GUNS N' ROSES Confirmed For ROCK 'N REV FESTIVAL

Making its first U.S. concert appearance in four years — and playing its only U.S. show in 2010 — GUNS N' ROSES has been officially recruited with DAUGHTRY to join the inaugural Rock 'N Rev Festival and cement its assault on the legendary Sturgis Rally's 70th-anniversary celebration in Sturgis, South Dakota, at the newly constructed Rock N' Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA.

GUNS N' ROSES will headline the fifth and final night of the festival, as it moves to the Brand New Rock 'N Rev Amphitheaterat Monkey Rock USA in Sturgis, adjacent to its original location. L.A.'s notorious rock 'n' roll bad boys have combined forces with HDlogix and DC3 Global for this rare and very special appearance on home soil to bring the "full-out rock 'n' roll spectacle" (Spin) of their 2010 "Chinese Democracy World Tour" to Sturgis and finish off the hijacking of the world's biggest, baddest biker event, Monday, August 9 through Friday, August 13, 2010.

GUNS N' ROSES' final night performance, immediately following previously announced August 13 headliner ALICE IN CHAINS, is the ultimate climax to five full nights of undeniable rock 'n' roll bedlam, and now gives the Rock 'N Rev Festival six of the most explosive, multi-platinum American Active Rock Bands of 2010. DAUGHTRY, supporting its second consecutive #1 album, will join 3 DOORS DOWN, hinder and others on Aug. 12, the fourth night of the Rock N' Rev Festival.

In order to welcome GUNS N' ROSES and DAUGHTRY to the Rock 'N Rev Festival, new festival owners HDlogix and its producers, DC3 Global, are starting construction immediately on the Rock N' Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA, a new custom-built amphitheater on a 25-acre site at Monkey Rock designed to maximize logistical opportunities while enhancing the overall experience for everyone attending — from the bands to the fans.

Story continues after advertisement

"We are truly blessed to be able to announce the addition of GUNS N' ROSES at this historic moment in the band's history, along with DAUGHTRY, just as we relocate the Rock 'N Rev Festival to our own amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA," said DC3's co-founder, Daniel E. Catullo III. "Monkey Rock's vision to create a nationally recognized brand among the world's top motorcycle rallies is a perfect fit for us, and we couldn't be more excited to welcome them as our partners."

Rock 'N Rev Festival's relationship with Glencoe Campground is amicable amid the change in logistics. As such, they are working together to arrange special VIP accommodations at the festival for all Glencoe campers that week.
