Guns N' Roses was fabulous; U.S. Bank Stadium, not so much

A rock legend-caliber performance, stuck in a glass echo chamber with very long beer lines.

Reader Matt Van Engen responds to Guns N' Roses prove you don't need to like each other to rock out at U.S. Bank Stadium:

Fantastic coverage. I sat mid-floor, and in the seats the sound wasn't bad. But on the drink run an hour in I felt bad for everyone in the glass echo chamber everywhere else.

The magic of the band did come together and superseded the total frustration with the venue. Felt bad for the Deftones. But didn't get to see them, because I waited in line their entire set for the evening's first adult beverage.

While Axl eventually hit his stride, it seemed the sound techs were more at fault than him. Extended guitar solos from the aging Slash were great and I wasn't even bothered that it seemed to happen on every song. They absolutely delivered a Rock Legends-caliber performance.

They get a solid 9 1/2. U.S. Bank Stadium, however, gets a 2.
