Ironically, this might be the most interesting time in GNR history.

According to his speach, not even Axl knows what the future holds in cards.

Some options -

A) nothing

B) reunion with Izzy and Sorum/Adler

C) 2 year break and 30 years UYI tour

D) new album

E) some silly tour with eversame setlist down the line

 

IMO, this line up has been milked dry. The money machine needs a new ace.One comment is significant 'this needs to end in order to move on to the next step'.  Original 5 or Izzy/Sorum tour? Certainly less work and another 2 years of safe money grab.  My wish? Sure,  Axl wish? Possibly.

 

I think there are only two real options for them without going back to playing theaters 

1. AFD5 but even that would be mainly interesting for hardcore fans as the casual fan doesn't care for anyone but Slash and axl 

2. A new album and a tour to promote it with either the current lineup or probably AFD5 which would obviously be our all favorite option but very unlikely to happen 

 

They can't just keep on touring without changing anything, they already went from stadiums to arenas in the US and played to half-empty venues in Europe, they need something to build up the excitement again

Sorry if someone post it here already

But this is really kickass nightrain!

Axl sounds great here, a little bit tired and rough at some notes but you can hear he tries really hard to give his best. If some cracks and timing issues weren't there this would be comparable to 2016 Nightrains

Nice! After the last 2 years and 8 months of shows that's pretty cool. I know some of the people who religiously watch the streams etc say that they've been on auto-pilot for ages but if that's auto-pilot it's 100% better than poor Johnny Bongiovi is doing right now, hanging for dear life off his mic stand like a deer in headlights and straining every muscle in his face and neck to try and barely squeak out the songs on his last record which were recorded with zero high notes or challenging parts as it is.

He sounds a little tired and rough, cracks and timing issues but it still kicks ass?

Nightrain has been or at least used to be one of their most consistent songs this tour but that one didn't sound that great.. Always better in person though. I am actually not a huge fan of that forced deep rasp voice he uses during the verses. Just doesn't sound good. I think he uses the same voice at the end of CD right? I guess he is trying to do what he can with what he's got.

I don't think timing issues were his fault. Sounding tired is understandable since it's after touring for nearly 3 years.

Well,it's interesting because i think this deep raspy voice isn't actually forced. It seems to be easy for him. Tbh I think it sounds awesome. 

And yeah this is still kick-ass Nightrain because this is not opera but ending of 3 hours long show, and ending of long tour. 

In topic of ChD, this sounds great too

We picked up a ton of actual merch. The shirt my brother liked best was a boot leg slash shirt. We didnt see one until we were inside the venue, and didnt find a seller outside. If anyone knows where to find one, let me know.

Funny you should mention that. They played in Aus last weekend. My sister is a huge bon jovi fan and was glad she didnt pony up the money. Tickets wernt cheap either.

I dont know anout being tired from touring. They usually land 2 days before the gig. There has been no winter shows as their schedule has been around each countries summer period. So they shoukd be well rested and climatised to whatever countries weather. Whether they eat right, excercise and keep them selves in shape is another question. Plus they are only "working" for 3 and abit hours.

Funny because their official account was posting glowing reviews from Sydney which didn't mention his vocals once. But I do feel sorry for Jon, despite the records being largely awful since 1995. Because if this was still a business where you made money selling records and tours were just a promotion tactic I think he'd be finished by now with live shows.

As for Axl, I wouldn't search out a bootleg from the last two years but if he can maintain something like that Nightrain he'll be alright. You never know, he might come out the gates like Hammerstein 2006 next time if he has something to prove i.e. new music to get over.

Yep agree, i think he needs to go back to the same songwriting that he did from the  "keep the faith " album. That was their last good album, with the amount of songs that gad good hit singles.The band has made shit records since then , delved into country type music and they just dont know what sort of music  genre to be apart of. Jons vocals are no longer there and they need to write good music to fit his vocals because i dont see bon jovi being around for a long time.

My gawd. They have even ''skeletonized'' the dancing Hula girl! Is there nothing this band can't turn into a skeleton?

Can you "skeletonize" an actual skeleton?  It would be rather redundant if you could I would think.

Well they're good artists - I'm not disputing that - but me ''cool'', or with aspirations towards ''coolness''? Polo shirt wearing cricket tragic with a penchant for opera, ''cool''? I'm basically about the most cool person to have ever graced humanity haha. If they genetically cloned somebody to represent everything that is not cool, I'd be the outcome.

Thanks. I've posted videos of every GNR show I've attended and so far haven't had a problem.
