Sorry.....but anyone saying that Axl meant something racist by that remark is REALLY reaching or just needs something to be offended by. 

Are you new to Guns N Roses?

All effort spared

Its irresponsible to play Mexico or anywhere

Hmm. Yeah. In a time where everyone and their mama is cancelling and postponing their tours, for a big band like GNR to just go ahead and do it, regardless of whether those postponements are illadvised or not, just is.

None of these bands only kept one original member and kept going. So yes, it does sound stupid. The majority of the people from the original/almost original members are still there.

To be fair, Black Sabbath did. Iommi was the sole member for about 3 albums late 80’s/early 90’s I think. Headless Cross is a very well thought of album. It just a ‘different era’. You either think of CD as a GNR album or you don’t - that’s it really.

If the term spent in a band counts, then it counts! Some of the guys that with were with Axl/GNR from 97-2014 had nearly 20yrs in the band.

Doesn't really matter. It's more like they spent 20 years in Axl's solo band. Really, things are not always black and white, but in the GNR case it's really as clear cut as it can get. There really is a distinct line between original/remnants of GNR ad the band Axl tried to pass of as GNR. The transition in members from the originals to what we eventually had, didn't happen flowingly, where at least some played with the originals and contributed to material that formed and continued to form the reputation of GNR. Maybe things would look differently if they had released 10 albums together, but with one album to which some members didn't even fully contribute, makes it really an easy distinction.

Yes, but Tony Iommi was the riff master and they continued to pump out albums. Geezer stayed on for some of those. Bill was there when they got a new singer. And still, many do consider Black Sabbath with Dio or anyone else as a different band. Not the real Black Sabbath. And only once Ozzy returned the real Black Sabbath was back.

Which is why no-one is really ‘right’ on this subject. All personal opinion.....and for laughs....Im one of the few who prefers Dio Sabbath to Ozzy Sabbath...!

Yeah for me the real Black Sabbath is the Ozzy version.

And about this silence, if the concert is happening or not... maybe they don't know by themselves yet.  Maybe they are doing a three hour meeting, right as we are talking... 😂

Why do they want to play this show so bad during an outbreak and national emergency? Is it contractual obligations? If they’re just playing the same old setlist and it’s not to kick off anything new then what a waste...this band is so laughable, not to mention they are putting lives in danger..

WHAT'S THE STATUS 

With the last few posts in the last hour or so, It looks like the band is actually moving forward with their plans. I am taking a very wild guess here and saying that everyone involved with this particular show is fine with the situation. I imagine that the only thing to stop tomrrow's performance is the Mexican government.

LOL. Their greed puts Gene Simmons to shame

If a company wants to work with a talented player to create new products what’s the harm? 
it’s literally how they make money. No different then a athlete endorsing a sneaker.

Mexico City authorities said is not justified the cancelling of Vive Latino festival. They are currently on phase 1 of corona virus. The lady is the mayor of the City
