* Guns N' Roses, CKY, Mixmaster Mike -- 7:30 p.m. Monday in Nationwide Arena, 200 W. Nationwide Blvd. (1-800645-2657)

Guns N' Roses 2003 is another name for Felix Cavaliere and the Rascals or any other state fair act with one holdout and a different beat. Original member Axl Rose leads this freak show. Buckethead, a guitarist whose stage gear leaves nothing to the imagination, wears a KFC bucket on his head. The drummer is named Brain. The keyboard player is Dizzy Reed. Bassist Tommy Stinson was a Replacement, and guitarist Richard Fortus played sessions for 'N Sync.

The tour's scheduled debut show in Vancouver, British Columbia, was a bust. Rose was late, making the promoter and the arena folk nervous. The show was canceled. The de facto debut show -- Tacoma, Wash. -- drew 6,000 fans and mixed reaction from reviewers.

Philadelphia metal band CKY, whose music has been featured on the MTV low-art thrill-ride Jackass, will perform first, followed by a set by daredevil DJ Mixmaster Mike.

CKY drummer Jess Margera, phoning last week from Fargo, N.D., said the band received the call to open the tour during a two-day drive from a Tony Hawk skateboard/rock festival in Detroit to a club gig in San Diego.

"We were 400 miles from San Diego when they told us to drive to Vancouver,'' Margera said. "We got there that night at 6:30, loaded in, sound checked, and we were hanging out in the dressing room when we heard the message over the speaker system: 'The show has been canceled.'

"It would have been horrible, but we got some great footage of broken windows and crap.''

CKY had played four shows before Margera called. He said Axl Rose "is a gentleman.''

"We've been hanging out with (Guns N' Roses) at the after-parties,'' Margera said. "They're great guys. Everybody tells these horror stories about Axl, but he's as nice as can be to us.''

Tickets cost $31 to $56 at Ticketmaster and the arena box office.

- Aaron Beck, Columbus Dispatch

Fewer than 6,000 people visited Nationwide Arena on Monday night to see the 2002 version of Guns N' Roses, which includes one original member: Axl Rose.

Once the lights went down, however, the underattended show could have been taking place in a filled Brazilian soccer stadium.

A production that probably made the Columbus power grid dim, a batch of oldies (the band played the bulk of Appetite for Destruction) and the anticipation by a crowd that had waited more than a decade -- and more than an hour between Mixmaster Mike and the time Guns N' Roses took the stage -- all fueled the buzzing mood.

Welcome to the Jungle, a natural opener, was flat. The volume was uncharacteristically low for an arena-rock show. Rose's voice sounded wrecked. The mix was muddy.

But starting with song two, It's So Easy, the six-man band didn't let up until two hours later (12:10 a.m.) with the encore, Paradise City.

When he wasn't playing Elton John at a black grand piano (November Rain), Rose ran the sprawling stage all night. His screeching voice was strong throughout.

Rose, a 40-year-old Hoosier, was dressed in baggy tracks pants, white athletic shoes -- as blinding as his severely bleached teeth -- and a series of oversize Buckeyes and Blue Jackets jerseys. His shoulder-length braids and un-rocklike gold rings on his fingers fit in perfectly with today's Guns N' Roses, a group of eccentrics.

Guitarist Slash used to be a fan favorite, but if mascots are what people crave, they don't have to look any further than one of the three guitarists.

The man with an upside-down KFC bucket on his head and a white, expressionless mask on his face, Buckethead, plays guitar a la the Eddie Van Halen school of inventive, classical metal. His solo consisted of demonstrating nunchakus and break dancing, playing pieces of the Star Wars theme and Old MacDonald and tossing action figures into the crowd. Basically, he screwed around for a few minutes.

His intricate picking suggested that soloing during Sweet Child o' Mine (a show highlight) does not worry him. Frank Zappa would have loved it.

Rose seemed to get a kick out of the guy and the rest of the band, which also includes occasional Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck, 'N Sync session guitarist Richard Fortus, former Primus drummer Brain, former Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pittman. The new lineup sounds tight, and watching them play made one realize: This ain't no state fair version throwing something together to pay the rent.

The band played three new songs. Two were sprawling power-ballad types on par with November Rain. There was no sign of the industrial rock route Rose took to record the one song the band has released in 10 years, Oh My God. Perhaps the tunes are from Chinese Democracy, the album Rose says will come out next year (uh-huh).

Rose and company knew the people came for the hits, and the group did a nice job of not bogging down the show with unfamiliar music. The evening was expertly paced and without lulls. Sure, the 2002 version isn't as drunk, sleazy and reckless as the Izzy-Slash-Duff-Axl-Adler combo that started this whole thing in '85, but, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back Guns N' Roses.
