  1. I know, I've been to Brazil. I fail to understand how they put non-speaking English people at tourist booths all over the country, and have no English speaking people working for ticketing agencies. It's rare to find someone who does speak English.
  2. Buying tickets for shows in South America is a bitch. They're a bit behind the times there. About 15 years, I reckon. It also doesn't help how no one iin the tourist or ticket industry speaks any English.
  3. Surprised about the reunion, but still feel the same about Guns N' Roses. It died in 1993. I don't understand why everyone's raving about the performances when the frontman keeps sounding so utterly dreadful.
  4. Yay. Another topic to find something else other than Axl to take the blame for the lack of studio material.
  5. The way Axl sings Civil War sounds as if it's some parody act.
  6. She didn't lose her son to Guns N' Roses. She lost him because he's a drug addict with a serious lack of self control. But 'ey, gotta put GnR on the cover or it won't sell, right?
  7. Them being 3 days apart has nothing to do with the size of the stage. Bands touring with a stage the size of GnR usually have 2 of the same stages with them. When 1 stage is being used the other is being build up in a completely different location, which is why bands sometimes travel from 1 side of Europe to the other. Ireland could be today while Berlin could be 3 days later.
  8. Why not? Bon Jovi played Barcelona and San Sebastian but left out Madrid in 2011. I'm sure there's other examples. It's all got to do with logistics, the stages will probably be shipped from Lisbon and what goes on behind the scenes and after the shows is planned differently than to what most people on here seem to think.
  9. Ahoy isn't so bad. It's rather small and I very much doubt Guns N' Roses doing an arena tour in Europe when they can do a stadium tour instead. Also doesn't make sense when it comes to the stage: It wouldn't fit in Ahoy and maybe not even in Gelredome. I've a feeling it'll be the Amsterdam Arena considering promoters need to put a certain amount of acts in the venue. If it's the arena it'll mean that I will skip it and travel to another country instead. I've seen loads of shows all over the world and in lots of stadiums but the Dutch Amsterdam Arena is easily the worst when it comes to acoustics and atmosphere. There just isn't any. Fingers crossed it'll be at Malieveld or Goffertpark. Terrible to get to but great atmosphere.
  10. No, they can't. Aerosmith struggle to sell out the smaller arena's in Europe. They only play large crowds when playing festivals. Apart from that, they're mostly playing 10.000-20.000 people venues and rarely sell them out anymore.
  11. Not according to their own site. I could buy tickets for Aerosmith with a creditcard but had to pick them up by showing my passport and then they still asked for cash. These gnr tickets were sold by a different company which were never able to make te purchase work. Customer service was useless and when I tried calling them today they just wouldnt answer. Its apparantly a normal way here. Ive asked two people from Peru for help and both said its always rubbish here. I am missing out on this show because they cant get the ticket sales together.
  12. I have no idea. I could buy tickets for Aerosmith with a creditcard but had to pick them up by showing my passport and then they still asked for cash.

  13. For the ones saying this show is sold out... It isnt. Tickets have been available for months. It was impossible to buy them though. Creditcard was never accepted online and at the booth they had no idea how to sell them to me. I am in Lima right now and couldnt get tickets despite them being available on the website. I am from Europe and have been down with food poisoning so Im sure I missed out on some options but buying tickets here for anything is a bitch.
  14. Because it's very, very hard to sell out venues like the ones they're selling out in the bigger countries. And insurance is very high over there, thus it's not worth the risk when they're not going to sell out or sell at least the amount of tickets they need to break even.
  15. A farewell tour will pretty much mean the same setlist with all the greatest hits in it. Like the one on the last 15 tours. Steven's refusal to mix it up is annoying, the entire band wants to shake things up and there's Mr. Tyler who refuses to sing anything different than what we've heard loads of times before. I get that you got to please an audience, but there's no reason why 80% of the set needs to stay the same.
