Scotts singing was a bit off at the beggining for the opening song, Sucker Train Blues, which it seemed he was having trouble keeping up, but after that he was almost perfect. Slash's guitar mixed with Dave's rhythm had a brilliant balance.

Sound: The sound, apart from the supporting acts, was almost perfect. Personally I feel that Duff's bass could have been a touch louder on certain songs but still it was almost there.

Perfomance: The support bands (Biffy Clyro and The Datsuns) Who I am realy big fans of, warmed up the crowd very well. I think I even remember seeing one fan crowd surfing during The Datsuns. The guys runnig around all over the stage kept the crowd at the front amused while the lighting effects gave an overall good impression. Covers of GN'R's "I Used To Love Her" and "It's So Easy" seemed to be played at almost evry gig but they added "Mr Brownstone" into the mix which the crowd loved. // 10
Overall Impression: Apart from a brief riot outside the Hammersmith Apollo in London (09/01/04) during the show, the atmousphere was quiet nice. The openers Biffy Clyro and Datsuns warmed up the crowd really well and deffinatly won over a few fans in the crowd. Very little to hate about the show and so much to love, to much to write so I will just say, next time buy a ticket, which were only about 25 quid. Overall good show and will be going next time! // 10
