Guns N' Roses backup band, Loaded, fails to fill the house at Pacific Coliseum

A half-empty stadium plays audience to ex-GNR member Duff McKagan's band Loaded.

It could be that the beer is more popular than the Seattle rock group. Or perhaps everyone is still chugging their one-beer allowed per person and getting back into line to get appropriately, uh, loaded before Guns N' Roses takes stage.

Actually Loaded does not suck, they have put out a couple really good CDs, obviously they are more used to playing smaller venues but anybody who watched them without paying attention, and viewed them as just another unknown warm up band needs to check them out further before saying that they suck!

Chalk it up to the Coliseum trying to make things as inefficient as possible.
