New club dates added


Quebec And Canada Flags

WOW.

What a big day we had yesterday.

Guns N’ Roses added two club dates, following up their big gig at Le festival d’été de Québec!

One at Le Métropolis in Montréal on July 14th, and the other one, the day after, on July 15th, at The Sound Academy in Toronto.

Montreal deserve a god private show.  To shut the trap of the whiners here in Montreal, that have been whining for the past 21 years.

As for myself, I will attend the big show in Quebec, and the Montreal date at the Metropolis.

I will update my facebook page and my twitter page with pictures, and set list as it happens!

Ready?

20 years ago today!


Do you remember what happened 20 years ago today?

I fucking do!

20 years ago today, I was 18 years old.  And I was preparing for the show of my life.  I was preparing for the Guns N’ Roses / Metallica show at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal.  It was a killer bill.  Faith no more / Metallica / Guns n Roses.

How could you ask for more.  If I remember correctly, the prices for the tickets were “roughly” 45$.  Very cheap if you compare to the overpriced tickets bands charges.  (Except for GnR that charges way less than others!

Anyhow, I was preparing for the show of my life.  THe show took place.  Faith no more went on.  Followed by Metallica.  Halfway threw the set, a pyro went on, and James Hetfield was burned very badly.  They had to go home.

Guns N’ Roses took the stage 2 hours later.  And disapeared 45 minutes later.

I came back home crying.  We will never know what happened this night.  Bad sound?  Bad night?  Sickness?  Anyhow.  I was pretty sad.  But the end of show got a bit violent outside the Olympic Stadium.  A huge riot started.  Police cars were put into flames, the Montreal Expos boutique was completly vandalized.  The riot stopped couple of hours later.

Anyhow.  I just wanted to remember myself and others of what happened in Montreal, 20 years ago!  One night I will never forget!  

It took 18 years before the Gunners came back to Montreal.  Another show I will never ever forget!  

RockStar Weekly Guns N’ Roses set list magazine


GREAT THING TO BUY!

Taken from :

http://www.rockstarweekly.com/rockstar-weekly-guns-n-roses-set-lists-magazine-now-available.html

RockStar Weekly is pleased to announce the second release in our Tour Edition Collection. This time out we’re looking at the 2009-2010 Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy Tour with a 60 page collection of set lists from the entire tour. The magazine is being printed and distributed by Hewlett-Packard Development Company production service MagCloud.

We saw some incredible set lists on this tour, including a 42-song outing in Tokyo, Japan which lasted 3 hours and 37 minutes. Let’s hope that show finds it’s way to official DVD/Blu-Ray release. In traditional GNR manner, the set list changes are frequent and the lengths of the shows range from 21 to 42 songs. The band also had fun performing several covers as full songs or instrumentals during the tour. The complete list of songs performed is below. This book also contains a great fan story from Elías Helgi, who went from Iceland to Canada to see GNR.

We hope you enjoy this collection of set lists from the 2009-2010 GNR tour dates – It’s the only collection of its kind available in printed matter and would be a great memento if you attended one of the shows.
As a bonus, RockStar Weekly will donate $1.00 from each magazine sold to Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal’s favourite charity – the Multiple Sclerosis Research Foundation.


Guns n Roses is a top act again!


Here is an article taken from Billboard.com.  Guns n ROses is finally back in the top ranking of the tours in North America.  FINALLY!!!!!!!

in other news, the date for the show in Sweden is set for the June 12th!

Is it fucking nice to see Guns n ROses back on top again??????

lton John & Billy Joel‘s Face 2 Face Tour ranks at the top of the latest Hot Tours tally based on two performances at Seattle’s KeyArena on Feb. 3 and 6.  The shows were make-up dates originally scheduled for last November but postponed due to John taking ill.  Both concerts were sellouts with a combined total of $3.7 million in box office grosses.  27,605 fans attended the two sold out performances.

Veteran rock band Mötley Crüe is second among the current list of Hot Tours based on totals from its Dead of Winter Canadian Tour that played 10 cities during January and February.  Totals from eight of those concerts were reported during the past week with an overall gross of $2.8 million ($3 million Canadian) earned at the box office.  Of those eight shows, the top attendance came at Edmonton’s Rexall Place, home arena for the NHL’s Oilers.  The Jan. 27 event produced over half-a-million Canadian dollars in gross ticket sales.  The band’s short Canadian trek follows a busy 2009 on the road beginning with last year’s Saints of Los Angeles Tour in North America and Europe as well as the second consecutive summer Crüe Fest Tour that played July through September.

Guns N’ Roses lands at No. 3 in the rankings based on box office totals from the Canadian leg of its Chinese Democracy World Tour.  With six venues submitting totals during the most recent reporting period, combined grosses topped $2.6 million (over $2.7 million Canadian).  The 17,500-seat arena Rexall Place in Edmonton produced the band’s top gross and attendance on Jan. 17 just as it did for Mötley Crüe 10 days later.

OFFICIAL WEB SITE AND TICKETS:

The Halifax Metro Centre was built in 1978 in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The building is next to the World Trade and Convention Centre, at the foot of Citadel Hill. It is the largest arena in Halifax. It originally featured a full ring of bright orange seats around the playing surface, which is known as the “lower bowl”. It also has an incomplete “upper bowl” on each side of the arena facing rink-side (court-side) with seats of the same colour. In the mid to late 1990s, there were numerous renovations to the arena, including the addition of forty-three SkyBoxes and eleven “Executive Suites”. The addition of the SkyBoxes has since partially obscured views for people sitting high up in the upper bowl. These boxes do not cut off views of the events, but more cut off views of the rest of the seating area. Before the 2002–03 ice hockey season, in preparation for the World Junior Ice Hockey Championship, a new scoreboard and “SilverVision” LED screens were added. The arena concourses feature photographs of the various events that have taken place at the Metro Centre, with one side featuring entertainment events and the other featuring sporting events (including professional wrestling). It currently has a seating capacity of 10,595 for ice hockey. The building is connected to the Downtown Halifax Link system.

The arena is built into the ground to compensate for the steep elevation of the land it occupies. One can see cars at street level, outside, while watching an event. It is sometimes referred to as the “MC”.

In recent years there has been some talk of a possible new, larger arena to be built sometime in the next few years. It would likely have a seating capacity of over 15,000 for hockey games.[citation needed] In December 2007, an Ozzy Osbourne concert sold out in nine minutes, setting a box office ticket record for the Metro Centre. In July 2008, the Metro Centre also set a record sell-out (25,000 tickets sold in forty minutes), for two back-to-back Elton John concerts held in late September 2008.

February 1st, 2010 Quebec City, PQ @ Colisee Pepsi


What a fucking great show in quebec city.  I was sitting down a bit more in front of the stage, so I could really feel the new stage.  The pyros, the screens, the ramps, everthing is so perfect.  I saw many shows of many bands in my life, but that tour tops it all.  And you want to go see another band after this.  Who is gonna top that tour?  Welll…GnR.. themselves!

And what a set list.  Was very happy to hear Rocket Queen again.  Is that a great song or what?  And a great thing to hear a lot of Chinese Democracy songs being played.  Not that the old tunes are not good, but the songs of Chinese Democracy fits so good on this tour.

People of Moncton, be prepared to get your ass kicked seriously!

Can’t wait to see them again.
