Sound: Sound was amazing, Scott Weiland really knows how to put on a show and has such feeling in his vocals, it was amazing. For the few songs in which Slash used his Mockingbird it overpowered the lyrics a little so you couldnt always hear them as well. Being in front row of the mosh pit made things a little louder but you couls still hear all the music well. Being an obsessive fan, I noticed no mistakes in the music. Slash also preformed some songs with one of his Les Paul's and it sounded really amazing. Duff used a Black Fender Bass. // 8

Perfomance: The performance was so good! Scott completely worked up the audience, as did Slash, Duff, Dave and Matt. Aside from most of the songs on the Album (Contraband) they performed Guns N' Roses songs 'I Used To Love Her' which I couldn't hear that well, 'Mr. Brownstone' which had the whole audience jumping all the way through which sounded f--king amazing, and 'It's So Easy' which was the first of GN'R songs played that sounded amazing. Slash, Scott, and Duff introduced a couple of the songs and made the stage look insanely fun. The lighting was insane, there were lights flashing all over the place. They closed up with 'Slither' which sounded 10x more amazing live than on the album. // 10

Overall Impression: The gig was played at the Bill Graham Civic Center is San Francisco, CA on April 19th. Hoobastank opened, and actually weren't too bad! Loved everything about the show, it was all amazing. The tickets were $39.50 and online had a $9.50 handling fee. The show was definitely worth the money and more! But shirts and gear at the show were overpriced but worth it too! I recommend going to one of their gigs cause its something you just cant forget, even at the end when no one was there and there was a huge puddle of beer where the mosh pit was. I'd definitely go to another gig of theirs. // 10
