At one point Axl says "People are talking because they think they know what's going on inside Guns N' Roses, but they have no idea."

He also talked about New York City: "New York City, my new Paradise City" and later on "I've been here in New York a little while, and like a good student I've been studying hard, studying every night, sometimes until the wee hours of the morning. (Big Smile and cheering) New York has almost killed me a couple times studying".

Then when he played his new songs, "I heard a couple of you singing the new songs. Downloading motherfuckers!".

Before T.W.A.T., Tommy comments to Axl, "I'm having a really good fucking time, are you?" to which Axl replied, "You have no idea how much that meant".

Robin crowd surfs after Nightrain.

Axl said he had completely lost his voice Saturday, everything was gone, but Sebastian Bach pointed him to a vocal and throat expert and that it saved the day.

He said he was freaked out because he wouldn't be able to do the show if he voice never came back.

He talked about Chinese Democracy. Said the fans can hold our breath longer than David Blaine (a magician who tried a magic trick underwater last week and failed) and Axl appreciated that.

According to Axl, Bumblefoot just joined a week prior to the show.

Axl dedicated the show to Sebastian Bach (for saving the day) and Beta (because it was mother's day).

Axl said they (himself and Tommy) were both saying "I am so sick of you" to each other just a few days ago but then he said that at the show they were having a blast together.
