But you are living in god damn fantasyland if you think people don't download them.  How do you think fans were singing along with new songs on the 2002 and 2006 tours?  Lucky guesses??  In 2006, 'Better' and 'I.R.S' were on the radio for god's sake.  They entered airplay charts!

I'm aware, and I experienced it in 2006. But after that, it was a case of "this really isn't cool".... I understand wanting to hear something, I don't understand taking something that's not yours to share...

I also remember people choosing to listen to whatever they got and once the finished songs were released there were the usual "but I already heard this song" shit going on. Well, guess who made that decision?

I'd rather hear the songs the way they were intended to be heard before any alternative versions...

The earlier in the tour (aka mid July) the less optimistic I am.  But starting with the Fenway show (and, honestly, even the DC show to some extent) and going forward?    beer


Summerfest was already postponed until September by the festival themselves.

Well, if there is a pitfall, it's that.  But like you said, that's on me, the downloader.  No one to blame but me on that one.

I will say, in all instances but one, the finished version on the album was the superior version.  For me personally, for whatever reason, the 'Prostitute' leak still sounds better to me.  I don't get that (for lack of a better term) "crunchy sound" underneath the mix on the album.

They also got my money the first day it was released.  I beat them out of nothing.

Oh, I don't remember when it was stating. But it was supposed to be the start of the North American GN'R tour.


This is all a big puzzle to try to figure out. Different states will reopen at different times. Who knows if there'll be other restrictions, and in that case what they'll be....

Yeah. Most hardcore fans will buy it. But there's also those who heard it somewhere else and decides they're not gonna spend time/money on it. Maybe not so much an issue about buying a physical album these days, but about spending the time to listen to it on a streaming service etc.

You can only premiere something once...

Big hurdle toward herd immunity set to be....hurdled?...by early next week. 12 to 15 year olds will be approved for the Pfizer vax by the FDA.

I know those aren't the concert goers, esp for GnR, but this is all a numbers game.  We'll see what the adoption rate is like.....

I think you all might be a little surprised on what happens with the mid to late summer leg of the US tour.

We'll see.. Wink

I super duper desperately want to be wrong, believe me.

But the argument for such is not a terribly compelling one.  "Hey, you never know" could also suggest an alien invasion next summer.  Doesn't mean I start building a bunker.


Let me put it this way:

I worked in a venue for awhile in my youth.

I still have connections in that world.

I'm more than optimistic for people being pleasantly surprised.  I'm not 100%, but I'm at about 75%, especially for MetLife and Fenway.  Capacity might be questionable....as in they might not be full full shows so some might have their tickets cancelled.  But....well, lets just leave it at I'm optimistic. Wink

I don't think the Canadian show will happen, though.  

The earlier in the tour (aka mid July) the less optimistic I am.  But starting with the Fenway show (and, honestly, even the DC show to some extent) and going forward?    beer

We'll see what happens over the next few weeks or so.  Things could 100% change.  But today, I feel pretty good about those shows.



Speaking about MetLife and NJ, it was announced today that NJ will allow restaurants  and other indoor entities not to have any capacity limits as long as customers are six feet apart. Governor Murphy and Governor Cuomo will be deciding together on further increasing capacity for outdoor venues. I wouldn't be surprised if MetLife goes  with  no capacity limits by the end of this month.

I live in PA and things seem to be moving fast here too.

But...not so much on the actual city of Philly.  Philly's show got canceled, but that's not my point here.  The suburbs and whatnot seem to moving faster than the big cities.  And the city, of course, is where our stadiums are.  We just cracked allowing 10K in for Phillies games.

Is it the same in NJ?

For NJ, MetLife is our  largest stadium. Giants co-owner, Mara, has said that he's expecting full attendance by September. He said this last month.  In regards to lagging, it's really been Governor Murphy's call on things being open. There hasn't been much leeway for cities and suburbs to make the decision.  He worked with Governor Cuomo in NY to shutdown and reopen. I have to say they have been an effective team. We got hit hard here and they did a good job with managing it. The only thing is that both made mistakes with the nursing home.

That Megadeth tour starts in USA and ends in Canada.

Obviously some are thinking touring will return this summer. Fingers crossed.

Candlebox just announced a tour too for this summer. Yankees and mets are going to be very close to full capacity on the 19th. They will have vaccinated and unvaccinated sections. Vaccinated full capacity with masks. Unvaccinated will have to be 6 feet apart and masked. So those will be capped at 33%. Unvaccinated kids can sit in vaccinated sections with their parents. I think there will be way more vaccinated then unvaccinated people at the games. I would be shocked if the stadiums aren't close to capacity. Both will be offering the J&J shot at the stadium for unvaccinated in attendance. If you get the vaccine you get a free ticket.

The City of Boston (Mayor) has announced that they will trail the States lifting of restrictions on August 1st by 3 weeks until August 22nd, which should impact the Fenway Park Show... not sure what percentage it will be at that point, but it will not be 100%.
