Gold Top 78 posted on MyGNRForum, “I can’t believe the amount of people at the show moaning about it. Axl said he was ill but still put on 2 hour show. I wonder what these people will think the next time they go to a gig and get a 2 hour show that’s the full set with no members sick. They should just have been thankful they got a show and still got to see Axl and Slash in the flesh after 25 years. ”
