As the world continues to wait for Guns N' Roses' long-promised, oft-delayed album "Chinese Democracy," Axl Rose and company have rolled out dates for the group's first-ever visit to Africa. The band is scheduled to headline My Coke Fest 2007, which takes place April 27 at Johannesburg's New Market Racecourse, and May 1 at Cape Town's Kenilworth Racecourse, according to South African radio station 5FM. The event will also feature Evanescence and Hoobastank, among others.

"Chinese Democracy" is tentatively due in stores March 6.

Please Axl, have a heart, don't go to Africa, they have enough sh** as it is. Last thing they need is a sh** band to add on to the sh** already in their country!

And one more thing: does anyone else find it VERY ironic that Axl will be attending an event called, "My Coke Fest 2007"? I bet that when he gets there and sees all the banners for Coca-Cola, he'll realize that he made a large miscalculation.
