The Hot Press Newsdesk, 18 May 2012
All was forgiven in The O2 last night as Axl & Co. played a blinding set, and thanked the crowd for "not throwing shit".
GnR kicked off just over an hour after their expected start time and wowed the audience with a classic collection of songs that spanned close to three hours.
Despite his recent leg injury, Mr. Rose managed six costume changes and appeared in fine form. The band, arriving on stage to Massive Attack’s ‘Splitting The Atom’, blasted through a batch of classic hits including ‘Welcome To The Jungle’, ‘Sweet Child O' Mine’ and ‘Paradise City’, as well as a smattering of covers such as ‘Another Brick In The Wall’, ‘Baba O’Riley’ and the Pink Panther Theme.
Thin Lizzy had warmed up the audience with a stellar set earlier in the night. New permanent guitarist Damon Johnson proved himself a fine addition on classics such as ‘Still In Love With You’ and ‘Emerald’. The Ricky Warwick-led outfit also announced a Dublin Olympia show on December 13. Tickets, priced €35.50, €36.50 and €39.50, are on sale now.
