The set list is an excellent mix of Use Your Illusion & previous albums but must be complemented with it's sister release in Use Your Illusion II to get the full effect of this concert series in Tokyo, Japan. 'Nightrain' proves an energetic opener but it is not until 'Pretty Tied Up' that we see what this band is truly made of. Ironically this is possibly the best track on this video & it is from Use Your Illusion II. Also not to be missed is the infamous 'Welcome To The Jungle' intro & classic November Rain with Piano Solo.
