Tickets for Austin City Limits 2019 will go on sale at 6pm BST and will be available from the official festival website.

Gambino’s 2019 headline set comes after the rapper was forced to cancel his 2018 set after injuring his foot on stage in Dallas. The star, who has said he will soon quit touring under the moniker, recently headlined both weekends of Coachella 2019.

Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses are currently working on new material. Speaking in February, bassist Duff McKagan confirmed that he had heard demos frontman Axl Rose has been working on.

“There’s never been a direct schedule on how we do things,” he told Trunk Nation Radio. “I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl has, really cool stuff he’s been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities of that, of course.”

There is currently no confirmed release date for a new Guns N’ Roses album, with McKagan adding that the band’s “day will happen when it happens.”
