That’s Noel singing and playing guitar. Liam is the one sat doing nothing.

Much more in to Oasis than I was when this thread was first posted. With that said I never really got the fuss over Wonderwall. Wouldn’t even make it in my Oasis top 20.

Noels solo stuff has gone in a bit of weird direction but Liams new stuff is pretty good.

Statistics are largely meaningless at this point. The only one you can take as near enough accurate is deaths. Number of infected is entirely down to how each country is testing. It will only be clearer in the months to come exactly how well each country really managed the situation.

Germany is an interesting one as even they are puzzled that number of deaths is so low. They have the highest number of critical care beds which will help. They also think the virus was brought in by people who’d been skiing in Italy, therefore it spread among an on average younger crowd in the first days and weeks.

This is good - stats are great when they are complete; they aren't so useful when incomplete...that's where they are used to spread fear or to influence things with inaccurate information.

They can be used to make any point you like at this stage because there are such variables. One day we will know the true extent but it may take months or years.

That’s not to say this isn’t a huge problem though. It’s the sheer numbers descending on the healthcare systems that’s concerning. Once the critical care beds are all full and the ventilators taken even the best hospitals will struggle to offer the same level of care to someone who needs it. That is when the deaths mount up unnecessarily and there is then a knock on effect as all other areas of healthcare virtually shutdown to help.

No, US is now highest number of confirmed cases. Most deaths is still Italy by some distance.

Hope everyone is doing ok and getting through this. I fear we are in for some tough times.

Reality is starting to bite in the UK I think, this will be a long haul.

I speak with hospital Dr's as part of my day to day job and they are worried, plans are in place to turn canteens in to make shift wards when the worst of it hits. Sort of feel like we're sat in the path of a hurricane just waiting. The UK's trajectory is currently a worse curve than Italy's at the same point, we are just around 2-3 weeks behind them.

I think it's very hard to not see some of these measures as an over reaction until the worst hits and then people will wish more was done. I saw an interview with someone a couple of days ago who said the issue is wherever you think you are with a situation like this you are always 7-10 days behind where you actually are. Therefore you need to over react just to have a chance of being in step with it.

Have a feeling this could be a 12-18 month process of waves of this that get slowed then when people return to normal it builds again. I fear that a peaks and troughs curve will continue until a good vaccine is rolled out.

I don't know.

I think bands are only allowed to play acoustic sets on the 24th, so it would have to be 26th June, and that would be hard logistically because they will have to ship all the equipment over to Ireland on 26th.

The main friday headline slot (26th) is still to be announced, so if they are playing it would be then. Logistics would be challenging but surely there’s much less needed to ship to a festival than their own show? Stage etc could be shipped from Scotland straight to Ireland. It would only need to be the essentials sent down to Glastonbury?

I might be way off and it would mean 3 big shows on 3 consecutive nights for the band.

I’d be surprised if there hadn’t been talks as Glasto are running out of major acts that haven’t headlined before. GNR ticks all the boxes.

London on the 29th May. A Friday again, they did this last time then added a Saturday date. Might hold out and see if they do that again, also depends if it’s another NITL circuit or it’s promoting something new.

It looks like it'll be the only date in the UK.

https://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/2 … w-stadium/

The event will mark the first live music concert to be staged at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since the venue opened in April this year and will be the only date on which the band will be performing their enormous and beloved catalogue of hits in the UK.

lol, I'll believe it when I see it. They've left a big gaping hole in their schedule for a second date.

The Saturday got added straight away 16

Tickets booked, new album or not should be a good evening.

#9 Re: Guns N' Roses » It's happening. » 16 weeks ago

The usual format for an artist these days seems to be first single and promo, album and second single then tour. Doesn’t have to be this way of course but that’s the usual formula. The fact the tour seems to start in only a few months and there’s nothing so far new material wise is a bit of a concern. Maybe they’ll release it whilst on the road uyi style?

I hadn’t really expected anything at this point and was thinking maybe end of 2020 for new music anyway but as they’re on the road for most of the year it means they probably need an album basically complete by spring?

Live Nation care about 1 thing, Ticket Sales

There is a new album, and the tour March onwards is a new tour.

It is badly advertised, I was hoping for better, but it is what it is.

The Miami concert is an outlier, I am assuming this is when the first new track is set to appear, I don't know., but it all appears to be well planned.

What are the chances of a headline slot at Glastonbury?
