Take me down to Indio City where the grass is green and the girls are in bindis, because the original Guns N' Roses lineup will be reuniting for Coachella in 2016, sources say.
Billboard reports that multiple sources say the band is in negotiations with promoters for a 25-stadium tour next summer, and are rumored to be asking as much as $3 million per show.
There have been clues that something like this has been in the works for awhile. According to Stereogum, there have been reports that this trailer below featuring Guns N' Roses tunes played over shots of a concert audience has played before screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Hateful Eight:
Not only that, but the band's website and Facebook page have been revamped, which many have suggested indicates a reunion. On Monday, Guns N' Roses' official Twitter linked to the Instagram account of Del James, one of Axl Roses' best buds and the band's tour manager. What does it all mean?!
According to Billboard, tickets for the arena shows could reach the $250-$275 range. The last time Axl and Slash played was in July 1993 in Buenos Aires. In the decades that followed, Slash has been dissed by Charlie Sheen and had an Umami burger named after him, while Axl railed against the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
If you can't wait until spring to catch Slash, Axl, and the gang, why don't you get your GnR fix by cruising down the hair metal haunts of the 1980s Sunset Strip?
