Amid a constant barrage of rumors, Guns N’ Roses have announced their very first performance of 2016. The rock band is slated to appear at Coachella, and has a major summer tour planned, but the new announcement will be their first show with Slash and Axl Rose in 23 years. The group is performing tonight, April 1st, at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.Billed as “not an April Fool’s joke,” the first performance promises to be quite the intimate experience, and tickets are being sold as non-transferrable wristbands at the club itself for only $10. Of course, the line is already so long that anyone reading this won’t be able to get them, unfortunately, but it’s still quite intriguing to hear that the group is performing together once again.After 23 years, it will be interesting to see what songs GNR decide to pull out of their repertoire. For more about the show announcement, head to the band’s official website.
0Shares0000Mesut Ozil lays in an assist for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang during their English Premier League match against Leicester City on October 23, 2018LONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 23 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil stole the show as Arsenal swept to their 10th successive win with a dominant 3-1 victory against Leicester on Monday.Unai Emery’s side trailed to Hector Bellerin’s first half own goal at the Emirates Stadium. But Ozil, captaining Arsenal on his return to the side after back spasms, produced a majestic display to lead the Gunners’ impressive fightback.Ozil, shrugging off his poor start to the season, equalised just before half-time and played a key role in Aubameyang’s second half double.Gabon striker Aubameyang scored twice in quick succession after coming off the bench, ensuring Arsenal won 10 consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since 2007.They have scored 30 goals in that blistering streak and climb to fourth place in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.On the 69th birthday of Emery’s predecessor Arsene Wenger, this was the kind of swashbuckling show that recalled Arsenal’s glory days under the Frenchman.It was the perfect start to a hectic week that sees Arsenal travel to Portugal for a Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday before returning to domestic action at Crystal Palace on Sunday.Emery has made a remarkable impact since replacing Wenger in the close-season.The Spanish manager’s two-game losing streak at the start of his Arsenal reign is now a distant memory as Gunners fans start to dream of a title challenge after their seventh successive league win.Initially, Arsenal struggled to get up to speed and Kelechi Iheanacho made a break behind Stephane Lichtsteiner, leaving him trailing in his wake as he cut into the area for a shot that was deflected over by Rob Holding.Iheanacho threatened again moments later, taking possession on the edge of the area before unleashing a curling effort that Bernd Leno pushed away.– Driving forward –Leicester had a strong claim for a spot-kick when Holding raised his arm above his head and clearly handled as he jumped to meet Jamie Vardy’s flick on, yet referee Christopher Kavanagh waved play on.Harry Maguire’s towering header forced a good save from Leno and Leicester’s pressure reaped a tangible reward in the 31st minute.Wilfried Ndidi’s pass picked out Ben Chilwell, who made a superb run in behind Bellerin and drilled a low shot that deflected off the Arsenal defender on its way past the wrong-footed Leno.Stunned into action by that setback, Arsenal nearly snatched an immediate equaliser when Granit Xhaka’s free-kick was tipped over by Kasper Schmeichel.Suddenly, Arsenal were driving forward with purpose and they drew level on the stroke of half-time.Ozil was the catalyst as his pass sent Bellerin away down the right and when the defender crossed into the Leicester area, it was the German midfielder who timed his run perfectly to guide a delicate finish into the far corner.Ndidi led the Leicester response with a powerful header that rattled the bar from James Maddison’s corner.But Emery sent on Aubameyang for Lichtsteiner after 61 minutes and it the match-winning switch paid instant dividends two minutes later.Ozil played a superb pass to Bellerin and the Spaniard’s low cross was just right for the unmarked Aubameyang to slot home from close-range.Aubameyang was in the right place at the right time again in the 66th minute as Arsenal conjured up another incisive raid.This was Arsenal at their finest as Ozil and Lacazette combined to carve open the Leicester defence in a blur of flicks and tricks, presenting Aubameyang with a simple chance to tap in his eighth goal of the season.Rounding off a depressing evening for Leicester, Vardy was forced off, leaving the visitors, who had already made all their substitutions, down to 10 men for the final minutes.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)
Senator O’DomhnaillDONEGAL Senator Brian O Domhnaill will find out today if his High Court challenge to the Standards In Public Office (SIPO) committee has been successful.SIPO wants to question Mr O Domhnaill over his expenses claims between 2006 and 2007, when he was a Donegal County Councillor but he insists the probe must be conducted in Irish. SIPO was due to begin a public session concerning the expenses matter last June, but that did not proceed after Mr O Domhnaill secured leave from the High Court days earlier to bring his challenge.In his judicial review proceedings, the Senator claims that SIPO is not entitled to deal with the case on the grounds that the matter arose from an anonymous complaint by a member of the public.He wants orders requiring the case to be heard by a commission comprising members who are bilingual and able to conduct and understand the proceedings without the assistance of an interpreter.Unless the tribunal is bilingual, his rights as an Irish speaker will be infringed, he claimed.He alleges he will be disadvantaged if an interpreter is necessary to translate the evidence and submissions given on his behalf in Irish. Translator evidence is not similar to direct evidence and he would be marginalised, he has claimed in court.The proceedings, brought against SIPO, the Minister for the Environment and the State, were conducted in Irish before Mr Justice Gerard Hogan over two days last November.The judge will issue his ruling later today.In opposing the case, SIPO and the State contend the complaint being investigated relates to alleged duplication of expenses claims and the investigation is in the public interest.SIPO said the complaint was made in a letter dated May 28, 2012, sent to it by the mayor and county manager of Donegal County Council following an investigation by the two men of a referral made to them by the ethics registrar of the council.While acknowledging information in an anonymous letter had prompted the ethics registrar to examine matters, SIPO contends the complaint being investigated by it is not a referral of that anonymous letter by the mayor and county manager – but rather a complaint by those men arising from their view certain specified acts set out in their report may have been done by Mr O Domhnaill.SIPO also denied that Mr O Domhnaill is entitled to orders requiring that members of the commission should be bilingual. As there is no requirement in the Constitution for judges or members of the Oireachtas to be bilingual, that requirement should not be imposed on commission members, it says.SENATOR O DOMHNAILL TO LEARN FATE OF HIGH COURT CHALLENGE was last modified: January 13th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:SENATOR O DOMHNAILL TO LEARN FATE OF HIGH COURT CHALLENGE
