The "we" thing can be debated for sure and I get both side of the argument. 

Having said that, if I made a list of The Top 100 Things Wrong With GN'R, Fernando saying "we" when referring to the band would be #100.

Riot shields or bust.  

Cant beleive its taken the band 3 months to do this, and Fernando only agreeing to do something like this when told to him directly by the fans. If GNR want to look at being a top tier band this

LARGER! LARGER TEXT!!! I CAN'T READ!!!

In regards to the playlist thing: It isn’t just us on the boards with the “complaints, complaints, complaints” anymore. This is not some underground secret that only the hardcores know about and have to deal with. Sure, maybe it was for awhile, but at this point, the level of incompetence has reached a fever pitch, that even the most casual fans have noticed. It’s honestly embarrassing.

No no, that was my point - I agree, too want something to buy of theirs. I also covered the fact that I was talking about all content - free or otherwise, and that I too would be first in line to buy any new releases, but I'm not mad about there being nothing to buy, I'll just enjoy what GNR I do have and spend the cash on something else I enjoy. If something comes up that would be amazing, if not - oh well. 

"Of course they don't" is my entire point, the only bands that do it, do it to be nice and go the extra mile, which is amazing. And i understand that it can be frustrating that 'our' band isn't among them.  I think though, that largely comes from how other bands tend to do things with/for their fans, it's easy to compare and get a little envious. But I just don't understand getting angry that they aren't choosing to go the extra mile for us, the whole spirit of that term is that it takes extra effort for someone at no benefit to themselves. 

Of course it would be cool if they did, but I can't fathom being mad at anyone for not giving me extra nuggets when I only ordered fries. It's awesome that FooBurger And TallicaBurger do it, but I've never gotten extra nuggets when I visit GNRDonalds so I'm not mad they didn't give me any, even though they could have just to be nice.

GNRDonalds - because the star of the show is a redheaded clown who can't sing. :lol:

Georgie Pie is a better analogy because it no longer exists.

I think sometimes people forget how disliked GNR are in the 'real world'. Sure you've got the air-guitar, ties around the forehead, wedding-disco types (who bought a lot of the tickets on the NITL tour) but other than that, they're regarded with at best mocking indifference. Most of my friends are very big music fans and consumers, and my love of GNR is a constant joke to them. Has been for years. 

They're a cheap high-street clothing brand to most people.

I'd say this is simply untrue. I've yet to see any actual proof that this is the case.

Then you're not giving GN'Rs social media an honest look. 

We went in these circles yesterday. You just saying that GNRs social media is full of positivity and praise doesn't make it true.

And you saying it's full of negativity doesn't make it true... :facepalm:

The 3rd highest grossing tour of all time?

Well, other than the fact that figure is a joke as it doesn't take into account their shows are ridiculously expensive, and the tour never ends, I was referring clearly to the upcoming shows rather than the past. 

Obviously now we'll have the "we'll never know how sales would have been as the shows aren't happening" line or the (hilarious) "it was always meant to be a Groupon offer tour" lines, so we can take those comments as spoken and head that one off at the pass.

We don't know the other ticket sales as the official data is not publicly available . But most artists probably will see a drop in ticket sales same as movies The Superbowl Fest was sold out

Corecet, my saying it doesn't make it a fact. The fact that it is, makes it a fact. 

I'll break this down one more time for you because I have no interest in going in circles with you again today since you're only interested in trolling this forum:

You keep saying it's only "this forum" and "there users" who have negative things to say about GNR. That just is not true, no matter how many times you say it. There are a ton of negative comments across all GN'R social media platforms. That's just a fact. 

Is it all negative? Of course not. If nothing else, it would never be all negative due to bots, paid promotional accounts and so on. Then of course there's tons of casual fans who just liked Sweet Child O Mine at one time, so they'll post about that, etc. 

I've never once said that GN'Rs social media is all negative. You on the other hand continually say that the users here and this forum are always negative towards GNR, which just isn't true.

If you want to throw a random number on Wiki, placed there by absolutely anyone, then sure. 

I'd take the fact tickets were on sale right up the day and the comments from people on here who were picking them up cheaply, as well as the discussion thread from people who were at the show, personally. 

The NA shows for this summer were and are dismal. As anyone who cares to look at the ticketmaster site for any show can see.

Superbowl Fest was sold out no reason to lie

 

Maybe the fact NA shows were dismal was because of a Pandemic and the entire country in lockdown?

They were dismal long, long before the pandemic was anywhere near a talking point, when they went on sale, as you are doubtless well aware.
