Why would you want to see a reunion show without a few warmup dates under their belt? I bet the Vegas shows will blow. They'll all probably blow. GnR would make a better reality show in 2016 than a touring band.

I think a telling sign as to how this is going to be is the Vegas on-sale promos - they were originally put out using footage of Slash, Axl and Duff from circa-1992, but they replaced it on Youtube with a promo where Fat Axl from recent years is inserted over the footage of his younger self

I don't even mind how he looks, it's just that he tends to have a lovely voice when he's out of shape. He really can't afford to gently caress this up, so I hope he's at least trying to slim down.

On that note I do have a pair of tickets for weekend 1 available - not going to be able to attend as I live in France and it's far as gently caress and can't get the time off work.

Basically just looking to cover the cost of the tickets + shipping, so if you're interested give me a shout at o_makins @ hotmail.com.

THIS would be amazing. Axl comes out in a white body suit and they just projection map his young figure on top.

By the way I might have two weekend 1 tix + a car pass at face value for a Very Special and Lucky Goon.

Currently reserving it to someone in my immediate friendgroup, but I don't think anyone is interested in Coachella anymore so I'm not too hopeful. If anyone is interested, I'd prefer to do the transfer in person so it would have to be done in San Francisco or Los Angeles on April 13th when I'm in town. If these requirements can be filled by anyone reading this feel free to send me a PM

Bonus points if you're a normal person and would camp next to us.

@incoherent are you camping this year for weekend 1?

The marketing guy who started the "free Dr. Pepper for everyone if Chinese Democracy is released by the end of 2008" promotion just posted this:

http://www.mygnrforum.com/index.php?/topic/214235-have-axl-and-slash-actually-reconciled/

quote:

Take this for what it's worth. But I was about to work on a marketing program to promote this comeback show. A major brand was about to sponsor the Vegas shows and do something AWESOME to celebrate Axl & Slash reuniting. Unfortunately, the GN'R camp didn't get back to the brand and it all fell through (not surprised). But the interesting part was this...we were told:

1. The band is not on great terms

2. They will do no interviews together

3. They will not be photographed together

I don't know what to believe. I find it hard to believe Axl would do this if he weren't 100% cool with it and everyone involved. But this feedback came from the management teams of all parties involved. If it's true, it would be sad. This is such a historic musical moment and once again GN'R is missing a golden opportunity to blow it out and give the fans what they deserve - to feel proud of GN'R again. What camp GN'R doesn't understand is the fans LOVE and WANT to see this concert hyped and promoted. Seeing Axl/Slash/Duff together, having a good time, laughing, talking...man that would mean more than the concert itself. The chemistry has to be there OFF the stage for it to occur ON the stage. Here's hoping this is wrong.

Sounds promising!

Your choice is limited if you have a large car. Anyway to swap it out for a small car or rental?

I think we could get away with a smaller car, yeah. Our plan right now is to hang some tarps around an EZ-UP or two -- think it'll provide enough shelter at night?

edit: maybe even one of these things.

Sleeping under an easy up is just fine, unless there is a sandstorm or major winds, which in my experience occur almost every year at least once, it's easier to count years it didn't happen.

I had to sleep under a sandstorm in 2013.

like that's any worse than OFWGKTA in 2011. I'm gonna stop by Rae before LCD for sure.

I love the schedule this year. I'm going to see about 20 acts on Friday, have a Main Stage Saturday(with SSPU, Grimes, Rl Grime to end), and a pretty relaxing Sunday with minimal conflicts.

I'm just being fictitious, we all knew peak edm would happen (in 2015). Glad it's opened up to so many other acts. I memorably saw Late of the pier there to about 100 people.
