GUNS N' ROSES To Play ROCK IN RIO Festival?
According to Brazilian journalist Ancelmo Gois, who publishes a column at influential newspaper O Globo, GUNS N' ROSES will likely perform at this year's Rock In Rio festival. Roberto Medina, the event's organizer, allegedly spoke last week with the band's frontman, Axl Rose, and is expected to announce GN'R's participation in the festival later today (Sunday, March 20).
GUNS N' ROSES performed at the second and third editions of Rock In Rio, in 1991 and 2001, respectively.
The 2011 Rock In Rio festival will take place September 23 - October 2 in "The City Of Rock" in Olympic Park, Barra da Tijuca/Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Bands that are confirmed to perform at the event include ANGRA, COHEED AND CAMBRIA, METALLICA, MOTÖRHEAD, SEPULTURA and SLIPKNOT.
The Rock In Rio festivals are massive events, drawing millions of people and a diverse roster of local and international artists.
