Guns N' Roses Added to 2013 Governors Ball Headliners

The legendary rock band joins previously-announced summer fest headliners, Kanye West and Kings of Leon.

Iconic rock band becomes the third headlining act for this year's Governors Ball Music Festival in Randall's Island, New York City. The -fronted hard rock band joins hip-hop superstar and Grammy-winning rock band for the June 7 to 9 music fest.

"We're stoked to be performing at the Governors Ball!" announced Rose via a press release. "We're all really excited in GNR to be part of this festival, and with such talented and diverse acts in what looks to be a great weekend!!"

The scheduled performance marks GN'R's first major U.S. gig since the band completed their 12-show Las Vegas, Nevada residency "Appetite for Democracy" at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino back in November. Their forthcoming Governors Ball appearance follows an unpleasant experience they had while playing at the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festival, where their set was cut short after being booed by the crowd when they showed up late for the gig.

Other top acts set to perform are folk rock band , rapper , hip-hop diva , neo-soul artist , British indie rock quartet , rapper , English indie rock band and Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter . Numerous other musical acts complete the packed lineup which was officially announced last January 22 via a three-minute video clip.
