Guns N' Roses are set to be supported by Otherkin during Not In This Lifetime Tour.
GUNS N' ROSES are set to be supported by Otherkin during Not In This Lifetime Tour.
The rock band are reportedly set to be accompanied by the 'Ay Ay' vocalists, as well as Mark Langean and Royal Blood when they take to the stage at their sold-out gig at Slane Castle in the Republic of Ireland on May 27, which will mark the group's first return after 25 years.
And Lord Henry Mountcharles, who is known for setting up a variety of concerts at his home, is ''delighted'' with the line-up next month, the Belfast Telegraph has reported.

Already more than an hour late on stage in Melbourne, G'n'R compounded their folly when they shouted "Sydney!" when they finally arrived.
Reformed rock legends Guns N’ Roses were greeted with heckling and booing from an audience in Melbourne this week, as they took to the stage more than an hour late and got the name of the city totally wrong.
The American rock act are in the middle of the Asia / Oceania leg of their extensive Not In This Lifetime tour, which sees the so-called ‘classic line-up’ members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan sharing a stage for the first time since 1993.
However, when they called in at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday night (February 14th), they arrived late and greeted the crowd by shouting ‘Sydney’. Oops.

The band return to the UK for the first time in over two decades.
The recently reformed GUNS N' ROSES have announced a bunch of new dates for their Not In This Lifetime tour next year, with the event spanning North America, Europe and Asia. They have been on the road a lot already this year, playing throughout North and South America and singer Axl Rose breaking off for a spell to front AC/DC on their tour.
Guns N' Roses embark on a worldwide tour
The tour includes their first appearance in the UK since 1993 and it also looks like they'll be in Europe and unoccupied on June 25th; that's the last day of Glastonbury Festival for those who didn't spot it straight away. Could they be the Sunday night headliners? It would certainly make sense after their stellar set at Coachella back in April.

Stradlin took to Twitter to say that Axl and the band "didn't want to split the loot equally".
Having marked himself out as the only original member of Guns N’ Roses not to participate in the current reunion, guitarist Izzy Stradlin has drawn speculation from Gunners fans as to why he’s refused to play along.
Finally, he’s broken his silence on social media by replying to lead singer Axl Rose’s comments last week, saying that the financial split for the tour wasn’t satisfactory for him.
Rose had told a Brazilian TV station on Tuesday, ahead of Guns N’ Roses’ string of South American tour dates, that 54 year old Stradlin just wasn’t up for it, and didn’t go into details except to imply that he was disorganised and unreliable.

The revelry was just too much for some people.
GUNS N' ROSES fans in New Jersey had one heck of a party at the MetLife Stadium show on Saturday night (July 23rd 2016). In fact, at least 30 of them left the venue in handcuffs following a variety of arrests from solicitation to drug possession.
Guns N' Roses fans arrested in New Jersey
The Guns N' Roses 'Not In This Lifetime' tour is probably one of the most exciting band reunions ever, so it's no wonder people are letting the fun go to their heads. As Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan return to arenas, 30 people are forced to spend some time at the police station.

Guns N' Roses were detained at the Canadian border last week for gun possession but they're adamant the weapon didn't belong to them.
GUNS N' ROSES were detained at the Canadian border last week after they were caught with a gun in their possession.
The hard rock band were stopped at the airport in Toronto last Friday (15.07.16) ahead of their gig later that day in the city in Ontario, and found with the weapon on them.
Frontman Axl Rose later told the audience at the gig held at the Rogers Centre: ''We weren't exactly arrested. We were detained. They [the custom officers] were very nice, they were very understanding. You know, it happens: You can forget you have a fucking gun. It wasn't my gun.''

The Guns ’n’ Roses singer is filling in for departed frontman Brian Johnson.
AC/DC have confirmed that Guns N' Roses' singer Axl Rose will be fronting the band for the remaining dates on their latest world tour. Rose has recently reunited with his former Guns 'n' Roses bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan for a string of gigs including a headline slot at this weekend’s Coachella festival.
Axl Rose will front AC/DC for the reminder of their tour dates.
In a statement AC/DC said: "AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band over the years. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we support Brian's decision to save his hearing. “

The cities, but not the dates, have been announced.
One of this century's biggest musical reunions is set to arrive this year as GUNS N' ROSES confirm 21 tour dates in a short teaser video, with a line-up that rejoins guitarist Slash and singer Axl Rose for the first time in 23 years. The new dates are in addition to their upcoming appearance at Coachella in April.
Guns N' Roses hit the road again
We knew Axl Rose, Slash and bassist Duff McKagan were doing at least one reunion show this year as the Coachella news had already been announced, but it seems they are extending their tenure this year with no less than 21 further dates. However, we're still waiting on the actual details; the only information they have released is a 15 minute video on their site yesterday (March 25th 2016) featuring the names of US cities where they will be playing. It also plays a snippet of their song 'Patience', worryingly taken from an album entitled 'G N' R Lies' but we're trying not to think about that.

The three main headliners might be booked, but there's always 'secret gigs' and surprise guests...
It’s that time of year again: the annual rumour mill of who is going to be making appearances at Glastonbury, plausible or otherwise. Although the three Pyramid Stage headliners have been revealed – Muse on Friday, Adele on Saturday, and Coldplay rounding things off on Sunday – there are literally several hundred other slots to be filled on the numerous other stages.
The Sunday afternoon ‘legends slot’ has also already been confirmed, with ELO set to entertain the crowds. However, there are always rumours flying around during the festival itself as to who’s going to be making low-key, surprise appearances. The reformed Libertines did so last year, appearing at the Pyramid Stage. So, are there any major names that might do this in 2016?

The Guns 'N' Roses frontman is reportedly poised to replace Brian Johnson as the AC/DC 'Rock Or Bust' tour resumes.
With their lead singer Brian Johnson sidelined with immediate effect because of his hearing problems, AC/DC are now reportedly considering inviting Guns ‘N’ Roses’ frontman Axl Rose to step in and provide lead vocals when their North American tour resumes.
In a report by Alternative Nation, a radio DJ from Atlanta named Jason Bailey claims that a “very very good source” has told him that the legendary rockers will recruit the controversial Gunners singer Rose for the remainder of their North American tour dates, having flown him to the US city to audition with them.

Are Axl Rose and Slash finally ready to bury the hatchet and perform together again?
Rumours of a Guns N Roses reunion have certainly been heating up recently and according to reports it’s officially on, with the band set to play next year’s Coachella festival. According to Billboard, multiple sources have confirmed that the band will headline next year’s festival, with founding members Axl Rose and Slash sharing a stage for the first time in over 20 years.
Are Guns N Roses set for next year’s Coachella festival?
Billboard reports that the band will headline the annual festival in Indio, California, which is set for April 15-17 and April 22-24. The reunited band is also said to be negotiating with promoters to play as many as 25 football stadiums across North America in the summer of 2016.

Need outfit ideas for your next night out? Nick Cage has got it covered.
Ironic shirts with Nicolas Cage’s face are apparently a thing now, so the actor is taking it to another level. How about Nick Cage wearing a shirt with Nick Cage’s face on it? Insert dated Inception joke here.
The actor/national treasure was also rocking a blue jacket, cowboy hat, a pair of shiny, shiny sunglasses and what looks like several strings of Mardi Gras beads, while attending a Guns’n’Roses concert. It’s the most 90s thing you’re ever going to see (this week).
Kings of Leon played a brand new song from their forthcoming sixth album Mechanical Bull during a rescheduled Governors Ball Music Festival set in New York.
'Sex On Fire' rockers Kings Of Leon performed at Saturday's (8th June) rescheduled Governors Ball - a festival on New York's Randall Island - in rather wet and windy conditions.
Their Friday festival appearance had been cancelled due to severe weather conditions but fans were relieved to learn of the rescheduled Saturday set, ahead of GUNS N' ROSES' headlining, in what was their first live concert in NYC for three years.
As fans slipped about whilst trying to dance in the mud, frontman Caleb Followill introduced the new song: "We're gonna play a new song we've never played before, so if we mess it up it's your fault."
Band play arena-sized gig in bowling alley-sized venue
Guns N’ Roses are usually known for two things these days: playing really really large places and turning up really really late to play them. So a bit of a surprise then to discover that Axel Rose and the gang turned all those pre-conceptions on their head in a Brooklyn Bowling Alley by, um, playing it.
It wasn’t quite the perfect game from Rose and co, as they turned up 15 minutes late on stage – but heck even that’s pretty excellent by their standards. The band played a special event at the Governors’ Ball gig at the Brooklyn Bowl to punters who’d paid $150 for the privilege and Rose was in his usual detached, holier-than-thou mood, wearing a fedora on stage that might possibly have been ill-advised.
No matter though because Guns N’ Roses brought the hits! Oh boy did they, including Welcome To The Jungle, Sweet Child O’ Mine and –well – you don’t need us to write out their list of hits, you know them all. The room was tiny but that didn’t stop Guns N’ Roses attempt to make the same amount of noise as if they were playing one of the country’s largest stadiums, the reverberations probably giving them a whole score board’s worth of strikes without even bowling a ball (and there was none of that allowed either while they were on stage.) According to MTV, the biggest surprise was how professionally it all ran, the band ripping through their set, in spite of all the solos (all three guitarist got one.) Impressive stuff.

In distinct contrast to his normal behaviour Axl Rose was a) on time and b) giving an interview, with Jimmy Kimmel. The GUNS N' ROSES front man hasn't given a live TV interview for 20 years, but now that he has a 12 date residency at The Joint at Hard Rock in Las Vegas is more than happy to do a little promo in aid of the performances.
Perla Hudson, the wife of ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, was disappointed by the interview and quipped about it in an interview with Us Weekly. She, like many other fans, was probably hoping for a more in-depth and revealing interview, rather than the brief and amusing chat with Kimmel that ultimately barely scratched the surface of Axl's interesting life and even more interesting psyche. "I was waiting for something enlightening and all I got was promotion for a show and his evident affinity for a chili burger," Hudson said. "Where is the love Axl? And I stayed up for this? Sex, drugs and chili dogs. Long live Axl Rose. And a Halloween tree." Fixating on his weight, she said he has "evidently [had] way too many Tommy's chili burgers!" We can't disagree, he really is looking like a bit of a porker these days, in contrast to his high cheek boned and chiselled days of the early 90s.
Ah well, Axl turned 50 years old earlier this year, so gaining a few pounds is pretty much par for the course in middle age. In the interview he also expressed apathetic support for Obama, but that despite 'leaning' towards the Democrats, he won't be voting. A little odd given that his residency is titled "An Appetite For Democracy". Apathy, political contradictions and piling on the pounds, let's put it all down to creative licence. He's Axl Rose, he can do what he likes. The Guns N' Roses residency will begin on Wednesday 31st October 2012, with 11 futher days until November 24th of the same year.
Axl Rose gave his first interview for 20 years on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and was kind enough to give the lucky audience some free tickets for his 12-date stint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Gigwise reports.
"I think we got some tickets under the people's seats. There should be two sets of tickets if you reach under your seats," Rose told Kimmel, which lead an excited audience to delve under their seats to find, you guessed it, tickets. This was an incredibly rare appearance from Rose on television, and this was plain to see as the studio audience had to be calmed down by Kimmel when he entered the stage. His previous public outings have been shrouded in controversy, and his unpredictable personality has become somewhat of a USP, but Mr. Rose, now a family man, was calm and collected as he took to the couch circuit with consummate ease.
The normally grumpy Axl Rose seemed pretty cheerful indeed as he appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, and as well he might! After all, this was the first televised interview the notorious front man of ageing rock and rollers Guns N’ Roses had given in more than 20 years. Rose was surprisingly smooth in the role as guest, and even kept his cheerful demeanour when Kimmel likened him to Santa Claus. That must be some sized dressing they’d put up for him backstage.
That said, Kimmel largely avoided the long, long list of things he could’ve asked Rose, such as, y’know, his embittered relationship with his former guitarist Slash, or his decision to reject his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction and then subsequently apologise for his no show, nor indeed what Guns N’ Roses were planning next. Kimmel might as well have just asked him “So, Axl, how are you?” and have that be that.
However, he did take the ribbing he got well, and in a moment that really did make him seem like Santa Claus, he puts Guns N’ Roses tickets under certain audience members seats, as well bringing along a burger truck and giving everyone gift certificates! Oh, and the title of this story? It’s because he told Kimmel that he “would lean Obama” in the upcoming election, though he quantified this by saying that he and most of California tend not to vote. So there you go then, Axl Rose: not quite as monstrous as we thought. See for yourself below (complete with amusing Halloween anecdote):

The wife of former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan is currently involved in a police investigation after her wedding ring was supposedly stolen by a Beverly Hills jeweller.
Duff Mckagan - former GUNS N' ROSES bassist - is caught up in a scandal after his wife, Susan Holmes, filed a report against a jeweller for stealing her wedding ring. Holmes visited the Beverly Hills jeweller Yossi Dina in 2004 to get some of her jewellery valued, and after the wedding ring was reportedly lost, Dina supposedly promised that it would be paid for.
According to swimsuit model Holmes, the jeweller took in the ring and promised to replace it, but never got back to her about the missing ring. In an interview with American scandal show 'Celebrity Justice', Holmes said that: "I gave him the ring to just quickly take a look at. Finally he came back to me and said, 'You know what? I don't know where your ring is, we lost it...' He said, 'Don't worry, we'll pay you for it.'"
