Axl Rose, the lead singer of American legendary hard-rock band Guns N’ Roses arrived in Israel on Monday, ahead of the group’s one-off performance in Hayarkon Park on Tuesday.
Rumors of an Israeli stop of a GNR tour have been circulating nearly annually since the band’s last Israel show – their now legendary 1993 show in Tel Aviv, part of their Use Your Illusion tour, which took place in the same venue.
In addition to Guns N’ Roses, the bands Ugly Kid Joe and the popular Israeli rock band Hayehudim will also perform at the concert.
In 2008, a somewhat depleted new version of Guns N’ Roses released the band’s first album in 15 years, Chinese Democracy, which was certified platinum in the U.S. in 2009.
