Sound: Axl Rose sang very well, his impressive voice hasn't changed since the band's good old days, the guitarists were very good, of course they didn't play and act the same way as Slash did but they did their job well, the music was great and the atmpsphere was enjoyable. // 8

Perfomance: The audience could not enjoy the music because the band was 4 hours late. The show was great, starting with Welcome To The Jungle, next followed a mixture of the "Appetite For Destruction" and The "Use Your Illusion I and II" albums, the mixture of fast songs were impressive, many entertaining scenes, such as each musician playing solos, all songs were played well. There was a lot of decoration, there were disco style lights, flames and "mini bonfires" lit the stage. // 9

Overall Impression: The show took place in the Budapest Pap Laszlo Arena in Hungary, May 31st 2006. The gig was opened by a Hungarian band named "Sex Action", a very amature band, that did not play very music. The show was great, the music and entertainment was at its best, unfortunatly not a single audience member (including myself) could enjoy any bit of the show, the band had arrived 4 hours late, they started at midnight instead of 8 PM. The band's 4 hour delay made everyone sick of waiting, the arena was filled witht he smell of alcohool and cigarets. The band acted very unprofessional, they had to start in Budapest, but due to the singer getting "high" the band left Milan at 10 PM! People even strted booing their favourite band. This is certainly an unforgettable moment, too bad that I don't mean it in a good way, this definatly made me sure that I will never again go to a GN'R concert. // 3
