If you're wondering if the band cooks live, here's a clip from February at Rock N Rio 2011.
Axl's got a little middle aged paunch (hey the dude's almost 50), and listening to more of the show (which is posted in it's entirety on Youtube), I wonder if Rose's voice will hold up for an entire tour, but you gotta respect the pimp hat and the porn 'stache. Also, Brazilians really love to sing along...
