If this tour doesnt have any new music then the only other way the tour will continue to be successful would be if afd 5 has gotten back together.....heres hoping for either new tunes or afd 5.

You do realize AFD 5 will never happen right?

He's happy right now, reading you guys' comments. I mean, he could have taken the pic anywhere else, like at home etc. But no, he did it there, as if to hint something, knowing we'd be catching at straws...

Just sayin'.

Looks like rehearsals.

Do they usually have photographic studio lights during rehearsals? That's what I was trying to point out in the photo.

They need those for close ups of the new range of toy trucks they will be selling.

Not sure if melissa will even be there still. Isnt she still suffering some health issues?

She’s been back for shows since posting about health issues, thankfully.

When NITL seemed to be over for the first time she posted on insta about seeking medical treatment and mentioned her poor diet.

That was the last post for a while. But then she started posting again when Guns headed back on the road for the fall festival tour. She framed her absence as a break from socials for personal reasons, so possibly her health wasn’t even the reason she was silent.

There’s even posts of her out on the town enjoying nightlife after playing with Guns - so hopefully that means she’s doing good :headbang:

They are not lighting stands. The stands in the background are stands for the antennas for the  in ear monitors, wireless systems the guys use on the guitars or microphones. 

They will have a number of these stands and antennas placed around the stage.

The signals come off the wireless packs attached to them (in ear transmitter) or the guitars, hit the antennas and then get direct to the receivers either in their guitar racks or to the in ear monitor sound engineers tech pit area  (guys at side of stage).

There is a very informative rig rundown for the Metallica guys, we're they explain about having to position the wireless antennas to cover the whole stage and hide them from view.

Some activity going on? Or just rehearsals? I see studio lights behind his daughter. Lol 

 

Just rehearsals, Slash confirmed that in his guitar.com interview.

I've always wondered if someone could hack into those wireless systems.  Like if you had an antenna and the right equipment to hone in on the right frequency.  It seems if a person was so inclined they could cause some havoc.😄

Start telling Axl some knock-knock jokes in his in-ear while he's performing for a change! lol

Glad they didn't say R.I.FnP. 

Really tragic tho.

I'm sort of shocked they didn't. It's bad enough they felt the need to put their logo behind him.

Bad?

First of all it's a tribute, not a merch item and secondly it shows they actually cared enough to make a custom graphic!

They have absolutely nothing to do with him. Just the picture itself is all they needed to post, but no, they need to brand it.

This interview with Axl is during the NBA finals 2000-01 Season. Lakers v Sixers. Kobe Bryant was on the Lakers at the time and they won the Championship. He name-checks Kobe.

 

Edited by soon

From GnR´s Official Youtube channel Live at the Ritz 1988!!!!!

I hope this isn't their only upload. This could potentially lead to some amazing stuff

Probably, this is not an official release at all. In my opinion this isn't any different to all the other inofficial bootlegs on spotify etc. This says published by Blue Music Corps which seems to me as a more or less professional music publishing company. If you use thirdparty websites to publish music on platforms like Spotify there is an option to put it up on YouTube which ties the music to the artists profile/channel (it says auto-generated by YouTube in the description). This is probably what happened. This company wanted to release the Ritz broadcast like many others before them and their auto-generated uploads got tied to GNR's account by YouTube automatically... 

Someone with more knowledge on this correct me if I'm wrong. Just my assumption...

You guys know there have been bootlegs linked to the bands official youtube page for the last few years, right?

I think it's just randomly generated by youtube/google, the shows that get posted are always the really common ones: Ritz 1988, Indianna 1991, Argentina 1992/93, etc.

Basically it's all the bootlegs that were broadcast in some form, that you can easily find on Amazon or wherever else. It won't lead to anything interesting, unfortunately.
