Guns N' Roses make history with 2016 return

Iconic Lineup to Headline COACHELLA Music & Arts Festival in April in Indio, CA

January 5, 2016 – Upholding a three-decade tradition of breaking ground, creating trends, and forever changing the face of rock ‘n’ roll, Guns N’ Roses announce the most significant and anxiously awaited musical event of this century. Founder Axl Rose and former members Slash and Duff McKagan will regroup to headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival (April 15-17 & April 22-24)—as announced last night!

For months, critics and audiences alike have generated immense excitement and speculation over the possible regrouping of the iconic line-up. The April performances will mark the first time since 1993 the Gunners will share the stage for what is certain to be an explosive event. For more information please visit www.gunsnroses.com.

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

Axl Rose, Slash & Duff McKagan Confirmed for Guns N’ Roses Coachella Lineup

By Colin Stutz

Guns N’ Roses has confirmed its upcoming reunion performances at Coachella with members of the band’s classic lineup Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan. But some former members are still noticeably absent from the billing.

Word follows the release of Coachella’s official lineup Monday with an official press release announcing Rose, Slash and McKagan’s regrouping.

Notably, the statement does not name all five members of the iconic hard rock band’s classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, leaving it unclear whether rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin and drummer Steven Adler will join Guns N’ Roses for the shows, or who will fill those slots otherwise. Adler was the first of the classic lineup to leave the band, in 1990, and then Stradlin left the following year.

Billboard reached out to the band’s rep for comment but had not heard back at publishing.

Guns N’ Roses will perform Saturday night at both weekends of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., set for April 15-17 and April 22-24. This will be the first time the Rose-Slash-McKagen trio will perform together since July 17, 1993 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires.

Axl Rose, Slash And Duff McKagan Officially Confirmed For Guns N' Roses Reunion

Guns N' Roses has issued a press release confirming that guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan will rejoin singer Axl Rose for the band's upcoming performances at this year's Coachella Music And Arts Festival. Guns N' Roses will play on April 16 and April 23 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. There is no word on whether original guitarist Izzy Stradlin or drummer Steven Adler will appear. Consequence Of Sound says that Adler's original replacement, Matt Sorum, is also on board, while other reports have suggested that current drummer Frank Ferrer and guitarist Richard Fortus will round out the lineup.

Tickets for Coachella Music And Arts Festival go on sale Wednesday, January 6 at 11:00 a.m. via Coachella.com.

Speculation about a reunion tour has been steady ever since Slash revealed last summer that he and Axl had repaired their friendship after being estranged for nearly 20 years.

The last show Axl and Slash played together was on July 17, 1993 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires. The latest incarnation of Guns N' Roses, which only included Axl from the original lineup, played a residency in Las Vegas in 2014 but has remained silent since.

According to Billboard, the Guns reunion — which sources say has been in the works for two years — is also seeking to mount a 25-city stadium tour, with the band reportedly asking for anywhere from $3 million to $5 million a show.
