Another Vegas residency
When you take that trip to Vegas late this spring or early summer, you may want to ensure you score your Guns N’ Roses tickets. The band has announced a new residency in Sin City inside The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Named No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction, the band will perform six dates in late may and three in early June. Tickets start at $49.50 and go on sale February 21st. This isn’t the band’s first rodeo in Vegas. The first back in 2012 brought fans from all over to rock out with Axl and crew. Aside from performing in Vegas later this year the band will also headline Rock on the Range in Columbus.
Sounding off online
Who knew that GN’R’s Axl Rose had a soft spot for baby giraffes? Apparently he does. The singer recently took to the interwebs to sound off on some viral topics like the recent Super Bowl performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But, Rose is also perplexed by the killing of a baby giraffe in Copenhagen. Rose first sent a sarcastic Tweet about the culling but then took to Facebook for more in-depth and thoughtful analysis saying the giraffes life could have been spared and it was barbaric. News reports indicate the giraffe was let down to keep it from inbreeding, but that wasn’t enough justification for Mr. Rose.
Whip It in Peace
Regardless of your opinion on 80s new wave rock, it’s without question that the band Devo impacted us all. One of the founding members of the band has passed away. Bob Casale was 61 and family say it was a total shock. The guitarist died from heart failure Monday. Casale wasn’t just a guitarist, he was also a talented audio engineer. Devo is best known for their 80s synth-pop hit “Whip It.” Another member of the band, drummer Alan Myers, died last year after battling cancer at the age of 58. Now whip it good.
