Legendary hard rock band Guns ‘N Roses are to take the final headliner slot at next years Download Fesitval– Joining Avenged Sevenfold & Ozzy Osbourne to complete the lineup.

The massive booking comes after legendary guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan reunited with Axl Rose for the ‘Not In This Lifetime Tour’, which finally made its way to the UK last summer.

Now, they’ll be returning to the UK once more for Download, completing a stellar headline bill for next year’s festival that also features Ozzy Osbourne and Avenged Sevenfold, who were both revealed earlier this week.

Download promoter Andy Copping said “It’s great to have this iconic line up of Guns N’ Roses headlining at Download. I am sure I am not alone when I say I have been wanting this to happen for years.

“It will be an incredible show and will be one of the highlights of the Download weekend.”

Tickets are available to purchase from the Download website.
