GUNS N' ROSES To Perform At This Year's LOUDER THAN LIFE Festival In September

GUNS N' ROSES is the first act to be announced for the return of Louder Than Life. This year, the festival will be headed to its new home at the Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center on Friday, September 27, Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29.

This will mark the debut of the GUNS N' ROSES lineup at the Louder Than Life festival and is the first appearance for the rock giants since performing in Hawaii in December 2018.

"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," says festival producer Danny Wimmer. "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."

The full Louder Than Life lineup will be announced on Monday, April 8, the same day as tickets go on sale at 9:00 a.m. ET.

GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" tour began in April 2016, and after 159 shows in 41 countries, it played its last date at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 8, 2018.

"Not In This Lifetime" is now believed to be the second-highest-grossing tour of all time, having generated more than $500 million since it began three years ago.

According to Pollstar, "Not In This Lifetime" topped $82 million in sales during 2018 alone, having grossed an average of $3.7 million per show over the course of the 24-date run.

GUNS kicked off its long-rumored and long-awaited reunion tour in April 2016 with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California's Coachella festival.

The "Not In This Lifetime" tour features classic-lineup members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass) and Axl Rose (vocals) backed by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and second keyboardist Melissa Reese.
