Rumored "Golden Ticket" In One Of The Locked N' Loaded Sets

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this already has a thread, or has been covered.

A tweet sent by GN'R manager Fernando Lebeis around the time of the Appetite remaster announcement seems to indicate that one of the Locked N' Loaded box sets may have a "golden ticket", or as he phrased it, a "golden opportunity". Something right out of Willy Wonka. There's a woman/superfan who I've chatted with on both Facebook and You Tube who says it is absolutely true, though aside from Fernando's somewhat unspecific tweet, there's been no confirmation from the band, or Universal music, that I know of.

I went through my Locked N' Loaded set pretty thoroughly (found the hidden cassette), but I didn't find any golden ticket. Obviously, the odds would be 1 in 10,000 that it was in my box, if it actually exists at all. But I didn't want to take the shrink wrap off any of my vinyls, nor open up the case with the book, as I have a Super Deluxe Edition that I did open, and it's the same thing. So, I don't know if it could possibly be something stashed in one of the vinyls that would require opening, or within the envelope packaged with the book...if not in my Locked N' Loaded box, then someone else's?

Has anyone heard about this "golden ticket", whether it really exists, and if it's already been discovered?

"Hi.

This is an unheard recording composed by Mothergoose with Shaq and Pitman spitting some Gangsta Rap.

Thanks for the benjamins.

Love Uncle Ax and Shaq."

In all seriousness, I bet it'll be a flight on the new airplane with Dizzy, 4tus, Frank and Melissa.

This was supposed to happen but a UMG guy at an AFD release party in the Netherlands told a fan that ultimately they didn't do it, because of logistics.

I always thought that it would be a lifetime pass to GNR concerts.... 

Don't kid yourself. It's a ticket pass for a single concert of your choice. On the seats highest and furthest from the stage :P

The winner get's a glass jar containing one of Axl's farts. Comes with a USB stick with a recording of the fart in high res at 24/192.

The acompanying video clip is 480p and presented in 4:3 aspect ratio. The audio is 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. This is a Betamax only release.

You all need to stop dreaming. 

The golden ticket is a once in a lifetime chance to have a three hour meeting with the mastermind behind the guns n’ roses success: Fernando Lebeis.

Win some GNAIR merchandising.

Did anything come of that GNAIR thing by the way, or was it literally just a merchandising line?

the idea never got off the ground
