The only thing that would make this show AWESOME is if he had the stones to NOT play “Somebody that I Used to Know.”
Of course this Neo-Peter Gabriel fella might play the song two or three times over the course of the show. We’re just busting his chops here as the SM staff has watched a few other videos of his and they aren’t too shabby.\
On a similar note during the Rolling Stones’ Voodoo Lounge Tour in Fall of 1994, Smokin Monkey saw Blind Melon open. They did NOT play their one-hit wonder “No Rain” or “The cute bumblebee girl song” as Aunt Vicki called it that summer night.
FYI – deceased lead singer Shannon Hoon was related to W. Axl Rose and appeared in the “Don’t Cry” video.
FYI pt. 2 – Look for Axl wearing a Nirvana hat!
