I like the idea of being on my death bed, saying "just refresh that page one more time for me....I'm pretty sure that insider was full of shit, but I want to be totally sure....." 

Axl is close to 60 Reunion is now over 4 years old The last unheard new song was played in 2006 The last studio album was in 2008 The last new song before that in 1999 Every s

Part of me wants to believe new material will eventuate in March according to the rumor.  However, 3 years since the reunion began, and nothing, suggests any new music is a pipe dream............and I'm starting to think, they don't want to release new music, just collect the loot of nostalgic touring, which, would be way more than any release anyway.  Just an opinion, hope I'm wrong.

I think the moment we see/hear mention of Slash doing another album (and inevitably a tour promoting it) it puts to bed the idea of any new GNR material for me. 

The last Slash album/tour cycle in addition to more GN'R dates just killed any hope of a new album for me.

Anyway, when you think about it, what better opportunity would they have to introduce a brand new song and draw immense attention than at the Super Bowl, with millions of viewers. Fingers crossed, eh?

It's not the Super Bowl though - it really is just a show at an arena, aimed at selling tickets to those who might be going to the Super Bowl. I don't see that the show is special, or even notable really.

That's my last hope at this point. That show is on a Friday, new music gets released on Fridays and all of the hype around the Super Bowl will be at a fever pitch then. 

So... my (dumb) hope is that a single drops that morning, then they play it at the show that night. Then they leverage the Super Bowl hype to announce the new album, release date and fall US tour. 

If none of that happens, I'll pretty much e checked out for the rest of 2020.

See you in 2021?

It is massively aired/viewed though, right? I mean, I don't know, this is what I reckon.

It's not aired or viewed as far as I'm aware.....

I thought some of the stuff was either broadcasted or recorded for later in the past, but it doesn’t matter – in any case, it’s still a huge opportunity. Be a shame to miss it.

Imagine the first clips of the "new song" going around the world with Axl completely butchering it live.

Avoiding Axl's mid range should be the way to go for any new music that they want to perform live

It probably won’t be broadcasted. It’s really just another show....

The SB commercial angle would be interesting. It would however have to be part of a bigger brand tie in with someone like Budweiser. Thing is I just don’t see the interest to tie in with some 50+ yr old rockstars new song that no one wants to hear. Not when you're spending 5 mil dollars on a spot 

I could see a single dropping unannounced to hype preorders for an album 4-6 weeks out.
