Guns N' Roses to play gig at Sydney 500 V8 Supercars street race

Recommended Posts

LEGENDARY rockers Guns N' Roses have agreed to make just their second trip to Australia since 1993 - to appear at this year's Sydney 500 V8 Supercars street race.

Frontman Axl Rose last night confirmed the band will perform a one-off gig on Saturday, December 4, at ANZ Stadium, following the weekend's first event around the Olympic Park circuit.

"To mix Guns with this massive Sydney event will be a blast," Rose said.

"We will be in Europe just before we head to Sydney so it will be great to come out and chill around Australia for a while, spend a bit of time getting around and soaking up the relaxed Aussie vibe.

"When we came back in 2007 it had been about 14 years between tours in Australia and we had a complete ball.

"Bring on Sydney and the V8 Supercars. Hopefully I can get a ride in one of those big beasts while I'm there."

Famous for hit 1990s singles Sweet Child Of Mine, November Rain and You Could Be Mine, the US bad boys are expected to lift this year's total gate well above the 184,000 that attended the first-up event last December.

Acting Premier John Hatzistergos is scheduled to make an official announcement today and is confident interstate fans will flock to Sydney for the band's only East Coast performance.

It's believed V8 Supercars officials are paying Guns N' Roses more than $1 million to perform the solitary gig, included in the $91 price of Saturday's admission.
