Buying a VIP ticket to get right to the front is $475. A GA standing section behind that is $242. I was in that last time and it was pretty close to the stage.

Are those prices posted above not accurate then?

They do seem astonishingly high......

Lets say GNRs new album consists of 14 songs and they each get played like 5 million times on spotify. (AC/CD Shot in the dark pr. now has 13.7 million plays)

This will generate about 280 000 dollars for this one streaming application alone. You also generate income from streams from Tidal, Youtube etc and digital downloads on Itunes.

I think that in Axls head this is pure artistic integrity and he does not want a product out with the name GNR on it that is not holding up quality wise against AFD/UIY/CD.
We all hoped this would change with Duff and Slash in, but it seems like nothings changed.


 

 

I think it goes far beyond what they make off streaming though.


This is people reconnecting with the band, new fans and old fans giving it a whirl and wanting to buy tickets even if its mainly for the old stuff.

That is 13.7 million people listening to AC/DC who might then be very interested in a tour.  

The AC/DC album is actually alright, of course nothing groundbreaking but reasonably enjoyable and it's got them back in my headspace if they do announce a tour, which will probably have no more than 4 songs off the album but make them a shit load of money.

GnR just need to get over themselves, I mean on the not on this ever ending tour they could have found the odd 3 or 4 day spells here and there and a few months in the studio this past year to do knock something out of reasonable quality and given them a much bigger platform to launch the last set of dates off.  

Reality is when they open this tour, it'll be Loony Tunes into It's So Easy with possibly some different graphics, perhaps.

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.

Im hanging for the  thursday when the rest will be selling. I want the diamond reserve standing for 245.00 which will get me the same view i had last time when i paid 379 for same diamond tickets in 17.

Unless there is a vaccine rolled out in Jan/feb of next year, im on the fence if those europe and american shows going ahead.

Yes i agree that the band could have released some music during the NITL. Wasnt the material on spaghetti incident recorded during the illusions tour?

Hey man feel exactly the same here staying up midnight tomorrow to secure some Diamond Standing tickets in Melbs. Just a question though, im a fairly short guy so just wondering from Diamond Standing is it easy to see the stage or is it kind of blocked by the premium payers in the pit? Just asking as its my first concert (pitiful for a 20 year old i know) and wanna be able to relish in seeing my fave band ever that i tragically missed seeing in 2017.

Also call it wishful thinking but hopefully we’ll see Hardschool live by that time. Imagine if the American Tour was cancelled and we were the first country to see gnr live since March this year.

It depends on how packed the pit gets and if your unlucky if you have half a dozen people standing directly in front of you. However if you dont have that problem, you"ll be fine as the staging at least in Sydney was very high. I dont see this being a sell out tour, unless the band between now and then released new music.

I personally dont know whether the band can tour europe or US, dependibg how Covid goes,  which may mean Oz shows could be the litmus test for anything new. Glad to hear its your first concert!!!!!. Im sure the wait will be painful.

Mine was back in 93 when i was 18 at Eastern Creek raceway. The Melbourne show of that tour was legendry.

Mate I got 3 of the DST tickets yesterday for the MELB show in the pre sale and it said it was all sold out in 90 mins. Hopefully the saved some for when the general public tickets go on sale so you can snag one. 
 

Just seen a Matt Sorum post offering signed editions of the new GnR greatest hits LP. Thought it was a little weird as I don’t know the last time he really mentioned GnR for anything in the last decade. Could be a little sign he may be part of the new tour.

Not sure what the source for that pic is. I was going off of Ticketek, which is the official seller: https://m.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=GUNSNROS21&utm_source=&utm_medium=&utm_term=&utm_content=&utm_campaign=&USER_ID_=

Had a  laugh back in feb first sydney show. Had Paul Macgregor (ex st george dragons coach and nrl player) next to me shoving some people out of the way including some tall guy with a cowboy hat that was blocking both our views on the stage fence.

Im holding out on tickets this run though unless they announce touring new songs or appetite 5. Wont be paying to see a new lightshow and the same songs being done worse than 2017.

My thoughts exactly when it comes to any more dates. I had a good time seeing the NITL tour, but see zero excitement in spending a large amount of money to see the exact same thing but not nearly as good. 

It's something different or 'no thanks' from me, unless the ticket was free or close to it.

But ACDC is a band that cares about its fans and charges reasonable ticket prices. When I saw them in Germany in 2015 they charged 100€ for every ticket and didn‘t have any VIP tickets or early entrance or Golden Circle. Who got there early was lucky and we managed to get to the one of the first rows without spending a months income. Thats how every band/promoter should do it

You know the funny thing?. When i saw them skid row supported as part of their "slave to the grind" tour. Although gnr show was good and axl running around the stage heaps, the 1 hour slot skid row played for an hour, i personally think skid row upstaged GNR. Skid row seemed like a very hungry band, no lengthy solos just one song after another.

Hopefully the melbourne show goes off without a hitch next year.

Yeah I had Diamond Reserve standing for the two Sydney shows I flew down for in 2017. They were really good tickets, not too far from the stage and at $245 I might try to get it again for the Sydney show. 

I think this position of being just back a bit from the stage actually gives you the best sound experience, kind of an accoustic sweet spot.

Anyone think Gold Coast will sell out? Being so close to Brisbane I want to go to both but also watching the Covid situation in the USA in particular

Gold coast wont sell out. Not sure why they added it. Most fans would of just went to Brisbane if they wanted to go and alot of Brisbane fans will just wait for their own city instead of trecking it down.

Gold coast population is only 500 000.

I was at the Sydney show and that view was pretty universal at the time, both amongst people that went and in the local mags. 
 

Rose Tattoo were awesome that day as well.

Just got a email from ANZ stadium.

 

GNR's 2021 Australian tour is the light at the end of the bleak tunnel we’ve all negotiated this year. All aboard the Nightrain to Paradise City for what promises to be a heaving celebration of the unbreakable human spirit! 

LOL who comes up this stuff

Yep, Pearls and Swine i thought were ok. I had their first release on cassette.

It was a hot fuckin day, and i travelled 15 hours on a bus to see the show. Thats each way.

I have always thought the whole day must have been captured on film. Not by new crews but professional production team. It was considered to be one of the biggest tours in oz music history and an event like must have been recorded and filmed....

There was pro shot footage shown on a local news report of the show, so I was thinking there must be the full gig hiding somewhere...
