Sound: The sound was great, although at sometimes it was hard to hear Slashes leads, but other times it sounded just like the recordings. The sound effects from Dave Kushner were excellent, and the bass wasn't overpowering. Singer Scott Weiland has a great voice, he can sing lots of different styles. It got a little hard to understand Scott when he used his megaphone. All around, the sound was awesome and it was sweet to see Slash using his guild double neck acoustic and electric for the song You Got No Right. He also busted out the Talkbox. // 8
Perfomance: They opened up with Sucker Train Blues, wich got the crowed roaring. they played most of the songs on the album, leaving out Loving The Alien and one more I think. They played three GN'R songs, Used To Love Her, It's So Easy and Mr. Brownstone. All three had the croud peeing their pants. Although Scott messed up on the lyrics for Mr. Brownstone, it was my favorite. They played Sex Type Thing and one other song I didn't know. As far as lighting, it was great. They had a huge VR logo in the background, and two screens showing close-ups of the band aswell as the camera going through funny coloured tubes (I'm sure all the people smoking cheeba were having a blast), and the sillouhette girls dancing. Scott had a little speech about pop music and how it suckes nowadays and we use it for advertisement or something. // 10
Overall Impression: Canada, Vancouver, Passific Coliseum, March 31, 2005. 3 Days Grace were good opening for VR. I was surprised by how long VR were on stage (more than 2 and a half hours). But the show started a little late. For 65$ it was awesome. Slash and Duff are awesome on stage, but Scott needs to get his act together, but I guess he brings a good atmophere to the crowd so I can't complain. I especially liked how they added a lot to some of their songs. I would certainly go see them again. // 10
