There are still a few bugs to work out which we hope to have solved over the next day or two.   To use the new template, click on Themes at the bottom left side of the page and click on MYGNRFORUM (New): It is now set to default in case you did not previously changed themes. A new feature of this update are the new reactions to posts.  By click on the like button, users have a choice of five different reactions (two of our own design): Remember, if you GNR like something, make it a dolphin like! Please use the Ask Staff Anything thread with any questions or concerns. Thanks to everyone for your patience and cooperation over the last couple of weeks while we got this done.

  1. I was there and had a blast. It was my 4th NITL show. I scored a front row Center section seat when the VIP tickets came back as “regular”. It was great meeting @GoBuckybefore the show (thanks for the beer). It was my first time hearing Prostitute (agreed, with a few flubbed lines) and Yesterday’s live. I thought Axl sounded great and entire band is rolling. The set was long but I can see myself ever complaining about that. Mom still amazed at what this band has been able to do in the past 1.5 years. So happy for them and last night is a night I’ll never forget. my SCOM video
  2. I pm’d you. Can’t guarantee, but I should be there at 6:30 doors open and happy to get you one if I can.
  3. Similar to others, I saw SCOM video in early summer '88 and it blew my mind. Sometime that summer i got AFD on cassette and I played that thing out. By the end of the summer MTV had WTTJ and (I believe) Paradise City in heavy rotation. Each video showed a different side of the band, and to me there was nothing cooler than them, especially Axl.

  5. Japan Merchandise 2017

    In case this helps anyone... I live in the States and really wanted the shirt with samurai bullet on front and kanji on the back the moment I saw it. Someone from Japan seems to have posted some of these shirts on eBay for $110 USD inc. shipping. They seem legit (not knock offs) but I didn't want to pay that much if I didn't have to. - http://www.ebay.com/itm/322405022924?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT . Most of what I've seen on eBay appear to be knock offs. Since Yahoo Auction prices are pretty good, I looked into the Buyee service which for a fee will act as a proxy. I created an account and connected to PayPal. I pulled the trigger and bought a Large shirt like i wanted for $63 total, so almost $50 cheaper than eBay. It'll take longer to get to me, but I'm in no huge rush. As long as it actually arrives and my PayPal doesn't get hacked it'll be worth it I've also been tracking the Godzilla lithos. One went for $66 USD - http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/u131074728 a little while ago. There's another out there with a But It Now of $90 USD - http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/q143886391. Most of the other Japanese merch is out there too. Using Google Translate allows you to find what you're looking for.
  6. 1992 I was in high school. My friend and I had tickets to see them early in the year at the Palace of Auburn Hills near Detroit. The show was rescheduled, then ultimately cancelled. So I guess there's nothing I could've done for that show. However, they played with Metallica that summer at the Pontiac Silverdome, 20 minutes from my house. I believe my family got back the same day from a vacation, but I don't remember even particularly wanting to go. Huge mistake...my friends who went, who weren't (and aren't) even huge fans, still say how great the show was. I finally got to see them in 2006 in West Virginia. It was an awesome show, great memories, but still wish I could've seen them in the 80's or 90's.
  7. I got mine on eBay a few weeks ago. Looks like there are still plenty available for $12-15 http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR2.TRC0.A0.H0.Xguns+n+roses+rolling+stone.TRS0&_nkw=guns+n+roses+rolling+stone&_sacat=0
