Here is the story so far of my involvement: So obviously they were looking to put old stuff (flyers, demos, pictures, etc.) on the boxset.  Why they aren’t all on there I don’t know, but I have hea

Yes. They planted that tree there 20 years ago just for this moment, to black him out.

I really don't understand why everyone is saying AFD 5 when Izzy's picture is clearly being blacked out.

It's not blacked out. The billboard is there. The position of the fanmade photo isn't perfect because of the tree in front of Izzy.

I think it's just a radio thing starting to promote the upcoming euro tour. Nothing more.

Izzy sold his shares in GN'R, that tree is absolutely, 100%, in it's right to spoil that view.

In my humble opinion all this will be is them playing Appetite in its entirety..

 

 

-*maybe Izzy and Adler make guest appearances at best... but Dizzy, 4tus, Frank, and Melissa all tag GnR in all their social media. No way they would do so if they were out and a full reunion was in the works. Also note Adler being a crybaby per usual.

Don't get excited about the original 5 happening. IMO if the original 5 was the plan and they've released billboards... Steven would be clued in and NOT bashing GNR in the press. My vote is that the original 5 is NOT happening (right now). 

Next run of shows and the run after that (my guess) will be the same band we've seen since 2016.

Wait so without reading this whole thread...what is going on ?

A billboard with AFD skulls (each member) was put up, and now people think a full reunion is happening:facepalm: oh wait... It's also WAY unfair if GNR don't do AFD shows now:lol:

Why the domain FM? Unless they are moving to the Federated states of Micronesia, couldn't it mean another GNR radio type of thing connected to AFD? Of course since they are always late, they missed the anniversary by a year.

Gnr.com is taken ;) Seriously though, it is weird that they use a FM domain.

I don’t think it’s an AFD5 reunion, sadly. If it is the timing is odd with the Euro tour coming up soon. Would Izzy and Steven join that tour? Unlikely. And if they joined for a US trek after Europe, and announced it now, I think the European fans would feel a bit miffed..

I think the billboard is just a teaser for more US tour dates coming soon.

Reader's Digest Version:

Another Billboard publicity campaign has started for a site from UMG-gnr.fm, various people are busy building it up into something grandiose they will inevitably be disappointed in and blame the band when it fails to come to pass.

Before the Apollo show they had an exclusive Sirius XM GNR station for several days (maybe weeks).  I assume this is something similar.

I hope it is a re-issue. AFD seriously needs a remaster IMO - some type of deluxe version is well overdue when you consider it's one of the most important hard rock albums in history.

Other bands have 10th, 20th, and 30th anniversary editions of records that are arguably less important in the scheme of things.

It will be a AFD remaster.

Which will be very disappointing if it doesn't include some great (and i mean great) bonus material. 

If it is a remastered AFD, I would assume it has more to do with prior commitments made to "Universal Music Enterprises" (whom gnr.fm is registered to when they created it on 3/21/2018) to generate revenue and little to do with the current band.  Otherwise, it would not make sense to create a new website for that purpose.  I think the site may have more content than just an announcement for a remastered record that would likely only sell to hardcore GNR fans. 

GNR.FM is only owned for 1 year which would suggest it will be a short lived campaign.  I'm guessing a free station streaming GNR for a few weeks (or months) to pump fans up for upcoming performances.
