As an aside, they have been playing the Velvet Revolver song Slither in their set every night during their current Europe tour run.

That was uncomfortable. Axls voice and styling just doesn't sit with me knowing the original. No different hearing to miles trying to sing Rod Jackson's snakepit parts....it just was missing something.

I’ll be at the Leipzig gig on the 7th of July. Can’t wait!

They’ve been playing Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun on the tour as well, and I think ever since the death of CC.

Jesus, is that yours? That's devotion. I like my super deluxe boxes, but that was a bridge too far.

Speaking of which... bought the super deluxe yesterday and have only now had a chance to open it. I hadn't read the blurb very thoroughly and had assumed, for $285, that like cheaper box sets it would include vinyl. So for a while I'm trying to (gently) peel apart the cardboard panel that holds the CDs. I was convinced the vinyl had to be in there.

Not even a dedicated fan really, just a fan of the album which (briefly) breathed life back into rock n' roll. The fluff in the accessories bundle adds no value IMO, and omitting One In A Million in a nod to political correctness says it all about this over-priced package. Guns n' Ripoffs.

Good news.

Now need madein to re announce thier tour that got cancelled.

Bring back the rock...
Pretty sure Maiden have rescheduled most shows save for the Aust/NZ leg. Metallica did the same from memory. Guess there's more money for them elsewhere.

Bitchin'!

Is this off the back of a new album, or is it a hits tour like last time?
Still nothing on a new album other than "they are working on one" and who knows if that's true. I kind of hope not though, just a hits tour please. We don't want another Chinese Democracy* on our hands, the album or the wait time.


*It wasn't a total sh*t album, but not much good either.

the original lineup or Axl and friends?
LoL more like hired henchmen.
Axl and misfits.

This tour might be the real deal.
Like last tour.

Dont know why all of a sudden they freinds again.
Hope it's the original lineup they toured with last time (minus Izzy). I have no reason to believe it won't be.

Being in the pit at the MCG last time was a night to remember. I'll probably be there again.

How did they sound.
They not known for their live music.
Like other live acts.
I have no complaints. Maybe it was different further back in GA and the stands.

I saw Foo Fighters at Marvel Stadium with the roof open. Sat in the nosebleeds. Didn't get into it as much, but I don't know it was because the sound wasn't that great or if I was so far away.
Pearl Jam's sound at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome (also outdoor) was incredible, though I was up closer there again.
