Thank God.. Charlotte finally. Being born in ‘93, I missed the glory days of the band. Before I woke up this morning I was burned out on the tour as much as everyone else (saw them twice in 2017 and had my fill). But I still find myself excited to catch the show in September. These few dates don’t detract from the possibility of a new album in my opinion. Doubtful they’ll debut anything this year in any way, shape or form but I’m optimistic they’ll close out the tour FOR GOOD after 2019 and 2020 will bear fruits for our patience. 

Or maybe not. The only thing that would be more disappointing than no new album is anything with the Chinese Leftovers.

How many tour legs has USA had? 4 I think. 

How many shows has UK had? 3 

Yes 2 London dates and the download festival. There’s no doubt a uk tour would sell out. I can see Europe being the first leg of a new tour.

Really hope Scotland gets one I’ll be keeping an eye out for that 😊. Also northern England as well hopefully it’s a proper uk tour and not just London 

Yeah sadly anyone from outside of the UK things England is basically just London.

Makes sense given touring is what makes the money these days. Live Nation as the promoter so i presume the venues are owned by live nation or have exclusive right arrangements with live nation. UTA the bands booking agent seems to busy at the moment receiving requests from promoters.

This whole tour has been so NA based. As a European its somewhat annoying but I guess we did get two runs anyhow. You guys reckon its partly because of how poorly NewGnR did in the US? Certainly making up for it now...

As an Australian, i envy both the US and Europe. Then again, i would much prefer if they just knuckled down and got an album out before any more extensive touring.

Pumped that they're coming to Charlotte, although it still being the NITL Tour makes me less hopeful for new song debuts

I'm so lost.  They switched from festivals to individual shows?  And bought back the tour name?  Does that mean we get returning members and new music under the same 'we thought it would never happen' name?  I'm going with Richard's closer than we think and evolved when it comes to new music.

I think they've expanded the short stint in October to include festivals and single shows. It is still being billed as the 'Not in this Lifetime' tour. I think more work has been done on the album than we think, but Slash did recently say they will be doing most of the work after these dates.

Same for us from across the Tasman. The band has only been to New Zealand 4 times 87,93,2007 and 2017. Went to all 4 of those.

I have seen the band live 8 times in other parts of the world. 

Yet we get Ed (i rip off other peoples music) Sheeran touring or turning up 4 times a year to do radio promos and intimate showcases. Sign of the times in terms of the recording industry and music in general.

We’d be lucky if we even get one. Unless, like I said earlier, they start to continuously trickle out a bunch of EPs and non-album singles instead.

Wouldn't that be fucked? Bumblefoot asks Axl to consider releasing digital singles in lieu of albums and gets rebuffed for it, only for the band to do the same after he leaves. :lol:

I think an album is more likely, since Axl is quite traditionally minded. For example, in that Brazilian interview he did with Duff, they talked about album art and other stuff.

Good point, yeah. I forgot that Axl mentioned album art and stuff like that.

did bumble really suggest that to them? And they rejected that idea? Wow. Didn’t know that!

I fancy Vegas. How much are golden circle tickets normally in the States?

One day the band one be around anymore and people will say “Damn, I wish I could see Guns live again.”

Until then, I’m going to enjoy what’s given to me and whatever comes with it.

 

See you in Charlotte and Vegas.

I honestly hear that argument. When things like this happen, I try to remember the huge runs we've had where I really wanted to see GN'R but they weren't touring. I'm really hoping for a setlist shake up at the very least though.

For Vegas specifically, it can be pricey. I don't think there's any pricing information for those shows yet but I would imagine it'll be a lot more expensive than a regular GN'R show.

"Big. F'n. News."

Ha ha ha. No. 

What's the chances we get a lean, mean, prepared Axl, at least one new song and maybe some Think About You/Locomotive/Breakdown/Don't Cry Alt etc as opposed to exactly the same show with Axl sounding awful and covered in gimmicks?

Sheesh you would think this was as American band or something. Of course they’re going to have more US legs than Europe, Asia, etc

Well he's done it in '06, '09, to a lesser extent in '16 (although it's hard to know what he'd have been like without the broken foot) and for Axl/DC. So it's not impossible. I'd say it all depends on how well things are going with the record between him and Slash. I think it was Niven a few months ago who said Slash didn't seem thrilled about working on a record of mostly Chinese Part 2 but then the other day he sounded way more positive about exactly that. If and when they do add a bunch of new songs to the set and start promo that's the best chance left of seeing Axl prepare and give 100% again, with whatever he's got left.

He had something to prove those years. 06 was after the 2002 debacle and there was hype for CD, 09 and 10 were the first years after its release, and 16 was the reunion and ACDC

He has nothing to prove and is coasting right now. He will most likely be awful the first show, and maybe slightly improve by our standard as the run goes on while still sounding bad

Vegas is the closest show to me and I would like to see them in a smaller venue but it depends on how much tickets are. Would love to go though.

As far as setlist or whatever goes if they trimmed down the wish you were here/Layla bit that would help move things along. A new deep cut would be nice too.

Very likely. At least he wont ever such as hard as poor Johnny Bongiovi.

He won’t prepare and he will sound worse than ever, propably worse than you can imagine just to stop Slash talking about a new album

I skipped on them during the second Europe leg and until something worthwhile happens I'll be skipping them again should they do a 3rd Europe leg. Same shit different day and there are way too many other great bands out there to see. 

Same here. Last gig I saw was Montreal in 2017, and I decided I'm done going to gigs until they release something. I was happy enough seeing NuGN'R over and over again since the tickets were cheap, and the shows were more fun (And even back then we at least got some rotating stuff from night to night), but NITL has bored me to death after 4 gigs.
