|GnR held best show of 2010
According to the votes cast by Blic readers at our official website, the best musical concert held in 2010 was the Guns N’ Roses show on 23 September at the Belgrade Arena.
The poll was entered by more than 4,000 visitors and the band with the second-most number of votes was Rammstein with their show of 20 March at the Arena, while third-placed was Faith No More’s performance at Exit Festival.
But for frontman/singer Axl Rose, Guns N’ Roses appeared in Belgrade in an unrecognisable line-up to the one which celebrated the band in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, the charismatic Rose and his well-rehearsed band played the right cards with the all-time hits such as Welcome to the Jungle, Live and Let Die and Sweet Child O’ Mine and lit up the atmosphere for the long-awaited concert by the Belgrade fans.
However, a considerable proportion of voters found Rammstein’s concert unparalleled this year. The German band’s show – cram packed with pyrotechnics and an elaborate set – played their hits Ich Tu Dir Weh, Engel, and Du Hast, which joined in a sing-along by 15,000 fans.
Also, a lot were delighted by the performance of Faith No More at Exit Festival this summer, with a memorable number being the band’s rendition of Serbian traditional song ‘Ajde, Jano.
