I was at House of Blues right smack in the middle and I didnt see anyone with a camera, I dont know man, security was pretty tight, but you never know. 

Best show ever.  Every GnR show should take place after 3 AM.

I was so fuckin high I was completely engulfed in the show, so yeah, there is a good possibility I missed you.  That was one hell of a fuckin night, If the bootleg captured half of the the magic of that night, then you owe it to GnR fans to put it out. I never felt a vibe at a concert like the one from that night.

Well, I talked to the guy. He gave me his address and all his info, but he charges $25 a dvd Roll Eyes maybe a couple of people could pool together and buy one, see if it's legit, and mattbober said he'd make copies for free. if he's a fraud, we could report him  Grin

the comeback of Axl, they played Rhiad, would be awesome to see them in a smaller venue too!
plus it was before Axl started sporting his gangster outfit.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its

I wanted to add...has anyone asked him to send screenshots?? That's basically the only way to make sure this is for real. It takes 10 seconds with PowerDVD and Photoshop to make some screenshots. I see he has a webspace so he can host them. I contacted him and if he replies I will ask him for screenshots.

people, he needs to prove it with samples/screenshots whatever. otherwise he will make some $$$ easily without returning anything cause you jumped on this too fast.
you've realized he has a very small list but 3 very rare videos including new source HOB amateur shot a "new" one aswell ?? stay cool and dont buy it before there are proofs for their existance IMO.

He may just have it on video tape though, since there are no mentions of DVDs on that page. It would be a little more difficult to get screen shots then Undecided

No he said to someone else he could burn that on DVDs, which means he can get screenshots. Worst case scenario, at least someone he knows has got a digital camera and can take a snapshot of the TV or whatever.

I got the same answer everyone else did, but I asked directly for screenshots. I asked for details on the source for Pukkelpop (gen., complete or not, etc.) and he didn't say anything. I will let you know what his next reply will be.

this guy is bullshit!! who the fuck is he!! none of us have heard of him before!!

saying he has Toronto & Pukkelpop screener gives the game away straight away!! only 1 person owns Toronto right now & he hasn't spread it yet and the guy hosting that site is not him!!

Pukkelpop has not even been confirmed as being a complete show!!!

HOB exists only as proshot which the Japs have in archive!

Theres no fucking way someone could have audience shot that show!! if sercurity didn't catch them Axl sure as shit would have!!

I'm not judging anyone unless he can't deliver screenshots within the next couple of days. I have the same doubts as everyone else but I'm like Mulder, I WANT TO BELIEVE... Grin

If by thursday we don't have any legit DVD screenshot (that'd be pretty easy to find out if they're legit or not), I think we can officially say it's a scam.

I got a reply for a trade. I offered a couple of DVDs for the HOB DVD. He just copied and pasted his selections and said "I want these"..

I asked if its genuine.. no response yet.

My initial feeling is that this is a scam..

I emailed this guy too, and he basically told me two things:
1) He doesn't know how to make screenshots.
2) He only trades by mail.

Sounds a bit fishy, but you never know...

I really can't believe so many people are really falling for this!

i mean surely if the guy had HOB he'd be advertising more than just the 2002 shows on his list seriously! I've been trading GNR since 93 & i've never heard of this clown!

If this is bullshit (which i'm 99% certain it is) I suggest we all go around independent_scott's place & give him a seriously major kicking for blaggin everyone!  rant

I don't understand why you're saying "so many people are really falling for this". If you read the thread cautiously, everybody's having doubts about the authenticity of this "DVD". I only believe what I can see so if I get screenshots I will believe him. Otherwise no. We all already know the reasons why this is likely a scam. If you don't hear anything before the end of the day, this is obviously BS, and we should make sure he removes these videos from his list and his site. I just hope no one has sent money yet.

Just sent this guy an email. Included within this email is this address: http://www.any-capture.com/. There is a free trial version of their capture software. I told him to download it and take a screenshot. If he doesnt provide us with any images then i think it is safe to assume that this thread can be closed off.

The guy stopped replying to my emails since I sent him a detailed email on how he can make and send captures via email. This was almost 24 hours ago.

I will close this topic for now as this is obviously a scam. The thread will be re-opened in case he can send any proof to anyone allowing us to find out it's legit.
