    Tremendous news!

    I thought Axl was banned for life, but fine by me.

    These are gonna be expensive seats. No doubt about that.

    I'd bet worst seats are $50+ before tax & fees.

    I'd also bet face on best seats are at least $150, but really expecting them to be $250+.

    Wow, I like this but BDS has never and will never again see the level of intoxication which is about to fall upon it.

    Speaking of intoxication, no beer sales for this ?

    They sold beer at United games, so I am sure there will beer sales at the concert.

    Pink Floyd played at BDS in the 90s. I wasn't there, but I'm sure that there was a high level of alcohol and other mind altering substances there for that concert.

    I saw Guns and Roses when I was a teenager, and GnR was close to their prime. No thanks, Axl Rose's vocals are terrible live...much like Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows. Two of my favorite bands with horrible lead men live. I can't even imagine what Axl sounds like now. Actually:



    Slash is still the man on lead guitar. Axl...dude, lighten up on the botox...

    I wouldn't sell the experience short. I saw them 3yrs ago in Chicago and it was a blast! Are they still 20y/os? No, obviously - but they put all they had into the set. It was awesome.

    They're still gonna sell out because GnR was the seminal band of the 1980's, and they have a catalogue of songs that's some of the best. Their fanbase is pretty huge as well. I'm just saying for me...no thanks.

    Duritz is an incredible songwriter. Singer, not so much.

    I had heard Axl's voice was gone years ago.

    Are we worried at all about the field being in good shape come the Clemson game?
