  1. Not Gonna End in your Lifetime Tour
  2. They do all these shows over the Super Bowl week. Here in Minneapolis they Had a Dave Mathews show and then a ton of shows at the Armory here (Concert hall located a block or two from US Bank Stadium). Just another $$ Suck. Parking spots were going for $60 -$75 a night in some of the local parking ramps. We actually had a restaurant selling Guacamole and chips for $36!! It cuased such a upraor they said it was an "error" when called on it. Part of an article on some of the ridiculousness that goes along with having "the big game." "From $65 parking to $1,000 caviar or $800 for a night in a Shakopee hotel, the laws of supply and demand are kicking into high gear around the Twin Cities as a crush of visitors descends on the region. Locals may not be willing to pay the eye-popping prices, but businesses are counting on some fervent football fans opening their wallets and purses. One downtown restaurant, Ike’s Food and Cocktails, caused an internet uproar Monday when word leaked of a $36 guacamole and chips on its Super Bowl menu — alongside $72 beef skewers and other pricey items. A manager said the guacamole should have said $12, and the regular menu would still be available, but the restaurant is now offering a free order of guacamole to people who order something else and mention “Guac-Gate 2018.” Some restaurants are rolling out special menus with offerings tailored to the high rollers. The Oceanaire’s Super Bowl night menu includes $1,000 Iranian gold caviar, $72 for arctic char or $99 for 24 ounces of lobster tail. Penny pinchers may want to stick to the $14 side of creamed corn.
  3. Paradise City was played here on the radio back in 1987 here in Minneapolis before it was officially released in January 1989. I heard it on the radio and loved the tune, then it wasn't played for a long time. Jungle came out in October 1987 and that was the song you heard on the radio. Paradise came back on the radio after its "official" release in January 1989.
  4. They also have those people in each city. A buddy of mine works for a company that picks up bands at the airport they will fly into a smaller airport on private jet (for those that fly in to do shows) and drives them to the venue. Here in Minneapolis a lot of bands will "hub" out of Chicago and fly to shows in the midwest - Milwaukee, MSP/StPaul, St Louis, Detroit, etc.. While the gear/prod travels from venue to venue, the band fly's in, does the show and fly's out afterward. Not all bands do this, but those that do it gives them a sense of "home," while on the road. He has driven for Metallica, Bob Segar and others.
  5. Yeah probably not the band. LOL But Opie had a number of "presser's" at the beginning of the tour.
  6. They all get a spiral bound notebook that has all the detail/logistics for every show/city on the tour or leg of a tour. The book includes details on flights, transportation, hotels, load in/outs, set times,venues etc. He just pulled the main points and put them on a calendar for easy reference. Bands go to companies such as this one: http://www.touringlogistics.com/ Books also include this type of info: Tour Adamt/Art for cover Date & Venue information Personnel Tour Related Offices/Vendors Travel/Flight/Mileage Information Set Times/Day Schedule Press Schedule Venue/Promoter/Production Manager Info Currency/Embassy contact information
  7. This is the universal symbol in bands for "go around one more time." He wanted Slash to play that part again because he missed his mark/cue to start vocals.
  8. OK just went back to listen to the album version and I stand corrected. It was/is correct. It just sound s like a mis-chord on that video. It really stands out when listening through earbuds, it was the chord at 19 seconds.
  9. I meant to say that the "they" I was referring to was the guitar player either Slash or Richard. Axl started at the right spot at the beginning of the song. Its all good though.
  10. As a drummer, I thought Frank did a solid job on Locomotive. I was trying to figure out who hit the bad chord at the beginning of the song right after Duffs bass spot that 5th chord. ouch. They started the next section too early. Its all good though, its live and first time playing it live in a couple of years.
  11. I must have missed the LA Guns 3 year stadium tour.
  12. I thought the same but I think so many people were drunk that they didn't want to have an riot. But by the time GNR hit the stage a lot of people were sleeping.
  13. Target Center- Minneapolis 1992 Ticket said SHOWTIME: Around 9PM Soundgarden played for an hour and then the wait started. GNR hit the stage at 12:15AM Show ended at 3AM.
