|Oh brother, where art thou, Guns N' Roses fans?
Perhaps fans of the onetime kings of rock and roll are finally fed up with waiting around for the forever-forthcoming new album, Chinese Democracy, as the band's New Year's Eve show (allstar, Dec. 4) in Las Vegas has still not yet sold out as of early Monday (Dec. 10) afternoon.
The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino only holds 1,400 people, so how the show has not sold out since its on-sale date of Saturday (Dec. 8) is anybody's guess. But high ticket prices (some well over $200) and a general malaise toward the band these days are surely factors.
The band's Dec. 29 show also didn't sell quite as fast as expected, either. It's sold-out, but tickets were still available as late as Saturday evening. We're sure Axl must be reeling. (Last year's New Year's Eve show in Vegas sold out in minutes, btw.)
