  1. Would you pay the extra $200 for a distancing circle if Izzy and Steven replaced Richard and Frank for the AFD songs? I'd have to think about it!
  2. What do you mean? Wouldn't it be fun for everybody to have a 6' circle to stand in the middle of. The energy of the crowd would be mindblowing! To your point, even if they can do shows with distanced seating like football games in some states, that would be a terrible experience for a concert. Either there are enough vaccinations to do a somewhat normal concert or they should cancel/postpone.
  3. It's highly unlikely but if the vaccine rollout goes as planned (which is not what I really expect) and they are effective against all these new variants there is a small possibly that the US could have concerts in July. Very small possibility but not completely impossible. There is supposed to be enough vaccine supply to vaccinate 300 million people in the US by June. I don't really think the logistics will get good enough to inject all those doses in that time frame even if the supply is there but maybe there will be enough play money in the next relief bill to accelerate it. You never
  4. If the shows don't get cancelled (which will mean a high percentage of US population vaccinated before summer), I think ticket sales might be better than you expect. There is going to be pent up demand from a lot of people just wanting to do "something" that they couldn't do since last March. The flip side is the economy will have fewer people who can afford the high prices so the prices may need to come down a bit.
  5. I haven't read through this whole topic but: #1, the NA dates are still on the website #2, there is no chance they would play the earlier European dates and then not the later NA dates. Either both go on or both get cancelled Although the vaccine rollout hasn't started perfectly, there is still a chance that all in the US who wish to be vaccinated can be vaccinated before June assuming the Johnson and Johnson vaccine gets approved soon and starts rolling out in March. Whoever said early in the thread that nobody under 60 will be vaccinated this year is wrong. Leaving out
  6. Even if they had new music ready to be released (which they don't), it makes no sense to put it out now. The money is all in touring and new music can't sell tickets when they can't have concerts.
  7. For the Missoula show the email said you have 30 days to request a refund once the new date is announced. If no new date has been announced by July 20th, a 30 day window opens to request a refund.
  8. Doesn't the slow sales of NA stadiums lead to a perfect solution of socially distanced seating? I'm only half kidding. Mark off squares in the pit 6 feet apart with room for 2 people each square. Stagger the regular seats like they do in the white House briefing room. I'd guess around 40% capacity is possible to do. Combined with being outdoors it should be fine as far as risk (with socially distanced lines and capacity controlled bathrooms). Might not be the most exciting atmosphere but after the lockdowns people might be happy just to get to go to a concert.
  9. Forget about the banned large gatherings, the band won't be allowed to travel to Europe (at least not back home). The international travel restrictions aren't getting lifted any time soon.
  10. I was just thinking what is more mental torture? Being "safer at home" or checking this thread to never see a real sign of there ever being a new album?
  11. Very well said. I don't think it can be argued that Ted Nugent is a bigot just based on his own statements. I will say that not only is "backwards" used synonymously with "bigoted" but it is also used to refer to religious people. Then it is kind of lumped together that churchgoing "rednecks" are backwards and bigoted. I am personally not religious (although sometimes I wish I was and think that having faith would help me deal with certain issues) but I don't disparage people for their beliefs.
  12. I'm not talking about Ted Nugent who I agree has some screws loose. I'm talking about the insult of "rednecks." A very small percentage of "rednecks" look to Ted Nugent as a cultural leader or any kind of leader. There is a small subset of ignorant bigots in all groups. Hell, there are even sub groups of black people who are bigoted against other black people based on where, specifically they come from. Insulting "rednecks" is just as bigoted as somebody insulting any other group.
  13. Just because you don't like a group of people or what they believe in you shouldn't be throwing insults like that. You'd be the first to jump on a "redneck" for saying something about another group of people. I've known many "rednecks" and all of them have been great people and none of them have been "backward ass" as you so nicely put it.
  14. A vaccine has already been created in record time. Unfortunately, the testing needs to go on for a fixed amount of time no matter what.
  15. Maybe Axl had inside info about the coronavirus outbreak and knew that at least the beginning of the tour would be postponed? After all, he has a great relationship with the Chinese government! :-)
  16. I think that there needs to be more research into how this virus spreads with respect to "large gatherings." A nightclub or party can have one infected person be in prolonged, close contact with a large percentage of attendees. At a concert or sporting event, each person is only in prolonged, close contact with the people seated right around them. If precautions are taken at entrances and concessions (which may involve spacing people out and longer waits), it is possible that a concert or sporting event would not provide the same opportunity for spread as a nightclub or party. The vi
  17. If, in December 1991 somebody asked you what would happen first: A) Guns n' Roses with Axl and Slash in the band would release a new studio album or B) There would be a global pandemic that banned all sporting events and concerts how many people would have answered "B?"
  18. Before 2016 I bet you never thought you'd say that about a member of GNR!
  19. The other day on SiriusXM Classic Rewind the DJ played a recent clip of David Lee Roth. After hearing that, I will never complain about Axl's voice again!
  20. There won't be any bad publicity because all the youtube videos will be taken down so there will be no evidence that they actually played the shows in Mexico.
  21. If this virus isn't controlled by August (or really by May): a) Clearly all of these extreme measures do not work and b) If the world remains in lockdown we will be living in the dark ages again because the worldwide economy will cease to operate.
  22. Outside of the high risk groups you are far less likely to catch this and end up on a ventilator than you are to end up on a ventilator on any given day by chance and bad luck. That's even try if you live in Wuhan.
  23. You are right about the fear of the unknown causing this insane panic. In a way there is a cure. The human immune system. At least 94% (over 99% with the better data from South Korea) of people that become infected cure themselves. If the media reported it that way instead of doing a death watch like the cannon in The Hunger Games, maybe people would calm down a little bit.
  24. From somebody who is not in a hot zone in the USA, I agree with what you say. What is the point of life if you have to live like that? The world has gone insane. I get that the fatality rate is higher than the flu but the fact remains that the flu kills several hundred thousand people a year and, other than encouraging the flu shot that is only partially effective, nothing is really done to prevent it.
