Guns N' Roses Confirmed for Reading and Leeds
Guns N' Roses will headline this year's Reading and Leeds Festival, alongside Arcade Fire and Blink 182.
The American trio will each close one night of the three-day event, which takes place on August 27-29 and rotates between the two sites.
They will be supported by a reformed Libertines, rapper Dizzee Rascal, chart-topping rock band Paramore, Biffy Clyro and Queens of the Stone Age.
Although legendary rockers Guns N' Roses are still fronted by Axl Rose the rest of the original line-up - including guitarist Slash - will NOT be performing. They have been replaced by a completely new band.
