No clue really. Vegas residencies can be a really odd thing. Most acts that play Caesars charge roughly $250 for floor / close to stage and about half that for balcony. I could see GN'R asking double what the average act does in that same room. So at a wild guess, I'm gonna say $400 for floor & close to stage, $200 for balcony.

Well if you end up being right, then idk if I'll be able to do it. Especially since I want to go both nights.

That could be doable for me then.

Yeah, same here. I plan to get good seats one night and cheap ones the next. 

I have ALWAYS wanted to stay at Caesars Palace. My friends have always wanted to go elsewhere (it has a reputation for being overprice and run down). I checked their site to see what cheapest room rates are for that weekend.....$340 for two queens. 

November typically has cheaper rates than the rest of the year. But I realize now that technically these shows are taking place on what will probably be the widely celebrated HALLOWEEN WEEKEND 🎃🎃 for tourists. 

So we might be up against some pricey rooms...

According to Caesars' site tickets will start at $149 for the Vegas shows. Told there is not a bad seat in the house.

Yeah, according to that post above I would be WAY off with what I expected. I'm still not going to change my Vegas plans around to make the show happen but that's FAR more reasonable on price then I was expecting!

Don't get it twisted, every one of us want a new album. The difference between us is that I don't get all worked up over it. Perhaps its because I am a lot younger (presumably) than most members here, but I am just thankful for any chance to see GN'R. I can think of too many incredible artists who I love but I will never get the chance to see. 

All we are saying is, enjoy them while they are here guys! Because someday they won't be. 

I'm old and I feel the same way :lol:

I would love new music, but I could never complain because they're doing shows.

Exactly. I do not understand how people are bummed they're touring. It's the greatest thing that's ever happened as far as I am concerned.

In my not so humble opinion, Get Ready for standard price tickets ranging from $499-$149...but good luck buying them.

I wouldn't be surprised to see most available tickets to be either VIP packages or Ticketmaster Platinum tickets in the range of $800-$900-$1200 each.

I think the reason fans appear to be 'bummed' is because they're seeing just how full of shit this band actually is given that they keep mentioning some pretend album like it's their main priority. They should just be honest with the fans and say something like, "Look, we're old, lazy, and lack creativity. Plus, one of our primary songwriters isn't even in the band anymore. So instead of bullshitting you about some album that we never interned to write, we're just going to tour our greatest hit repeatedly and take your money every chance you give us."

I'm no expert but it seems theyre completely oversaturating the market. 4 year tour hitting major A markets 2-3 times, B markets up to 2 times, and now C and D markets in smaller arenas. Their draw will get smaller the more they do this. 

If stopped in 2017, recharged and did an album (lol) in the mean time, and came back in 2020/2021 they could have probably done another stadium run.  Same strategy worked for AC/DC and Metallica. Now they are touring like almost any other nostalgia act- KISS, Aerosmith, Eagles, etc. Arenas at $$$ are the max with that strategy 

They dont care I guess. Money is money :shrugs:

If the dates sell-out then your assumption is incorrect. GNR have not played these cities, so it’s actually really cool the fans in these cities have an opportunity to see GNR. These guy are all approaching mid to late 50’s, and there aren’t any classic rock bands behind the GNR’s, Metallica, U2, so enjoy while you can because when they are gone there will be no replacements. Plus, it gives me an opportunity for some more lithos, which is my favorite part of this tour.

Not surprised at this news, it was fairly obvious after the Mexico dates were tacked on to the festivals another mini tour was in the works. So much for whoever it was that said NITL was done (Fernando, Slash???) :lol:

Having said that people will go and have a good time so it's not the end of the world and I can't pretend I wouldn't be pleased if they came back to northern UK after only doing London last time.

Doesn't bode especially well for the slightly hyped new album but that's nothing we aren't used to here!

Oh I didn't even think about that... That might be kind of tough as far as lodging goes. And of course all the people there.

I should be happy! I know I should and I'm sorry for that, but...

GODDAMN IT! Quit milking the same setlist with the same show and please start really focusing on a new record!

Common guys! There's 3 years with the SAME show!

Got you on that, but I really think people overestimante Izzy's input! He's cool, he did some great work with them, but his solo career is so erratic, he has like 80 songs released already, but if you put them all together they don't make a average/good GNR song.

The Ju Ju Hounds were cool, specially "Shuffle It All", but to me, that's it.

But this is exactly what Slash said. They will be doing shows between september and october and after that, they focus on the album....that is their plan at the moment....frankly I don't get the dissapointment.....just check all Slash's interviews.....

Thanks. I knew one of them had alluded to the last leg being most definitely, totally it. :rofl-lol:

Slash also said this when asked about the last leg (before the one-off hawaii show was added): “That’s it for the Not In This Lifetime Tour!” XD

after the Hawaii show, all of the band’s social media pages made it sound like the NITL tour was over as well.

with that being said, I’m kinda glad the nostalgia trip touring is still continuing, in a weird sorta way. While I want new music just as much as the next person, a part of me actually kinda enjoys GnR as a nostalgia act.

It would be cool if they played some new tracks on these dates and worked out the kinks. I think UYI would have been better if they released the albums in '93 as opposed to '91. Simply for the way the songs evolved and got better. Same thing with CD songs, release the 2002 tour versions. I feel like that's how they got the best results for Appetite, cutting their teeth with these songs live. A might optimist probably

Play all you want, I just want Axl to sound like he used to. And I don't mean 80's or early 90's, even though that would be cool, but good enough for us to enjoy his performance and not cringe. I get so bummed listening to some of the videos on YouTube.

Looking at the seating chart for Chesapeake Energy arena in OKC, there is no pit section at all. Is this accurate? Do other venues have the same layout? Perhaps it's not updated? Was curious, because Pit tickets are best to buy right before the show. So IDK if I should wait or not?

No. It clearly states that it’s a default seating chart. There is a PIT section for Wichita.

That is a joke really considering you have to get there and back eat and drink some people will likely stay in a hotel 

Also, after looking at a few of their setlists, it seems that they are playing the same 17 song set (including 3 covers when they have a MUCH larger catalog than GNR) every night.  Also, Joey Kramer was in some kind of accident and hurt his shoulder so his drum tech has done a bunch of the shows.  I guess Frank is preferable to a drum tech! :-)

"We haven't started working on the new record yet because we added some dates in the fall, but I promise we'll be going to the studio after this mini-tour! Axl has some great material ready to go!"

...or some variation of that quote will be said this fall.
