Axl Rose Blows Vocal Chords In Tacoma Tour Opener

Kurt Loder of MTV News reviewed last night’s Guns N’ Roses tour opener in Tacoma and admitted “there wasn’t quite enough of it to entirely overcome some annoying technical obstacles that laid in wait.” Loder says, “The Dome is a boomy place at best; with only about half of its 22,500 seats occupied, as was the case with this show, the resulting sonic wallow often obscured the band’s remarkable precision.
