune and featuring a climactic scene revolving around “Paradise City.”)

“Civil War” was a major highlight; “Live And Let Die” felt rushed, and they steered “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” with just the right amount of balladry. GNR hit the holy triumvirate of covers when they came out for the encore with the Who’s “The Seeker.” The final song of the night was “Paradise City,” guys raising devil horns while ladies mounted their shoulders. Everyone’s iPhones were out. No shirts were raised, and after Axl threw his red microphone in the crowd, a bewilderment lingered. Then, everyone went back outside; back into 2013.

Youre crazy skulle være helt fantastisk. Desværre er der kun korte klip fra den sang på Youtube...
