Holy shit! Hell, that's less than I paid for parking at Six Flags!


My concert days are nearing the end. Not just my hearing issues(well, that's a big one and thanks Bucket for blowing my ears out in 2011 for days bucket ) but most of the artists/bands I like are getting really old and the performances suffer, my favorite singer killed himself so that one is off the table, I'm probably going to see GNR this year and that's going to be it for GNR, and there aren't many people left I'd even want to bother with. Plus I'm more interested in going to amusement parks I missed out on in my youth.

Example: Go see Buckingham/McVie whom I love and played practically next door or go to Six Flags? I went to SF.

Is he adding any Cali dates? For twenty bucks I'd see him one last time and like bri said, hardcore fans have always raved on the band tours.

Last night in Chicago he had a big technical issue and ended his show after an hour. Glad I didn't go.

I had just read about this incident on that last tour. What a clusterfuck. Just walked offstage and never came back.

I think he withdrew from touring and collaborating to care for his parents, he also had what most believe is back surgery. During this time he started releasing the pikes, probably while staying near home or at home.

Sadly situations like this can quickly lead to pain pill addiction.

With how eccentric he is though how would anyone notice the signs? 16

I've always had a fan boy dream that GN'R will tour with Axl, Slash, Duff & Dizzy (at the least), and Axl possibly with AC/DC. But when Axl gets time to tour solo... he and Bucket re-connect and do something together in the studio with Finck, Stinson, Brain & Pitman, but as 'Axl Rose' as a solo artist.


It COULD happen. Just a matter of if people want to do it. Bucket touring with Axl as a solo act, isn't GN'R, but it still would have to be awfully lucrative.

I wish Axl was ten years younger. With a lightning bolt from the rock gods, he rediscovered his prime and more importantly....the ambition and activity that existed in that prime. Is he releasing GNR albums now? No. But he's on a monster tour not seen since the UYI tour, he just fronted one of the biggest rock bands in history and may do so again, he shows up at Billy Joel concerts singing Big Shot, the world is in love with him again.  I know fans are frustrated by no new GNR music but his comeback is incredible. Only Axl Rose could have such a comeback.

The sand in the hourglass is unfortunately fading. At best he can be at this high level for five years unless he can pull a Jagger/McCartney and still kick ass at 70..which gives him almost 20 years.

Shows are great. Millions of fans eating it up. That voice needs to be recorded on tape. Yes...you kick ass on Jungle....PC....NR...etc....even do your Soundgarden tribute pretty damn good....you kick ass on Thunderstruck and Big Shot....but please get your voice on tape before its too late. Even if its just to go the Rod Stewart/Michael McDonald route of doing cover songs for a chunk of your career.

reason I say I wish he was 10 years younger is the type of collaborations you mention(with Bucket) would be much more realistic.

I assume he'll add dates all over. These tours usually go through a fall/spring phase and he hits the big cities. I would love to see him with Brain again.
