GUNS N' ROSES, ALICE IN CHAINS To Play Longer Sets At GRASPOP; Live Video Feed Available

The organizers of Belgium's Graspop Metal Meeting — which is taking place June 23-25 in Dessel — have posted the following message on the festival's official web site:

"Last week, when Graspop was informed that KORN would be cancelling their European tour, the search for a worthy replacement was underway within hours. Unfortunately it's next to impossible to find a band of the same calibre as KORN on such short notice. Graspop negotiated with TOOL, DEFTONES, LIFE OF AGONY and MACHINE HEAD, but none of these bands were able to confirm their visit to GMM2006. As a result, GUNS N' ROSES will take the stage a bit sooner and play a longer set! Other bands like MY DYING BRIDE and ALICE IN CHAINS will also play a slightly longer set."

As previously reported, some of the Graspop Metal Meeting performances are currently available for viewing online a live Internet video stream at this location (BLOODSIMPLE have just left the stage).
