Rock icons Guns N’ Roses are coming to the Halifax Metro Centre on Thursday, Feb. 4. Expect lots of cuts from the band’s latest album Chinese Democracy, as well as a healthy dose of rock anthems like Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City. The Axl Rose-fronted group has only one other holdover from the band’s Use Your Illusion days — keyboardist Dizzy Reed. Also on the bill are Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row frontman) and Canadian rocker Danko Jones. Tickets range from $62.50 to $77.50, plus additional service charges if ordered online.

Up until Feb. 14, Neptune Theatre will be showcasing Sexy Laundry, a hilarious play looking at a couple’s marriage and the wife’s efforts to rekindle it after 25 years of marriage.

The country’s best male curlers will all be in Halifax from March 6 to 14 fighting to win the 2010 Tim Hortons Brier. Of Team Nova Scotia’s previous three victories in the Brier, only one happened on home soil. That was in 1951.
