Guns N Roses were reportedly paid a huge £5million for their headline set at last weekend’s Download Festival 2018.

The returning hard rock veterans’ took their ‘Not In This Lifetime’ Tour to Donington Park where they played alongside the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Marilyn Manson, Avenged Sevenfold, BABYMETAL and many more.

However, The Daily Mirror reports that Download boss and promoter Andy Copping paid more for Axl Rose and co than he has for any other act in the festival’s history.

“He paid Guns £5million for the set and that’s the most he’s ever done,” a source claimed.

This comes after it emerged that the band’s rider also included a demand for a porcelain toilet and ‘super silky smooth toilet paper‘.

“When organisers of Download got Guns N’ Roses’ requests they were gobsmacked,” a source claimed. “It is the biggest rider the festival has ever seen, they have never seen anything like it. But they made sure it was exactly as they wanted.”

This month will also see the band release the anniversary reissue of the classic ‘Appetite For Destruction‘.

Available in a variety of new formats featuring five discs, seven LP’s, seven 7″, the  new release is a almighty 73 tracks long, with 49 of them being previously unreleased songs.

Guns N’ Roses will re-release ‘Appetite For Destruction’ on June 29.
