Guns N' Roses classic line-up to headline two UK festivals in 2017
The original Guns N' Roses line-up are reportedly set to play two UK festivals in two years' time.
Loaded claims that an insider source has said the original band line-up will headline the Isle Of Wight and Download festival in 2017.
It's believed that a comeback tour won’t happen for another two years to allow Rose and Slash complete all their existing commitments.
Rose apparently wants to play more gigs in 2016 to show some loyalty to his existing bandmates, who have toured under the Guns N’ Roses name ever since guitarist Slash and fellow original members Duff McKagan and Steven Adler left during the 1990s.
It is also thought that the band have ruled out any plans to headline Glastonbury with the source adding: "The simple truth is that Glastonbury doesn’t pay enough money to its headliners for GN’R to consider playing there. Also, Michael Eavis doesn’t have many hard rock acts at Glastonbury and everyone in the camp wants the comeback to be as hard and heavy as possible."
Rumours that Guns N' Roses will reunite in 2016 recently increased after the band began selling new merchandise that features the group’s original line-up.
