After months of speculation, American hard rockers Guns 'N Roses are headed back to Israel for the first time since 1993. However, it will be a vastly changed lineup that will headline the Summer Rock 2012 show at Hayarkon Park on July 3 along with support acts Ugly Joe Kid and local favorites Hayehudim.

Frontman Axl Rose is the only member still in the volatile band which has become somewhat of a poster child for rock & roll excess.

Rose spent years working on the band's album Chinese Democracy, which was eventually released in 2008 and despite going platinum, was considered by staunch fans to be a steep drop from the band's heyday when it included charismatic guitarist Slash.
