Rock band Guns N’ Roses is back after a decades-long hiatus, and the rule-breaking atmosphere of their concerts doesn’t seem to have dissipated over the years.

At least 30 people were arrested at a Guns N’ Roses concert in New Jersey on Saturday, including a woman accused of assaulting police.

The arrests took place at the band’s first show at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford; they played again on Sunday evening.

Investigators say 30-year-old Kimberly Goodman was charged with aggravated assault against two state troopers, who received minor injuries.

State troopers say there were also arrests for a wide variety of offences, including solicitation without a permit, disorderly persons, criminal trespassing, simple assault, drug possession and usage, resisting arrests, open lewdness and harassment.

It’s unclear if Goodman has a lawyer.

Guns N’ Roses broke up in 1996 and the reunion of singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan is called the Not in This Lifetime tour. The band recently played a sold-out show in Toronto.
