Guns N’ Roses will headline British Summer Time in Hyde Park om 30 June to mark the 10th anniversary of the festival. This will be the first time the classic rock band have performed at BST, and is one of three UK shows they will play this summer.

Axl Rose and co will be joined at the festival by The Pretenders, The Darkness and Larkin Poe, with further acts to be announced soon.

Guns N’ Roses’ summer tour will end at BST, after a headline show at Glastonbury Festival and at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow. When the group announced their summer dates, they also said that there would be “more news and surprises soon”, a statement which has led many fans to believe that new music could be on the way.

Meanwhile, The Pretenders are hitting the road this spring. The Relentless tour – see dates below – is named after the band’s 12th studio album, which is due to land at some point later this year. The upcoming album follows their last LP, 2020’s Hate For Sale.

The tour will be bookended by festival dates with appearances at The Great Escape, Brighton on 12 May and Bearded Theory festival, which takes place between 25th – 28th May at Catton Hall in Derbyshire. the band will also appear at Kite Festival in Kirtlington Park, Oxfordshire, on Sunday 11th June, and the Black Deer Festival in Kent on Saturday 17th June.
