Flamboyant hard rockers Guns N' Roses have announced a massive UK show to take place this summer.

The band's epic 'Not In This Lifetime' world tour is returning to Europe - and a Scottish date has now been announced, following an initial reveal of dates in 2019.

It had been anticipated the band would choose Edinburgh's BT Murrayfield stadium as a venue, but instead they'll take to the stage as part of a huge open air concert on Glasgow Green on 25 June.

Axl Rose and his band will play also two dates at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London a month earlier in May.

Guns N' Roses full UK and Ireland dates for 2020 are as follows:

May 29 - London, Tottenham Hotspur StadiumMay 30 - London, Tottenham Hotspur StadiumJune 23 - Glasgow GreenJune 27 - Dublin, Marlay Park

Following the reformation of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan in 2016, the Not In This Lifetime tour has played to over 5.5 million fans and is one of the highest-grossing tours of all time.

The global part of their tour begins in Miami at the end of January before dates in Mexico City, Quito and Buenos Aires to name just a few of the major cities included.

The European tour kicks off in Lisbon on May 20.

Other European cities on the Los Angeles band's schedule include Hamburg, Vienna and Prague.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets are available now for members of Guns N' Roses 'Nightrain' fan service.

If you're not a member though, don't fret. Tickets go on general sale this Friday (January 31) at 9am GMT.

They are available through Ticketmaster.

What might they play?

With June so far out, it's hard to take an accurate guess on what songs might get a live airing come the band's Glasgow show.

It's a given that hits like 'Sweet Child o' Mine' and 'Welcome to the Jungle' will be played, but what else can fans expect?
