Guns n’ Roses Louder Than Life, Festival Grounds at the KY Expo Center.
If this isn’t the biggest news you read all week, we don’t know what is. Guns N’ Roses have been announced as one of the main headlining acts for this year’s Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, Ky. Produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, the three-day rock and metal festival will be Sept. 27 through 29 at the Highland Festival Grounds at the KY Expo Center.
Louder than Life is Guns N’ Roses’ first official performance in 2019. Their highly anticipated Not In This Lifetime reunion with original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan began in April 2016 in Los Angeles, Calif. and finished in Dec. 2018 in Honolulu. Hawaii. Consisting of 159 shows in 41 countries, the tour is the second highest grossing concert tour in history, reeling in around $563.3 million.
Though Slash has been on the road with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators for a few months in support of his 2018 album Living the Dream and Duff McKagan is releasing a solo album sometime in the next few months, Guns N’ Roses’ website confirmed that they will still be hitting the road together in the future. “We are not done yet…shits just getting started.”
“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,” said 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 Festival lineup will be revealed on Monday April 8. Tickets will go on sale at 9AM that same day.
