  1. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    In a very bizarre way Ticketmaster and their affiliates still sell tickets for concerts in June / July in countries that officially prohibited concerts until the end of August. I wonder if that is even legal....It would not surprise me if we did not hear anything at all from the Guns camp; maybe we`ll hear from some promoters some days before the concert is supposed to take place that the shows will be indefinetely postponed....
  2. OFFICIAL UPDATE FROM GUNS on Facebook, MAY 11th 2020 - EU SUMMER TOUR WILL NOT BE HAPPENING GN’R Fam: Sadly, the upcoming European tour will not be happening. Things are changing daily and we want to keep our fans, crew members and band safe. We are working hard with our promoters, venues and cities/countries on next steps and will make further announcements as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience, we will get through this together and look forward to seeing you all very soon… https://de-de.facebook.com/gunsnroses/ Possibly it would be a good idea to have an official thread on the status of the 2020 tour and country restrictions. I don`t think there will be a Euro tour this year, but the silence from GnR camp (as well as promotors) is deafening. So maybe a thread with the official regulations would make sense for us to keep up (and keep our hopes down for a 2020 tour). I just added countries where I had up to date info available; please feel free to add info.

  3. The Bon Jovi Distaster

    You guys can`t compare Axl`s and Jon`s performances. Jon`s voice is just straight dead; he is stuck with 3-4 lower notes and no power in his voice at all. He can`t sing anymore- period. Axl has had his ups and downs but even on a bad performance he had voice, range and power left.
  4. The Bon Jovi Distaster

    LOL that is actually still one of the better songs His voice is dead; I don`t even know how he is not ashamed of performing in this state.
  5. AC/DC works like a clockwork, 100% sure they will drop an album in autumn and then tour. Hope the solution for Brian with the special in ears works out.
  6. The Bon Jovi Distaster

    I saw Bon Jovi last night, as tickets were rather cheap. Stadium was full and people did have a good time as they were singing louder than the singer. But boy oh boy is Jon Bon Jovi`s voice dead. Completely out of sync, incomprehensible at times, severe problems of hitting any notes at all and most of all he was only singing roughly about half the lines. It looked most of the times as he was really suffering by singing. As soon as he had to raise his voice a little, the mix just tuned him off completely and the band members had to sing for him. The band itself was great, Tico was on fire, David saved the biggest embarassement for Jon by propably singing as much as Jon and Phil X is a great guitar player. However the whole show rather had the character of a karaoke show for the audience and David. At times I had the feeling Jon was so off, that the band actually slowed down the songs for him. I almost felt sorry for him (almost, but the combination of worse than KISS advertising for Jon Bon Jovi crafted denim wear, the Jon Bon Jovi Cruise (3 nights 2500 USD per person) and the official BonGiovi tomato sauce and his self celebration by wearing a jacket that said LEGEND at the end of his singing misery kind of prevented me from feeling too sorry) . Axl Rose on his worst night (such as Abu Dhabi last year) was still about 10 times as good. Even in bad shows he never had to rely on the singing capabilities of his band, he always had "some voice" left. So if a decent band like Bon Jovi without the original lead guitar player can sell out stadiums with a charismatic singer who can`t sing anymore, I have absolutely no doubt that Guns will be able to tour big time for the next 10 years at least.
