yeah, that billboard will likely stay there until they make an announcement for an LA show later this year. 

my guess is that the last week in May (right before the tour starts up again) is likely when they will announce some more dates.

Seems like a huge waste of money if that's the case. But I wouldn't put it past them. :lol:

Another possibility is a 30th anniversary re-release of Appetite. I wouldn't mind seeing the album remastered

There is a remastered version on youtube, just not official:

It is still a waste of money. Those kind of billboards are very expensive. If it means an anouncement about a show in L.A. put a billboard just a few days before and not several months ahead of the event they mean to advertise. They could spend that money feeding people in Africa if they don't need it for themselves

Do you know what mastering means? It doesn't mean that some random dude just puts mp3 files ripped from cd in Adobe Audition ect. and then just changes the volume up a notch.

There is an interesting opinion from Eddie Trunk about if Guns could record a new album, it's in YouTube, I kind of understand his point and I agree with him. It's like if they record new music would be a unique case in music history. This is the video:

He is saying that saying stuff like Steven cant play is utter bollocks. People ASSUME this, there is no basis for it! Steven "is ruined". What..HOW? Steven NEVER failed to play well or failed a tour apart from things unrelated to drugs such as breaking his arm, even during the heroin days of the AFD tour and the drinking binge during the loaded 2011 opening tour he played very well, what the hell is there to say he can't do it? He NEVER could not play at a show, always did his part, no matter what. That rumour is just plain dumb and has no basis to even exist.

Now he is sober, plays great as always, even rehearsed himself to play not only UYI but also CD songs, and he played a longer GNR set than Guns did in Argentina (!) with a tribute band, over 3 hours, including stuff he never got to play from UYI. And there's still people doubting, because "drugs". Yeah no. He sure as fuck can do it, there is no bigger motivation in this world for him to do a whole tour than playing with these guys, no amount of free pussy or booze would be better for him than having this gig back. He wants, is able to, and should be there.

And Izzy can't just "bail". Everyone playing in this big a tour is legally bound in a contract to play until it expires. All the issues he had with the original band in 1991 like Axls random outbursts are gone now. The only issue now is the cash being made.

This is the best post I've seen posted here in a long time. I totally agree and see no reason why Steven couldn't play except for maybe axl and his bullshit.

I just finished reading Steven's mother book, it gave me a different perspective of the Steven's inconvenience for been on the action, he was an addict, been clean for 3 or 4 years isn't a signal he is not to get into drugs again, it's been 30 years fighting against drugs, since he was 10, every time he tried to come back he screwed up, he needs kind like a nanny to keep him off a dangerous environment that can make him go back to a get down (did you see the huge bar they have in the plane?) . I love Steven, now I love more to his mom, I can't  really spoil the book but contrary to anything we believed, Steven and Axl are more than in good terms, and now I think that someone is making to Steven (and his family)  a big favor not including him in this tour. (even that I think they could do some extra efforts to having him a little bit more in the big show without risks for his health, but maybe I'm asking to much)

Harsh reality but completely agree!!

 

Would make no sense to record while they are such a big draw. 2-3 years they will need a new album unless they are happy with playing arenas and occasional festivals.

Respectful Remasters by Metalmucil

"Good ears. I actually discussed this a bit with a dude in one of the other comment threads. Its my fault. I had one of my crossovers for a multi-band compressor set too low, so the guitars were triggering it while the vocals took the hit. A little mid-side EQ would have fixed it, but I missed it. goose your high end a bit and they should come out more."
 
That guy knows what he's doing. That it's not official doesn't mean that the person who did it doesn't know shit. :)
Actually, his remasters are pretty good.

Agree....I.am going to see them in the Alamodome this fall,  but if they keep touring I really would prefer to see them in a more intimate arena like in Kobe, Japan compared to a huge ass stadium. :shades:

personally I love seeing a rock band tour stadiums in 2017. It's quite a feat and I love the large crowds and energy.

I think at this point what would make people happy is a AFD line up reunion, set list changes, interviews/news and a new album. I will not buy tickets if they play arenas or The Roxy every day if all they bring is more of the same

Why should I enjoy another U.S., RIR and South American tours with more of the same? If they go back to the same places they need to offer something different.

Now the official instagram of The Roxy posted an old Guns N' Roses flyer with the Appetite line up picture in the 80s and wrote "Can we go back?"

Reminds me of what happened prior to the Troubadour show with the Adler gig getting cancelled and all the speculation :nervous:

Well, you'll need original master tapes to do re-mastering. Separated tracks for all instruments, vocals etc.

These youtube fellows just uses some equalizer to pump up the low end up a notch etc.

Which is the same as any audio engineer does, just with original master tapes. I think you can still rightfully call it a remaster, since the progress is exactly the same. When you use the right software, you can assign a seperated track to each instrument, vocals, etc.

Just not a remaster of the master tape, that's all the difference.

No offense, but why would you be all over an arena tour?

You think Frank's drumming will improve in a smaller setting miraculously?

You think Richard will tone down his annoying antics all of a sudden?

Will they have a smaller stage and no room for the smurfette

These have been your major complaints (and understandably so), what does an arena tour do to address any of those things?
