Guns N’ Roses unveil video footage dubbed ‘Not In This Lifetime Selects: Exit 111’
Guns N’ Roses featuring lead vocalist Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have just released some video footage from their seemingly never ending Not In This Lifetime Tour.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Guns N’ Roses‘ first tour stop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on their Not In This Lifetime Tour back in mid-July 2016:
“What Guns N’ Roses should have been able to do — and certainly what I had seen at my last Steel Panther show — was to only deliver stellar songs that people know and love. Instead, what Guns N’ Roses did was self-indulge playing songs that just about no one wants to hear. I am thinking in particular of “Attitude,” “This I Love” and “Sorry.” What Guns N’ Roses did was charge everyone an arm and a leg for tickets without playing all of the songs that people most likely wanted to hear. Songs that were omitted that would have been amazing to hear live include “My Michelle,” “Used To Love Her,” “14 Years,” “Yesterdays,” “Dust N’ Bones” and anything from the Live ?!*@ Like A Suicide EP. What Guns N’ Roses did was play four songs from their disappointing album Chinese Democracy. What Guns N’ Roses did was self-indulge in long jams, solos and snippets of songs from other artists. And by the way, why was McKagan handling lead vocals on one track?
By the time that Guns N’ Roses were playing “Attitude” and “This I Love,” you could see many people walking the aisles presumably going to the washroom or going to buy a drink. By the time “Sorry” was played, you could see people seated in their seat while in the floor section of the Rogers Centre. Clearly, this type of non-engagement is not what any band wants to see but Guns N’ Roses were masters at playing one great song before killing the show’s momentum with an unwanted unpopular track. Why would you follow “You Could Be Mine” with “Attitude” and “This I Live?” Why would you follow “Sweet Child O’ Mine” with “Sorry?” By the time that Guns N’ Roses were on their 18th song of the night — “Out Ta Get Me” — I was getting tired and even though Guns N’ Roses played some of their greatest tracks after that point such as “Nightrain” and “Patience” — my enthusiasm over their now 2.5 hour set had waned.”
