The rock legends confirm their personnel for their firs show in over seven years...

Guns N' Roses' management have confirmed details of their line-up for the band's tour next year.

G N' R play their first gig in more than seven years at the Rock In Rio festival in Brazil in January, and their management has issued a statement, according to reports on www.sonicnet.com, confirming that Robin Finck - who recorded with them for two years before returning to his former band, Nine Inch Nails - and avant-garde guitarist [b]Buckethead will be on axe duty in the live line-up. Sources close to the band added that ex-Primus sticksman Bryan "Brain" Mantia would join them.

It has previously been reported that new members would also include Tommy Stinson on bass and Dizzy Reed on keyboards, lining up behind Axl Rose. They are to headline the third day of the seven-day festival, the first live appearance for Rose under the Guns N' Roses banner for over seven years.

In addition, Pink Floyd and Alice Cooper producer Bob Ezrin has been drafted in to assist on their new album 'Chinese Democracy', which has so far been five years in the making.
