North American Tour Dates Announced

Ticketmaster is playing games with the TX show. They hardly sold any tickets and now all of a sudden it looks like most of the tickets are gone. You can tell by tell pattern of the remaining seats that they just pulled a bunch of seats to make it look like it is selling better. 

I noticed that. I checked on Sunday night around 10PM, and then checked today at noon CST. Half the venue magically sold over a 38 hour period. Including the ADA section on Slash's side of the stage, when every single ADA seat on Slash's side was available on Sunday night.  What a joke! I'll buy my ticket during the week of the show for pennies on the dollar! :)

All these people cropping up with tinnitus, I feel bad for bringing it up now!  Still, not the worst thing to have, you’re in good company cuz Pete Townshend has tinnitus, along with a pen he once used to send @spunko12345 s mum a Congratulations card.

How did you know 😁 It was congratulations on my birth actually. An acknowledgment by a legend that it is time to relax because another legend had arrived.

Any more rumors of opening acts for the cities not getting the Pumpkins?

Do you think a casual fan is going to want to buy a ticket if they hear "all new"? What does that mean, you think a casual fan is like oh maybe they will play Dont Damn Me and Anything Goes this go around, if anything it will be off putting because I am sure they liked the show last time and they are afraid they might cut out the hits for "newer" songs

I have problems with tinnitus, never needed ear plugs at a GNR gig. The only band who really wrecked my ears live was  Motörhead. Each time I saw them my ears would whistle for 2 fucking days afterwards ... 

Invest in some good ear plugs. Best decision I made. I enjoy concerts more - I can ear things more clearly and my ears never ring when I walk out.

Anybody notice any promotion for these shows? Posters in Citys etc.

Sister lives in Wrigleyville and she has an ad on her metro stop. 
DC market has it on TV and on video billboards outside Capital One Arena. It’s a hard push.

From the article:

"As of Monday afternoon, roughly 60 percent of the $310.75 floor seats remain up for grabs and more than 80 percent of the cheapest tickets – seats on the 500 level priced at $108.50 – are unsold.

Also still available are hundreds of VIP package floor seats, priced between $688.80 and $1,056.16, as well as several dozen $500 VIP package seats on the 100 level.

There is also plenty of space remaining in the general admission pit, where a ticket to stand in front of the stage runs between $751.94 and $1509.62.

Added to the available inventory are dozens of “verified resale” tickets, including several floor seats directly in front of the stage priced at a whopping $4,075.75 each."

Wait... 750 and 1500 for a pit? is that a resale or what?

Source is above mentioned article. From what I understand FOS tix are offered around 4000 in resale. But that won't trick me into buying regular tickets as they look cheaper in comparism. For this band in their current state, anything above 100 regardless the seats is usury.

Im pretty sure a few posters around the venues arent saving this tour.  They need a BIG name to either co-headline or open to draw people in. Simple econ, promoters are going to get financially destroyed when they end up playing football stadiums at 1/4 capacity. 
 

Any rumors floating around about other bands, or potential theories??

That’s the remaining VIP priced tickets for the PIT, not resale. 
 

Also, not sure if it’s the same in other cities but for Toronto they have a ~$20 premium per ticket for the two seats closest to an aisle on each side.

Question:

Has anyone, since the NITL tour started, seen them front of stage at the Pit? I just bought tickets to the Atlanta, Bobby Dodd Stadium, show in August. I REALLY loved the Charlotte show last year from the floor. I have bad hearing problems and I was wondering if I should bring protection or is it not too bad up front?

 

4 of the 5 times I've seen the NITL tour, I was front row. They're definitely not the loudest band I've seen, but it wouldn't hurt to bring earplugs anyway. Worst case scenario, you just keep them in your pocket.

You’re undoubtedly doing some amount of damage to your ears, but it’s frustrating because I haven’t found plugs that don’t ruin the concert experience.

 

Earpeace makes some good ones. I use them while drumming/jamming with friends (we get pretty loud sometimes lol).

Does anyone know if ticketmaster will let you exchange your tickets for seats of equal value? I got floor seats on the live nation pre sale for philly, but there are better seats available now for the same price.

yes they usually will, for a fee of like 10 dollars a ticket. I've done it almost every time I've seen a big stadium show.

I live in metro Detroit and haven’t heard a thing about it.  I saw a Janet Jackson commercial this morning lol.  I would think they would do some promotion and advertising.  I typically listen to Sirius XM so I’m not sure if the local radio stations have been plugging it.

In Toronto, on the Gardner Express Way near CNE, there was an electronic billboard that had the GNR show on display. I couldnt catch if it was promoting an all new show or anything special though.

Those prices are insane!

You could literally take a round trip from say New York to Lisbon, Portugal, cross the entire Atlantic Ocean, watch the show and go home, for less than 700$. GA in Lisbon is 75$ at current exchange.

It's in the rotation of the digital signage inside Penn Station NYC; started before the general on-sale.  Nothing crazy, just that awful medieval dude/hands/logo image.

I remember back in the day (OK, 2016) when I would've elbowed babies and rolled the hobos out of the way to take a picture of that...

MetLife looks downright empty so far. Good news for me. My plan is to try to snag a cheap ticket on the secondary market closer to the show, and all appears to be on track. Crossing fingers for something on the floor or in the 100s for under $200.
