  1. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I agree but I do have an issue with people acting like those beneath them economically are simply a product of "how hard they work." Especially when they are condescending
  2. I wasnt up close for that Vegas show, but that was definitely one of the most fun weekends of my life. Wish we could relive it!
  3. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    This argument doesn't apply as much to me but I empathize with the millions of people it does. Fuck off
  4. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    No, people usually pay the minimal amount legally possible to keep costs down and profit up which is why so many people can't pay their shit
  5. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Probably I hope we are all super worked up about this IRL. Can't wait to yell at my girlfriend when she gets home and throw my cat out the window.
  6. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Of course it isn't. None of us are going to be stewing to our loved ones tonight about GNR's prices, but since this is an online forum we might as well bitch and discuss here
  7. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    People who complain about people complaining are the fucking worst. Its literally a GNR message board, what do you fucking want?
  8. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Only human garbage would think people are always "deemed what they are worth"
  9. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Fuck off, you piece of shit. I make enough to do things I want, but that doesn't mean I should bend the fuck over and accept the cost of whatever. No shit, luxuries cost extra money, but the rate of which things like concert tickets are increasing is batshit insane. Just 5 years ago I could see almost any arena band for $40-$50 a nosebleed and about $100-$150 lower bowl. Are you are telling me its okay for washed up millionaires like Mick Jagger and Axl Rose to be charging tickets for fucking $200-$700+ face value?

    Also, high price points mean casuals and friends aren't as likely to go with you. I can double the fucking price of a ticket if I want to go with someone because I'll either have to buy them a ticket or go alone. If I wanted to see GNR with someone now we would pay about $400 after fees and taxes to sit in the back row before parking, drinks, food, gas, and whatever the fuck else. Who the fuck would want to do that for a band they don't care a lot about? I am so glad I have seen almost everyone I want to because in the past 4 years, because arena concerts have become almost completely inaccessible unless you play a stupid game with looking at changing ticket prices every day. If you want to see an A lister in an arena, now, almost forget about it. I had to do it last time I saw GNR in 2017. I ended up getting lucky the day of the show, but what a fucking headache. Tickets are hidden with changing costs, bullshit platinum packages, fake and inflated resale, etc. Fuck it. That leg of the tour was $90 nosebleeds before fees if I recall, yet there are rows of empty seats at every show you go to now because scalpers lapped up hundreds of tickets and upped the prices even more. A "sold out" show can have hundreds of empty seats. Sure, I can splurge if its something I really want to see, but its just not worth it to see these acts multiple times anymore. Its become just as bad as seeing a Broadway show in a much smaller theater.

    The people saying, "iM a CoNSuMeR ItS a FrEeMaRKeT yOU HaVe A ChOiCE!" can fuck right off. When EVERYTHING in the fucking world is skyrocketing and pay remains shit, that means almost nothing will be affordable for the average consumer. So, suck a fat dick if you think $100+ face value nosebleeds are acceptable.
  12. The Gear Thread

    Also, I like putting the LA Studio Compressor at the end of my chain and bringing down the peak reduction to taste. Really opens up the amp models. Shoot me your email if you want some IRs
  13. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    These are more than the April 2016 shows. Fucked up
  14. Night train presale

    Unless you really like the seats, don't get them in the night train presale. Seats are usually trash in this
  15. Dave Mustaine Diagnosed with Throat Cancer

    Get well Dave
  16. The Gear Thread

    Awesome I'll try that IR tomorrow. I use an Ownhammer Marshall checkerboard with greenbacks usually. Let me know if you want to try some. I never played a 2204 but I agree the amp model is bassy. I also think its a little quiet. I can crank the channel and master and it can still be quiet. Sounds good at home though. The other JCM800 with the other mid controls sounds similar too. My favorite amp models change but I consistently use the Super Tremolo, 1959SLP, SLO100, Archon, and then the JC120 for cleans.
  17. Thought it'd be nice to have one spot for all the lithographs
  18. 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
  19. I saw GNR up close twice in 2016 and they were two of the most fun evenings Ive ever had.
  20. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    He had something to prove those years. 06 was after the 2002 debacle and there was hype for CD, 09 and 10 were the first years after its release, and 16 was the reunion and ACDC He has nothing to prove and is coasting right now. He will most likely be awful the first show, and maybe slightly improve by our standard as the run goes on while still sounding bad
  21. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    The more I think about it the more likely I am to sit it out. The 2017 show I saw was good but Axl was definitely weaker than he was in 2016. He has sounded worse since. That combined with It still 100% still being NITL make it an easy pass for me.
  22. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Definitely not. They're even using the same tour moniker
  23. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    See? No will power. It is ridicolous NITL marches on
