  1. The "I need a ticket..." part looks like a photoshop to me.
  2. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Just got Zakk Wylde - Book Of Shadows II delivered. I didn't even know it was coming out on vinyl, but apparently it's an FYE Exclusive at least in the US. I really, REALLY hope the first Book Of Shadows gets a release eventually!
  3. I'll be going to this one too thanks to the kindness of others! I updated the OP with everyone who said they're in so far.
  4. Not at all! I'm all for differing opinions. That's the stuff that makes the world go 'round.
  5. Right on. Please understand that I do get how my opinion is crazy to others. On top of that, you're certainly not the first to tell me so haha. Just know that I mean absolutely no disrespect to Slash in stating that opinion. I could be wrong, but I honestly don't think I've ever insulted Slash with respect to his guitar playing. It's never been about that for me. I don't feel the need to insult someone who left GNR just because they left GNR. If I was a fan of them while they were in GNR, I remain so after.
  6. I get that all of that represents your opinion but what you have to realize is that it's just that: your opinion. I'm one that falls into the camp of missing Robin. He was and still is my favorite guitarist GNR has ever had. I saw GNR with Slash 3 times before Robin was in the band and once so far after Robin was in the band but Robin remains my favorite. You choose to think Robin was never a member of GNR which you're welcome to do. In the same regard, I'm welcome to not only see him as a member of GNR but my favorite on top of that. None of that is disrespectful to Slash because I think Slash is great. I don't have to think Slash is awful just because I like Robin better overall.
  7. I'm one of the ones who likes CD better than any other GN'R album. Never once have I considered that to be "downplaying the greatness of the AFD lineup". The AFD lineup is legendary and of course GN'R wouldn't have even had the opportunity to record and (eventually) release CD without AFD and the lineup that recorded it. Having said that I do prefer CD over every other GN'R album and in doing so I haven't become any less of a fan. My favorite GN'R album just happens to be one that was recorded by a different lineup than the AFD lineup. This business of someone else not being a "real fan" just because they have a different opinion than you is hilarious to me. By your logic, GN'R has only released two EPs and one full length album and anyone who likes any other material released under the GN'R name isn't really a fan.
  8. Ticket Demand?

    Unless a LOT of tickets sold this afternoon, there's still quite a bit left for Detroit. I'm going and I'll enjoy the show either way, there's still many tickets in the lower bowl from what Ford Fields website says.
  9. Please take all Axl/DC based discussions to the proper section.
  10. Art Of Anarchy To Release Album, Tour With New Singer

    Wow, that's quite a downgrade is Scott's.
  11. Axl - Thunderstruck Full Rehearsal

    The biggest negativity I heard when Axl/DC was confirmed was from a friend who was concerned the Detroit show wouldn't be as good because Axl would have worn his voice out already. I'm with you though. I think if anything, it'll just keep him in shape to really kick ass throughout the GN'R tour.
  12. Your concerts in 2016

    Wanted to go to that and totally forgot it was coming up. My buddy went to the meet & great. I would have gone to that just to meet Nuno.
  13. 2 versions about live era

    See / hear the 0:12 mark of this video for exactly what 007 is talking about.
  14. Ticket Demand?

    That's my guess, yeah. The TV commercials said "One night, one band". I know they've added second dates in some markets but for some reason I still think there's no opener. I'm guessing it'll go down exactly as you said. 8:30 on the tickets with an on stage time of anywhere between 9:10 and 9:30 with probably a 2.5-3 hour show to follow.
