  1. Road trip through Indiana

    OK, so despite me saying that we were going to skip it, we actually hit Lafayette on the way home. We had stopped in Indianapolis in the early afternoon to take my 2 year daughter to their famous kids museum and then found ourselves with a little extra time on our hands and we decided to make the trip to Lafayette. I didn't expect much and I wasn't disappointed. lol. It was a nice small town though. We ate at Wendy's. Of course we saw Axl's old house and I believe found the Arni's pizza that Axl used to frequent. Other than that we drove right out of town. Not much to see, but happy I went. Always had this stop on my list. These stories and pics are great. Thanks for sharing
  2. Road trip through Indiana

    Lol - cool video
  3. Road trip through Indiana

    Thanks for this! We decided to skip it since we are travelling with my two year old and three month old and to justify extra time in th car it would really need to be worth it and it didn't sounds like it was. We drove through Fort Wayne which was nice and then pretty much just stayed on the highway. We spent the night in scottsburg and as you say the drive has been fairly flat and repetitive. We hardly got to even see Indianapolis unfortunately. Kids slow you down. Lol. Today we are off to Louisville and then Nashville. On the way back we hope to get to some of those restaurants you suggested
  4. Road trip through Indiana

    Thanks for the link! Still not sure if it worth going. About 2 hours extra driving. As much as I would love to see his old town can't imagine staying there for more than 10 min. Lol
  5. I'm driving through Indiana from Windsor Ontario tomorrow on my way to nashville we are thinking of going through Lafayette to see Axls hometown. Has anyone ever been there? What's it like. I'm sure it's quite dead there but thought it might be cool to see his hometown. Do we know where his childhood house is? Secondly we will be stopping for the night in Indianapolis. This is off topic but has anyone been there before? Any good tourist ideas for us to do while we are there? We will only have a few hours. thanks in advance!

  13. Las Vegas 2000

    Glad the forum members are liking this post. One thing I forgot to add, is at the end of the show, Axl slammed his microphone down on the stage and it bounced right into my arms. It was spinning when it hit my chest and I couldn't catch it. It hit the ground and when everyone looked for it, it was gone. Some lucky fan managed to scoop it up and it still bothers me to this day when I think about it. I would love to have another shot at making that catch! It was just such a shock and it was also 3:35am PST for a guy who was coming from the east cost. I was also lucky enough to see GNR the following year at Vegas and while it was fun, it wasn't quite the same. Meeting up with the fans before the first show in 2000 was such an incredible experience that couldn't be replicated the following year. Plus, as people already mentioned, after not seeing Axl after so many years (other than the two or so pics of him playing with Gilby), the first HOB show was just something special What are people planning on doing before the April 8th show this year?
  14. Las Vegas 2000

    As we are likely approaching a new era with the GNR band, I wanted to look back at the first Las Vegas show with Axl and his new band. I was lucky enough to go that show. I was 22 years old at the time. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any friends to travel all the way from Toronto to Las Vegas with me just to see a Guns N' Roses concert. In fact, many of my friends thought I was crazy and they all seemed to think that the band just wouldn't be as good without the original members (looking back, they were right). However, the excitement of this show, after trolling the Guns N Roses newsgroups (run by Jeff Boreo(sp?)), along with the freshness of the internet in which everyone had their own GNR website on Geocities, Angelfire, etc., just made it something I had to see. I ended up finding two people on the internet to room with me - Dennis & Bob (you guys still around?). Again my buddies wished me luck with this idea. However, although I didn't know these two guys, the amount of discussions, speculations, etc. going on back then, made me feel like I knew these guys and that we had a camaraderie. I remember running into a bunch of people that I had spoken with on the web for a few years prior - Ravi, Jan, John M. It was a blast - although waiting in the line to get into the GA after Goo Goo Dolls finished at the House of Blues was not my favourite time, especially with security making us stand up! Is there anyone else on this board who also went to that show? What are your memories? I'm again going to Vegas to see them this year, however, now I am going with my wife and 2year old daughter. Although, I am again seeing them on my own. lol

    Personally I would think Section 10 is a better seat. For one, you have row B, so that right there is basically front row in that section. A plus there. Another plus IMO is its a straight view of the stage. Understandly 226 is cooler cause its Slash's side but you're also ALL the way on that side. Almost to a fault. Who knows what the stage is gonna look like and if it'll be an obstructed seat. And you're in row J there, so halfway up in an already high side seat. Which is why I'd take 10. You get a better view of the whole stage, as well video screens I would assume, whereas I think with 226 you'll either be watching a video screen all night or no screen and you're just on a weird side angle, possibly to a fault. Not to mention what was said that the sound is probably better in 10 since its supposed to fill the arena as opposed to 226 which is probably right next to a speaker, which to me is never preferred. I'll be in section 10 night 2 and I'm looking forward to those seats. Would prefer closer, but for what it is at least you're seeing the whole stage. If it were me, I'd definitely take those, but I also don't know the arena so what I was saying about high up could be wrong. And I would totally get if people want to be as close on Slash's side as possible, no matter where the seat is. But thats just my two cents. Thanks guys for all your help. Now my next question is would any forum member like my section 226 row j seat (for $$$) or like to trade for a ticket for the april 9th show? please pm me if interested.
