  1. Telling those people what Axl wants, so Axl doesn't have to talk to them personally. Otherwise I think he's just a gloryfied assistant, doing whatever Axl tells him to do/doesn't want to do himself, because he's a star, with occasional own ideas, which he has to run by Axl to get it done. And bitch about the ungrateful fan base (the one, which affords him to live a life, 90 % of us never get to live).
  2. Or just W.A.R. That would have been fitting, wouldn't have meant it's a solo album per se, as he still seems to consider it a group effort and would haven taken the pressure off him and maybe more people would have given it a chance.
  3. Metallica and Def Leppard played 3. Extreme played 2, but their first song was a long medley.
  4. It's sacrilege to cut GNR because of fucking Spinal Tap. I always thought they only did 2 songs because both of them were rather long.
  5. "Careless whisper" is where it's at. Also "Freedom". Yeah. He had some great Songs.
  6. Nope. It was all in one go. First the band individual performances, then the Queen performance with guest singers stepping in. Only U2 was a transmission, as they were on tour in the US. It was amazing. Even the pay TV channel broadcast that show live and for free. It was an event. Even though I though the GNR song choice boring and had hoped for more songs.
  7. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Yeah. But unfortunately all of them totally lack the "caring about the fans". They see us as their bank accounts.
  8. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Yay. I would vote for you as the new Manager.
  9. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Well. Do you have understanding and compassion for the other side?? Not that you should feel sorry for a faceless corporation which is only there to make money, but still. There are 2 sides to this refunding and rescheduling business.
  10. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    That brings us back to what I said some weeks ago. Still stand by that. I've invested about 3000 in concert tickets for shows that are not happening on the originally scheduled dates. I'm not sweating it. And really, it's fair game for them to wait at least until the original concert date, before they return your money.
  11. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    And? Maybe some of these promoters (and it's not only Live Nation, but also local ones) are fighting for their lives and try to avoid having to pay back everything at once, not knowing when they can make money again. And really, how can you safely reschedule a show when some predict that there won't be any concerts until the end of 2021 or a working vaccine is found? This is a unprecedended situation and while the customer shouldn't be left holding the bag, there is also the other side of promoters already having incurred costs, with nothing to show for it and ending up having to give the money back. On the customer side, the money would be gone either way. It's not gonna kill us, having to wait for a bit to have a chance to get our money back. I'm assuming, most would want to go the rescheduled shows anyway (even if they ask for the money back now and thus complicate the situation).
  12. NITL live videos on youtube

    Yeah. It is not. Often times the manager is regarded as an unofficial member. Especially in a case like GNR, where he is family.
  13. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    Yeah. And stopped by a viral epidemic. Don't get more epic than that. But yeah. I worry too. Also Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Sammy Hagar, Diana Ross, Queen, Mother's Finest, Lionel Richie, Ozzy Osbourne. All acts I wanted to see this year. Who knows what will happen in 2 years.
  14. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    But why? You're not going to the rescheduled show? The money would be gone either way. Now you just have to wait a bit to see when you will get it back. Not a problem really, but a problem for (some of) these companies if they have to refund everyone at the same time.
  15. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Geez. We know you're a bit slow and like to twist and turn things, but if you quote, quote the whole thing. He said that they are "a pretty cool company to interact with", most likely meaning that they actually respond and try to help when you have a problem. That they are ticket scalpers and profit off people buying tickets to sell them, is a different story.
  16. Aerosmith, System of a down, Diana Ross, Faith no More have no proper postponement/rescheduled messages either. Rammstein released their statement, not saying much more than GNR at the end of last week. In Austria there is a scheme to issue coupons for cancelled shows valid until the end of '22. Only then you get the money back, should you choose to not buy a new ticket. In Switzerland they say that all postponed shows tickets (even though no new dates have been set) stay valid and that you can't return your tickets. It's not only Guns N' Roses that is fucked up. The whole industry is.
  17. COVID-19 Outbreak

    It's still weird and ridiculous… but you just have to go with the flow of being weird and ridiculous.
  18. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Right. When the truth hurts, just delete it and shut the people up and pat yourself on the back afterwards. And how convenient you happen to like the other person's post. At least the dimwitted people, the ones lacking reading comprehension and thrive on getting off being butthurt and offended are protected. And threats?? What threats are you talking about?
  19. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Yeah. Got you deeply offended there. You still hurt. That's why you little mind try to hit back now and pull everything apart what I said. And yes. You clearly are dumb, as evidenced by your pathetic butthurt responses and the fact that I was talking about the financial side (people who want money back, because they are otherwise broke and spent money they would be missing, should they lose a job), to which simpletons like you got deeply offended instead of trying to get what I was saying. And now you try to compare apples and oranges in a desperate attempt to prove me wrong. You're clearly failing though. But don't you worry. I'll be doing fine regardless of whether I get the money back or not (which really isn't my issue here at all, but apparently you infact are too stupid to see what I'm talking about). And yes. It is a big relief that I don't have to rely on Ticketmaster and Live Nation to put food on my table in the next months. The only fool I see here at the moment, is you.
  20. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Did I blame GNR anywhere for this?
  21. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Who asked for your opinion?? Fact is, it stinks that they are trying to rush everyone into making a decision, when, most likely, every show this year gets postponed. Many people will face the problem of clashing appointments.
  22. COVID-19 Outbreak

    The people have spoken, it seems. Protests around the country. Either heroes or total dum dums.
  23. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    It sounds tempting, apart from the fact that I would have to go through the same hassle to get good seats again. But really I don't trust them enough to let them keep my money for 1,5 years, if the worst case scenario should come to pass. And what happens if this company or the promoter goes belly up, because they can't do concerts for a year.
  24. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    At least now we know for sure, it is Fernando. As if we needed confirmation. But really, fuck that 30 days to say whether you want to return tickets. I got 25 shows booked this year, some I only attend because they are in proximity to another and can be done in one trip. How the hell am I supposed to know which ones I keep when all of them get rescheduled? Fuck them.
