Guns n’ Roses Puttin’ on The Ritz
Actually they’re putting on a show at The Ritz, which was the site of a 1988 bootleg video and the group hasn’t been back since, but that’s not the only stop Guns n’ Roses is making.
Guns n’ Roses, or the latest incarnation of it is making their debut at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, and Terminal Five as well as making a return to The Ritz, the site of their infamous 1988 bootleg video. The Ritz is no longer known as The Ritz. It now goes by the name Webster Hall, but they’re changing the name for one night only just for the GNR show February 15. They’re even changing the decor and the facade of the building to look just like it did when GNR was there in 1988. Wish I had that kind of pull.
The band is also stopping in Chicago, Illinois on February 19 before they head back to the East Cost for shows in Maryland and New Jersey. There were several rumors that the band was going to get their original line up back together to play the Super Bowl Halftime show this year, as it is in Axl’s native Indianapolis, but it was not to be. Instead, Madonna will fill that slot.
Will Axl be on time? That remains to be seen.
