  1. Currently New Zealand has zero cases in the general community. 19 cases reported yesterday in managed isolation, separated from the general community via hotel walls and fencing. There can be zero cases amongst the general population. New Zealand has closed the travel bubble with all Australian states and is offering NZ citizens a space in managed isolation to do 14 days of isolation, at no cost to the individual. We are free to move around daily with no restrictions and we have had a number of music events over the last 6 months including a 60,000 sell out music concer
  2. You have to think more outside the box. Zane Lowe, Apple music 1. His interviews are outstanding as he comes from seeing things from the prospective, of being a musician himself. The artists tend to more confortable answering questions, due to his approach and knowledge of the process of being a musician. Trent Reznor is not the most easiest person to interview, but Zanes approached allowed Raznor to be relaxed and comfortable. His passion for music come out within the first 5 minutes of his interview with the pumpkins a few years ago and Billy Corgan ran with it.. T
  3. Guns N Roses management are not promotors,they manage the bands business affairs. A tour promotor will promote shows as they are the ones, who hire the venue and sell tickets to recover costs, and make a profit, with negotiations between the bands booking agent, management and the promotor in relation to the percentage the band would receive. The bands management have never stated they are a concert promotor and it states clearly on the bands website, what they do. The bands booking agent would have received an offer from a promotor and that offer would have been presented to
  4. It's amazing to think so many of you still think it's about a new album or music being played at a live show. America has and is still going through a pandemic that has killed millions of people. Things will never be the same.. regardless of a new album or song being played. I cannot remember having to have a COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination to gain entry into an event before COVID-19 appeared around the world. That in itself takes a percentage of the population out of the equation.. In New Zealand were we have avoided the pandemic, our border is still closed
  5. It was in New Zealand. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/barbra-streisand-metallica-harry-styles-whats-next-for-eden-park-after-six60/3M4OV3XTZQFHHFPUKCNEPLF45A/ No community transmission here, so we are good to go. Travel bubble with Australia is holding, so the band can travel between the two countries without doing 14 days in managed isolation (a hotel) in New Zealand upon arrival. Expect 40,000 in Dunedin and possibly 45 - 50,000 in Wellington. If they had planned to preform in Auckland, it would be 60,000 as Auckland (biggest city in New Zealand)
  6. Same of you are so blind, that you need to take off the rose coloured sunglasses. Any attempt to force a group of people together, who for their own personal reasons, see no reason to, or have moved on in life, would not be beneficial for all involved. Some of you live in a fantasy world and believe past members would return to the past and be the same people as they were in their 20's in a past century. Time would have allowed this to occur naturally. Three people, have put the past behind them and are clearly different people and have put their issues to bed, have and are m
  7. From a person who is a New Zealander, currently posting this on a Tuesday morning, taking my daughter to school for the first school day of 2021, day to day life is normal.. The only visible signs of COVID are if you walk past a Managed isolation Hotel, with fencing around it, or take public transport were mask wearing is mandatory. Yes, our lockdown did have an effect on business even today. Some hospitality and retail business have struggled and many of these businesses have unfortunately not survived. Yes, for a period of 8 weeks our freedoms were restricted. That wa
  8. Some of you guys really need to step outside the world of this forum. To wish any person a happy birthday and then mention something for your own selfish reasons, is more of reflection on you as a person.. Cannot some of you just wish the man a happy birthday and leave it at that... How about being a decent human being, and in this case, leave your issues at the door... Happy birthday Axl
  9. You cannot control what the band members or their management do.. Does the band, its members or management control what you do in your daily life.. We are just fans.. We as fans can choose to listen to our favourite tracks, watch or listen to past line ups of the band based on your own preferences or buy a ticket to see the band live.. Or you can walk away.. That's your choice, not the bands or their management team.. Do you guys not understand, how petty some of your comments are..
  10. Does not take long for these threads to go completely off topic and we find ourselves back to bitching about the band or their management like we do, 5 pages into any new thread or topic. As my uncle would say, leave that shit at the door, when you come in... How about i get things back on topic. Social media reaction in New Zealand to the band returning has been positive. Really great to see a lot of fans planning road trips from the North Island to the South Island with most planning on seeing the band twice. Already sorted accommodation in Wellington and about 6
  11. Thank god the boarders are closed in New Zealand, and we dont have to deal with the bitching in person while attending the shows. Even if the boarders were open half of you bitching would not travel to see the band outside of your own shores. Plenty of Australians and New Zealanders have travelled far a field to see this band play.. Maybe because we don't expect them to return to this part of the world again so we are making the most of it.. The band will sell out the venues and people attending the shows will rook out and enjoy themselves. I am looking forward to November
  12. Welcome back to New Zealand Guns N Roses. No doubt 40,000 kiwis will role up and will enjoy an opportunity to see the band live, some since 2017 and others for the first time. The family and I don't need to travel the world to see the band. A simple flight from Auckland to Wellington and then down South. Rock on 2021.
  13. So you are saying its disrespectful of the band to treat the fans in a certain way, but then you tell the band, "or go the fuck away for good..." Yep, if thats being respectful, then you wounder why the band acts like it does towards certain fans, more so fans who are happy to tell people, whom they have never meet or have no involvement in their daily lives to go the F**k away for good...
  14. There are so many layers involved and lots of moving parts before you even reach the artists themselves in this case GNR. Promotors, venues, industry related business as sound, lighting, staging, transportation etc may not be able to survive financially to supply a service as a business. Even employee's associated with the artists themselves may not be able to survive as all involved will feel the affects of the financial crisis. The process starts at the bottom and works its way to the top. If a promotor can no longer supply a service, to a booking agent, than a booking
  15. We would he know whats going on. The bands management team aren't tour promotors or the bands booking agent. The promotor in each country would manage the refund process or in the case of the booking agent they would facilitate that process and be the link to the band via there management team. The bands management would pass any concern onto the booking agent, who would than contact the promotor in relation to a refund. Promotors often hold funds from the sale of tickets in a holding account and must wait for a period of time for those funds to be cleared and released into t
