Guns N' Roses Coming to Youngstown

Apparently Guns N' Roses are still around. And apparently they're on tour.

The band — or at least Axl Rose and whoever he's playing with these days — is coming to Youngstown's Covelli Centre on December 7.

But who knows if they'll actually make it to Ohio. Rose doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to finishing things (see Chinese Democracy and every single tour he's started and never completed since the original band split in the mid '90s).

Plus, he's such a fat ass these days, he may have a heart attack and die before Thanksgiving.

Of course, even driving to Youngstown and sitting in your seat doesn't guarantee anything — especially not the two-and-a-half hour hits-filled show GNR are promising. In addition to all of the other asshole things he's done, Axl has shown up onstage late and has ended concerts a couple songs into the set. In fact, one of these things is guaranteed.

If you feel like taking a chance that maybe, just maybe, Guns N' Roses will show up on December 7, tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at and Ticketmaster locations. —Michael Gallucci
