Guns n' Roses, Daughtry to Rock 'n Rev Sturgis

Tuesday, July 27, 2010
Making their first U.S. concert appearance in four years – and playing their only U.S. show in 2010 - GUNS N’ ROSES has been officially recruited with DAUGHTRY to join the inaugural ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL and cement its assault on the legendary Sturgis Rally’s 70th Anniversary celebration in Sturgis, SD, at the newly constructed Rock N’ Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA.

Rock n Rev Fest 2010
GUNS N’ ROSES will headline the fifth and final night of the festival, as it moves to the Brand New Rock ‘N Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA in Sturgis, adjacent to its original location. L.A.’s notorious rock ‘n’roll bad boys - one of Q magazine’s “50 Bands to See Before You Die” – have combined forces with HDlogix and DC3 Global for this rare and very special appearance on home soil to bring the “full-out rock 'n' roll spectacle” (Spin) of their 2010 “Chinese Democracy World Tour” to Sturgis and finish off the hijacking of the world’s biggest, baddest biker event, Monday, Aug. 9 through Friday, Aug. 13, 2010.

GUNS N’ ROSES’ final night performance, immediately following previously announced Aug. 13 headliner
Alice in Chains, is the ultimate climax to five full nights of undeniable rock ‘n’ roll bedlam, and now gives the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL six of the most explosive, multi-platinum AMERICAN Active Rock Bands of 2010. DAUGHTRY, supporting its second consecutive #1 album, will join 3 Doors Down, Hinder and others on Aug. 12, the 4th night of the ROCK N’ REV FESTIVAL.

In order to welcome GUNS N’ ROSES and DAUGHTRY to the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL, new festival owners HDlogix and its producers, DC3 Global, are starting construction immediately on the Rock N’ Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA, a new custom-built amphitheater on a 25-acre site at Monkey Rockdesigned to maximize logistical opportunities while enhancing the overall experience for everyone attending –from the bands to the fans.

“We are truly blessed to be able to announce the addition of GUNS N’ ROSES at this historic moment in theband’s history, along with DAUGHTRY, just as we relocate the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL to our own Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA,” said DC3’s co-founder, Daniel E. Catullo III. “Monkey Rock’s vision to create a nationally recognized brand among the world’s top motorcycle rallies is a perfect fit for us, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them as our partners.”

ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL’s relationship with Glencoe Campground is amicable amid the change in logistics. As such, they are working together to arrange special VIP accommodations at the festival for all Glencoe campers that week.

Guns   Roses to play at Sturgis
It's going to be nuts at the Monkey Rock when Guns n' Roses takes the stage for the first time on US soil in four years.
Raising the insanity level to previously unimaginable heights, GUNS N’ ROSES and DAUGHTRY are just the latest high octane multi-platinum rockers to join the growing list of bands at the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL. They unite with fellow headliners Stone Temple Pilots, Godsmack, Creed, Alice in Chains and 3 Doors Down to establish the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL as “The Home of Rock’s Hardest New Chart Toppers” – a different one topping each night’s lineup.

GUNS N’ ROSES has sold more than 110 million albums worldwide, including over 46 million in the United States. The band's 1987 major label debut, Appetite for Destruction, is the highest selling debut album of all time, with sales in excess of 38 million copies worldwide. In addition, it reached No. 1 on the United States Billboard 200 and charted three Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including "Sweet Child o' Mine," the band’s first No. 1 smash. Their 1991 albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II debuted on the two highest spots on the Billboard 200 and have sold a combined 14 million copies in the United States alone and 35 million worldwide. GUNS N’ ROSES’ fusion of punk rock, blues-rock, heavy metal and classic rock ‘n’ roll prompted Ozzy Osbourne to call the band “the next Rolling Stones” and Rolling Stone to include them among their “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.” Earlier this year, Rolling Stone hailed the Canadian leg of their “Chinese Democracy” tour as “a high-energy three-hour marathon of new material and classic GNR hits.”

For nearly three years, the only thing keeping pace with the growing number of miles on DAUGHTRY’s tour bus has been the band’s list of achievements. After charting three #1 songs from its five-time platinum debut and spending more than two years on the road, Daughtry released Leave This Town (19/RCA). The album entered at the top of the Billboard 200, making it the band’s second #1 album. The album’s first single, “No Surprise,” extended the group’s extraordinary streak of #1 singles to four. The third and current single, "September," continues to climb steadily on radio charts, approaching the Top 10. Recently, Daughtry completed its hugely successful, first-ever headlining arena tour, which began last summer. The ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL is just one of the group’s select U.S. dates this summer. The massive production adds another dimension to the band’s electrifying stage presence and musicianship, with a unique stage design showcasing album artwork by legendary comic book artist Jim Lee, which was featured in the Leave This Town album packaging.

With an unrivaled lineup of 20 bands over five nights and spectacular fireworks displays each night at Monkey Rock USA, the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL promises to be the hands-down largest party ever thrown at the world’s largest motorcycle event, which annually draws over a half million patrons. World famous showman Jim Rose and his circus are set to emcee the five-day event and help give attendees a show they will never forget.

ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL’s sweltering lineup also includes Three Days Grace, Hellyeah, Cage The Elephant, Theft, Sweet Cyanide, Charm City Devils, Rev Theory, Eagles of Death Metal, The Darling Stilettos (featuring former GNR drummer Matt Sorum), Pop Evil, Skillet, and Swayback -- just some of the bands making massive music at this colossal biker bash.

Everything about the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL will appeal to the “leather and chrome” sensibilities in everyone who attends…from those who embody the biker lifestyle to the more casually minded weekend warriors and their families. The Vendor Village will be overflowing with an assortment of food, clothing, gear and other accessories, top tattoo artists and the best barbeque and related cooking specialists from the nation’s sauciest hotspots such as Austin, Memphis, Chicago, and New Orleans. The overall Mardi Gras atmosphere will recall some of Europe’s top festivals, with a decidedly American flair. After all, biking and rock ‘n’ roll are two of America’s greatest heritages.
