Guns N’ Roses to play Sweden Rock

guns2Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan and Dizzy Reed - the reunited Guns N' Roses are coming to Sweden Rock Festival this summer! The show will be their only in Scandinavia on this tour, and one of only three festival appearances in Europe.

 

Guns N' Roses have remained one of the biggest rock bands in the world since their breakthrough with debut album "Appetite for destruction" (1987). It was followed by the Queen-ishly ambitious album duo "Use your illusion 1 & 2" (1991), taking the band's popularity to even greater heights. "Welcome to the jungle", "Sweet child o' mine", "Paradise city", "Nightrain", "You could be mine", "Patience", "Civil war", "Rocket queen", "November rain" - the number of immortal classics that only these men can do justice is endless.

 

Since their 2016 reunion, Guns N' Roses have sold out the biggest stadiums on the planet, including Friends Arena in Stockholm (2017) and Ullevi in Gothenburg (2018). This summer will see the band return to Europe for a short tour and the only stop in the Nordic region on this run will be at the Sweden Rock Festival. This may possibly be the biggest booking in the history of the festival!
