Would you agree to extend NILT to a one more leg to make it the highest grossing tour of all time or at this point "enough is enough"?

Let Slash tour with Myles for a year and then regroup in 2020 with Matt Sorum for a Use Your Illusion 30th anniversary re-release/tour in 2021

Slash needs to tour his album cause after a decent debut on the billboard 200, it's gone into free falling mode..think its still falling now.

Sounds awesome to me.  Matt Sorum needs to rejoin real Gn'R, his replacement is the worst part of the reunion -- and I don't mind Melissa at all.

I'm sure touring with GNR is making more money for him than his album. He's gotta pay that alimony somehow!

I'm glad people all over the world had an opportunity to see Axl, Slash & Duff in what may have been the first time ever, but this tour should have eneded after the 2016 run.

They can tour as long as they want as far as I am concerned. I just wish they would drop the prices and play more songs from the classic era.

Couldn't agree more. They could continue to tour until they retire or die onstage and I will attend every show they play within 5 hours of my residence regardless of whether or not they release new material.

As much as NITL is out of this world, with Slash and Duff back, huge crowds, tops shows in 2016 (hello Houston), I’d prefer for them to record something new / release more CD-era material and then tour behind it.

They can keep touring all they want, always good to see them live, I just wish they'd put out some new music.

This.  

I understand most fans want new music but I don't understand how any fan of a band wouldn't want them to tour.

I believe that many fans-  real, surreal, unreal or whatever - would like them to tour with something new... you know, like songs.

Right.  So do most hardcore fans....that still doesn't mean fans should not want them to tour...lol.  If they're capable of still selling out arenas/stadiums without new music, who's anyone to tell them not to tour?  Now if you choose not to see them unless they have new music, that's your prerogative.

Just my 2 cents.

Tbh, Robin's replacement seems to be the weak link in this lineup, but different strokes I guess.

They've proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they're one of the great acts of all-time, even with only 60% of the original lineup. The 'Not In This Lifetime' tour is going to rank as probably the second largest reunion tour in history, next to that of The Eagles in 1994. That said, there isn't really much reason to continue it into 2019, unless money is their sole reason for doing it.

Time to finish the tour, sit down and collaborate on some new music, and record it. Create some buzz in 2019 by teasing new music, maybe dropping a new tune into a movie, and then unleashing a full album in the latter half of next year. It's the logical next step, but as we know, the history of the band has been anything but logical in a number of instances.

 

Exactly! This time next year the new Terminator will be out, Jim Cameron heavily involved, T2 reunion with Linda Hamilton and Arnie. Would be a perfect time for a GNR song to be included almost 30 years after YCBM! Also a great first re-introduction for the band as a recording unit, it would get double publicity too from movie and music world. Then Album/ or EP in summer/late 2020! #Wishing

Keep touring. I think they can finish off the album in a month. 

I expect them to start playing new songs on tour for a leg and then put the album out when they are on tour.

They could put out a Best of album as the soundtrack to the Terminator movie. Like ACDC did for Iron Man 2. There was a couple of new tracks on that too.

If they break the record, it will be a hollow victory after all the time it took to do so, but there's no point in changing the name if they’re not going to change the set.

One more leg to beat U2? Yes. 

We know we are going to get 14 good songs eventually with Slash and Duff.

Everything is predestined  to win. I really think the more money they make the better the album will be.

You're not the grateful dead. Enough with the constant touring without new music to support. Axl's voice is shot. End the tour, start cutting new album, and Axl, start cutting the junk out of your diet and hit the gym, so that when you DO start the next tour in support of the next album, you'll be respecting the ticketholders with a good performance.

People seem to think if GNR stop touring then they MUST be working on new music. I'm under the impression that if they stop touring they just go silent and do nothing.

Run the tour into the ground, Europe, South America, Austraila/indonesia/japan...etc hasn't had an Arena tour like the US did in 17'. That's where I see the band going next. Might as well still call it NITL because the set and tour imagery doesn't need to change if theres no new material. 

How long can they get away with calling it NITL is a better question. They already had a 6 month break and now another 4 month break. Slash is touring next summer, so even if they picked up a winter Europe arena tour in 19' it would be a bit of a stretch calling it as the same tour with such a long time off in between legs.

I don't think they have to be working on new music, and I dont think people think it must be happening. Saying that, This tour has run its course, the performances are always a bit weaker each leg, more autopilot. For me its either go away and come back with new music and a big tour, or go away for a while (probs release smth along the lines of a UYI boxset in '21) and come back with a heavily re worked setlist to fit the band better. 

I've seen this band 5 times in Europe, all great gigs, and the only one that was noticeably worse was DL '18 (start of a run). Saying that, we havent been at '16 levels since that year and Axl clearly needs something different to raise his game because breaks of nothing obviously dont inspire him.
