Guns N' Roses to Break All Time Record For Concert Size in Iceland

by VVN Music

It's probably not one of the spotlight categories in the Guinness Book of World Records but, this summer, Guns N' Roses will play the biggest concert ever held in Iceland.

The band will play Laugardalsv√∂llur football stadium in Reykjavik on July 24 with the Iceland Monitor reporting that it will take about a week to prepare the stadium for the show. "Thirty-five containers are required to ship equipment to Iceland and 150 staff will accompany the band."

Tickets for the show go on sale on May 1 and start at 18.900 ISK ($187.95 U.S. Dollars), not counting air fare to get to Iceland.

The current edition of Guns N' Roses includes Axl Rose, Duff McKagan, Slash, Dizzy Reed, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer and Melissa Reese. McKagan and Slash returned to the band in 2016 after having left in the mid-90's with the resurrected lineup going on to be one of the biggest concert draws in the world.
