    I was on MyGNRForum the night of the show while in Paris, because I'd flown there for the Bercy show (Bercy was my first GNR gig). I remember thinking, "Wow, wish I could go", and then thinking, "Well, guess I could go to the club and try my luck".

    Got there 9pm, tried to get in with a couple of different groups who had friends who couldn't go for various reasons, kept getting turned away by a bouncer. Midnight and a couple of guys approached me and some other fans and said they couldn't be bothered waiting any more and if we wanted their wristbands. They only wanted 10 or 15 euros for them, which I couldn't believe and handed over the money in a heartbeat. Put the wristband on, the bouncer had changed to a cooler dude, and I got in :)

    I remember seeing Beta almost as soon as I walked in and instinctively said "Hi Beta!" and she waved back and smiled awkwardly at the stranger who had said hello to her :P

    The band turned up at 1am. Axl said "I would've got here sooner but... <rubbing his head to imply a hangover from partying the night before> that just wasn't possible" :lol:

    Whole thing was surreal. Hung outside the club with fans after the show to get Axl's autograph finally at 5:30am.

    L’ARC was the day after Bercy correct? Because I was in Paris for the Bercy show and caught a flight the next morning to go home. And I remember being upset I couldn’t go to L’ARC. Do I have the timeline right?

    Out of curiosity, I looked at the tickets for the Seattle show today. There's still plenty of seats left in every section.

    I got a ticket to see the Rolling Stones in Vancouver instead. The ticket was about $70 (or $55 USD) and I'll be way at the back, but it'll be fun, I've never seen the Stones before. :D

    They are definitely worth seeing. They put on a great show

  3. This why you need a real management team ( see Azoff, Irving) They get bands the right kind of deals that make sense for all parties involved so shit can be released. It’s not a coincidence that he was able to structure a deal to get CD out where everyone got paid. And he wanted Slash and Duff back in 2009 so everyone could get paid crazy money for a reunion tour. This is what big time management is for.

    Im actually thinking of skipping this leg, I do wanna see it & there's a show near me (Seattle) but i think it's downright rediculous that they've been at this for almost 4 years now and they haven't played a single show in my hometown (Portland, Or) Guns in general hasn't played a show here since 2006.

    That is odd. Portland is a really big market to just skip altogether.

    State Of Grace has the most potential to be a great song, it would be really interesting to hear how it's changed over the years. But in the form we've heard the songs, Perhaps feels the most 'finished' and also has a very UYI-meets-CD vibe to it.

    Love the piano breakdown after the coda so much on perhaps. And the Brian May guitar work. State of Grace is a monster song. I’m so curious to know if it’s been expanded or if it’s still 4 min. 

  6. Is anyone else really surprised that GNR can sell another entire US stadium run solo?  It made sense in 2016 because it had been so long since Axl, Slash, and Duff had performed together. But many of these markets had already been hit in the first stadium run and arena run not that long ago. Even if they announce a new album (God willing) I find it a little perplexing?

    In order from favourite to least favourite:

    1. Perhaps
    2. State Of Grace
    3. Hardschool
    4. Atlas Shrugged (RM #1)
    5. Eye On You
    6. Silkworms

    Nothing and Quick Song don't really count IMO, and the instrumentals were cool to hear once or twice but I haven't listened to many of them since they initially leaked.

    Flip Perhaps and SOG and that would be my list. Agreed about nothing and quicksong 

  8. Why do people get their hopes up that this will be when it all changes. New songs, new sets, new stage set up. Wow they are playing the slowed down version of your crazy (which actually is fucking awesome but still). Nothing is changing. Same set. 4 covers that will eat up time that they could be playing songs that people actually want to hear at a Guns N’ Roses concert- Guns N’ Roses songs. It’s so easy to start. Paradise City to end. A bloated 14 minute version of Rocket Queen and KOHD. No new single. Axl will not be in shape. Slash will be excellent as always. Same shit, Different year. The road goes on forever but the party never ends.

  9. It just is what it is at this point. Something will happen or it won’t. If you let this band make you crazy that’s on you. They are never going to function like a normal rock band. They have bad management, extremely mediocre merchandise (except for the lithographs which are excellent) and Axl has the final say on everything and it seems like he is difficult (like a lot of great artists) so the best expectation is no expectation.

    Except that is almost exactly how this reunion first reared itself, in that interview when Slash said he was talking to Axl, and that set everything going.

    Right but he didn’t announce anything. Saying stuff is recorded is the equivalent to him saying he was talking with Axl. It’s a vague insinuation that stuff is ready. It’s just a matter of getting it out there.
