Rock outfit the Foo Fighters have been drafted in to replace troubled group GUNS N' ROSES as headliners at the ROCK IN RIO festival this summer (04).

The THIS IS A CALL band will take to the stage on 30 May at Portugal's Bela Vista Parque after Axl Rose's rockers were forced to cancel their appearance.

Furious Rose explained to fans that guitarist BUCKETHEAD's recent departure had left Guns unable to play. If they had appeared, the SWEET CHILD O' MINE hitmakers would have been the first act ever to play three times at the festival.
