Sealed Deal? Guns N’ Roses Exclusively Hitting Best Buy Shelves

Most executives are aware that Best Buy is landing an exclusive on Chinese Democracy, the long-awaited release from Guns N’ Roses.

Now, that deal appears ready for official announcement, according to various reports.

On Friday, the New York Times pointed to a release date “as early as” November 25th, while Billboard predicted an appearance “before year’s end,” both pre-holiday timetables.  The parties are reportedly finalizing late-stage negotiation details, which involve Guns representative Front Line Management.  The release closely follows a high-profile, pre-release leak of nine tracks by a fan and blogger, a move that resulted in an arrest by the FBI.
