GUNS N’ ROSES‘ June 2012 performance at London, England’s O2 Arena will be broadcast on VH1 Classic on March 9 as part of a five-hour GN’R special. The night will kick off at 8:00 p.m. with a one-hour, all-GUNS N’ ROSES video block hosted by “That Metal Show”‘s Eddie Trunk, followed by the London concert and a rebroadcast of the Axl Rose “That Metal Show” episode.
The big-screen premiere of GUNS N’ ROSES‘ 2012 performance at O2 Arena was scheduled for last October at select theaters in Europe but was “postponed” by the band’s management.
A trailer for the concert film, which promised to show the grand finale of the band’s U.K. tour in “stunning” HD quality and Surround Sound, can be seen below.
GUNS N’ ROSES has been added to The Governer’s Ball festival, set to take place June 7-9 on Randall’s Island in New York City. They join the likes of KANYE WEST, KINGS OF LEON, GRIZZLY BEAR, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, KENDRICK LAMAR and many others.
