Hers is on the left from Toronto, mine on the right from Saratoga Springs NY, 3 days apart. It would be 26 years until we knew each other, yet we both held onto these stubs. We are gonna make a cool photo/ framed thing with these, because for us, it all started because of GnR...

Anybody else have old school ticket stubs to post? Or GnR love stories? 😆 There’s gotta be something...

Damn, that's awesome that you guys got together.  I see that her ticket was quite a bit more expensive, was it because of it being in Canada?  It makes me want to scrounge around for my old tickets but I think they're long gone.

Yep that was the exchange rate. It continues to bust our balls to this day... If you find your tickets, we’d like to see them...

I recall seeing Original GNR tickets in Captain Marvel and it made me jealous of anybody who saw them in the 80’s. Like how many people actually saw GNR in the 80’s and appreciated it.

Fucking almost anyone who saw GNR live in the 80s and 90s appreciated it!!!!

I believe this Saratoga Springs show was where the audience chant for "Get in the Ring" was recorded. Hope you sang loud.

 

Yes it was, and yes I did!

I’ve got a few. They’re in a frame with some pictures, but easy enough to capture with my camera phone. 

But I don’t see a way to upload to the site?

Great story.  Not the best pic but it’s from the 01-01-01 vegas show.  Wish I got to see them in the 80s/early 90s though

can’t figure out how to post a pic

Those ticket prices...just show how way overpriced it is today even without inflation.

WSJ had a great article over the holidays on why ticket prices are so high. It’s not just GNR. Good read

Totally, it's ridiculous bordering on criminal.

I really envy you.. My dad and my uncle always tell me how they got to see Queen, Zeppelin, Floyd or the Stones in the 70s for like 15-20€. They would ask their friends who didn't even listen to those bands but they would still come and join them.. If I asked my friends if they want to see GNR for +150€, they'd call me mad

Happy memories. It was a scorcher. I managed to get in the circle. It was free then
