Guns N’ Roses wrapped their years-long ‘Not In This Lifetime” tour in December 2018, but they’ll play at least one show in 2019.

GN’R has just been announced as the first headliner for the Louder Than Life festival taking place September 27-29 in Louisville, Ky. at the Highland Festival Ground at KY Expo Center.

“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 in a statement. “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.”

More acts for the Louder Than Life festival will be announced on April 8, which is the same day tickets go on sale.
