    Well we'll look whose coming to town! Would you go or would you buy a Strat instead?
    Stadium holds 100,000 people and if one wants to see this concert need good tickets. So it's $500 for 2 tickets , hmmmm.... .

    I would buy a guitar over seeing a band with 100,000 other people any day.

    yeah Strat is the way to go, the guys in Guns and Roses hate each other they are only in it for your money, they will only be going through the motions there will be no magic unlike in your Brand new Stratocaster @brians the price is right come on down!

    In that scenario, I'd take the strat. But, I went to see GNR in Vancouver for my birthday last year, and it was one of the best shows I've ever been to. A solid 3 hours of music, and that's just GNR. The opener was killer, too. I didn't even consider springing for the expensive tickets, though. We paid $80 per ticket and sat in the lower upper bowl. Still a great experience, and there are so many huge screens that you don't miss anything. So what I'm saying is, get both!

    I'd even go as far as saying 1987 G&R vs Strat - G&R, but tickets were cheap back then so you could probably do both.

    I saw Queen for $7.50 at stadium show. One of my top five concerts. $7.50.

    Now, I know about inflation, but holy hell. And I don't even see GNR in the same 'ballpark'. Someone, somewhere is making a tremendous amount of money.

    Axel rose is such an ass, and hes been that way for so long. I'd probably go if they let you throw tomatoes at him.
