Making their first US concert appearance in four years – and playing their only US 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.

Guns N' Roses will headline the fifth and final night of the festival, as it moves to the brand new Rock ‘N Rev Amphitheaterat Monkey Rock USA in Sturgis, adjacent to its original location.

L.A.’s notorious rock ‘n’ roll bad boys have combined forces withHDlogix and DC3 Global for this rare and very special appearance on home soil to bring the full-out rock 'n' roll spectacl of their 2010 Chinese Democracy World Tour to Sturgis and finish off the hijacking of the world’s biggest, baddest biker event, Monday, August 9th through Friday, August 13th.

Guns N' Roses’ final night performance, immediately following previously announced August 13th 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 August 12th, 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 Rock designed 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 the band’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.

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.

Tickets for the Rock 'N Rev Festival are $45 per day, general admission ($150 for a five-day pass), and on sale now through and and at all Ticketmaster locations, or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Tickets also will be available in person beginning August 5th, 2010 on location at the Festival’s on-site box office.
