Rare Australian double cd in an A5 3-panel digipak cover

By 1992, Guns N’ Roses had risen up the ranks of music hierarchy to become one of the biggest rock bands of their time as well as one of the best-selling artists of the year. After the release of the double album Use Your Illusions I and Use Your Illusions II in 1991 – which was their first full length release since their debut album Appetite for Destruction, the bands success skyrocketed them to further worldwide acclaim. Following this, they embarked on the 26 month long Use Your Illusion tour, which would be one of the longest tours in rock history and was littered with scandals and controversy thus making the band infamous across the world. This album features the second part of their third night at the 150,000 capacity Tokyo Dome, on February 22nd 1992. You Could Be Mine, November Rain and the bands instrumental version of the Godfather Theme, lead by Slash, opens this album. The Godfather Theme has become an iconic and instantly recognisable solo that has been a staple of the bands setlist ever since. Rocket Queen, Move To The City comes next before Axl completely controls the visitors when Knocking On Heavens Door rolls around. With a crowd singalong interspersed with reggae jams, that is headed by Rose and the prominent bass licks of Duff Mckagan, the entire stadium can be heard to repeatedly scream the words Knock Knock Knocking On Heavens Door. Then the shows ends with Estranged and Paradise City which proves to be another memorable moment as it features Slash running around the stadium, past the legions of fans as he belts out the songs unforgettable lead licks and solo. The band is at their peak with this stadium setting. It captures the visceral energy and tantalizing skill of all the bands members that made their shows so exciting, and ultimately today provides a refreshing respite in the characterless sea of modern rock.
