Europe stadium shows only happen during summer. So when this is cancelled, they will likely push Euro tour to summer 2021.

Probably just push all 2020 into 2021 IMO, but no new album of course.

OFFICIAL UPDATE FROM GUNS on Facebook, MAY 11th 2020 - EU SUMMER TOUR WILL NOT BE HAPPENING GN’R Fam: Sadly, the upcoming European tour will not be happening. Things are changing daily and w

Yeah - poor GN’R. Hard to be the big rockstars who have made hundreds of millions of dollars over the last four years and might not get away with making another hundred million this year. Don’t worry

GNR's social media team can't even be assed about changing their cover video on Facebook. It still has cancelled dates from last month up there. Their communications are terrible.

How easy would it be to make one post that simply says "We, like every other artist, are figuring out the next steps. We'll update you as soon as there's news to share"? 

It’s funny - they’ve now posted something on Facebook showing LiveNations refund policy and it’s caused more confusion than anything. Majority of responses being “oh I guess it is cancelled then?” :lol:

It's probably Live Nation's responsibility to cancel so GNR is liable for the cancellation.

For the GNR Fam :facepalm:

 

 

And anyone who needs or wants their money back will have the option to get a full refund within 30 days once a show has been canceled or new dates have been finalized.

 

I'll give them credit for at least posting something, since Fernando was called out on reddit a few hours ago about the band acting like the tour is going ahead. They probably can't just outright say the shows aren't happening yet.

And yea 'GNR fam' is stupid.

I don't think the decision is up to GnR.  It appears they are contractually obligated to play the shows they have scheduled unless the promoter or whoever booked the shows cancels/reschedules (or the govt prohibits the show from occurring at the time it is scheduled).  This is seemingly why they went ahead and played the mexico date.  

Yes. But that still doesn't mean that shows that can't be performed now would get cancelled.

At least now we know for sure, it is Fernando. As if we needed confirmation. ;)

But really, fuck that 30 days to say whether you want to return tickets. I got 25 shows booked this year, some I only attend because they are in proximity to another and can be done in one trip. How the hell am I supposed to know which ones I keep when all of them get rescheduled? Fuck them.

they are offering up to 150% of your ticket value in "concert cash" as an option as well, it sounds like your best bet is to get that concert cash and than just re-buy your tickets with it

That does sound a good deal. Too good to be true.

Yeah completely understand that, but there needs to be some context as to why they are posting it. I don’t think it would be unfair to say that the shows were at risk and they were awaiting more information.

I take it to mean the US shows are not happening really.

There’s a real chance that stadium concerts won’t be able to take place until September 2021 which would rule Europe out next year too.

And with the way the US and large parts of Europe have and are handling this, the forecasts get gloomier and gloomier.

This is exactly why there was no update until now. 

Better to post nothing than a vague update that lets people fill in the blanks themselves.

Right, but if you have spent $$$ on tickets, travel and accommodation, should you have to interpret something? Least they should do is provide a proper statement on the current status.

Totally understand that - just surprised how they can’t post something to say “We intend to play these shows but will be carefully monitoring the situation and will provide an update once we have been able to determine a resolution”. That would show fans that they are wanting to but that it isn’t officially postponed/cancelled, while actually showing some respect for fans that will need to make travel plans.

Chinese Democracy 2 with Buckethead and Brain on 80% of the music. :awesomeface:

You know, I wouldn't mind a track or 2 left over with Buckethead on it. He won me over with his There Was A Time solo. But put it on some deluxe edition as bonustracks or something.

Ha, deluxe edition. Even I'm talking crazy now.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm with you totally. Clarity is absolutely what's needed.

To be fair, at this point even a standalone single might as well be considered a bonus track. The bonus being that it even got released!

Unless Id never seen Guns or unless there was some special reason to attend the show (like your friend who got you into GNR is having a birthday or something) Id be too let down and offended to attend the shows now. This is no way to treat fans.

It sounds tempting, apart from the fact that I would have to go through the same hassle to get good seats again. But really I don't trust them enough to let them keep my money for 1,5 years, if the worst case scenario should come to pass. And what happens if this company or the promoter goes belly up, because they can't do concerts for a year.
