  1. Live Nation gave Tickets to resellers

    It sucks, but everyone does it. Respect to Pearl Jam for their failing fight against Ticketmaster back in the day. Though now, in an environment where music is basically free, concert tickets will keep skyrocketing in price. And this scheme is part of that. Even in baseball, the Cubs partner with brokers and unload a bunch of tickets to them to scalp. It's ridiculous. You go to Ticketmaster now, for example, and it isn't even immediately clear that you're buying aftermarket or marked up tickets unless you specifically KNOW to filter out the "Platinum" and other crap from search. They claim Platinum is "true market" prices, but if no one pays them, are they gonna LOWER face value tickets? No, that doesn't often happen.

  3. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    You're being obtuse. Adler has never shown the propensity to act as a mature adult. Rather, he acts like a petulant child who isn't allowed another chocolate-chip cookie from the jar. Would I love to see the AFD 5 on stage together? Absolutely. Is it a reasonable expectation given the way Adler behaves? No, it isn't. He couldn't even handle guest appearances, and went on a media tour with his mother whining about Guns N' Roses. We don't have to deal with Adler on the regular. They would. And they clearly don't want him around. I like the current lineup.
  4. I got mine from GNR's official site. It's annoying there's no number to call. So I am stuck waiting Universal's response. So your door is the same, huh? Did you address that with Amazon or you were more concerned with the vinyl? Amazon usually has very good customer support.
  5. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Agreed. I would love Izzy to be there. But in terms of mainstream appeal, I can guarantee some folks confuse Fortus for Izzy. He was never on the celebrity status of Axl and Slash, who were the two faces of the band.
  6. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Izzy wasn't even advertised. There was literally nothing for GNR as a business to gain from his appearances. So, yeah, I'm sure when Axl found out after the fact how much Izzy demanded for his three-song appearance, he was a little surprised. My impression of it was Axl just thought Izzy was showing up to jam, like an old friend would. Of course there'd be cash tossed his way either way. And the thing is, I'm not sure they' would have even wanted to advertise an Izzy appearance back then because Axl said that they never really knew if he'd show up or not.
  7. I received my LAL box set in the mail. It definitely looks awesome. It bugs me though that the skull and crossbones on the door was glued on slightly crooked. Slopes downward. I emailed customer support about it and am awaiting a reply. I am not about to return something and likely pay a fortune in shipping for the return. I am curious if they can send me a replacement right door with a skull and crossbones that's actually aligned properly. The main reason I wanted this was to display the cabinet. Now every time I look at it, I'm like goddamn it, it's crooked. For something that retailed originally at 1k, that should definitely not happen.
  8. This is the first time I'm hearing the Niven Izzy rumor. I don't buy it. I do think Izzy can and probably will eventually randomly show up to jam just like he used to. But I don't think the market is that different for "classic reunion" vs nitl "reunion." Most people just know Axl and Slash, and that's enough for them. No one who missed the last round of shows is suddenly gonna run to the box office (figuratively since we buy tix online now) screaming "OMG IZZY IS BACK." No disrespect to Izzy at all. I'd love to see him live someday. But again, we're the minority here. We're on a GNR fan board for god's sake.
  9. This is just not true. All they need is a little time between US legs. People want to hear the hits. We're the minority.
  10. The things I want most from the big box are the box itself and vinyl. I justified the purchase in my mind for LAL by viewing the box more as artwork for the home. And I may hang some of the vinyl in the crib too. Super Deluxe for $40 is a steal, IMO. Great deal you got.
  11. I did it and I already have buyers remorse. However, I did the AFFIRM option which gives me 0 percent for six month. Or $20 in interest if I pay it in 12 months. I can slow pay this bad boy. I figured for $399 plus GNR coupon code, plus tax, it's not that bad. I really love the cabinet and will display it. My total was $381.54 after shipping (free) and taxes ($20).
  12. Is the cabinet made of wood? I'm asking because if it is, it sort of helps me justify the price. I paid freakin' $400+ for an end table for my living room. That's just a generic end table. If this is a wooden cabinet, I am gonna custom-build a stand for it and park in my living room next to my TV so everyone can come over and think I'm crazy.
  13. Is this the cheapest it's been? I really wanna pull the trigger, but the greedy side of me wants to hold out and see if it drops to $299.
  14. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    Sorry, I still don't believe it. Nothing really adds up. And Raz is just a Trump bot now. Can't take anything he says seriously.
