GNR Announce Miami 2020 Super Bowl Fest Show

Recommended Posts

I honestly think Axl (who we all know makes the decisions) is just fucking with people at this point, 5 years ago no one actually thought they would ever see Slash and Axl on the stage again, now he is saying you can all go and fuck yourselves

My heart did sink a bit when I got the email about this. I see the 'it's just another show, don't worry' argument, but it doesn't bode well if they're booking into tacky looking naff-events like this. Slippery slope.

Why?  The NFL doesn't allow artists to perform live but instead lip sync over pre recorded vocals. 

I don’t believe that’s entirely accurate. The RHCP had to pre-record the music for time constraints.

Damn I wish I could go to Miami to see GNR! How awesome is that? GNR doing their own super bowl show for all their rock fans.

It would have been awesome if GNR were offered to play the real Super Bowl. I bet Axl wanted too much money! lol

Because the RHCP were playing with Bruno Mars and the NFL wanted to assure its time window, so they demanded the band play to live, but pre-recorded piece of music. Anthony still sang live vocals. I’m a little surprised you think U2, The Stones, Prince and Bruce Springsteen lip sync to their own songs for the NFL.

I think the bands you mentioned were before this was put in place.

Possibly, it’s fucking odd that the RHCP would be asked to precord their song. That band is literally one of the bands I can’t imagine anything less than authentic.

Recurring events[edit]

The Super Bowl has used lip-synching during singers' performances at the live-to-air sports event. During Super Bowl XLIII, "Jennifer Hudson's performance of the national anthem" was "lip-synched ...to a previously recorded track, and apparently so did Faith Hill who performed before her". The singers lip-synched "...at the request of Rickey Minor, the pregame show producer", who argued that "There's too many variables to go live."[45] Subsequent Super Bowl national anthems were performed live. Whitney Houston's rendition of the anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl was also reported to have been lip-synched.[45] Such pre-recorded performances for the Super Bowl's halftime shows and national anthem have been commonplace since the 1990s; the NFL has confirmed this as standard practice.[46] In January 1998, singer-songwriter Jewel was criticised for lip-syncing the American national anthem at the opening of the Super Bowl XXXII to a digitally-recorded track of her own voice. This was noticeable as the singer missed her cue, and thus, did not sing the first few words of the song.[47] Super Bowl producers have since admitted that they attempt to have all performers pre-record their vocals.[45]

The stones were the only ones to play 100% live

This is about the National Anthem, which isn’t even worth standing up for,so that’s why they neuter the performance.

U2 played lived. And I’m almost certain Prince did.

Music was live but lip synched vocals. 

I saw some doc about the stones at the superbowl and ot said that the stones were the first ones to do it 100% live

 

U2 was 2001-2002 when was prince? 

Maybe it was after.the.stones.

I saw 1400 for decent seats , but I was navigating so quick I didn't pay too much attention and was afraid It would sell out fast.  I wanted to get 2 tickets for 400 :/

The section behind the Golden circle seems to be 500 plus fees. 

Pit seems to be 1500

There's not one artist on planet Earth I would pay $400 to see, nevermind $1500.
