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....."

So is this new album dropping on the 24th or 25th?  I don't want to get in line too soon. In 2008 I did the midnight release at Best Buy and I was the only one there. I felt like a twat.  I know it's likely a digital release, but I feel like I should line up somewhere to show my support.  Circle K, maybe? The bank? Maybe I should get ice cream, so at least that way I still get ice cream. 31 flavors, 31 excuses why it's been 12 years since that sad night I lined up on my own to buy CD on CD.

Maybe try Zia records.

Fernando debunked this in Reddit a looong time ago

I am definitely not saying that I think the document is legit, because it probably isn't... But I looked through Fernandos Reddit and couldn't find any debunking of this document and when I reverse Google searched the document I only found results from earlier this year? Can someone show me when and where he debunked it, out of curiosity? :)

Fernando commented "fake" in one of those posts that showed this document.

Hhmmmmm, no 12 year celebration post on FB, Instagram or Twitter for Chinese. This to me says a lot about how the band feels about new music 😏

I think it’s probably more embarrassing for them to point out that it’s been 12 years since they released music, than about celebrating the anniversary of CD’s release.

What about the free can of Dr Pepper?  Mountain Dew perhaps?  Those cheap bastards!

It really is  sort of impressive when you think that for the entirety of 2020, nearly total inactivity, they haven't managed to shove out a live album.....which would require such little work and effort that you could probably get the whole project sorted within a week if you set to it. 

I almost admire the willfulness and obstinance at this stage.

Axl is a perfectionist though :lol:

It would need to be the greatest live release since the mighty Appetite For Democracy.

Someone is having a laugh, at who's expense I am not sure:cry:

A pretty laborious way to get a laugh, too. I mean I get the same effect by watching the Selects, but to each his own.

I still can’t get rid of the suspicion that the reason for not having released a proper DVD yet might be in that someone may think giving people a professional recording of the shows would render them too lazy to go see it live any more, thus not buying tickets. 
That is, of course, under the condition that the shows to come will be essentially same as those we’ve already seen. New lights, two new covers, same set. 
Is that even thinkable…?

It sounds plausible, but if they really think this far, I can't understand the release of these fucking selects - because after seeing that, the last thing you want to do is to attend a live show of this band.

True. It's confusing.

More likely Axl doesn't want it released as it will showcase his steady vocal decline.

That in turn may cause the release to get bashed by fans and critics which could damage future ticket sales.

Keep Axl happy, keep the tour money rolling in.

There are only two reasons there has not been a live album that I can think of; 

1) Your scenario, whereby for some reason (based on what evidence, I have no idea)  someone believes that if you give people a live album they won't buy a concert ticket

2) They don't want audio/visual documentation of the tour out there as they are embarrassed by it or aren't happy with people seeing it. 

I'd lean towards the first one, as there are ways round the second. 

Either one leads back to a fear that it will impact ticket sales though in my view- whether by that believe that people would just buy a live album instead of an expensive ticket, or that people might not buy a ticket based on a performance they thought wasn't good enough. The former isn't accurate I don't think, and if they believe the latter to be the case, then that is simply awful.

Right, and now let’s fuse it: folks watching it at home from a couch (holding a beer) instead of going: think of 40+ year old fathers of families, with backache, weak bladder and/or not much money to spend (especially these days), who’ve been given the dvd as an X-mas gift for example. Totally conceivable, isn’t it? 
The latter version would be worse, yet there’s one hitch – the 2016 leg. I mean, they were great – and that includes Axl – so why would they be so afraid of it, right? 
I don’t know. It could be that Axl’s worsening form as a comparison, that’s definitely plausible, as it’s been said before. 
And there’s still also that point of view I’ve mentioned in some other post, i.e. that we sweat this kind of crap every day, whereas for them it’s just a couple of months off in an uncertain period where such idle time is globally understandable. Drinking margaritas poolside, being assured by the management that some sort of merchandize is always rollin’… what’s the problem, man…

All very true. 

Sure, we care way more than 99 per cent of people a out what they do, and do dwell on it a lot.....but they can't look at their attitude to releases and think it's normal. They must see and look at what other bands do. They can't be blind to it. 

Taking a potential release from the 2016 dates into account then, there's a third theory: and that has got to be fear and/or lack of confidence on Axl's part. It would require very little effort.....so him saying a simple 'no' based on something we can't discern must be a factor.
