When it remains, it really pours; as the Covid restrictions are finally lifted — major artists are rolling out new and rescheduled dates. Among the biggest are Guns N’ Roses, Stevie Nicks, and Foo Fighters who have signed on as headliners for the upcoming BottleRock festival set for September 3rd, 4th, and 5th at Napa, California’s Napa Valley Expo.
Other artists listed for the three day event include Miley Cyrus, Megan Thee Stallion, Run The Jewels, Cage The Elephant, Brandi Carlile, and Black Pumas.
Ultimate Classic Rock reported: “Three-day tickets for BottleRock Napa Valley go on sale to the general public on May 20th at 10 a.m. PT. Tickets for the scrapped 2020 edition of the festival will be valid for this year. Single-day lineups will be announced on May 24th, and single-day tickets will go on sale on May 27th.”
Guns N’ Roses co-founders Slash and Duff McKagan have decades of history together and Slash told us a while back that he and Duff have always had an undeniable chemistry. “When we first met, Duff came in with, for one, just the greatest f***ing work ethic and a kind of personality that’s just totally resilient, which sort of mirrors what I’m about. And then as far as being a player, he has an approach that just goes right in sync with what I do as a guitar player, and we just hit it off as friends, as musicians, ever since the beginning, and it stayed all the way through this whole time.”
Stevie Nicks told us she hopes that her decades of singing, writing and performing have helped inspire future generations of women to do the same: “I hope that I’m a part of the reason why they make music, y’know? I always wanted to be inspirational to other singers, and I wanted to be a success story for women where they could say, ‘Well, she made it. I could make it, too.’ It seems that somehow I’ve managed to do that. I never really tried to do that, but it seems that that has happened.”
