This was an awesome show.  Like Wendy said, it was totally intimate.  It was especially nice that the guy in front of me was shorter than me.   Time to sleep.

great show! i was able to get tickets this morning... anyway crowd was great, vr sounded awesome, only new song was pills, demons, etc. everything else i've already heard. they only did one encore, though. would have liked to see them change up the setlist. i was less than a foot away from scott when he ran over to the right side.  :D however i did get my phone ripped from my hands for sneaking a pic... they also made me delete all my pictures though.  :x should have lied and said i didn't take any. i'll write more later, really tired now.

What a great show, the energy in the room was incredible!  Lots of people I recognized from other shows, it's good to see the fans ended up with the tickets.  I didn't see any jaded record company types.  The band seemed to be having fun and Scott did a backbend so low he looked like he was limboing.  I haven't noticed that Contraband girl tattoo that Slash has on his inner forearm before, is it new?  Scott sounded so good, they did Get Out the Door, which I loved.  Mike Dirnt was upstairs, I saw him go backstage after the show to talk to the guys, he signed autographs too.  The show was projected onto the huge billboards on the roof of the Whiskey so you could have watched the whole show from outside.  Here's the setlist, I'd post mine but I don't have my camera right now:

Let It Roll
Do It For the Kids
Sucker Train Blues
Superhuman
Last Fight
She Mine
Vasoline
Pills, Demons & etc.
Get Out The Door
Fall To Pieces
Just 16
It's So Easy
She Builds Quick Machines
Set Me Free

Encore
Psycho Killer
Slither

Yah, this was the best VR show I've seen. I was front row, directly in front of duff's mic the whole night(which is a departure from my usual spot in front of slash) and I have to say, that I haven't seen them so "on" up untill this night. Scott seemed really into it at this show, much more so than other times I've seen them and he mentioned how he could feel the energy coming off the crowd. Pills, Demons, Etc was amazing live. They soundchecked it probabaly around 4-5 times earlier in the day. Also, another really cool thing was that they soundchecked "patience" and I think they were contemplating playing it as an instrumental with scott just singing the outro because when we walked into the club there was a sheet with the lyrics to the ending(the whole "yeah-e-yah, well I need you, ooooh I need you, etc) which he also sang during the soundcheck. Either way, it was great hearing them playing it in soundcheck and maybe it'll eventually make their set as an instrumental. Back to the show, Slash was his usual amazing self(sporting an old black death vodka shirt) and I have to say, I haven't seen Dave so into it since I was at the free hollywood parking lot show back in '04. He was going nuts at this show, headbanging like crazy and just going wild in general. The setlist was a pretty good mix up, 7 libertad tunes, 6 contraband tunes and 3 covers. I ended up getting two of duff's picks, a stick from matt and one of scott's towels(if you see the pictures with him with the towel on his head and his hat over it, that's the towel I got) and me n' my girl finally got to meet duff before the show. He was the only member in the band we hadn't met up untill that point. Anyhow, what an experience this show was. Oh by the way, I'm not sur eif anyone mentioned it but the entire whisky was Velvet Revolver-ized. They put big VR banners over all their stuff outside, so that's all that showed...just VR. It was awesome, finally seeing the whisky with pictures of a real fuckin rock band all over the building.

Just got home.   I left a little early cause I'm feeling like shit.    (flu)
it was nice to see everyone that tried to get a ticket actually got one.   I recognized a few people from the line on Monday.   It was a very energetic show, I swear the entire building was bouncing.   People were packed like sardines.    To me the venue seemed to be a bit smaller than the Roxy which is tiny.  There were kids of all ages.   This little boy who was about 8-9 I think was rocking out in front of me.    There was no barrier between the fans and the stage which made way more intimate.   As I was driving by the venue, I felt the music exploding out of place.   Even if you didn't have tickets you could have easily enjoyed it from the outside. anyhow have to crash now.

oh yeah I'm glad I didn't take my camera cause security were being camera nazis   
Hey,hope u r feeling better had the time of my life up front as personal a concert experience as I have ever had and I wrote a review...take care

This show at the Whisky was great... very small venue. I walked into the venue as VR were coming down the stairs onto the stage, the show started right when I walked in.

There really was no where to stand and the venue looked over sold to me but then again I've never came in to a show so late. This was the smallest place I've ever seen Velvet Revolver play at and it was really HOT in the Whisky. There really wasn't a bad spot to stand.. except for me who is short and can't see shit from behind people except their head.

I finally found a nice spot by the bar to watch the show :D 

VR was on FIRE, extremely tight. Unusually tight, like I've never seen them this TIGHT!!

I'm so glad I went, missed my Wendybird who was in there somewhere.

Yeah that totally sucked cuz people that got there all late ended up being all the way against the front rail, which was pretty unfair, but fuck it! I was on Slash's side 1 person behind so i was good! At that point i didnt care where i was standing cuz i was just happy that i met most of the guys from VR before the show!! :D
