This is just the most random fucking thing. I mean yeah I understand they gotta cater to the older crowd somehow but like... why GNR? Now it's basically just Crazy Axl Rose and a bunch of random dudes that aren't Slash.

Motley Crue was incredible at Boozle 2011. More like Bret Michaels Bamboozle 08's performance. Even Coheed couldn't save it.

You would think they would pick someone who's ability to appear and play dates they're supposed to is so volatile.

Could have picked a better 3rd headliner, but I'm still excited to watch Guns n Roses. Its a nostalgia act that will turn into a drunken singalong. And I'm sure their lights/pyro show will be insane.

If you want a good laugh go to the governors ball facebook page. Its being littered with whiney hipster kids demanding their money back. Its friggin one band out of a 70+ lineup lol

Pointless to pick them to draw a potential older crowd/more ticket buyers. Anyone is who was already planning on going doesn't give a shit about G'N'R and anybody who DOES has probably already seen this sorry excuse for a "band" do their pathetic victory lap in the past 3-4 years.
