Welcome to the Jungle. Bring a sleeping bag (updated)
December 5, 2011 - Andy Gray
Arena shows usually have an 11 p.m. curfew, especially midweek ones.
Not Guns N’ Roses.
The band has a long history of late starts. At least now they are warning fans. Live Nation and the Covelli Centre sent out press releases today amending the start time for Wednesday’s GNR show at the Youngstown arena.
Instead of the concert starting at 8 p.m. with Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, now 8 p.m. is the time that doors will open. Even if Black Label Society starts at 8:30 p.m. and plays 45 minutes, that means GNR won’t be on stage before 10 p.m. I’d guess later.
Based on reviews in other cities (where the band sometimes didn’t take the stage until 11 p.m.), GNR is playing at least two-and-a-half hours each night. So if you plan to be there for the last note, don’t expect to pull out of the parking lot before 1 a.m.
Those who have to be at work early on Thursday might want to start faking a cough now to lay the groundwork for calling in sick later this week.
UPDATE (4:45 p.m. Tuesday): GNR's estimated time of arrival on stage is "10:30ish" according to the information sent today to the media.
Also, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is sending a photographer to Wednesday's concert. Does that mean Guns N' Roses is going to be one of next year's inductees? Maybe. Or it could just be that the photographer is a GNR fan and wants to shoot the show.
