New Guns N’ Roses material surfaces?

Posted in Music, New Music, News with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2013 by Tickets There

GunsNRosesGOINGDOWNWell would you look at this thing we’re about to tell you. New Guns N’ Roses material – you heard right, NEW. For the first time since 2008, a brand spanking new GN’R leak made it’s way online late last week and managed to stay up for a few days before vanishing under the traditional copyright infringement notice.

Titled ‘Going Down’, the song is a hark back to Illusion era country/blues/rock for the band. Apparently it contains input from Richard Fortus, Ron Thal and Buckethead on guitars while Tommy Stinson takes over main vocal duties with Axl adding harmony in the background.

GNRCopyrightThe song is the first hint of new material since the release of Chinese Democracy and is suspected of coming from one of the two potential Chinese Democracy follow ups that are reported to form a trilogy of records. Well, they already had two Illusions, why not three democracies?

Did you hear the new tune? What did you think?

DUFF McKAGAN PLAYS WITH GUNS N’ ROSES IN LONDON

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2010 by Tickets There

Can barely believe it myself folks but original Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan got up on stage with the band tonight to play You Could Be Mine, Lies favourite Nice Boys, Knockin’ On Heavens Door (featuring Duff on Guitar) and Patience (featuring Duff on Tambourine) at the second sold out night in London’s O2 Arena.

Apparently Axl Rose announced “There Was This Guy At The End Of My Hallway Playing All This Loud Music & Shit. Who The Fuck? Oh! It’s Duff!”. So it seems Mr. McKagan was staying at the same hotel as Axl and the two decided on giving their UK fans a little treat.

This is mega for anyone underestimating the significance. It’s the first time since 93 that Duff and Axl have played together live and might signal an end to the bitterness and rivalry at last. No-ones calling for a reunion, but it would be nice if those guys could patch things up. They did great work together and should get along. Fair play to both Axl and Duff tonight and to Tommy and the rest of the guys for standing back and letting the crowd lap it up. Christ I’d give almost anything to have been there!

Duff ain’t the only X-guns to take the stage with the new line-up. Original guitarist Izzy Stradlin played several shows with Guns in 2006.

Guns N’ Roses – Dublin, September 1st 2010: Message From Tickets There

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , on September 2, 2010 by Tickets There

***Review of Dublin & Belfast Now Posted***

Without rushing into a review, please allow Tickets There one quick comment to all the fans in Dublin who attended tonight’s Guns N’ Roses gig.

Go fuck yourselves, each and every fucking one of you. Anyone that booed, anyone that spent the entire night (not just the 30/50 mins we were waiting) complaining, bitching and moaning about the current line-up, the Chinese Democracy Album, the headlines from Reading (not Leeds or Belfast off course, no fun in discussing the gigs that go brilliantly) and especially every cunt in that crowd that threw bottles at the band – you are scum. You are total scum and Tickets There can only hope you receive the same, the exact same fucking treatment the next day you arrive at work – if yer capable of holding down jobs you total wastes of space.

Fuck Dublin, Fuck tonight’s crowd and fuck anyone that tries to defend the shit Guns had to put up with tonight. You are dicks!
