  1. When i saw them at Wembley '91 they opened with Perfect Crime and half the concert was unreleased UYI material, it worked really well. We had to wait another few weeks to get the albums.

  2. It's So Easy is such a great song to open up with because it's not until 1,5 minute into the song that Axl hits that high ''FUCK OFF'' scream and that's what everyone is waiting for. When I saw them a few years back everyone started cheering as soon as he hit that scream. And no, it didn't sound like Mickey. He actually sounded good that show.

  3. I'm only 25 so I've only seen GnR live a few times in the 2010s ... I will go to any show I can to see my favorite band live no matter how repetitive the show itself is ... Axl will be 60 next year and I don't see him touring much longer

  4. Absolutely not. Nobody in the press regarded CD as a legitimate GNR album, and for obvious reasons. Trying to bring legitimacy to an ever changing line up by releasing a self titled album would not have been well received! When people generally think of GNR, they don't think of a man with a yellow rain coat on, with an upside down KFC bucket on his noggin, and a Michael Myres mask!

  5. It may also take some time for COVID fear to wear off and for some percentage to feel comfortable going to a show. I mean, there are fully vaccinated people walking around with masks on for no apparent reason where there are no mandates or policies that require them to but they are, for lack of a better word, afraid to take them off.

  8. I can't stand Ticketmaster. I truly hate the disclaimer that "tickets prices may fluctuate." In other words, if you're a diehard fan, you're going to pay the $250 for pit. But when the venue doesn't sell out, that same ticket can potentially be had for hundreds less. Moving toward airline-style pricing is just another way for these scam artists to bend over true music fans. Those who benefit are the ones not worried out about missing out on good seats, or missing the show altogether. It's lame.

  9. Different times...in 91 pretty much everything they played on stage sounded great ..now, it would probably be better to release new stuff before it gets played live, I guess.

  10. Impossible, people on here have insisted that GNR always sells well and the low ticket sales are nothing to worry about...

  11. They had an entire year off to polish up and complete an album. No excuses such as touring too much. They all have studios in their homes and access to anything they need, so Covid can’t be used as an excuse either. If a new album doesn’t happen this summer, it’s not going to happen. 5 years into this tour and 13 from Chinese democracy is more than enough time. I think any hope is just about gone for new music.

  14. I just wish they don't tour for another year with just Hardschool as the "new" song. They should start testing out new material to familiarize the casuals in the crowd.

  15. My thoughts as well. I also remember Fernando saying in his chat that Hardschool likely would’ve been performed at a later date had the 2020 tour not been cancelled

  16. Exactly. Pearl Jam at Wrigley is an experience for many reasons. They always bring their A Game there. For GN'R, it's just another stop for the cash grab train to make.

  18. both Mick and Tommy save the Crue. I've seen them so many times and each time Vince gets worse and worse. He's overweight and drinks way too much. When their latest tour was announced Vince said he would get in better shape because a stadium tour takes a lot more energy to pull off. It's been 2 years and from the pictures I've seen of Vince he hasn't done a thing to better himself. By the time the Crue concert does happen next year will he still be fucked up. This guy can get a personal trainer and eat better, but I guess he figures Crue fans will show. Yeah, true, but if he can't pull off thi

  19. I still think they should change the opener to Pretty Tied Up. This lineup will probably sound good on it, and they used to open with it occasionally on the UYI tour so it would fit the UYI anniversary theme.

  23. I think the pricing for this tour is poorly planned. NA has been toured relentlessly since the reunion. Compare the value of these GNR shows to the Motley, Def Leppard (and Poison AND Joan Jett) tour and I can se how it's a steep ask for people. GNR either need a new selling point for the tour (AfD in entirety or UYI theme) or an arena level support. New music would get attention but I doubt it'd make many casual fans drop a couple hundred dollars. We'll instead get neither and some fans will get very good deals on their tickets closer to the shows.

  24. So I should just wait until the week before the show to buy (if I don't win from the radio)? My show is on a Monday so it would have to be the week prior.

  25. As the guy in the article says, it’s the “mythology” that makes GnR as big as it is. Not saying that’s a good or bad thing. It just is what it is.

  27. It's about time to change this thread's name. A name that's not related to music and that's not related to anything new. Maybe 'Big ol' fart' would be a proper name by now...

  28. Yeah, new times. And looking at reviews of the shows for the first half of '91, not everybody appreciated a set with so much new material.

  29. Man opening the first show with Hardschool would be so killer ... Almost nobody in the crowd will have any idea what it is and they'll go nuts as the guitar riffs & drums come in and the song picks up then Axl runs out deep low voice "All cautions made..." That would be so cool & not corporate though so it'll never happen ...

  30. Didn't dig it much until @Gambit83used part of it for the AFD pod intro, and I gave it more of a listen after. Like most of CD, it grows on you over time.

  31. Very bizarre! I'll put my hat in the ring and say that I have never seen GNR at Wrigley Field or Pearl Jam at Wrigley Field, and I'm not really that much of a Pearl Jam,,,,,,but am capable of recognising that Pearl Jam there is far more special and iconic. But hey, logic, facts and common sense? Yet again, we need to stop with that!

  33. Yeah. Not too often they come to my neck of the woods, either, and I'd happily go to a show and have a great time. It might not be GN'R in its prime but it is still part of a fun night out.

  34. I live in Australia, and they only come down here once every five years or so. I buy tickets every time they come, because nobody knows when the last show will be.

  37. The first show in July should be the telltale sign. If they introduce a new song, everything points to a new LP, or EP. If they play the hits and a few deep cuts from yesteryear, it’s another nostalgia tour, and there’s nothing new coming. That’s why I’m on the fence about going to the Fenway show. I don’t need a rerun of the Gillette Stadium shows from 2016.

  38. Curious, why is one special and the other isn't? I've only been to two shows at Wrigley: Foo Fighters and Billy Joel. Both awesome. GNR is my favorite band and I'm a diehard Cubs fan. Seems to be a match made in heaven for me.

  42. I doubt One in a Million will ever be played again. I know it may sound racist, but it's not that this hasn't or doesn't happen to this day, especially after 9/ll and now after covid with the Asian Americans. I do love the chorus though. GNR will probably always end with Paradise City. That song rocks live!

  43. The difference between Vince Neil and Axl Rose is that Vince has always sounded like shit. Even in his and Crues prime, Vince was never a great live vocalist. Axl on the other hand, has and can continue to sound incredible live when he chooses to give a shit

  44. I agree with that. I think that's Slash's fault for that. He does the same thing for SMKC as well with RQ. It doesn't need to be a 15 minute song. I actually agree with you on this. That Vince Neil video was rough to watch.

  47. Wow, the singer absolutely nails Axl’s vocals, and the guitarist nails Slash pretty well too. I say fuck off the current old Axl and get this guy on vocals
