SYSTEM OF A DOWN, KORN, FAITH NO MORE Teasing Major Announcement on Instagram
All three bands including SYSTEM OF A DOWN, KORN, FAITH NO MORE are all teasing the same announcement on social media platform Instagram with a photo and a caption reading “MONDAY.” I’m guessing it’s a touring or festival announcement. The announcement shows an astronaut tumbling through the dark in Space.
See all the Instagram posts below.
It seems like at least for SYSTEM OF A DOWN and FAITH NO MORE won’t be recording any new music soon as both band’s members have insisted they are focused on touring and nothing else.

Man Attending SUM 41’s European Shows Arrested for Stuffing Cellphones Into His Bicycle Shorts
It’s been only a week since pop-punk band SUM 41 had to cancel a show in Paris, France after an apparent explosive device went off outside the band’s concert. Well something else strange has happened. A serial pickpocketer attended two of the band’s gigs, one in Antwerp (Belgium) and Amsterdam (Netherlands). It appears the pick pocketer, a 34-year old Romanian male was arrested during the band’s concert in Amsterdam. According to the local authorities the man was found to be carrying 30 stolen cellphones stuffed inside his bicycle shorts during the show. The police were tipped off after many concert goers complained of stolen cellphones. The first concert in Antwerp there were 50 reports of stolen cellphones. It’s a very weird story to say the least.
The arrest came after an abundance of reports of stolen cellphones came in. They were first reported not at that SUM 41 concert, but rather the band’s Jan. 14 show in Antwerp — where around 50 devices were stolen.
The suspect’s charges have not yet been announced and he will see a judge before the end of this week and is currently in custody. How he managed to stuff so many cellphones into his bike shorts is unknown.
GUNS N’ ROSES Kick Off Their First Show of 2020 and Here’s What We Can Expect
GUNS N’ ROSES are kicking off 2020 with their first show of the year in Miami, Florida at the American Airlines Arena as part of the Super Bowl Music Festival. The Festival of course coincides with the Super Bowl this weekend that sees the Kansas City Chiefs square off against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. GUNS N’ ROSES have SNOOP DOGG opening for them tonight and here’s what I think we’ll see tonight.
story continued below….
- Shorter Setlist – If history is any indication, then we know the opening date of any Guns N’ Roses tour or one-off show is usually a shorter concert. It’s pretty obvious that frontman AXL ROSE doesn’t properly rehearse or appear in shape for the first show of any leg of the tour. Just look at Berlin 2018 or Rock in Rio 2017. Those were awful shows and don’t expect tonight’s show to be any different. Some people may say, why are you being negative? Well I don’t drink the kool-aid that Team Brazil feeds a lot of it’s “die-hard” fans who will never speak ill of the band. Let’s call a spade a spade.
- No New Songs – I’ll admit that the band’s tour last fall was a tiny bit more exciting than previous treks as we saw “Dead Horse” and “Locomotive” added to the set, but that was basically it. Don’t expect anything earth shattering tonight. Shorter setlist = no new songs and plenty of covers for everyone!
- Pro-Shot Footage – There maybe some pro-shot footage as I’m sure some news stations will be covering the concert and festival in general. I have heard that SNOOP DOGG’s performance will be partially covered by news stations and pro-shot footage will be revealed at least according to the MyGNRForums.
- Lots of Mickey Mouse From AXL ROSE – If you’ve been following the band on their Never Ending in This Lifetime Tour or “NOT IN THIS LIFETIME TOUR” then you’d know Mickey Mouse is alive and well in AXL ROSE’s voice. We may see a few small moments of rasp, but expect lots of Mickey tonight especially during “You Could Be Mine,” and “Rocket Queen” and “Civil War.”
