Rare 1991 double cd in thick jewelcase

In August of 1991 Guns N Roses performs two shows at The Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Both nights were sold out. It took the band just four hours to sell 13000 tickets for each night. People have re-written the history by thinking Grunge and Nirvana was the biggest thing on the planet at the time. Sure Nevermind was the birth of Grunge but the fact is that it was dwarfed by the release of Guns N Roses Use Your Illusion I & II and Metallica’s Black album. These two bands were the biggest thing in pop music in 1991 and Metallica’s Black album tour had started before Grunge exploded and Kurt Cobain managed to kill himself before the Black Album tour ended. For Nirvana it was their career while for Metallica it was just a tour supporting one of their album. That should probably give some perspective on how we judge history. The releases of Black Album and Use Your Illusions was enormous cultural events with midnight store openings, five-star reviews, multi platinum sales for both albums and both bands doing mammoth tour, even doing a tour together. So when Guns N Roses hit Sweden it was front-page news. A photographer from the Swedish newspaper, Expressen, took photographs (without permission) of the band while they were in the Daily News club and the bands bodyguards tried to stop the photographer, but they failed. The “prohibited” photo made it onto Expressen’s first page! Expressen gave the shows five out of five. This album was recorded during the second show, which took place on the 17th of August and more controversy struck. When the show was suppose to start at around nine o clock, Axl comes out of the elevator at the Sheraton Hotel, but instead of going to the car that’s waiting for him, he goes and plays roulette for 1.5 hours. After that he goes back up to his room. Five minutes later he comes back down and goes to the car. On the way to the venue, he tells the driver to stop. There was a festival in Stockholm called Vattenfestivalen and Axl wanted to see the fireworks. The show dont start until after eleven o’clock. During Knockin On Heaven’s Door, Axl says; Now on this one maybe you people that have been falling asleep the whole fuckin show, on your feet up here could sing along too…. If you’re bored, you should’ve saved your money and gone and seen the fireworks tonight. The shows in Stockholm was performed befored the the albums had been released and most of the set was made up of songs the fans knew nothing about and there were many surprises up their sleeves. Fans didn’t know what to think when Guns N Roses performed tracks on piano etc. Of course all these tracks became major success but back on that date it just seemed weird that this dangerous sleaze gang did things that seemed, at the time, so far away from what the record buying public had discovered and grown found of with Appetite For Destruction.
