10 years too late - You could be right there. But on reflection of the NITL Tour they should have jumped on it in 2018 and took the year off to release new music. The Tour was still fairly fresh and the hype was big. 

Surely not from a financial standpoint. Axl, Slash and Duff probably earn more from 5 arena shows than they would from an album, even if it had a hit or two.

Highly unlikely they would have any songs that provide royalties to their heirs in 50 years like some of the AFD songs.

Dazey, it's absolutely impossible to release music in 2020, haven't you heard the news from Slash? There's just no way to do it. Such an abstract concept, with you know, the internet and all that, rea

For anyone who wants it, the Live Nation pre-sale is Thursday at 10am local time.  The password is SOLO.    Please, please, please do NOT waste money on Nightrain

What? The Stones are in another stratosphere. They released highly relevant music through most of the 60's all the 70's and early 80's and have a catalog of almost 450 songs.  They have had close

Well yeah but from and artistic point of view you'd think they'd want to. Ticket sales for this tour is down as they're flogging the same old songs.

New music means new merch and makes touring more appealing for fans to buy tickets

They’re not the only band struggling in terms of sales for a stadium tour .The Stones maps on Ticketmaster have equally as many blue dots or unsold seats for most of their shows as the Guns shows do .At least at the 6 or 7 that I checked out of curiosity

In Atlanta the only sold out quickly is this teen corean band K-pop. No Rolling Stone, no GNR, no Justin Bieber, but K-pop......

Well then the Stones are also probably overcharging, playing venues too big and doing the same old thing to the point where no-one is interested.

The Stones are trying to cash in for their Gran kids-Gran Kids financial future. The prices on their 2018 tour made Guns Tickets seem cheap

It's really no surprise these shows aren't selling is it? People just don't have the money to throw away on things like this.

Yup. I have tickets for Alice Cooper with Lita Ford and Tesla opening. Those ticket shave been onslae for a long time and they have only sold maybe 1/3 of the tickets.  I also have tickets for The Black Crowes who have only sold about 1/3 of the tickets for that show.

It looks like they sold like 500 tix total to the Toronto show.  The whole seat map is blue.  I wonder if they will cancel the show?  By the way Toronto will see anything...

 

Just curious, did you turn off the "resale" option?

 

I wish there was a concrete way to tell what tickets have actually been sold

WOW! GNR only sold 500 tickets in Toronto?!? Isn't Toronto considered the New York City of Canada?
GNR should simply cancel the tour now (blame it on COVID19 "Corona Virus"), and spend time focusing on new music...

Toronto is Canada's biggest concert market, and while 500 tickets might be hyperbole it's definitely noteworthy. Check out the seat map. You can sit pretty much anywhere in any section - that's how many seats are still blue. It's hard to justify $300 on the same show again with an Axl who sounds progressively worse and no new music on the horizon. Yeah there's $80 up on the roof, but even that doesn't seem worth it at this point unless you missed the band last time.

GNR should team up with Toronto's own - Rush.  Geddy, Alex, and drummer to-be-named.  That will help sell the tix!

Wow that's piss poor. And it's at the Rogers Centre. That's a fair size. The fans will be rattling around in there. It don't sound like you'll need a early entry to get the rail

I was told the original plan was co-headline tour with Smashing Pumpkins. If the tickets continue not to sell maybe they will invite the Pumpkins onto the whole U.S. run and give them co-headline status to get them onboard.

Jesus. Team Brazil actually did it.  They finally drove the reunion, which started with such a bang in 2016, right into the ground.  They couldn't even sell out US arenas in 2017, a year later.  What the fuck were they thinking announcing a STADIUM tour with no re-branding/new music to promote?  Just unreal, however on-brand.

uhm... don't forget those arenas came after the 2nd US leg and they were more than 90% sold out...
