Believe it or not, Guns N’ Roses are back with their classic lineup, featuring none-other than Axl Rose on vocals, Slash on lead guitar, and Duff McKagan on bass!
The GN’R reunion tour 2016 will take place for a string of around 25 dates at premium locations only. The party will get started on April 8 and 9, with a double-night headlining show at the newly opened T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The tickets for the Vegas gig are already up for sale, and we advise you to buy Guns N’ Roses tickets online as soon as possible. They are available for a price between $79 and $250, and yes – they are selling lite hotcakes.
The second confirmed gig is the heavily anticipated performance at the Coachella Festival 2016, which will take place over two weekends in April at the traditional location – the Empire Polo Club venue in Indio, CA. The festivity will feature some of the hottest music acts in the world today, and Guns will be standing right at the top of the pyramid. Their shows will take place on April 16 and April 23, consisting of up to one and a half hours of pure rock ‘n’ roll on both nights.
The trek will really get on the move in June with a string of 20 live dates across the US. Starting with June 23 show at the Ford Field in Detroit, MI, the run will stretch out for two months across the country, with notable stops in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Kansas City, and more. The band will make their sole Canadian appearance on the tour in Toronto on July 16 at the Rogers Centre.
Although the juicy info has been revealed, a lot of other interesting reports are circulating the web, claiming that classic Gunners Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler might take part in the reunion after all. This would mark the definite return of the big boys, and many fans are ever so eager about the possibility. The tour will become one of the most profitable musical treks in recent rock history, as the band will reportedly be paid $3 million per concert, bringing the total earnings number to a whopping figure of $100 million.
Ever since the release of 1987’s “Appetite for Destruction,” the most successful debut album in the history of music, the Guns have been on a journey of epic proportions, selling over 100 million albums around the world, and releasing six records that have become staple marks of hard ‘n’ heavy music. Reports also indicate that the band is working on a new album, a follow-up to 2008’s “Chinese Democracy” and their first effort to feature Slash and Duff since 1993’s “The Spaghetti Incident.” The boys are in very good shape these days, and both fans and critics agree that this thing is shaping up to become the tour of the decade. So better get those tickets right now!
