A great set including almost every song from Ride On album (except Highway Zero). Duff McKagan plays bass and also sings lead vocals in Chinese Rocks while Rick sings Diddley's classic called Pills like he used to do in Ju Ju Hounds years. Taz plays a great drum solo before Parasite. An incredible performance of Primitive Man with Duff on backing vocals what gave this song much more power. Before Hometown Richards played a fantastic guitar solo which was mainly build on the slow part of Here Comes The Rain song. Photos Poster 1 Poster 2. Article

04.21.2000 - Nagoya, Japan, Club Quattro audio/video recording: ?
set: Paradise City [encore] info: Not sure if Paradise City was really played on this show but one of the fans who has been on other japanese shows said they really did - this guy named Alex taped shows in Tokyo and Osaka. This show was probably played at Aichi Kinrou Kaikan where Ju Ju Hounds played their show seven years earlier. For Duff and Izzy concerts on Japan Tour 2000 were the first together since 1991 when they played in Guns N' Roses, so right now they were thinking about playing some GNR tunes, Izzy: "Since I left, I've never played any Guns N' Roses songs. I played in Japan one time with Duff and we tried Paradise City but we couldn't do it and keep a straight face". Photos Poster
