Summer North America cancelled/postponed again?


Recommended Posts

With Summerfest postponed to September, DC is looking like it could be start of tour.

It was just announced that capacity at Nats Park (venue), could go up immediately to 25% for baseball. Obviously there are some differences for concerts, but they could easily add seating to GA if necessary. All that to say; the needle continues to move slowly towards this NA tour being feasible....but there’s still a long way to go.

Grew up in a rural area. No one ever got shot or killed.  The reason? Guns aren't available in my country.  The 'I've got to have a gun because other people might have a gun' situation is ab

Agree we are racing against the clock on our rock bands. Your Biden comment is completely off the mark. Yikes!  Thank God we have a chance to go back to normal (or something closer to it) and the unqu

Anyone who believes the virus is not real and deadly is a fucking moron. Endangering others because, you know, ‘Murica, is the sign of a truly despicable and selfish person.

Much safer bet you could be money down with flights etc if shows don't happen 

Don't know if I am naive, optimistic or realistic but I do believe Summer/Fall'21 will kill Covid-19.
(But it won't be the first time I was wrong regarding the damn virus)

Too bad GNR have no manager to give fans an update on the outlook for the NA tour. Would really come in handy.

Can you imagine though what would happen the first time Paradise City wasn't the last song played?  I'm sure there's more than just me that like to skate out while the last song is in progress to beat the traffic (1 minute vs 60+ to get out).   It would be a mega bummer to miss the majority of the show.

I’ve been forced to leave GNR early in 2006 at MSG because I had to catch the train back home and sucked to miss the part of the concert.

It would be nice to be provided with any details about live performances this summer, but I think everything is up in the air and nobody really knows. Isn’t GNR the only huge act to even have live dates for this summer?

50.000 tickets available so no need for pre sale I think.

Groningen sold out within 24 hours, covid makes people desperate it seems lol :blink:

This venue is like a 10 minute walk from my home but I'm not forking over any money to this band untill I hear some new music.

Doubt that it sold out already. They probably didn’t release all of the tickets at once and will release more later on

Pretty much. If they wait a year they risk being overwhelmed by all the other acts.

Best case, when the band re-emerges for live performances, they have Brain back to replace Frank, and add Buckethead back as one of the lead guitarists.

And, the cherry on top, Axl is in shape and has his 2006 hair back. :D

He had a point about Axl’s appearance. Would be cool to see Axl go out in top shape with a new wig.

Best case scenario with this band would be to see them return with Brain back to replace Frank on drums, and add Buckethead back as one of the lead guitarists.

And it's right back to theaters for the 5 of you, who want to see that.

Those with a taste for the finer things in life would prefer such a thing.

Christ Stapleton just announced a wave of new and rescheduled shows. Interestingly these include a July 30th date in New Hampshire at a large pavilion as well as a slew in August across the country.

These are LiveNation shows. Of course they can be rescheduled, but I think it’s a good sign.

Thank you for the update.

NYC is going to host the Frieze art fair next month and tribeca film festival. I think the odds of the GnR show at MetLife stadium in early August are pretty good

Most people I know now have gotten their first vaccine shot.

I've been thinking that since Governor Murphy raised attendance to 30% at the end of March for outdoor venues. He has now hinted at further reopenings. Hospitalizations are going down. More people are being vaccinated. My childhood friend and I are  fully vaccinated. I also know that some of my cohorts in the part time MBA program at Montclair State  are also fully vaccinated.

I can definitely see this happening at MetLife Stadium.

Agree. Just got an email for Jon Bon Jovi storytellers in Miami in June. Limited attendance. But interesting that he’s doing that

Better for him to tell a story than to actually sing. :lol: Yeah. I know, a GNR fan shouldn't talk, but I feel he's even worse nowaday.
