1. ISE 2. Brownstone 3. Jungle 4. CD ...    

1) those shows will not happen  2) using the AFD logo is so misleading, but typical for GN'R and their management 

There will be an all new set list. By all new I mean Double Talkin Jive will be dropped and Think About You will be added.  Some black and white pics will be posted on Instagram. With the caption

I’m almost certain the promoters are using the cross. And the cross represents the album and the music more than individual members. 

Only in the land of GN’R does the band have nothing to do with the art used that promotes a tour... 

I've been hearing those kind of excuses since 2007 when they announced the Australian “Chinese Democracy” tour, that Jarmo assured me, had nothing to do with Axl or the band, but the tour promoter... :facepalm: :lol:

Something I didn't consider before: the time between the last and first shows of 2014 and 2016 is 664 days. If my predictions are right (Europe and NA 2021 dates will get canned), then that would be 602 days of rest for Axl. While I want to believe he'll return to 2016 form, I feel that it's just going to be worse. Gold Coast, be prepared for rehearsal level vocals :wacko:

It’s obvious the promoter is using the image. I don’t understand why any forum member believes the image should not be used since it features members no longer in the band.

........or that it being used is new or different. It's been used throughout the NITL tour: on tour-shirts, lithos, posters, all sorts. I can't understand why it's use in this latest advert is even worthy of note really. 

The advert looks like it was designed by a 16 year old student on the first day of a computer design of course, which is the only really notable thing about it!

Remember what they did with the Apollo show... AFD crosses everywhere, only to have a regular setlist and no Izzy/Steven guest spots.

Right.

If Steven and Izzy weren't involved then, locally in the states-- I don't see them being flown overseas in the middle of all this for shows that may not even happen/ or be allowed to draw the crowds to make it worth the band's while to split that "fp money" with any former members.

but who knows... It'd be great if it happens.

Why does everyone keep saying these shows won't happen? Australia has been vigilant. There were 14 cases in South Australia and they slammed back into heavy lock down within a day.

If you choose to speculate that Izzy and Adler are back based on the use of the AFD cross, which has been used throughout the NITL tour, in one crappy looking advert, then the future dissapointment is all yours. 

Won't stop some naive people though, just as that clearly fake pathetic piece of paper hasn't stopped naive people thinking a new album will be released on Nov 25th. 

Tragic all round.

It’s one thing to use it on merch etc. but to use it in the main artwork to promote the tour does absolutely send the wrong message.

Last time they toured Australia in 2017, they mainly used the blood splattered bullet logo. And if they showed any pics of the band in tour promo, it was the one of Axl, Slash and Duff together on stage. So, it was pretty clear who the tour advertised as being the main guys in the band. 

To not see the difference in outright using the iconic AFD cross, showing the five original members, and trying to sell it as such, I think you must be tragic.

Yep, more chance of Rob Gardner and Tracii Guns being on the stage !

Of course there's a difference....in our minds. But most people won't give a fuck about this image. They're probably barely even aware who Izzy and Adler are! It's grab the silly wig and 'dress up like the 80s night' in town. GNR tonight, Spice Girls next week. We're very much in the minority who give a shit about these things now, in GNR world......

If people choose to read anything into the use of an old image being used to promote another tour of old material, the  they should go right ahead- spend a year speculating that Izzy and Adler are back. 

Again, this image has been used throughout the NITL tour, on the tour shirts, on posters, and on lithos, whether any of us feel that was sensible or not. If people choose to ignore this fact.... they can go right ahead. 

It really does beggar belief that people think the AFD 5 are back but they chose not to mention it in the press releases to promote ticket sales for the tour.

Exactly! But people seem insistent on expecting something based on the use of an image in a shit advert. Nobody will be able to tell them otherwise though....so roll on November 2021! It'll take November 2020 to roll past to convince them that press release is fake too. 

We can blame the band all we want for making adverts that could be interpreted as slightly misleading.....but some level of personal intelligence learned from last behaviour has to come into things somewhere on the fan front!

Fuck Jarmo, I've seen less dick sucking in a whore house than that guy does to GnR management. It's worth a few hours entertainment debating on the HTGTH Fb page about how shit the band is run, supplying lots of evidence and reading his ridiculous excuses.

Just got my tickets for Sydney. First time being front row for GN’R. Aside from 2013, but does that even count...? :lol:

Apparently presale tickets for Sydney have sold out I think?

That's awesome if true! No doubt they left the Saturday night free to schedule a second Sydney show.

I also just got my ticket for Melbourne. Can't wait to see the MCG packed once again! So glad I have this to look forward to on the horizon :slash:

I bought tickets for Brisbane and Gold Coast shows. Will wait and see how 2021 pans out on whether or not I fly to Sydney or Melbourne for those shows.

Anyone checked the prices? Yikes things have changed since the last tour...

 

Link to prices

How the heck do you even post an image anymore??

vip is around 650 us dollars, cheapest is about 160 usd.

to them its pocket change, for many fans two mid level tickets plus travelling and maybe some merch is more than half a month of hard work.

disgusting.

Is that right? 495 aus dollars for GA standing?! 

In UK money you're talking nearly £300 for GA and £500 for the pit! 

That is absolutely fucking outrageous. 

I knew they were now a band for the non-discerning rich folks now, but that really is something else.

Humans are a dumb species. I still remember when everybody complained about the cross with current band members and now, when they use the old one again, there are people who have their hopes high that Izzy and Steven will return. Those people will be the first ones complaining again, about the use of the old cross without a personal change. I mean, everybody should know by now how this band operates. There is no system behind all that.

If you really think this is a sign for Izzy's return than it's your own fault that this band is a big let down for you.
