So it does look like GN'R will play both weekends. Kinda like Coachella in 2016.

Large crowds, perfect to introduce a new song for a new era of GNR, imo.  And while I'm at it, there's something wrong about 4, odd numbers are better, we need a 5th show even if it's a small club.  Cheesy

Seems like GNR is by far the heaviest band on the bill. I wonder what the crowd will be like.

No, no and no. We have spent decades and thousands following the band. We must get the new music first and not in some festival where most are random people peace

One of the weekends is usually aired on PBS.

Would make sense since there's already a show for the second Sunday in TN. Plus you have to travel there.....

Do you think we are getting more dates or that's it? maybe a weekend in NYC or a date in Houston/Dallas between the Austin dates?

Hell yeah!! I can't wait. I'm going both weekends and this will be the easiest trip to I've ever made to see them, since 93. I live in Austin, don't really care for ACL but i'm all over it this year.

I think this is it.  It's too costly to get out all their stage stuff and activate a full crew for a few single shows.  Unless there is some more festivals and I didn't see any I thought would work, this is it.

Good news though, if they want to keep that crew and not pay to store all that stuff, they're probably working on a world tour.  Little road rats that they are, we'll all get to see them.  Cheesy

It has been awhile since Ive seen an article on GNR this bad.  Only thing I got out of it was the history of the band as seen thru the eyes of a pretentious hack "journalist" 



Why Are We Still Rewarding Guns N' Roses in 2019?

This year’s Austin City Limits festival has announced its 2019 line-up, and for the most part, the roster is solid. The Cure, fresh off their induction into both the Rock & Roll and Shady Bitch Halls of Fame. Billie Eilish, the filthy possessed child from every American horror movie of the last 15 years. Cardi B on weekend one and Robyn on weekend two. Kacey Musgraves and Lizzo in the smaller print on the poster, because the world seems intent on undervaluing American royalty.

And because 2019 is garbage, the festival will be headlined by Guns N’ Roses, who are the worst, and you know it.


Read on if you want, it goes downhill from here......https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/music/a27324259/why-is-guns-n-roses-headlining-austin-city-limits-2019/?utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflowFBESQ&utm_medium=social-media&fbclid=IwAR2YowYCWceiNoqsmHff7r-vLTMvQHkJ2emKVWZvc5ndK1Rq2diIRNWxvG8

“Who is a Replacements fan just like me.”  I happen to have been in college during the AFD time period. It just so happens that 3 of my all time favorite records were released in 1987-AFD, Pleased To Meet Me by The Replacements, and Joshua Tree by U2. There was no love lost between the fan bases.

Disclaimer: I don't agree with the article!

Having said that.....don't you think we're saying it's terrible just because we don't agree with it? Critics should be free to say things like this. It's not badly written, by someone too young to remember what GNR were all about; he was there, he's expressing his opinion. It's reasonably witty in places and he seems informed. It's not an ignorant hack-job.

It's a modern phenomenum to deride any opinion other than ones own. It's ok to have different opinions. It doesn't make you a bad writer.

No, because we can read and it's a shitty article with errors in it written just to get a reaction....  Cheesy


Quote
GNR burst onto the scene in 1987, and were ridiculous from the jump.

Then he goes on to point out how ridiculous the opening of the Jungle video is.
Now, I can respect that opinion, while disagreeing. But if that's an issue.... Jeez!


So to answer the question in the article's headline. Because there's no one else like them. No matter how much you hate the band, how much you claim to be a hipster who only likes bands that no one else listens to, the fact remains that GN'R has released some of the most iconic songs of all time, and people wanna see the band!

Oh it absolutely is written to get a reaction....but aren't we giving it what it wants if we do anything other than shrug our shoulders at it?

I feel a bit like people get so angry if people think differently to them now, that they can't even tolerate those thoughts existing. It's an opinion thing- I'm fine if this guy doesn't like GNR. I may qell not like a lot of the stuff he does!

I mean, goodness knows why I'm sort-of defending this article! Playing devil's advocate a bit I think, as people's reactions to it seem worryingly extreme.
