Loaded to open for Guns N' Roses? - TRUE

Post by Soulmonster on Sun Oct 30, 2011 5:36 am

According to Eddie Trunk Loaded will open shows for GN'R. More on this when his interview with Axl airs on November 11.

Hope it goes well for both parties, meaning GN'R & Loaded.

for Duff to come onstage and play songs with GNR

It's a two-edged sword. On one hand opening for a huge band like GN'R is good for Loaded because of the exposure to lots of new potential fans, on the other hand it is awkward. But if Duff and Axl is fine with it then all is good. And I do like Duff acknowledging the current version of GN'R. I hate all this "fake GNR" talk from the reunionists.

I don't get how people are never fed up talking reunion but guess GN'R are used to it.
The shows with Loaded warming up may turn out to be interesting.

Eddie Trunk: When I asked Axl about Duff playing with GN'R in England, he volunteered that information. However, I don't think there's any definite plan. Axl mentioned it in passing. But since then I've heard from a number of people doubting it, saying, "Well, that's a nice idea." To my knowledge there's nothing locked in yet.

Duff: There are managers talks for Loaded to open to Guns. It would be a pleasure to do that [Globo, November 2011].

So it might be after all.

Sounds like it will happen after 2011. Otherwise there's not much time and gigs left.

That's right. Seems like GN'R has plans for next year (new website and either tour or recording).

It is now confirmed:

​It's been rumored for some time, but I just got the word from our friend Duff McKagan: His Seattle band, Loaded, will indeed be opening for Guns N' Roses at KeyArena on Friday and at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum on Saturday.

This will be the first time that McKagan -- the founding bassist of Guns N' Roses -- has opened for the current incarnation of GNR, which is fronted by Axl Rose, the sole remaining member of the band's classic lineup. Last week, Guns N' Roses got the word that they'd be inaugurated into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame next year.

Duff: My band Loaded has been asked to play a couple of shows with Axl this weekend in Seattle and Vancouver. I was somehow reluctant at first to do this. I love that dude, but wanted to sort of stay out of the fray, especially after that whirlwind tour of the world we had just done. AND that damn book tour.

But this fray is only a fray if I let it be. And now I am actually pretty excited to see my old pal. His band is the nicest bunch of fellas, and I will be home after all. The KeyArena will be rocking tomorrow night . . . and I hope you all show up

Interesting how he refrains from referring to the band as "Guns N' Roses" but rather says he will be "playing a couple of shows with Axl" and that "[Axl's] band is the nicest bunch of fellows".

I'm more surprised how he is speaking fondly of Axl. Smile

That's nice, yes, but he did speak nicely about him after the show in London, too, so I am not that surprised. If he could just acknowledge the current band as Guns N' Roses, too, I'd me perfectly happy.
