Live shows including legendary rock band Guns N’ Roses have become somewhat of a crap-shoot in recent years, but fans hoping for a miracle after the much-anticipated let down that was Chinese Democracy, should see a grand show in Atlantic City on Friday, Feb. 24.

Although GNR now includes eight members, — it’s been a non-stop dramatic soap opera between the original members over the years —  with the band’s mini tour debut in New York in the rearview, GNR fans’ prayers may have been answered.

Although Axl Rose, now 50, is the only original member of the band in its current incarnation, his powerful, undeniably distinct voice made the New York show a thrilling event, according to Rolling Stone’s Andy Greene, who added that Rose “sounded absolutely amazing.”

“Even after all these years, it’s still a little weird to see a bunch of other guys playing ['Welcome to the Jungle'], but once Axl opens his mouth and screams ‘Welcome to the jungle, we got fun and games!’ all that is forgotten.”

The Roseland Ballroom show in New York, which kicked off the current tour, started around 10:20 with opening act Manitoba and GNR hit the stage just over an hour later, playing through to 2:15am.

On Tuesday, Feb. 21, it was announced that Guns N’ Roses will be adding two more dates to its tour —The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Pa., on Feb. 27, and the House of Blues in Orlando, Fla. on March 3.

Look for a Guns N’ Roses interview in this week’s issue of Atlantic City Weekly!

Remaining Tour Dates:
2/21 The Fillmore (MI)
2/23 The Fillmore (MD)
*2/24 House of Blues (NJ)
2/27 The Electric Factory (PA)
3/3 House of Blues (FL)

    Granted, although not strictly weather related,occurences of rogue waves also known as killer waves are towering and spontaneous ocean waves that are born far out at sea, and are a danger even to tankers.In oceanography, they are usually defined as waves whose height is more than twice the significant wave height (SWH), this measurement is dependant on observing a series of waves to determine the largest third of waves. Therefore these waves are not necessarily the biggest waves found at sea; they are, surprisingly, large waves for a given sea state.

    I used to love GNR years ago, but just can’t handle Axl and is ego anymore. Plus, as everyone has noticed, the music is far from what it used to be.

    My .02 cents.
