The Quireboys opening for Guns n’ Roses in Basel, Switzerland

I had to laugh when I saw that the Quireboys would open for Guns n’ Roses in Basel. Back in the day, when Gn’R filled the soccer stadium next door, guess who opened for them? Guess who was 12 and wasn’t allowed to go but had a poster for the show in her bedroom? That’s how I first heard of the Quireboys…

I mean hell yeah, I’m all for history repeating itself. History went even further repeating itself, in that the photo restrictions were so ridiculous that essentially none of us that had travelled to Basel to shoot Axl got a decent shot at it: The photographers were divided in 2 groups. Group 1 got to shoot 1.5 songs, and group 2 got to shoot the other 1.5 songs. From the soundboard. Yes, you had to beat your way through a nearly sold-out crowd to and from the board in the middle of the effing song. So, eff you, here’s another picture of the Quireboys. From the pit. Full 3 songs.
