Guns N’ Roses to play London

Axl Rose's band return for an intimate summer show

Guns N’Roses have announced a very special one-off date in the UK as a warm up for their appearance at this year’s Download Festival.

The band will return to London Hammersmith Apollo on June 7 for their first show at the venue in almost 20 years.

Last time they performed at the indoor venue was during their ‘Appetite For Destruction’ tour under G N’R‘s original line-up in 1987.

The gig will be Guns N’ Roses first in the UK since they performed at the London Arena on August 26 2002.

Tickets for the show are priced £37.50 and will go on sale on Friday May 19 at 9am.

Support will come from Californian rockers Avenged Sevenfold.
