“USE YOUR ILLUSION TOUR” which rock monster ruined the whole world like a monster. The best professional shot that contained the great heyday is on the press DVD. What is contained in this work is “Multi-camera Pro shot” of “Rosemont perform on April 9, 1992”. Although it is a professional shot known as a staple from a long time ago, it is a gem that contains the finest master discovered in recent years in a permanent preservation double press press DVD.
Its quality is one of the finest in the 1990s. It is natural that era pattern analog shooting is natural, but the freshness preeminent master has little aging deterioration, color development and detail vividness are also scary and beautiful. There is nothing like line noise and tracking noise, it is the image beauty that spreads just like the sight of 25 years ago. Of course, with regard to shooting and camera work, it has been a perfect time for only a long time to defend the throne of the tour delegate. There is almost no cheers on the stereo sound board directly connected to the desk, so it gives a half step in the “sense of the workplace”, but the direct feeling of super death is a terrible instead. Even the guitar is brilliant even with the rubbing sound of strings, Axel Rose’s vocal is plucked into the ear even though it breathes. While some of them have been cut “Paradise City”, this work is literally the longest and best version. In a sense, it is a more intense pro shot work than the official video “USE YOUR ILLUSION I & II”.
GUNS N ‘ROSES painted with such a quality shows exactly the monster that truly surrounds the world without regret. In the first place, this “USE YOUR ILLUSION TOUR” is a huge tour that spans two and a half years, including two performances in Japan. Tours that span several years now are not uncommon, but at that time they were unquestioned. Since it is a good opportunity, let’s first imagine the position from the whole tour.

· January 1991: South America # 1 (2 shows)
· May 1991 – August: North America # 1 + Europe # 1 (48 shows)
“September 1991 release” USE YOUR ILLUSION I & II ”
“1991 November withdrawal from Isy → to 13 persons including horn”
· December 1991 – February 1992: North America # 2 (23 performances)
· February 1992: Japan # 1 (3 performances)
· April 1992: North America # 3 (4 shows) ← ★ Coco ★
· April – October 1992: Europe # 2 + North America # 4 (47 performances)
· November – December 1992: South America # 2 (9 shows)
· January – February 1993: Japan # 2 + Oceania (6 performances)
“Return to the band formation of only six people”
· February – April 1993: North America # 5 (29 performances)
· May 1993 – July: Europe # 3 + South America # 3 (27 performances)

This is the way of “USE YOUR ILLUSION TOUR”. The rosemont performance of this work is the last day of “North America # 3” which will be the official picture immediately after “Japan # 1”. It is a concert of 80 performances in all 194 performances. It is just around the middle of a long road life and it’s about time we are exploding now.
That Yokozuna sumo wrestling is rare in rock history. Calmly, at that time, Axel was just 30 years old, but the dignity that reigned as a darling of the times is enormous. Even if I sing or talk, even if I pitched the piano, I became a furious summer and diverged a large aura from the whole body. The big crowd goes crazy with that stroke. I said earlier “There is little cheers”, but the great cheers that are understood even if it is recorded in the distance far away are crazy.
Camera work focuses on such an accelerator, but keeps the front line with Slash & Duff as a kitchen. On the dub ‘s gorilla beat, slash’ s neat guitar rides, Axel ‘s chameleon voice sings barking … …. Whether the horn is covered, the chorus will decorate, the magic involving the sound of the three nuclear people will not shake. I want to scold myself at the time when my nose was rough, such as “I do not like rock bands in large households”, “Izzie is gone” etc. While the magic of GUNS was firmly engraved, it was said that he was reluctant to say what kind of luxury … ….
Especially tasty is “Coma” and “Do not Cry” followed by two streaks. “Coma” is now the standard reorganization GUNS, but at that time there were only a few records of music by Hong. You can see that intense rare / take with a pro shot. And in the next song “Do not Cry”, Shannon Huong from BLIND MELON participates in the guest. At the time it was still under development for his debut work “BLIND MELON” and a glimpse of the appearance of Axel dueting to make the unknown companion the world. No way, no one can imagine that the death of inoperation will come after three years.

Both rabbits and horns are the highest peak ever in the history of a large standard pro shot. The longest and best master who pushed the great heyday of the monster GUNS N ‘ROSES over 3 hours. A pair of 2 packed that shine in a press DVD on a bun. Axel / Slash / Duff’s revisited immediate “right now”, one to make it hotter than ever. We will deliver it to you at hand over this weekend.
ロックの怪物が怪物らしく全世界を蹂躙し尽くした“USE YOUR ILLUSION TOUR”。その大全盛期を収めた極上プロショットがプレスDVDで登場です。本作に収められているのは「1992年4月9日ローズモント公演」のマルチカメラ・プロショット。以前から定番として知られるプロショットですが、近年になって発見された最高級マスターを永久保存の2枚組プレスDVDに封じ込めた逸品なのです。
そのクオリティは、90年代でも最高級のもの。時代柄アナログ撮影なのは当然ですが、鮮度バツグンのマスターには経年劣化もほとんどなく、発色もディテールの鮮やかさも怖ろしく美しい。線ノイズやトラッキング・ノイズの類もまるでなく、まさに25年前の光景がそっくり画面いっぱいに広がる映像美なのです。もちろん、撮影・カメラワークに関しては、長年ツアー代表の王座を死守してきただけはある完璧ぶり。いかにも卓直結なステレオサウンドボードには歓声がほとんどないため“現場感”では半歩譲るものの、その代わりに超ド級なダイレクト感は凄絶。ギターはそれこそ弦のこすれる音までもが鮮烈で、アクセル・ローズのヴォーカルは息づかいまでもが耳元に流し込まれる。既発の中には「Paradise City」がカットされているものもありますが、本作は文字通りの最長・最良バージョン。ある意味、公式映像『USE YOUR ILLUSION I&II』よりも強烈ななプロショット作品です。
そんなクオリティで描かれたGUNS N’ ROSESは、まさに世界を蹂躙する怪物ぶりを遺憾なく見せつけてくれる。そもそも、この“USE YOUR ILLUSION TOUR”は2回の来日公演も含め、2年半にも及ぶ巨大ツアー。現在では数年にまたがるツアーも珍しくありませんが、当時にしては破格でした。良い機会ですので、まずはツアー全容の中からポジションをイメージしてみましょう。

・1992年4月:北米#3(4公演) ←★ココ★

これが“USE YOUR ILLUSION TOUR”の道のり。本作のローズモント公演は公式映像にもなった「日本#1」の直後となる「北米#3」の最終日。全194公演中80公演目のコンサートにあたる。ちょうど長いロード生活の中盤に差し掛かったあたりで、本領爆発中なタイミングなのです。
特に美味しいのは「Coma」と続く「Don’t Cry」の2連発でしょう。「Coma」は現在の再編GUNSでこそ定番となっていますが、当時はホンの数回しか演奏記録がなかった。その激レア・テイクをプロショットで見られるのです。そして、次曲「Don’t Cry」ではゲストにBLIND MELONの故シャノン・フーンが参加しています。当時はまだデビュー作『BLIND MELON』の制作中であり、無名の仲間を世に知らしめるためにデュエットするアクセルの姿が垣間見える。まさか、この3年後に非業の死を迎えるとは誰も想像が付かずに……。

兎にも角にも、大定番プロショットの史上最高峰バージョンです。怪物GUNS N’ ROSESの大全盛期を3時間以上に渡って押さきった最長・最良マスター。その輝きをプレスDVDにパンパンに詰め込んだ2枚組。アクセル/スラッシュ/ダフの再訪が目前に迫った“今”を、これ以上なく熱くする1本。今週末、あなたのお手元にお届けいたします。
