Guns and Roses plays arenas and stadiums. They are a headliner, at WORST LN Which but I really doubt it. What they lack in talent they make up for in the fact that they don't play shows that often. There are LOTS of people who live in the TN area who would get a ticket for Roo to see this cause they know damn well they will likely never play the area again.
I saw GNR do an arena show in Toronto about a year and a half ago. The arena was probably 85-90% full. The show was a HUGEEEE spectacle but ran wayyyy too long. They played for a little over 3 hours, the material from Chinese Democracy was received lukewarm at best.
However, when they did go back to the old stuff, the band Axl has killed it. They played a lot off of Appetite and did Estranged/November Rain/You Could Be Mine/Double Talkin Jive and a couple others from Use Your Illusion.
It was pretty cool to see Tommy Stinson playing bass with the band, I loved him in The Replacements. Having seen both lineups I will say the energy level from the early 90s is still there, however the music is presented much better live now, albeit more polished.
