Are the reunited $117 million taking band Guns 'n' Roses bound for a headline spot at one of the UK's big festivals in 2017?

After their recent spate of hugely successful live shows as part of their reunion tour it seems as is if the unthinkable is possible and we in the UK will once again get to see Guns 'N' Roses do what they do best on our shores after decades of waiting.

Axl, Duff and Slash seem to more than happy to continue with their agreement to reunite and have even extended their run to include some Latin American shows as well.

Drummer Steven Adler has even returned to the fold for the first time since 1990 for a couple of numbers at two stadium shows.

The only missing ingredient is rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, who as yet has shown no interest in rejoining his former bandmates. If Stradlin returned to the GNR fold it could see them becoming a band who had a golden ticket for their fans.

However after some shaky starts and non-sell-out shows the current tour has been called a success.

If rumours are right the band have overcome fears of no-shows and late-starts to put them firmly in the running for spots at key UK festivals such as Download and Glastonbury.

Surely such a result would see UK rock fans ensure those events sell-out in record time.
