Axl Rose and whoever he is playing with these days have been confirmed to play the massive rock festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

It is official, Guns N' Roses will be joining the lineup for this years Rock In Rio.  The band has played the rock fest before in 1991 and 2001.  They will be joining Metallica, Slipknot, Motorhead, Coheed and Cambria, Sepultura and more.  The festival will be October 2.

Your guess is as good as mine if Axl will even show up.  At this point he is basically fronting a Guns cover band in my opinion.  Axl is the only original member left.  Even rocks craziest guitarist Bucket Head doesn't want anything to do with the band, he left in 2004.  I do think it's a bit odd that current Guns and Sixx AM guitarist DJ Ashba wears a top hat on stage from time to time.  I believe there is a better, more successful former Guns guitar player that has been doing that for years.
