Velvet Revolver

Saw them the other night in NJ. Entertaining but pretty much a wall of sound with a lot of running around on stage. Riot almost broke out mid-way.

 

GnR tunes: It's So Easy; Mr. Brownstone.

STP: Sex Type Thing and one other (don't recall - sound wasn't terribly clear).

 

Cover: Wish You Were Here. Vocals were good.

 

Duff: Well....

 

Slash: should keep his shirt on these days.

 

Opening act: Modern Day Zero = 0 :rolleyes:

Hoobastank: I don't get it. :rolleyes::bor:

Hey, Modern Day Zero's a STL band... sweet. They aren't ahhh.... THAT bad.

 

VR, I remember someone a couple of months having a jam with Slash. Just as Angus Young needs to throw out the school boy outfit, Slash needs to put on a shirt.

 

Sounds like an alright show though!

Strange crowd.

 

Many young teens there to see Hoobastank. Many concerned parents trying to chapparone kiddies.

Lots of profanity, drugs etc.... Rock n' Roll :rolleyes: Many Drunk A-holes.

 

Many GnR fans that had no appreciation for Scott Weiland or VR. (Then why bother).

 

Guy in the front row taunts Weiland. Weiland goes back and forth with this guy. Guy continues to heckle him. Weiland spits on him.... Twice, followed by Duff, then followed by Slash who flicks a lit cig into the audience.

 

Duck! - Weiland decides to run off the stage - I'm thinkin (ok if the band walks off this place will erupt). He then runs to the center of the arena escorted by security, or tries to and is mauled by fans, gets space, then lectures the audience about "trust" and "some a-hols just want to be the star."

 

Whatever - the longer he remained away from the stage - the more animous certain elements in the crowd became. At this point - chapparoning parents were grabbing kiddies trying to sneak out of the place.

 

Calm - relative - resumed when Scott returned to the stage.

 

All in all it was like a Kiss concert without the make-up, and lots of profanity, then again Kiss' music is a bit more challenging.

 

Scott Weiland's voice was good but kept screaming into a megaphone - the music was mundane.

 

It wasn't good. The sound is terrible - PNC was designed for acoustic intruments and controlled volume performances. Its pretty outdated and rock unfriendly with its acoustic design.

 

Maybe I should give VR another chance.... Nah.

I'm surprised that they actually did some STP and GNR songs. I thought they were trying to get away from their former bands. Guess they are getting desperate for fans...

LOL! :thu:

Can't say I'm a huge VR fan. Their music is OK.
