The press release promises a two-and-a-hour set featuring all of the band’s greatest hits. Guns headlined the final night on the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil, playing for 75,000 people on Oct. 2.

The band was among the nominees announced last month for consideration for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and it is expected to be one of the five actsthat will be part of the class of 2012.
