      MYGNRFORUM Theme Template Update - Additional Features   09/09/2017

      Happy to announce that the upgrades have almost been completed and the new custom theme is available for all users. 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. Yeah, I agree the prices are pretty damn high and it’s a real shame that some people will be priced out of seeing their favourite artist, but we should understand that the music industry is not the same anymore. It’s true that 25 years ago the tickets prices were about 25 bucks, but we forget that the live performances are now worth more than the recorded music. Today even major label bands rarely make money from album sales. How are concert ticket prices set? It’s a hard job, a balancing act that involves making sure the touring artist and promoters / venues make money while keeping prices reasonable for fans. Basically, a band sets a figure it is guaranteed to be paid for a concert. The promoter and the band’s management work together to determine a ticket price that makes the most sense for both parties and that’s it.
