  1. man can do you assumptions.. wow. I have a life with a great job, a family , hobbies and one of them is music. why its cool to meet a band? cause you get to talk to them , can ask them things you want to know, have a small insight of how rock n roll world is. classic die hard fan I would say. If YOU are not interested in that - fine - others are. end of discussion. why the fuck did I think this forum could be a place where one can express opinions. If you "critize" GNR then everything else you write must be bullshit..
  2. you have picked only one of my posts of today. I assumed you read the whole thread. sorry. Regarding Skid Row I clearly made the point that they always meet their fans after the show. If you want to participate in the soundcheck experience you can buy the meet & greet at 90 usd. I did that because I find it great to see a soundcheck , take as many fotos as I want and being sure to meet the band twice ..because as I said they talk to their fans after the shows (=for free) and they don t make fake smiles for 50 usd but remember who you are and treat people very well. GNR does nothing. no communication whether paid or not paid. The only thing I get from Gnr are marketing emails everytime they have a new tour and want me to buy tickets or overpriced stuff. marketing... the only thing besides the show. And on the other side I saw how cool Skid Row treated their fans, respond on instagram, talk to fans before/after the show. charge ticket prices where I am surprised they don t ask more. If you hear their interviews they say they don t take their fans for granted. people could do anything in their leisure time but when they decide to go and see Skid Row live , they as a band want to be sure that people get a great show and interact with the fans afterwards. they don t act like divas or stars. just like the human beings they are.
  3. holy crap. is it so difficult to read? I didn t complain about the fact that you don t meet a GNR member. I complained about the fact they sell useless experiences and overpriced stuff!
  4. no idea who does that. A Skid Row meet & greet includes soundcheck and you stay like 30-45 min with the band.
  5. don t mind any answers to my post. their VIP experience isn t dishonest it s worthless and money driven. I know that you are not promised to meet a band member but seeing the stage, a lanyard, foto book and catering is not worth 700-1000 eur. I spend quite some time and concerts with my other favourite band - Skid Row - in 2018. a meet&greet costs 90 usd. and band members also take their time to talk with fans after every show. it s about the music not about the money. and NITL is only about the money - that s the taste it leaves...
  6. I have no idea why you bring up those points. I didnt say GNR shall behave as the Kardashians. I just don t like their behaviour of the NITL tour. FOR ME ITS NOT ROCK N ROLL - to charge tickets "VIP Experience" for 700 EUR where you don t even meet one band member! whats the point - apart GREED - in selling such tickets? - to sell some super expensive leather jackets or other expensive boxes - GREED again - to be predicable (and that s what the NITL tour was) I loved the way that in their early days they didn t follow rules, but what they do since NITL is only money driven. No rock n roll attitude at all in my eyes. Just large corporates behaviour. This said I will however go to the upcoming european shows because I love their music. But I will never understand people who buy the super overpriced completely worthless VIP tickets GNR sell these days. At least if you paid 900 EUR to Ozzy you could meet Ozzy. GNR only takes money; in exchange you get what?: to see the stage?, wow; a lanyard, wow again, foto books, come on it s not worth more than 50 USD to stamp that)
  7. you are right and you can replace Metallica with dozens of other bands that do the same. Skid Row does changes to the setlist every tour, they do 100+ shows every year since 2013 and always have time to hang out with the fans. they released 2 eps and a full length album is coming. they treat their fans like gold and don t milk them. GNR just doesn t do anything beside playing shows together...
  8. Hm a song that represents GNR.. with reference to the 80/90 s: Dont damn me or Back of Bitch and Get in the ring. Those songs represent their "fuck you all" attitude and great rock songs. My favourite of these: Don t damn me. which song represents GNR nowadays: no idea... they have become "toothless" . no more anger. always punctual.. double talkin jive maybe. I think 90 s Axl would laugh at 2019 Axl regarding several things (selling vip tickets for tremendous prices without even meeting a member of the band instead of writing new music, having become a predictable act and so on) . haha.. I sound quite frustrated now
  9. When you had a sectio (gave birth to a child) , feel terrible until you receive a ticket alarm for GNR and start searching your fucking credit card even when your stomach is hurting like f?ck
