THE Guns N' Roses show
17 February 2005 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Guns N' Roses were always a bit "iffy" live. I've noticed that Axl's voice is very unreliable during shows and he can tend to go out of key and just start screeching, whereas on the actual albums it tends to be harmonic screeching. (He's always a great singer, but during live concerts he can just tend to get a bit rusty and tired.) However the famous Live at the Ritz performance in 1988 really solidified Gn'R as a great band and one that would stand the test of time. To this day their albums still sell a large amount on a weekly basis (I heard Appetite for Destruction sells over 20,000 a week worldwide? For an 18 year old album that's pretty good!) and entices new fans (their Greatest Hits collection was a huge success in the UK and did almost as well in America).

This is overall a really great show packed full of Appetite's material, and bootleg copies are available that have even more footage.
