A-list shows returning to Atlantic City with Guns N' Roses
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — (AP) — Welcome (back) to the jungle: Guns N' Roses is playing an Atlantic City casino this year. The iconic hard rock band has booked two dates at the Hard Rock casino Sept. 11 and 12 in the clearest sign yet that big-name entertainment is returning to the seaside gambling resort as it emerges from the coronavirus pandemic. Opening the shows will be Mammoth WVH, the band led by Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, son of the late guitar legend Eddie Van Halen. The band says the Hard Rock shows will be the “most intimate” of their tour, which normally plays huge sports stadiums. Those restrictions, since lifted, made it impossible to book A-list acts because only a small percentage of seats could be sold.wftv.com
