Summer stadium tour is happening. Has to mean a new album as they last only did arenas. Also, no opening bands announced yet, though GNR always has the best openers.

Figures I'm on vacation the week they are here.

I saw NITL twice, so now I selfishly don't want a new album.  Somehow, I think I'm safe.

That said, absent the vacay conflict, I would be there.  Even for the same old show.

Europe and North America is marketed as "The Next Chapter".

In regards to new music it sounds promising imo.

Hopefully I can get Pit tix for the Seattle show.  My best bet would be Citi presale.. from past experiences.. hopefully Nightrain has some.

In a normal thinking world, yes

But considering they are starting the tour in a month and forgot how to record an album - not holding my breath for anything other another tour

Question: I'm definitely going to the Indy show (only an hour from my house AND the triumphant return of Axl/Slash/Duff together to Indiana). I haven't bought any tix since the early NITL show in Nashville, so I'm not sure what the best option is for good seats. Does the Nightrain presale seem to be offering the best seats at different price levels, or is it better to wait for the general public sale?

I've been waiting on GN'R in Indiana ever since I missed Noblesville in '91!

PS--I once published a short story about a fictionalized version of that '91 concert, if anyone's interested:

I donít know how they can do another stadium tour. Bobby Dodd is huge when you take into account the floor seating they will create. They had dropped to arenas on the last go around. They also announced this way late with people spending money on the Crue/Leppard tour. Maybe they really are putting out a new album.

Iím in Tennessee and also looking at that show since itís a Friday and the Atlanta show is in the middle of the week. I suspect theyíll have a pit in the front and then chairs on the stadium floor like their other shows.

Love the band and all that but I am hesitant to shell out hundreds of dollars to hear the same show and same songs. Tix go on sale this week so it's really a leap of faith--you have to buy tix and hope there is new music. But if you buy now there might not be. Quite the dilemma.

Either a new album or Izzy is back on board other than that they will struggle to sell these stadium gigs.

They will absolutely struggle to sell these dates. A new album announcement would have re-branded things in a real way, not these coy "THE NEXT CHAPTER" "LARGER THAN LIFE" taglines that are essentially just a bunch of hot air that don't mean a thing.

There is the challenge crystallized and I suspect many others will debate the same exact thing.

Lol ...

The amount of people who wonít go because Izzy is not there totals about 14.

I love reading the complaints about new tour dates...


Iím a New Yorker but I think Iím going to go to Fenway for this ... just sounds so cool to say seeing Guns Ní Roses at Fenway Park.

Doubtful,the large crowds that go to these stadium shows skew way more to casual fans than diehards on message boards.  They  take bathroom breaks during songs they donít know and have no idea who Izzy Stradlin is. They donít care about new music.  

The NITL tour was the third highest grossing tour in history, how are we still talking about Izzyís drawing power?  Is there even one person on this board who skipped the last tour because Izzy wasnít there ?

I don't think they'll sell out but promoters have obviously decided that they'll sell enough tickets to turn a profit.  That being said, they are going to eventually find the saturation point for this.  A new album won't make that much difference either.  Show me one band from the 80's or 90's where crowds are filling up stadiums to hear shit from the new album.

I'm excited...and truly bummed.

They are in the Northeast (Metlife and Fenway) the week I'm supposed to be in Colorado.  I'm flying out of JFK the day before they play Metlife.

Ah well.....maybe I can convince my wife we need to head down to Philly in early July.....

I share these sentiments about Izzy's supposed affect on ticket sales.  We heard that same shit about Adler.  We were all at those shows.  How may folks did any of you talk to about Izzy Stradlin or Steven Adler?

Can they sell stadiums out this time around?  Dunno.  But it should not be lost on folks that they are only in major cities.  Philly, Chicago, NY/NJ, Boston.  Lot of folks there.

Also, all bands do internal research.  My guess is the the numbers all but guarantee that they can draw more than arena sized crowds.  Perhaps 100% capacity stadiums, but enough extra seats that they would be leaving money on the table if they stuck to arenas.
