  1. Tour Logistics from Duff

    Not sure the 'press schedule' troubles the GNR tour too much!
  2. NITL is over, finito?

    Yeah - I bought a ticket actually based on the fact they weren't doing much/any old stuff. Them doing loads of GNR songs has been the reason I haven't bothered going in the past. The crowd were good too - they wanted to hear the new stuff. I was really impressed actually - Slash seemed really engaged and into it. I'd obviously take new GNR material over new SMKC stuff in a heartbeat though- that goes without saying I suppose.
  3. Coma and Jungle Demos

    Thanks. That demo remains elusive, right?
  4. Coma and Jungle Demos

    Is this the Coma demo with Adler drumming?
  5. Coma and Jungle Demos

    I always take great amusement from trying to explain some of the machinations around things like this to people I know. They are always incredulous and think it's the most childish and pathetic thing they've ever heard! Then you ALWAYS get the question "well, why don't the band just release this stuff themselves?" to which there is absolutely no answer.
  6. We'll see.....but if any of that happens in March I'll show my arse in my living room window at rush-hour!
  7. Yeah, I agree. Personally, I don't want to do anyone down, and I know how hard it is to make money out of anything creative. What seems a shame to me is that the artists who did this stuff can't take their art beyond the very limited runs it received (the shirts/lithos at the gigs, where supply is less than demand). I don't know what financial arrangements went on though, and maybe the artists are very happy with the financial compensation they got from producing work simply for a very limited run. And I suppose a lot of the appeal of the lithos is wrapped up in their 'one night only' production. I've said many times too that I would love some sort of coffee-table type book of all the art from the entire tour. That would be a fantastic thing to produce.
  8. I'll say now, I bought a bootleg litho shirt. I really wanted one from the gig I went to, but couldn't get it, despite being one of the first in. Seriously annoyed me as I loved the design. The bootleg I got is good quality, at a decent price. I sort of feel bad for not supporting the artist (I'm a firm believer in paying for creative arts) but there was literally no other way to obtain it.....if there had been, I'd gladly have taken it. Isn't this similar to a lot of people's attitudes to the leaks? Is it ok to get a bootleg if the item is totally unavailable? Anyone got any thoughts?
  9. Well fair enough.....but these sort of claims are thrown around so readily I've no idea why anyone would take them too seriously anymore. Just think about how many there have been in the last 2 or 3 years.....absolutely none of them turned out to be true. Sooner or later I guess that one will be true (law of averages!) but original band members coming back, new material and UYI in full? I think not. It's pretty easy to say anything and say "the rumour is....." but there's never any evidence of any of this stuff.
  10. That exact same rumour was doing the rounds at the beginning of 2019. I'd give it zero attention.
  11. NITL is over, finito?

    It's cutting it a bit fine now for Christmas releases. Stores have their stock in, and release schedules are set. If it was happening, we'd know by now I think.
  12. Yeah, it's insane isn't it? I just don't understand how on earth people have that level of disposable income, as well as spare time. Personally, I struggle to afford one show. I could never have afforded a Vegas ticket, even if I lived there. I also think though that you can take so much more enjoyment from limiting yourself - I'd probably rather be blown away by a one-off experience I never did again than keep repeating that experience. I don't know - good luck to people if they have excessive amounts of free time and disposable income and want to do it. I just think it's kind of sad that the 'super fan' has changed from the scruffy kid who wants to have his mind blown to those who have the deep enough pockets to be at the front and buy their 'VIP experiences'. Times have changed I know, but all the things that drew me to rock music as a kid seem to be pretty unimportant to a lot of bands these days.
  13. NITL is over, finito?

    We've been here before with the LA shows, the Iceland show, Hawaii, etc. The only thing that makes me wonder (slightly) if it might actually be the end of the NITL tour is the total lack of mention of anything about the March shows on the official site, which could suggest a re-branding is about to happen. Maybe.
  14. Kind of sad that these days "super-fans" are defined by how much money they have rather than anything else.
  15. What show is that drunk Slash clip from?
  16. Paris 92 was broadcast on ITV or Channel 4 in the UK. (Fairly sure it was Channel 4). It had commercials inserted (most notably after November Rain, before the 'you're not the only one' section, much to my annoyance!) I taped it off TV, then put a cassette recorder up the speaker to make a cassette copy of the audio (which even featured my parents walking into the room after being and asking what on earth I was doing and telling me turn it off in the background!). Played it to death, to the point that I know everything that was said between songs!
  17. If you go by the official site, you wouldn;t even know they had dates coming in March! No mention whatsoever of them happening! https://www.gunsnroses.com/news https://www.gunsnroses.com/tour I can't stand the 'highest grossing tour' thing - a) who gives a fuck and b) if you want to tour for years on end and call it the same tour, then of course it'll go up the ranking! "It's the same tour. We've only had four six month breaks folks"....... I think as long as Slash stays they'll remain an Arena band yeah.
  18. So was the first show of this leg of the tour. Or the last show of the previous leg of the tour. Or the first show of the previous leg of the tour. Or the Apollo show. Etc etc. It's not going to happen, and hoping for it only leads to disappointment at this stage sadly.
  19. Those things sound like my idea of hell at a concert. Apart from the drinking.
  20. Copyright Strikes....

    You've GOT to be kidding right?!
  21. Copyright Strikes....

    I think most people are pretty shocked that people making and posting racist memes weren't even banned from on online forum. People are genuinely (and rightly) confused as to why this is the case.
  22. Copyright Strikes....

    That's my concern too to be honest. They seem to be ramping things up, and becoming increasingly unhealthy. They're clearly lonely people lashing out at others, but where that ends when people get more and more desperate I'm not sure.....
  23. Copyright Strikes....

    I'm of the view that he's potentially very dangerous to be honest. I've seen his attempts to turn people against forum users by sending out PMs full of lies, designed to stoke hatred towards others. They'e usually aimed at some of the more shy and vulnerable female forum users.
