  Yeah I had the same problem! I just don't think they released many tix for the pre-sale. I'm going to wait and try again tommorow. I was able to get kick ass tix for Everett though. The same shit is happening with the Calgary show as well.

Got in on the pre-sale this morning.. skipped 20 minutes of my first class but managed to snap up a floor ticket.  Went through ticketmaster again and got 3 more seats for my brother and his friends. 

A little pricey for this current reincarnation of Guns, but it will be no doubt worth it after hearing some of those classic tunes.  These songs need to be played in arenas.  Axl will blow everyone away.

And I predict that it will be at near sellout capacity.   Edmonton, and Alberta in general, has been neglected for a long time.  The economy is booming and young people got money to spend on shows.  A band like Guns N Roses will be a hot ticket around here.

Does anyone know who the support will be?  I've read that Sebastian Boch will be opening.  But who is the 2nd band on the bill?  Please don't tell me its going to be Papa Roach...

Waited in line here in Edmonton for tickets for Calgary and Winterpeg.  Got great seats for both, sec 100 dead center 10 to 5 rows up.   It is 1140 am here in edmonton, still some floor seats left, but hardly anything else.  Defently going to be a sell out.

Anyone else going to Winterpeg, Calgary and Edmonton?

Has anyone tried to purchase tickets through Gunsnroses.com lately?  They have removed the link to Tickets.com recently and added a link to Ticketmaster.  I was able to purchase floor tix yesterday for the show which is friggin' awesome.  Anyone setting up a meeting pre-show for drinks?

 I tried Tickets.com last week. What a fuckin joke! I actually called them and they claim that they are not selling tix to ANY Canadian dates! I'm glad more floor tix came avaiable last night as I got my tix for Calgary ( was abel to get Edmonton tix last week). I hope people didn't get burned with tickets.com because they seem real sketchy. Great to hear everything is working out for everyone! Not where the fuck is the pre-party in Edmonton!!!!

Has anyone been able to get their hands on good tix in the stands.  I found floor tix on TM but gave them to my bro- plus I would rather be in the stands anyway.  Tell me if you have had any luck or if you have some for sale.

I have been to quite a few shows at Rexall.  Ozzy, Aerosmith, Velvet Revolver, Judas Priest, and System of a Down twice... just to name a few.  And it is my experiance that Rexall ALWAYS pats down at the door.  I have never experianced any kind of walk-through metal detectors though.  As for a wand, I can imagine them probably using one but I can't remember.

Give it time man.  You'll probably get those tickets in the mail in early-mid November.  I went to the Rolling Stones on October 6th and I got my ticket from ticketmaster around the 28th or so of August.  That's about a month and a week before hand.  The Edmonton show is on the 7th of December so... do the math.   yes

I prefer to pick my tickets up at the box office, simple transaction... then you got em.  No worries.

are there any plans for a meetup before the show?  It seems as though several board members want to go.  I'm not familiar with the venue or what is around it.  maybe someone who is familiar can make some recommendations?

Look what they've done for november 8th  Grin

A hoy hoy gang,

I was just wondering if people plan on meeting somewhere b/f the show for a few drinks.  Even if we meet at the university and then catch the train to Rexall would be cool too. Seeing as how there isn't really any bars around Rexall. I'm fine with the hotel bar as well, but we should plan something.

Also, what time do people plan on going to the show? I just checked the weather network and it's going to be actually nice that day. Minus 3 and sunny, but could or should I say "will" change.

Rippin' up Roses

Axl delivers after long wait for fans

Guns N' Roses named its tour after an album that's, so far, just a rumour.

So, some added pre-show drama and attention seemed only natural. A press release this week promised a late start for Thursday's Chinese Democracy tour stop at Rexall Place. And considering the manic and dramatic ways of frontman Axl Rose, we're lucky he showed up at all.

The only original member of the band won't give the world his new record, but he still knows how to entertain, pulling all the stops with grand pianos, pyrotechnics and plenty of praise for Edmonton.

Rose appeared to a restless arena at 11:55 p.m., an hour after Skid Row's ex-frontman Sebastian Bach left the stage.

The long break saw 15,000 fans split into two camps - bored senseless or completely inebriated.

Eventually, the lights went out and Rexall Place exploded with cheers, almost drowning out the tribal bass beat and echoing guitar riffs belonging to just one song - Welcome to the Jungle.

Surrounded by an Asian motif, Rose materialized in large, dark shades and a black leather button-up shirt, the first of six diva-like wardrobe changes during the two-and-a-half-hour set.

All appearances spoke to the advent of a new era for the band - Rose's new, yet questionable hairdo, GN'R lineup and Asian obsession. Yet an inescapable musical tether leads back almost two decades to a time before some of Thursday night's audience members even existed.

GN'R's debut album, Appetite for Destruction, has sold more than 20 million copies since its 1987 release and is solidified in rock history as the best-selling debut of all time. It's also the source for the band's most popular and recognizable songs and Rose skimped on none.

Interspersed by numerous guitar solos, Live and Let Die, Sweet Child O' Mine, It's So Easy, Out Ta Get Me and Nighttrain all appeared, with Paradise City as a closing finale to a well-planned encore. Other decade-plus hits delivered were November Rain, Bob Dylan's Knockin' on Heaven's Door and the lighter-triggering Patience.

GN'R's simultaneous 1991 followups Use Your Illusion I & II were the group's last original studio recordings. Since then, Rose has been working on Chinese Democracy, with a reported $15-million production price tag. Rumoured to arrive soon, the release date has again been pushed to next year, but Rose proved new music does exist. Three confirmed tracks on the album were performed as well as the title track, which kicked off the 2:15 a.m. encore.

People were slowly filtering out all evening, some even before GN'R hit the stage. But most stayed to at least determine one last rumour about Rose's on-stage guests for the show. And again, the rumours were true.

Following a duet with opening act Bach, Rose introduced his new pal, Mike Smith, known to most as Bubbles from the Trailer Park Boys. A musician before he was an actor, Smith and his guitar took centre-stage for his new, catchy hit, Liquor and Whores, and most of the arena joined in.

Rose didn't spare a drop of drama for his departure, exploding tissue rose petals with air cannons over the crowd as he lingered in the atmosphere he obviously loves so much.

Edmonton Journal Review:


This was deleted off the 'main' board. Most likely because, "GASP!"... its not a glowing review. Anyways, I know it is appreciated so I'll try in the 'proper' place.

The best place to hide a camera is by your waist and wear a belt with a decent sized buckle.  That's how I got my digital camera in to the Stones show in Regina this year.
