Is it the same guy who saw Ferris Bueller pass out at 31 Flavors last night? If so, he's legit.

Asked if there will at least be a new song in 2019, and Fortus answered, “It could definitely happen.” As far as new material, Fortus mentioned, “there might be stuff started.”

As for touring, Fortus said it will be a while before GN’R hits the road again, and that it “depends on whether or not we have a new record out. If we have something out, then we could tour, and that’s why we want to [make a new album].”

Richard Fortus, dec. 2018

I'm sure that insider, like all insiders, is full of shit. 

To be fair, that info came from Big Boss from the old sp1at-forum, who has definitely some connections as far as I'm concerned (quite a few stories came from him and gigger back in the day through interviews and such). 

Of course, he also posted rumours, which turned out to be not true, but on all forums, he is the one, who I put most faith in.

When the band did those theatre shows as warmups in 91, was there any info be it radio or interviews that they would be doing illusion  songs as part of those shows?.

I have an original article/ review of those shows from a magazine and the reviewer stated that they didn’t know what to expect, and the guy wasn’t too kind on a few including estranged.

Although can we trust insiders when even some of the actual people in the band seem to have absolutely no clue what is going on regarding releasing a new album? *cough* Richard Fortus *cough* :lol:  For example Fortus basically implies in all his interviews "I have absolutely no idea when the songs we worked on will come out but I hope they do"

 

One thing I have learned over the years, I just think it is best not to get hyped over anything unless it is an official announcement coming from GNR and even then not getting hyped until a new song is actually able to be listened to.  I am sure that Big Boss guy has some cool stories, but nobody is reliable IMO, not even the people in GNR anymore

I don't think so, at least I can't remember having read it. Maybe @Blackstar with here amazing memory can, though.

Here's what I have written about the warm-up shows: http://www.a-4-d.com/t4046p180-the-history-in-their-own-words#16036

And here are info and reviews from each of the shows:

May 9: http://www.a-4-d.com/t1719-1991-05-09-warfield-theatre-san-francisco-usa#5708

May 11: http://www.a-4-d.com/t1720-1991-05-11-pantages-theatre-los-angeles-usa#5713

May 16: http://www.a-4-d.com/t1721-1991-05-16-the-ritz-new-york-usa#5715

EDIT: But since they did play lots of Illusion material on the Rock in Rio shows in January, I suppose informed concert-goers must have expected the same for the warm-up shows.

Sorry, I know exactly what you mean, maybe I phrased my post wrong. I just wanted to point out, that for me, that source holds much more credibility than for a example if I read something which came from gunsnfnroses. Of course he can only pass something on, which he's heard (or share his touring/marketing knowledge) which turnes out to be not true in the end.

The "insider" on gnrevolution implies Slash said at the Miami show he is "expecting" an album:

He is expecting a new album, that is from the recent concert

Next cycle could be the UYI thing mentioned ages ago, but long way off, not sure on that

Slash will definitely get a new album. Just it'll be with Myles

If they had recorded anything together there's no way it could be kept secret. 

Of course there is. A simple NDA concerning also any photos on social media etc. You tell, you’re fired as well as charged, and you’ll stand no chance getting employed in the industry any more. That’s how you do it.

He posted recently on his Instagram something about a new single from The Psychedelic Furs, which he produced. EDIT: Single from a new album ready to go.

The post I referred to was from a few years ago - could still have been linked to this Furs release I guess.

I'm still yet to be convinced any recording has gone on. The only thing I've seen that combats that thought is the Slash guitar thing- but that could have been for anything. 

 

This event alone is the only concrete proof we have at this point, despite all the Slash talking. The guy went to Axl's place with his gear, ok.

What amazes me the most, is how could it be possible that in this social media day and age, nothing about further meetings has leaked. And that's the part that frustrates me regarding new music. We just have those vague interviews.

I very doubt they've been in studio, or else we'd have at least some info.

I'm of that view too, sadly. 

OK, so no one directly involved in any studio work would have leaked it, but people would have been seen, someone would say something. 

I just think back to Axl and AC/DC - it leaked, with photos, pretty much as soon as they rehearsed.

That was the first thing that came to my ming while I was writing. Man, we had all those spoilers in a heartbeat. Very exciting times for sure.
