Guns N’ Roses Are Gettin’ The Band Back Together; Likely Headlining Coachella
Rumours of a classic Guns N’ Roses reunion have been floating around for a while now, and ever since Slash stated earlier in the year that he no longer had beef with ringleader Axl Rose, fans have been clamouring for the inevitable.
After changing their website to show their old logo and even commissioning a teaser to play in cinemas ahead of Star Wars, the mind games seem to have finally come to an end. Consequence Of Sound have reported that the LA quartet – undoubtedly one of rock’s most historic – will come together for the first time since 1993 to headline… Coachella?
It’s an interesting choice of festival to say the least, but from a business standpoint, you can’t blame them – it’s reported that the band will earn between $3 and $8 million for each show on the run. If the reports are accurate, the band will also embark on a headlining stadium tour throughout the US that will hit around half the country. No word on an Australian jaunt, but fuck, how we have our fingers crossed.
An official announcement is set to be made later in the week, though it’s reported that the line-up will consist of founding members Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, with Matt Sorum believed to be filling in for Steven Adler behind the drums.
And now here’s “Patience”, because every Gunners fan has it in spades.
