So much for us being able to predict what they are going to do this year lol

I dunno if I'm gonna see them. It depends on funds and time but it's good they're touring Europe again sfhaetdj

Not only were we kept in the dark, but it seems like the band members also believed 2012 would be for making new music, and, apparently, Axl and management has been setting up new tours

I smell a live recording. I also expect some new material to be played, little by little, over the course of the touring. They may go into studio to record this new material fresh off of the road from this upcoming tour(s) or in between legs once the songs are worked out live, song list to be selected from what works out well live plus some additional never heard before ear candy. Axl and the boys taking up the reins post-HOF and post-Azoff settlement in, of all places, Dublin, where it has been reported that Axl has "unfinished business" suggests to me an attitude I've always admired GNR for. I hope GNR bring the Dublin audience to it's knees in a really good way and takes Europe like conquering heroes.... I've a bit of a romantic streak.

Yes, there were numerous quote from members saying that the band would now focus on working on a new record. Now it seems like at least the first half of 2012 will be devoted to live shows.

I don't know about Hellfest.

Hopefully not too much drama from Bumble this time. Hopefully he won't be in too much pain (or none at all) and hopefully not the same facebook/twitter stuff as last time Smile
