  1. Christ that's pricey! Can't say I'm surprised though, they were charging £125 for the best seats in 2006 and given the sudden surge in concert ticket prices I expected a much bigger price than the '06 price. No way I could justify spending £300+ on a concert ticket, no one's that good. And if that's "and up" then £300+ for nosebleed seats is crazy. Surprised people would buy them at that price.
  2. Some shows in the autumn apparently: http://www.nme.com/news/the-rolling-stones/64919 If Bill Wyman's back in the fold I'd really be tempted to go, the only thing is the price. Back when I saw them in Twickenham in 2006 the ticket I got was £90, given the recent surge in the price of concert tickets I dread to think how much they'll cost now. They always do put on a killer show though and it was definitely money well spent in 2006.
  3. Personally I thought Chinese Democracy was worthwhile. I also highly doubt McKagan will rejoin GN'R full time especially as Velvet Revolver are indeed searching for a new singer.
  4. There are a couple on YouTube I think. I wonder if he'll be onstage at Birmingham as well? I can but hope! I doubt it as it seemed like a spur of the moment thing.
  5. Duff McKagan Reunites With Axl Rose Onstage McKagan plays with Guns N’ Roses for the first time seventeen years Duff McKagan joined Axl Rose onstage for the first time in seventeen years tonight, playing bass on (at least) "You Could Be Mine" and "Knockin' On Heavens Door" at London's 02 Arena. (The band confirmed this [on Twitter https://twitter.com/gunsnroses].) Rumors of a full-fledged Guns N’ Roses reunion are sure to come, but Rose has made it abundantly clear that he will never share a stage with Slash again. "One of the two of us will die before a reunion," Rose told Billboard in 2009. "However sad, ugly or unfortunate anyone views it, it is how it is." Axl did play with original GNR rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin at a number of shows in 2006. "I could see doing a song or so on the side with Izzy or having him out [on tour] again," Rose said in 2009. "I'm not so comfortable with doing anything having more than one of the alumni. Maybe something with Duff [McKagan], but that's it." Last year McKagan told Rolling Stone that he's also open to the idea of working with Rose again. "I'm not going to be one of those guys who's like 'fuck that, that'll never happen.' he said. "It could very well happen. I love Axl. We've been through a lot of shit together that nobody can take that away from us." McKagan joined Jane's Addiction this year, only to split with the group in September over musical differences. Earlier this week, Slash announced on his MySpace page that Velvet Revolver is auditioning new singers. "It's great to hook up with Duff, Matt & Dave after all this time," Slash wrote. "I'll keep you posted on any interesting developments from those sessions as they happen. The creative juices are definitely flowing. I'm positive something awesome is going to surface soon."

  6. I was at Reading a couple of weeks ago and it was a truly amazing show (even if we didn't get the last two songs due to the power being cut). I'd say that Axl and co do definitely put on one of the greatest live shows around. Definitely as good as Slash's solo shows if not better in some respects. I read about the train wreck that was the Dublin show. Whilst it is to be expected that Guns won't take to the stage until around 22:30 at the latest its not necessarily acceptable. At the end of the day people need to get buses and trains back home and these usually stop around midnight. So obviously a show that starts at 22:30 will finish at 00:30 at the earliest and therefore you're kind of screwed. Bottle throwing isn't acceptable in any shape or form but then neither is punishing an entire audience made up of thousands for the actions of two people. Axl could have came back out and given the fans a great show. Instead he deliberately gave them a half arsed performance they paid good money to see by which time no doubt after the 'break' the idiots who threw the bottles had left therefore the only people he as punishing were his fanbase. As a huge GN'R fan and supporter of Axl's musical endeavours it saddened me to read about his behaviour at the Dublin show, especially after they took Reading by storm. I hope the Birmingham show in October isn't like the Dublin show...
  7. 1. Led Zeppelin 2. Guns N' Roses 3. Pink Floyd 4. The Smashing Pumpkins 5. Marillion
  8. Well I doubt I'll get to see this as it looks like a US only tour , that said hopefully will definitely catch Black Country Communion if/when there's a tour. I think this Led Zeppelin Experience tour will be great, the tribute CD Jason did called In The Name Of My Father was awsome.
  9. Got my ticket for Birmingham :D Two Robert Plant shows and two GN'R shows in a year!
  10. Thought I'd add this news. A UK Tour has been announced for October. O2 Arena in London: October 13, Birmingham LG Arena: October 17 Manchester MEN Arena: October 18. Presale is tomorrow (planetrock.com) General on sale through Ticketmaster Friday. A bit annoyed at the lack of the Cardiff date and the fact that London is mid week so it looks as if I'll be going to the Birmingham one and staying in a hostel overnight and an early train back to get back to university on Monday.
  11. Grateful Dead- Rocking The Cradle. A live DVD/CD of their '78 performance in Egypt. Checked out a couple of tracks on the DVD and sounds great. Will watch the whole thing later when its dark.
  12. Coverdale/Page is up there in my list of all time great rock albums. It's criminally underrated, I love it to bits. Jimmy's playing is brilliant on it. Shame they only ever made one album. Some of the songs are easily as good as Zeppelin.
  13. If you have any local record fairs they may sell boots. It's at a record fair I picked up the Earls Court show DVD. Also, if you live near London check out Camden Market.
  14. I got my first bootleg the other day, Earls Court '75, 24th May DVD. I usually download the CDs but downloading DVDs can be a pain as they are such big files. So I'm going to keep to collecting the DVDs. I downloaded a DVD of the O2 show though as I've yet to see a copy of the O2 DVD at any record fair. I also got Nirvana at Reading '92 DVD.
  15. Hi all! Just thought Id say that "Over The Rainbow" now have a Myspace page so it seems as if everything is in motion and is definitely going to happen. I, myself cannot wait and hope they do some dates in the UK. OTR Myspace Link
