Guns N’ Roses Live @CenturyLink Field 8/12/16

Most of the concerts I can be seen shirtless like shown above here with both my Mom and Dad to the right. They had been divorced for a very long time but still remained friends so I thought it would be cool to surprise them both with floor tickets to G&R “not in this lifetime tour” which welcomed back Slash to perform together with them. Slash hadn’t performed with G&N since the mid 1990’s so this was truly a show to be at. The venue is massive with grandstands surrounding the stage and the floor lined with folding chairs. Also if you choose to head to the mosh pit which is in the very front you have to pay a bit more to be tossed around front row. I have seen them live many years ago at the Tacoma Dome with Mr. Bucket head substituting slash and the energy wasn’t quite as explosive as this. Axle still ran back and forth across the stage like he did back n the day and screamed the lyrics like you were right there in the 80’s 90’s listening to him belt out his signature voice in his prime. Slash was on point with several guitar solos that had your hairs standing up while we all head banged like the true rockers we are. They had Alice & Chains open and their new lead singer to replace the late & very great Layne Staley did an amazing job. All the classics from the chains including “The Rooster” letting us know the music of Staley you know ain’t gonna die. In summary, this legendary Classic Rock group still can rock a joint and my personal favorite “Welcome to the Jungle” sent chills across the arena which that song also is rumored to have some Seattle inspiration for the song from a time he visited here. One fist in the air with pointer and pinky erected out and bang your fuckin head!
