I think it's funny to see Axl Rose speaking to a crowd of non-English-speaking Japanese who can't even pronounce the band's name (listen to the intro beginning: the crowd chanting "Goons and Wohses!"). It made me wonder if they knew what he was talking about every time he makes a speech before a song, and I think maybe three people could understand English out there, since every time the camera pans across the crowd they look really bored and one girl is _combing her hair while looking at the floor_. That said, the performance - for anyone who can understand English - is a lot of fun. Axl's voice is pretty good for the most part.
There are a few complaints. In particular it's not as spectacular as I had hoped. Axl running around in short-shorts gets old really quick. I mean literally, he just runs from one end of the stage to the other throughout the whole concert. His continual use of the word "f***" as an adjective might grate those who like their music but have low tolerance for swearing (fortunately I am not one of these people - I really don't care at all).
The introduction is pretty neat. Slash's guitar playing is great as usual. Gilby Clarke and Duff McKagan have a fun time singing "Attitude".
Overall they put on a good show and for those of us who weren't into Guns N' Roses back in 1992 when this was recorded, we can now view this DVD/VHS as a reminder of why they were so popular - and why their music, to this day, continues to entice new fans (myself included).
My only wish? I would have loved a live version of "Sweet Child O' Mine"...but at least we got some of the other Appetite songs, and a few Illusion tracks (including "November Rain" - the soft rock ballad, appropriately placed last in the concert as the closing song)

Con oltre 90 milioni di dischi venduti, sono annoverati tra i musicisti di maggior successo nella storia del rock. Lo stile sonoro, l'immagine trasgressiva e le costanti performance dal vivo, li aiutarono ad occupare un posto di prestigio nella scena musicale tra gli anni ottanta e novanta. Hanno contribuito allo sviluppo dello sleaze rock e in particolare della sua variante sleaze metal, che mescola rock and roll, glam metal, punk e blues.
: - >Biography< - :
Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band, led by frontman and co-founder Axl Rose, has gone through numerous line-up changes and controversy since its formation. Guns N' Roses have released five studio albums, two EPs, one live album, and three music video DVDs within its career. The band is currently working on the infamous album Chinese Democracy, which has been in production for over a decade. Once released the album will be the first original recording from Guns N' Roses since the 1991 releases of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II.
Guns N' Roses have sold an estimated 90 million albums worldwide, including 39 million in the United States. The band's 1987 major label debut album, entitled Appetite for Destruction, has sold 27 million copies worldwide and reached number one on the United States Billboard 200. In addition, the album charted three Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including "Sweet Child o' Mine" which reached number one. 1991's Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II debuted on the two highest spots on the Billboard 200 and have sold a combined 14 million copies in the United States alone.
While glam metal was the leading genre in record sales, video charts and radio airplay, Guns N' Roses offered a grittier, more traditional take on rock music, and won many fans who admired their authenticity.
