According to Rolling Stone, Guns N' Roses will be doing a small club tour this February, including a stop in Atlantic City .
The "mini-tour" is apparently timed around New York's Fashion Week, and will include stops at three New York City ares clubs: the Roseland Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5.
The tour continues in mid-February with shows in Chicago, Atlantic City and Silver Spring, Maryland.
Although Axl and company toured extensively in 2011, they did not stop in New York or Atlantic City.
Before starting a European tour later this year, the original lineup of Guns N' Roses will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
It has yet to be announced who will indeed perform on that evening, as Rose and original members of the band such as Slash have parted ways — again and again.
"I personally just want to finish what I started with those jack-offs," drummer Steven Adler told Rolling Stone last month. "We started off something, let's end the career playing together, at least once. I'd love to do a whole tour of the world. I personally – and I know that Slash and Duff feel the same way – we owe it to the fans to do a tour around the world. We haven't performed for over 20 years and they've stuck by us and believe in us."
Guns N' Roses will play the intimate House of Blues Music Hall at Showboat on Feb. 24, in Atlantic City.

" There wasn’t a lot of temptation on the Rush tour bus for us. Fortunately our audience is 99 percent male, which made things a lot easier than it could have been if we were another band. "
How does it feel — to be a Rolling Stone? “Feels great,” says Wood. “It’s an unbelievable thing that’s been going on for this length of time and we’re certainly covering new ground by being the first rock and roll band to be 50 years old.”
Tommy Stinson is asking some questions about the fashionable Paleo diet since he’s hoping for some extra energy. That’s understandable since the Guns N’ Roses bassist is working around the clock.

ATLANTIC CITY'S TAGLINE "Always Turned On" is about to be energized with a party that lives up to the slogan. Borgata hosts the two-day, outdoor Maxim Fantasy Island party with music by Velvet Revolver, John Mayer, Hoobastank and other bands June 26 and June 27. The Maxim girls, led by Maxim cover girl Kim Smith, and Survivor winner Amber Brkich, are also scheduled to appear. Nine acres of prime property next to Borgata are being transformed into two music stages, and four themed areas -- South Beach, Venice Beach, Stuffland and The Oasis -- to create a hedonistic carnivale atmosphere. The party runs from 4-10pm each day. Normally, such exclusive parties are private affairs, roped off from the public at large, covered with tantalizing -- and envy-inducing -- TV reports on the E Channel and Entertainment Tonight. As the ultimate party playground is being constructed outside his casino, Larry Mullin, Borgata's executive vice president of marketing, is thrilled that Maxim settled on the Borgata. "We did [a private party] with Maxim at the Super Bowl in Houston. Their parties are legendary in Los Angeles, New York and Miami. They were looking to do something open to the public on a much...
“There were two things that helped me survive, my guitar and my music and sometimes that wasn’t even enough,” he says. “The real grounding factor is my family. That’s been a real stabilizing force."
South Jersey rock fans are really lucky. Every summer bands take the many area stages and treat listeners to awesome shows and great music. This weekend, fans can look forward to the return of Vel...
THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT Norah Jones would be coming to Boardwalk Hall, that Kid Rock was bringing his cocky self to the Taj, that 311 and The Roots would bring their rock 'n' rap to the Taj, and that the Borgata was hosting Maxim's Fantasy Island music festival, broke up an otherwise old school summer entertainment lineup. Back in 1980, sociologists predicted that the post-war baby boom generation, born between 1946-1964, was so large it would dominate American culture in successive decades. From the looks of the music and comedy scheduled this summer along casino row and the marina properties, I'd say that trend is right on and outta-sight. Old School Casino You can't get more old school than Wayne Newton, July 23-24, and Liza Minnelli, July 2-3, at Harrah's. Resorts has Tom Jones June 24-27, and smooth Smokey Robinson July 24-25. Paul Anka continues his exclusive contract at Borgata Aug. 13-15. Also scheduled to perform this summer are Lou Rawls at Adrian Phillips Ballroom at Boardwalk Hall July 26, presented by Trump Plaza; Patti Labelle, July 17 at Borgata; The Temptations, June 25-27 at the Trop; Bobby Vinton, Aug. 6-8, at Resorts, and Dick Fox's Golden Boys with Frankie Avalon,...
