Guns N' Roses will headline Download Festival, alongside the previously announced Ozzy Osbourne and Avenged Sevenfold.

The three-day festival takes place between 8th and 10th June 2018 at the spiritual home of Metal in Donington Park, Leicestershire. Tickets are available now right here.

On the road since April 2016 and over a hundred shows later, the resurgent Guns N' Roses are back and coming to Download Festival.

Reuniting last year for the first time since 1993, the inimitable Axl Rose, guitar legend Slash and original bassist Duff McKagan, plus Dizzy Reed, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer and Melissa Reese have been blowing audiences away worldwide on the aptly named 'Not In This Lifetime' Tour and will stop by Donington on the Saturday night for their first UK Festival appearance of the (almost) classic line-up on legendary form after selling a million tickets across Europe in 2017 alone.

Download Festival 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!"

Last week Download Festival revealed that The Prince Of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, will be headlining the Sunday night and one of the world's biggest rock bands, Avenged Sevenfold, will be headlining the Friday night. Guns N' Roses complete the 2018 line-up and will headline the Saturday night.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
