  2. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    If the dates sell-out then your assumption is incorrect. GNR have not played these cities, so it’s actually really cool the fans in these cities have an opportunity to see GNR. These guy are all approaching mid to late 50’s, and there aren’t any classic rock bands behind the GNR’s, Metallica, U2, so enjoy while you can because when they are gone there will be no replacements. Plus, it gives me an opportunity for some more lithos, which is my favorite part of this tour.
  3. New song for the October shows?

    I'm sorry, but I think they won't, maybe a new cover or maybe songs that were not played during the first and second legs of the tour. This is the third leg, am I right?
  4. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I'm no expert but it seems theyre completely oversaturating the market. 4 year tour hitting major A markets 2-3 times, B markets up to 2 times, and now C and D markets in smaller arenas. Their draw will get smaller the more they do this. If stopped in 2017, recharged and did an album (lol) in the mean time, and came back in 2020/2021 they could have probably done another stadium run. Same strategy worked for AC/DC and Metallica. Now they are touring like almost any other nostalgia act- KISS, Aerosmith, Eagles, etc. Arenas at $$$ are the max with that strategy They dont care I guess. Money is money
  5. PS4 vs Xbone

    I have an original XBox One and a GTX1080 powered PC which cost me well over £1,000 and to be honest with you I still use the XBox for most games. I just don't think there's that much of a difference. The PC is probably the most expensive web browser I've ever seen.
  6. PS4 vs Xbone

    It's all the same to Microsoft, but it understands that there's a significant (a strong majority) of people who want the convenience of a console. No need to boot up Windows, mess with device drivers, have issues with game compatibility. With a console system you're paying a smaller entry fee (generally) to get good enough performance for most. It's the same with camera technology. Most people are happy with the images they take with their phones, despite the fact that they could get better images from a dedicated camera. But in the end, convenience for most wins out. Hence I don't think Microsoft wants to push people out of consoles. Unless they can offer something more convenient, like a streaming service through their existing smart televisions, consoles will always be part of their gaming ecosystem. It's unrealistic to expect parents of young kids or older people like myself to devote the kind of time and money it takes to invest in a gaming PC when a gaming console is far more convenient. I would think there are smarter people than me at Microsoft who know this and why Microsoft was really the only who truly showed up at this year's E3 to push gaming for consoles.
  7. PS4 vs Xbone

    A friend of mine has a monster PC gaming rig (I think he spent $3k or thereabouts) and where this a difference between his machine and my Xbox One X, it's not nearly enough to justify the price tag let alone all the customizations he had to do to achieve that performance. I agree there wasn't much difference between a Xbox360/PS3 and Xbox One/PS4. The XBX1X and the PS4Pro should have been what the original consoles of this cycle should have been. I had an Xbox One S and didn't really see much in the way of graphic improvement over the 360. But when I exchanged it for the XBX1X to play RDR2 I noticed the kind of bump I was hoping to see.
  8. It's like a classic dish. You replace one ingredient and it becomes something else. Like Izzy said, once Steven was out, nothing worked or something like that. All 5 members are important but was Civil War the only Guns tune on UYI that sounded like real Guns? not to me. It was still Gn'R to me but different. The recipe had changed. Even without really big chunks of elements from Appetite that I loved like the guitar interplay between Slash and Izzy it was still sounded like Gn'R to me.
  9. Last full album you listened to?

    Cokie The Clown - You're Welcome It won't put you in a good mood, but a very honest and excellent record.
  10. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I think the reason fans appear to be 'bummed' is because they're seeing just how full of shit this band actually is given that they keep mentioning some pretend album like it's their main priority. They should just be honest with the fans and say something like, "Look, we're old, lazy, and lack creativity. Plus, one of our primary songwriters isn't even in the band anymore. So instead of bullshitting you about some album that we never interned to write, we're just going to tour our greatest hit repeatedly and take your money every chance you give us."
  11. 2 of those 4 songs have already been played live.
  12. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    In my not so humble opinion, Get Ready for standard price tickets ranging from $499-$149...but good luck buying them. I wouldn't be surprised to see most available tickets to be either VIP packages or Ticketmaster Platinum tickets in the range of $800-$900-$1200 each.
  13. New song for the October shows?

    could you imagine they played oh my god or silkworms or checkmate Jackie chan for the first time
  14. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Exactly. I do not understand how people are bummed they're touring. It's the greatest thing that's ever happened as far as I am concerned.
  15. New song for the October shows?

    yeah it would be good if there was footage of axl and nu gnr rehearsing a few days before the house of blues show in 2001 or audio of it
  16. New song for the October shows?

    yeah my twitter was hacked I wasn't drunk
  17. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I'm old and I feel the same way I would love new music, but I could never complain because they're doing shows.
  18. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Yup that one. Man, I would love to go to an arena tour but am already taking 3 trips this fall/winter. If the SLC one was on a Saturday, I SO would have tried to swing that. Its on a Tuesday!
  19. Yes I don't see how anybody can think that way. For me GNR are what we call the combination of Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven. Now maybe you can substitute Steven for Matt or Frank. But anything short of this combination is not GNR. In other words, there is no thing called GNR that exists independently of it five member. GNR are the point at which those five members intersect and interact. To conceive of it any other way seems to be a way of using your illusion.
  20. The T.V. Show Thread

    It aired last night. Gilby was the only one from Guns in the episode. No one from MC was on but they showed tons of clips of them.
  21. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Yeah, according to that post above I would be WAY off with what I expected. I'm still not going to change my Vegas plans around to make the show happen but that's FAR more reasonable on price then I was expecting!
  22. Today
  23. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    The breaking the band one? So, anyone going to the GnR shows this fall? I'm considering going to the Vegas ones.
  24. General Chat / Random Musings

    Just because the lens cracked in horror.
