  1. Hammerstein 2006 has to be in the top 5 nu gnr shows

  2. Ya know, I hate being negative just for the sake of it. And yeah, forums and the internet in general are ripe for over the top and, often needless, griping. I'm just honestly bummed. Axl, Slash & Duff are touring again, and I just can't be moved enough to feel any level of excitement for it. I get that "brand name" bands often tour just for the sake of it to rake in revenue, but the wasted potential of GNR is just too much sometimes. If the band didn't tease new music and studio stints, it would simply be what it is. But they do. Especially in the last few years, but with zip to show

  3. I fail to understand how anyone from Chicago that is into Pearl Jam and GnR or anyone who has seen Pearl Jam at Wrigley fails to understand why PJ at Wrigley is an inherently special show for them, when it's just another show by and large for GnR. I mean are you really that clueless about bands that play special shows in your city and you've even been to referenced shows lol

  6. The Illusions are too big, sold way too much and produced too many hits to be irrelevant in any shape or form. And that's without considering the trilogy videos and the notorious UYI-Tour. They will be remembered as the biggest band in the late 80s and early 90s and probably as the last real rock n roll band. Even talkin about AFD as one 'good' album is bullshit and you know that.

  7. Oh for sure. Sadly, one of the main things that I think now with GNR is the missed opportunities and wasted potential. It's just genuinely sad. History will remember them in two ways; for big fans the wasted chances will probably dominate, and for casual fans they'll be remembered as doing a good album in the 80s then being largely irrelevant Ah, it makes me too annoyed to think of it. I still hope it won't end this way. This band are too good for it.

  11. My assumption/opinion is an educated guess based on my 30 year history of seeing GN'R in concert across the US. I've watched the overall steady decline of their performances, including the 4 times and 3 different venues in Chicago that I've seen them. The only venue I can ever recall Axl treating as special has been Madison Square Garden. The first show at Hammerstein Ballroom I went to was pretty special, but I don't think that had anything to do with the venue. Who knows. Maybe they'll do something special at Wrigley, maybe not. Either way, sharing opinions is what the forum is m

  12. I like a lot of grunge music, but I have to agree here. A lot of the early 80s hair metal was too silly and a lot of the 90s grunge was too self-loathing. Gnr (especially in the late 80s) was like a nice balance between the two. Hell, it’s even in the name (“Guns” and “Roses”).

  16. I’ll probably keep wearing mine after the pandemic. It’s been nice going over a year without getting a cold or flu. Likely keep mine on when visiting non social areas like grocery stores or doctor’s office. If I’m meeting friends at a bar or restaurant then I’ll keep it off.

  19. It’s all good. Thank you. And, thank you for your positivity. It rare ‘round these parts. The band won’t do anything special at Wrigley. I was just under the impression that all bands approached it like Pearl Jam. I hyped myself up about The venue.

  20. Maybe if the new album really is a mix of old and new (assuming it even happens, which it probably won’t) it might bring things “full circle.”

  23. Agree with you 100%! After our mayor dropped the mask mandate, some businesses were still choosing to keep it and this one guy harassed these poor young girls working at the yogurt shop and fuckin broke their door in anger. Unbelievable. It's a mask. GET THE FUCK OVER IT. Every business has the right to make up their own rules.

  24. Yeah, ir was a one off event MJ did consisting of two shows at MSG. I had tickets to the 09/10 show. So if things had gone differently, I would have been flying out of New York on 09/11. I did see Michael in Detroit on the Bad Tour, so I'm good with that

  26. No, I haven't been to MSG. I was supposed to see Michael Jackson there in 2001 but my travel didn't work out. That was the only MSG show I've ever had tickets for. I really want to see a show (nearly any show) there some day though. I did see GN'R in 2002 though, here in Detroit. That show is notable for a few reasons. They played Riad that night, which I believe is the only time they've ever played it in the US. The show is also notable for Axl's mic throw / show walk out during and after Patience

  28. The American Idol guy? Yeah, I listened to the two albums they did, but he's very bland and only serves to highlight just how integral Scott was to the groups success.

  30. Nightrain into Brownstone would be cool; I've always thought that song was better suited closer to the beginning of the show than the end.

  31. I assure you none of these shows are going to be sold out. The tour kicked off here in Detroit in 2016. The buzz was at an all time high back then. The show was even touted as "sold out" about a week prior. I threw an all day party at my house and a buddy came to the party but wasn't going to the show. About 4 o'clock or so, he caved and decided to get a ticket. He was able to grab a face value floor ticket off of Ticketmaster with ease. As we were walking in, tons of "ticket brokers" were dumping their tickets for half price. If it was like that for the tour opener 5 years a

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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!

  37. I disagree. When I saw GnR in 2006 and they played unreleased songs like Better for example the crowd was dead and just looking around at each other because they didn't know what song was being played. You want your opening song to hype up the crowd. Playing something that 99% there won't know isn't going to hype them up. Save any new song for like the 4th song in the set and talk about it first.

  38. 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.

  39. Oooh, you'll be in trouble now! Hater, negative, sad person, no life, etc etc. Didn't you know they're all selling out, and it's only people that aren't fans that think they're not based on such nonsense as looking at how ticket sales actually are?

  41. It's an absolute doozy! I got to the top of the clock where there's a yellow block with firespitters and I was trying desperately to collect the coins while not getting hit and "hawhawhawhawhawhawhaaaw-ing" myself off into oblivion. I got most of them, but a few skittered off the edge and I was left with 98 and a sinking feeling that I was going to have to repeat the whole task for the sake of two coins. Fortunately, after a desperate hunt through the clock (all the while singing "just two more coins" to the level's music) right back down at the beginning, I found two coins floating in the air

  43. It’s one of my favourite songs off CD. 😂 Great riffs and some stellar vocals (at one point he hits a high note which is unreal) and it’s a great rocker (of which there were too few)…I know I’m in the minority but hey-ho….🤣
