Guns and Roses

After much speculation and rumors it has finally been confirmed: Original Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Axl Rose, and Duff McKagan are reuniting and will headline this year’s Coachella festival on April 16 and April 23.

“Ok,ok... It’s ‘confirmed!’ Guns N’ Roses is Headlining Coachella 2016!! See Everyone There,” wrote Axl in a Tweet. These two shows will be the first time that Slash and Axl have played together since 1993.

The reunion is not a complete return to the classic Appetite For Destruction lineup, with drummer Steven Adler, and guitarist Izzy Stradlin being absent from the bill. It has been suggested that current GN’R drummer Frank Ferrer will be participating in the reunion shows. Guitarist Richard Fortus as well as Slash and Duff’s Velvet Revolver bandmate Dave Kushner are also said to be included in the new GN’R lineup.

Billboard reports that aside from the two now confirmed concerts, the band is in talks with promoters to play upwards of 25 stadium shows throughout North America this summer. But for now it’s time to plan a trip to Indio, CA in April. Tickets for Coachella go on sale on January 6.
