GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist BUMBLEFOOT To Perform With India's POINT OF VIEW In Calcutta

According to The Telegraph, GUNS N' ROSES lead guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal will headline The Festival Chapter III concert at Nazrul Mancha in Calcutta, India on June 15. He will play a special set with the Dubai-based melodic hard rock band POINT OF VIEW (POV).

After touring India with GUNS N' ROSES last December, the country is "starting to feel like home" for Ron, the guitarist told The Telegraph.

"This will be my first [time performing] in Calcutta… I look forward to seeing everyone very soon," he said.

POINT OF VIEW previously performed with Ron last year at the launch event for its album "Revolutionize The Revolutionary".

"It was an overwhelming experience… just [Ron's] presence was enough," POINT OF VIEW drummer Chiradeep Lahiri, who left Calcutta for Dubai in 2009, told The Telegraph. "I'm excited and looking forward to performing in my hometown."
