Report: Guns n’ Roses to reunite, headline Coachella

gunsnroseslogoIt’s been one of the worst kept secrets of the past few months, and now it seems to be coming to fruition — Guns n’ Roses will indeed be reuniting, according to Billboard.

The music publication reported on Tuesday that the band will be headlining the 2016 Coachella Festival and is currently in negotiations to undergo a stadium tour. It won’t come cheap, however, for either fans or promoters.

“Guns N’ Roses, with founding members Axl Rose and Slash, will headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., set for April 15-17 and April 22-24, according to multiple sources,” wrote Ray Waddell of Billboard. “The reunited band is also negotiating with promoters to play as many as 25 football stadiums in North America in the summer of 2016, and is scheduled to be one of the first acts to play the new Las Vegas Arena, set to open April 6. Guns N’ Roses is said to be asking as much as $3 million per show, with tickets topping out in the $250-$275 range.”

Talk of a possible reunion has been swirling for some time, and the speculation heated up when the band recently put their old logo on their web site and mysterious trailers featuring the band appeared in movie theaters before the film Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Rose and Slash have not performed together since July 17, 1993.
