Guns N’ Roses to Play First U.S. Show Since 2006


Guns N’ Roses will stage their first official U.S. show in four years on Friday, August 13, closing out the final night of Sturgis, South Dakota’s Rock N’ Rev Festival, to be held during the city’s annual Motorcycle Rally, MTV reports.

The Rock N’ Rev festival is set for August 9-13 at Sturgis’ Monkey Rock USA, and, in addition to lots of leather jackets and bike exhaust, the festival will features performances from Creed, Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots, 3 Doors Down, Cage the Elephant, and others.

Though the festival will be the band’s first official U.S. show since 2006’s Chinese Democracy Tour, the group did play a surprise gig this February for some 150 lucky fans at the Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar in New York City that featured a 90-minute, 16-song set loaded with hits.

Tickets to the Rock N’ Rev festival are currently on sale via Ticketmaster.Day passes are going for $45, and a number of VIP packages are available, some of which include on-site motorcycle parking, allowing fans to “watch the festival from your motorcycle” — Paradise City, indeed!
