Guns N’ Roses is the first act to join this years ‘Louder Than Life’ music festival lineup. Singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan are the first act announced for the event.


The group will perform between September 27 and September 29 at the Highland Festival Grounds in Louisville, Kentucky.

“Every year we want to come back bigger and better, and we can’t wait to welcome Axl, Slash, Duff and the rest of GN’R to the Louder Than Life stage,” Louder Than Life producer Danny Wimmer said in a statement, to Rolling Stone.

The band shared their own tweet announcing the performance.

The band completed their Not In This Lifetime tour back in December, which marked their first time the three performed together since the Use Your Illusion tour in 1993.

“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. Guns N’ Roses is one of those true icons,” Wimmer said.

The festival will announce its full lineup on Monday, April 8, and tickets will go on sale at 9:00 a.m. ET the same day.
