Guns N' Roses Confirms First Live Date Of 2019

Guns N' Roses is the first act to be announced for the return of the Louder Than Life festival. The event will take place at the Highland Festival Grounds At KY Expo Center from Friday, September 27th, through Sunday, September 29th. This will mark the first live appearance for Guns since they played in Hawaii in December 2018.

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

Guns N' Roses' "Not In This Lifetime" tour began three years ago in April 2016, and after 159 shows in 41 countries, it played its last date at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 8th, 2018. The trek is now believed to be the second-highest-grossing tour of all time, having earned more than $500 million since it launched.

Since the end of the tour last year, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have both returned to solo endeavors. There has been speculation that Guns N' Roses will record a new LP, but no official announcement has been made yet.
