  1. I think I have a good perspective as I saw NILT 6 times, including night one in Vegas and the amazing Apollo show in NYC. Here is my takeaway from the show. I’m not going to even mention the setlist because I already know that is a hot topic. And yes, I now don’t care or at least just am not hoping for new music. Whenever it happens it happens, but I am now over it too. The tour merch did not have the NITL badge. It said Tour 2020. Snoop Dogg was the most exciting opener I have seen, even more then then Lenny Kravits at Met Life Stadium. I am not a musician, but the band seemed amazing last night. Like mid tour form. Frank I really like now, I think he fits right in. The only 2 songs I didn’t like his style were KOHD and YCBM. An older guy next to me said this was his 36th GNR show, and it was “ the tightest the band has ever been “. Maybe he was drunk or just filled with the excitement of Super Bowl Weekend in Miami. But those were his words. They were by far the best I have seen as a band. Axl at the beginning of the show sounded the best I have ever heard him live. Hands down. Maybe it was the sound system ?? His voice was really good and in lower register the first half of the show. From the middle on, started to get a little in the higher register, but still was totally fine to me. The guy is in his 50’s and overall I think he killed it. Slash is why I am a superfan of the band. He was just slash. I never personally saw him not have a great night in my 6, now 7 shows. He was great as usual. Hi light for me was his Solo on Chi Dem. I am not even a fan of the song. Richard is a fantastic guitar player, I think he is great, I think he knows his role in the band and does it well. Is he the Izzy songwriting low key heart of the band ? No. But he’s the next best thing, and definitely a better guitar player. Intro to Better with Slash, Duff and Richard in a tight little circle was bad ass, would love to find a video of it. It looked and sounded great. I don't like to nit pick, but Slither and the Kobe tribute were the low points. The energy was good, I was in section 106, pretty close on Slash side, and I didn’t see 1 person not having the time of their life the entire show. I had no premonition about writing such a puff piece review of the show, but I think they killed it. Amazing I went to this show thinking this is the swan song for me with them, and it made me like them even more. Sucks they won’t give us music, and they probably have albums and albums of material they could release. Whatever, it is what it is.
  2. I am almost at your point. I am going to the show in 12 hours, I have really good seats. If they play the same NITL set list I have seen 5 times already, I will still enjoy the show, but than I officially will graduate to your point of view. I won't get mad anymore, I just won't give a shit anymore either. Weirdly I enjoy seeing them so much live, that similar set lists don't bother me much. would I love a new song, or another deep cut put in ? Sure, but I also realize 97% of the audience is seeing them for the first time this tour and the band wants to give them the best possible show. They are not going to cater to the 1% ( us ) who care about if they add 1 more song to the set. However, if there is no announcement, or nothing amazing happening tonight, I am finished hoping anymore.
  3. Interesting point. I think GNR is a little more epic then Metallica, and there are a couple of Metallica Albums that didnt meet standards. IMO
  4. Found the week guy at front door. He worked for Siruis / XM and was in charge of handing out the tickets to the people who were on guest list. Offered him $200. He met me at back door and walked me in 1 minute after showtime. I stood in front of the small booth area Eddie Trunk had by side of stage for entire show right in front of Slash. 5 feet from stage. I seen NILT a bunch of times, but seeing them in a small theater was actually an unbelievable experience. Much different then standing with 65,000 in a football stadium.
  5. I thought this would be an interesting thread since all I read is how negative everyone feels about the lack of new music. Let just say the AFD 5 never broke up. Lets say they released 5, 6 or 7 more albums worth of content. What if they always did interviews ? What if Axl never started a riot and was as nice and punctual as a Dave Grohl? What do you think their status as a band is now ? If you really start to think about it, they might have fallen into a slightly above average Hard Rock band that has about 4 albums too much. I doubt they would have the legendary status they have now. The mystique they have would be gone. This argument is entirely speculative, and yes, at this point, I am really praying for a new album, but, I am glad they don't have so much material out there. I just don't think they could have pulled off one of the highest grossing tours in history like they just did. Lets even look at this forum. Its a GNR forum. That means people came here, signed up to talk about and read about GNR. And yet 90 % ish of all posts or threads are so negative, criticizing them, their management, their repetitive set lists, lack of music and so on. Is there another band in any genre that this is the norm on a forum that is dedicated to them ? ( if there is , I wouldn't know as this is the only forum I read or belong too ) Even someone like me. I listen to every kind of genre of music. Hard Rock being the least though of the others. And I am fascinated with these guys. So much so I spent a small fortune to be at the first show in Vegas. If I wasn't out of the country the week before, I would have finagled a way into the Troubadour show. I had no tickets and finagled my way into the Apollo show in NYC. So I am happy to say, I love the history of these maniacs. The backstories. The Chi-Dem saga that should probably get a Netflix series just on that. The breakups, that semi reunion. Its like a train wreck , but the train keeps going.
  6. If one of the moderators will hold our money in escrow, I am game.

  8. I am willing to bet anyone any amount of money a new album DROPS in 2020. Just like the rumors of slash and duff built up for 6 months and it came to fruition. Slash, Duff, Axl, and TB have all alluded to it. Why would they not ? Stop comparing current Axl to the guy 15-20 years ago. The guy who started riots and came to stage 2 hours late , and delayed an album by 10 years is long gone. Obviously people get older and realize they're mistakes. At some point it becomes about money instead of just keeping it Real. The current GNR universe employ lots of people and all have gotten fat in the last 3 years. Do you really think this machine is gonna stop anytime soon ? It's mostly about the money. They know an album dropping will continue the touring cycle for 5 more years with breaks in between. They all have said at some point an album is coming. How would Slash and Duff explain it next year if there was no album ? They actually care about saying things and it happening. We know Axl doesn't, but those 2 guys don't just throw things like that out there. Mark this time and date, An album is dropping in 2020, not sure it will be great music, but it will top the charts that first week. If you think anything else, you have zero intuition and keep referencing ChiDem period Axl. All of the pressure has built to this point, everyone in their world knows it. Bet me ..
  9. Actually, it is being promoted as part of official super bowl festivities. I get emails from the NFL regarding Super Bowl tickets because I am a season ticket holder, and the GNR concert is listed in the NFL emails along with the DJ Khaled concert. It wont be aired, and its obviously not as big as performing at the halftime show, but it is officially part of the weekend. The super Bowl is not just a game on Sunday , its an entire week of events and parties, and fan experiences. I will be at the concert and am also hoping something interesting like a new song or announcement. A 15 second ad during the super bowl would be huge.
  10. Who else thinks the band is sitting in a studio,and in between recording are reading all these replies and laughing their asses off ?
  11. What would be your ideal GNR tour?

    I paid $150 for floor seats, section A row 15. I got them the day tickets were released. And I also got 1 ticket for Guns at super bowl weekend for $450section 106
  12. I got to see MJ last 2 concerts at MSG he did with his brothers and a lot of guest stars including slash. Next morning was September 11th, 2001 ..
  13. I saw 1400 for decent seats , but I was navigating so quick I didn't pay too much attention and was afraid It would sell out fast. I wanted to get 2 tickets for 400 :/
