While it looks like the first few months of 2019 will be quiet for Guns N’ Roses, they have announced their first live appearance, and it will take place in September at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville.
Of course, this is not to say that other shows might not come up in the next few months, but the Louder festival takes place Sept. 27, 28 and 29. The festival’s producer Danny Wimmer stated in a press release, “There are only a handful of bands through the years whose music not only resonates with fans but changes the entire face of rock ‘n’ roll.” Wimmer continued, “Guns N’ Roses is one of those true icons. Every year we want to come back bigger and better, and we can’t wait to welcome Axl, Slash, Duff to the Louder Than Life stage.”
The rest of the Louder Then Life lineup will be announced on April 8, the same day tickets go on sale. Further information can be found at the festival’s website.
Guns N’ Roses last show of 2018 was in Honolulu. It was part of their monumentally successful ‘Not in This Lifetime’ reunion tour that brought together Slash, Axl Rose and Duff Mckagan. Since that Honolulu date, Slash has been touring with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and Duff McKagan has been promoting his solo album, ‘Tenderness,’ which will be released on May 31st.
The rumours of a new group album have also been in the news. If it does happen, it would be the first to include Slash and McKagan since the 1993 covers album ‘The Spaghetti Incident?’
