Welcome to the Jungle!

If you’re a fan of rock ‘n roll, you won’t want to miss an epic show by the legendary Guns N’ Roses this Monday in the Glebe.

The classic rock icons are bringing their Not in This Lifetime Tour to TD Place Monday night, and with it will come a sense of late 80s nostalgia when they drop hits like Sweet Child O’ Mine, Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City. Tickets are still available for the show, so click here if you ready to rock.

But that’s not the only thing worth checking out in the Glebe. Here’s a quick run down of how you should be spending your time this weekend.
