In what is sure to be the music news event of the year, Axl Rose has been photographed without his signature fedora! Yes, the Guns N' Roses singer has been spotted with his long red locks on full display (see the photo above).

The enigmatic frontman has been sporting his fedora at his band's concerts and while out and about for the past several years, but thanks to these new photos, the public can now see Rose's hairdo on full display.

All it took was a little 'patience' and a Facebook post from Guns N' Roses themselves, declaring that Rose was "partying like a rock star in London." The post also links to more photos featuring Axl without his hat on.

No telling whether Axl Rose will keep his hat on during Guns N' Roses upcoming U.S. festival performances at Rocklahoma in Pryor, Okla. (May 24), River City Rockfest in San Antonio, Texas (May 26), and Governor's Ball in New York City (June 8). The only way to find out is to see for yourself. Click here for tickets.
