I have waited over 20 years to see them (The original band) and most of those years were hopeless since it appeared they would never get back together. I understand that it’s Axl, Slash and Duff but the new additions are ridiculously talented and the concert in Newark went beyond my expectation and a 3 hour adrenal rush. It was awesome . Thank you GnR
