GUNS N’ ROSES Having Trouble Selling Tickets In Toronto, Canada Their Only Stop North of the Border
According to iHeartRadio, GUNS N’ ROSES are having trouble selling tickets to their upcoming show in Toronto, Canada which is their ownly Canadian stop. The band previously played the “Center of the Universe” in 2016 with a pair of shows at the Scotia Bank Centre, which had no trouble selling out. It’s not surprising the band is having trouble selling tickets since they’ve been on the road for the past five years and haven’t released any new material. On top of that their setlist barely changes and AXL ROSE’s voice isn’t what it used to be. Guess you can only gouge your fans so much.

According to Ticketmaster, almost two-thirds of their 48,217 tickets available for the July 13 concert at Rogers Centre are mostly unsold one week after pre-sales began and three days after they went on sale to the general public.
By Monday of this week, almost 60 percent of the $311 floor seats are unsold and more than 80 percent of the nose bleeds, priced at $108.50 are still available. Still unsold are hundreds of the ridiculous VIP packages for the floor seats that are priced between $689 and $1057. Lots of open seats for general admission in the pit where standing in front of the stage run you $752 to $1510.

DAVE GROHL Claims FOO FIGHTERS New Album Is “Finished”
FOO FIGHTERS have completed work on their new studio album according to frontman DAVE GROHL. It will be the follow up to their 2017 record “Concrete and Gold,” which peaked at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Charts.
During a recent appearance on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” the frontman and singer DAVE GROHL gave a surprising update on the band’s forthcoming record saying;
“We just finished making a record. Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — there’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”
During the interview the FOO FIGHTERS leader DAVE GROHL also confirmed that he is working on a new documentary focused on life touring in a van revealing
“I’ve interviewed everybody, THE BEATLES toured in a van, GUNS N’ ROSES, METALLICA, U2, everybody has had a van. There’s something about that time, you wear it like a badge.
“The movie isn’t so much about really awesome van tour andecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it,” he explained. “Why would anyone give up everything, quit their job, leave everything behind, just to chase this dream with no guarantee you’re ever going to make it? And you starve, you bleed, you’re sick, you’re pissed, you get taken to jail and in fights, but you always make it to the next gig. Everyone has the same story, and it’s absolutely the key to success.
Over the past few weeks FOO FIGHTERS have been releasing EP’s from their archvies leading to the 25th anniversary of their self titled album released in 1995. You can listen to the interview here.
