    GUNS N' ROSES Fans Take Out LA Weekly Ad On Eve Of Concert Appearance! - Dec. 29, 2001

    GUNS N' ROSES fans from around the globe came together to show their support for Axl Rose and his revamped backing crew by taking out a full-page ad in the current issue of LA Weekly welcoming the singer's return to the concert stage (GNR is scheduled to play Las Vegas on December 29th and 31st). The advertisement, which contains a message of support signed by each person that contributed towards covering the cost of running the ad, can be viewed at this location. In related news, former GUNS N' ROSES axeman Slash has indicated that he may spend his New Year's Eve in Las Vegas checking out Rose and the boys in concert at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino at the second of their two performances there. "After all, I have never gone to a GNR concert before,” the guitarist joked when asked about it at www.snakepit.org.

    GUNS N' ROSES' Axl Back To Old Tricks At Vegas Gig - Dec. 31, 2001

    Notoriously temperamental GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose reportedly walked off the stage twice at the group's December 29th concert at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino after his mic went dead during the song “Oh My God”, according to live reports posted at www.mygnr.com. The sound problems were eventually sorted out, but not before guitarist Robin Finck threw his guitar and Axl's mic stand in disgust over the technical issues at the gig. When the show did eventually continue, Rose reportedly performed the songs without directly addressing the audience, save for a lengthy 15-minute tirade prior to “November Rain” in which Axl called the gig "the first show in 10 years that I wanted to do" and referred to last year's New Year's Eve Las Vegas appearance and the subsequent Rock In Rio gig as concerts that he was “asked” to do. The singer then went on to say how former manager Alan Niven forced them to tour in 1991, which resulted in the latter's getting fired. With regards to the European tour, Rose reportedly claimed that he had “no idea” a tour had been scheduled. "One day I was sitting at home on the Internet and I found out that the GNR tour was cancelled and I had no idea that I had a tour," the singer was quoted as saying at the gig. As for the band's long-awaited Chinese Democracy CD, Rose stated that "we're in the studio doing this album and I can promise you that we're gonna deliver, and it's gonna be out of the ballpark… We've been working on this album and I can tell you we're doing our best and that's all I can promise." The singer also stated, rather unbelievably, that guitarists Buckethead and Finck had never met before rehearsals for the House Of Blues gig last year, and he made derogatory references to ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan and guitarist Slash, as well as other former GNR members, using the band's celebrity status for themselves, which was met by a chorus of boos from the crowd.

    Here is GUNS N' ROSES' set list from their performance at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Saturday, December 29th (note: “Night Train” was also reportedly included on the official set list, but ended up not getting performed):

    01. Welcome To The Jungle
    02. It's So Easy
    03. Mr. Brownstone
    04. Live And Let Die
    05. Oh My God
    06. Think About You
    07. You Could Be Mine
    08. Sweet Child O' Mine
    09. Knockin' On Heaven's Door
    10. Madagascar
    11. November Rain
    12. Out Ta Get Me
    13. Rocket Queen
    14. Chinese Democracy
    15. The Blues
    16. Patience
    17. My Michelle
