I might have done a thing :book: See y'all on Thursday - so much for Hershey being my last straw. This fucking band, man :lol: 

You did the right thing. Tickets are dirt cheap, Wrigley is infinitely more cool than Hersheypark Stadium and Axl is actually sounding passable. See ya there!

Wish. This. Wasn't. A. Four. Hour. Drive. 

Ugh. 

Boo-fucking-hoo Russ. Try living in the farm down in the South West of England, an 8hr drive from London, where GNR have played a grand total of 3 or 4 times since 2016.

4 hour drive... hang on, let me find the world's smallest violin. :lol:

Id say it’s worth it for a chance to hear Hard Skool, but that is NOT a chance I’d wish for anyone in the world to gamble on. In fact, Guns would get wind of you making the journey for it and cancel it knowing them.

Haha yeah. I just looked and it's 4 hrs, 45 minutes from my front door to Wrigley. 

I wouldn't even be taking a chance just for HS. I'm always down to meet and hang out with forum folks plus I had a way better time in Detroit than I expected. Then there's the fact that Wrigley is the last Chicago venue I haven't seen a show at. 

BUT.....nearly 5 hour drive, one way. I just can't bring myself to commit to it :/

I feel like responding to you like Duke from Rocky IV in a hushed but deadly serious voice: “You know what you need to do…..Do it……….Do it……”

I am so jacked for this show. I've been anxiously waiting hoping corona or anything else doesn't derail it. I'm gonna be there early tomorrow to try to cop a lithograph (if I like the design) and a shirt. If anyone wants to help me secure the bag, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Come on Russ, you can do it. We drove back to the northern Chicago burbs after the Indy show. Of course I was useless the next day, but it was well worth it!

I know, I know. The big deal is it being a solo deal this time. I've driven from Detroit to Chicago for GN'R at least 4 times. I've had someone with me every time. It really helps to have someone take half the drive. 

My wife has made most of the trips with me but she has no interest this time out. She even went to the casino instead of GN'R when they were in Detroit a few weeks ago lol.

What about your son, is he old enough to drive?

Tell ya what, if you get the spirit and decide to go, I'd do it sooner than later. Even now, I don't see 89 buck pit tickets at Wrigley Lasting, if they're still there.  Make an impulse buy, and shoot me a PM when you're there. :D

Hey-o!! Can't argue with that!! :awesomeface:

**Edited to add that I also plan on being exceptionally high in the pit during this show.  I'm so glad I nabbed tickets. Gonna be wild.

Was supposed to land in Chicago today.

Please, for the love of God, do not elect sleepy Joe again.

 

 

Sorry dude, hang in there though. Still lots of time to get in.
