Dizzy Reed Asked About the Band’s 2020 Plans
Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed appeared on Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon,
Dizzy performed on all GN’R records since 1991’s “Use Your Illusion.” Lafon asked Reed about the band’s 2020 plans. The exchange went as follows:
We do have this GN’R headline show coming up in January for the Bud Light Superbowl Music fest. Is that one of many? Do you see the band gearing up for the whole run in 2020 or will you do a couple of off-dates and then [side project] H&B What do you sort of see going forward, or is it just, like, ‘Hey, when the phone rings, I’ll just show up’?
“I hate to say it, but that’s how it works for me. I’ll get that e-mail, I’ll get that phone call, and I’m ready to go. If I know that there’s time off, then that’s when I schedule H&B, that’s when I get this done.”But when the phone rings, when GN’R calls, I follow, I go.”
Motley Crue Fans Blast the Band Over “Ridiculous” Meet and Greet Packages!
Motley Crue fans have accused promoters of trying to take advantage of fans with their ridiculous VIP Meet & Greet packages for the band’s summer 2020 stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett. They also discussed past meet and greets and hteir experiences.
Stacebabe posted on Reddit, “Wild side is $4.5k!!! No way in hell!!” Jedifire wrote, “I didn’t pay, I was the plus one for a friend of mine who bought Nikki’s stage played bass. I don’t know what the price was, and my understanding was there were only two per show in the tour, but we got to spend about 10-15 minutes alone talking with Nikki (and photographer and assistant).
This was done I believe after the whole band meet and greet but I will say that it was nice to have an I rushed conversation with Nikki. That might be a better option for some of he is offering something similar in this tour. Sorry about rambling, I’ve had a few beers.”
Androidcoma gave his two cents “It’s not worth the $1500+, just from experience seeing other bands do it, it’s super quick, super impersonal, and the price this time around is flat out absurd vs if it was a few hundred bucks.It’s definitely priced for the older crowd or anyone that’s well off that can afford it, ’cause it’s straight up luxury to pay that much just to get a quick photo and some things signed.”
