Guns N’ Roses Reunite to Play Coachella 2016?
You might just catch the Axl+Slash+Duffy McKagan lineup as rumors of the original ‘Appetite For Destruction‘ reunion have sparkedâ€”again
Undercurrents of the Guns N’ Roses reunion rumor have been running thick the entire year ”” whether it wasÂ MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e’sÂ Nikki SixxÂ tweeting [in all caps] thatÂ “THEY ARE [getting back together], EVERYBODY KNOWS.”,Â Axl Rose and SlashÂ mending fences earlier this yearÂ or the guitarist himself announcing “it [the reunion] was probably way overdue.”
But speculation over the original “Appetite” lineup regrouping after 20 odd years quickly gained traction once more, after Billboard reported that multiple sources had confirmed the legendary rock band as headliners for Cali’s mega-festival Coachella next year,Â set forÂ April 15-17Â andÂ April 22-24Â 2016.
GnR is also rumored to be in talks with promotersÂ to play a number of football stadiums across North America, and is scheduled to be one of the first acts to play the new Las Vegas Arena, set to openÂ April 6.
While the original Axl+Slash+Duffy McKagan lineup will be one of the biggest comebacks in music history, it is certainly not the first time that Coachella will have achieved the impossible; having hostedÂ reunions in the vein of American metallers Rage Against The Machine inÂ 2007,Â IrishÂ rock bandÂ My Bloody ValentineÂ in 2009 and American hip hop duo Outkast in 2014.
