What was the up close and personal tour?. I cant remember this.

This would be an appropriate name for a tour in 2027 when they start their Vegas residency shows.

They could be like the Eagles and charge front row ticket holders 1500 for tickets which includes a sitdown meal down the front before the show starts. No meet and greets.

Promote the Vegas residency like an Eagles show but get an Elton John show instead.

 

I think they could only pull that off if they had an actual hook, like reuniting the AFD 5. 

 

The vast majority don't know the difference between Izzy and Richard Fortus, but if we are talking about a tour meant to extort the hardcores, they need something to differentiate it from the last 8 years.

 

My idea would be that they re-record UYI using the original band and production team from AFD. Scale it back to a 60 minute 6 piece album (AFD technically has 3 guitars). Call it 'Use Your Illusion 5', which is a fun play on words because the original albums were numbered, and this is UYI of the AFD 5 recorded it in a way like Appetite. 

 

They could reuse Axl's vocals. If you listen to AFD his vocals have no compression and are very raw, so unless they have the untouched performances, it might be difficult to get them to sound like AFD. Otherwise they could rerecord the performances. 

 

Then they do a small run of shows promoted as the final time the AFD 5 will play together. Do it in smaller venues with ridiculous ticket prices all im the Brazilian Peso so that they can profit from the exchange rate. 

 

Also, Axl can do Joe Rogan.

I could see them doing a digital only release of cd demos at some point. Probably won't be until they retire.

Josh Freese, on his deathbed in 30 years, receives two envelopes in the mail containing two separate checks:

 

Check 1 - Chinese Democracy (drums up 1 db) - $0.02

Check 2 - Chinese Democracy (drums up 2 db) - $0.04

It's over. GNR was always going to end in rape allegations and unreleased material.

Everyone should be glad they're not touring.

 

They actually might put together a new show next time. 

You mean whole new show. 
 

They bring back Think About You and The Godfather solo for a spaghetti eating competition on stage.

You forgetting they only have 4.5 Albums of actual material, and they play 3.5 hour shows.

 

The only way to do what could be considered a "New" show would be to dig up the songs they haven't played since reunion.

And then play only those in a 55 minute set. 

To do this it would have to include

"One In A Million",

(Mansons) "Look at Your Game Girl",

and of course

"Cornshucker" 🌽

🤖 ( bahaha) 

 

I would pay

to see this show 💰

Since it would be their last as Cancel Culture would finally come for GN'R 💥

They have too many hits and classics to release new material. 
 

They could still play Breakdown and Bad Apples for a tour and do a cover of Eye of the Tiger for the real fans.

The next 'all new show' will be another Vegas residency, but at the sphere. The company that makes their awful screen videos, and The General video, is trying to add AI into the show (seriously). It will be the most gloriously shit thing they've ever done.

GNR is way too cheap to rent The Sphere. Casinos provide the band with free space and guaranteed money regardless of attendance.

 

NewGNR didn't play a non-casino or non-festival date until Fall 2002 when their label ate the costs.

Apparently it's booked. It's not surprising - market it like it's an AFD5 residency, 40 Years Of Destruction or whatever, something about 'all new mind blowing interactive AI technology'... the novelty of the sphere and the Vegas market means they'll sell enough $5000 super deluxe VIP tickets to make it work. They don't quite need to go back to casinos yet but the sphere seems likely.

Add " up close and personal" again and its an Elvis 77 Vegas show.

We all know the one, singular thing GNR could do at the sphere that wouldn't be shit

 

Too bad Fernando is a fucking coward

 

I know he'd find it funny too

Out of curiosity I watched a NITL select video of them playing Chinese Democracy- what the fuck Slash?

 

I've heard you guys mention how he just aimlessly wanks on the CD stuff, I guess I just care so little for this shit show these days I've never really taken the time to watch/listen...well, I remember how they reworked Better but I guess that's it.

 

Anyway, I was truly astounded by how off the mark Slash is here

It's like Slash is trying to do an

impression of Bucket who was doing an impression of Slash in the first place. 
 

Slash should just get his Les Paul and play Chi Dem like Slash would play it. Think Jungle in reverse played a little faster.
