    I'd be interested, but probably not at the G. I'm pretty sure I can't afford the diamond or premium seats, and from anywhere else you might as well watch a YouTube stream.

    I was thinking about it but will probably skip it. I've seen GNR twice, Slash four times and Duff once, so I don't really feel I need to see the new lineup. I also think they've overshot just how popular the tour will be, so I'll see how ticket prices are closer to the show.

    The tour seems to have sold well so far!

    I'd like to have gone but didn't. Oh well.

    I ended up going and had a fun time. Slash with his band was better though and, dare I say, GNR on their last two times here was better as well.

    Nice to hear that honesty. Their last tour was killer. I loved Chinese Democracy.

    I need to go back and listen to it again, I do remember enjoying it as an album.

    It's a good album, even if it's of a different style to the others. There's a few really good songs on there.

    I still say it'd have been hailed as a brilliant album if it was put out buy "Axl Rose and Friends". But by having "Guns-n-Roses" on the cover it had to be compared with Appetite, and it was never going to be able to do that, even if was 10 years in the making.

    Give it a go Southy! What you been listening to?

    And yeah I think you're right, phlog. Releasing it as Axl and Friends would have garnered a different reaction. Another problem was the 10 year thing - people had higher expectations after such a long wait.
