I'm not a big Guns N' Roses fan, but glad to hear they are coming to the Covelli Centre. I think the Covelli is doing a good job bringing known acts to the centre. Looking forward to seeing Trace Adkins in November!!!

GnR without Slash is like Zep without Page.

Anyhoo, Ryan is doing a fanstitic job with the center, I just wish for more acts scheduled that I would cross the street for, but that's just me. Like where is TSO this year?

Bring some good bands like ELO, Nirvana, Spin Doctors, Kris Kross and Hammer. These are the bands people want to see.

They can have guns n' roses every day of the year, and on December 31, the only person who will have made any money is Eric Ryan, while the city pays the 600k note out of our tax money. I can't believe anyone in authority at city hall can be so plain stoopid !
