Guns N’ Roses to Reunite for Coachella, Stadium Tour

Original Guns N’ Roses band members Axl Rose and Slash will reunite this spring at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Billboard reported Tuesday.

As the duo’s first joint stage appearance in over two decades, headlining Coachella will also mark the launch of a possible North American summer tour — a tour that may include up to 25 stadiums and an inaugural performance at the upcoming Las Vegas Arena, which is currently under construction.

Though the hard rock band concluded its most recent tour last year, Rose was the only original bandmate involved.

The confirmation comes after months of speculation that Rose and Slash would rekindle their legendary partnership for a Guns N’ Roses reunion performance (or two). Reunion rumors were recently re-ignited by updates to the group’s website and Facebook page over the holiday as well as the airing of mysterious Guns N’ Roses concert footage prior to screenings of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” over the past week.

Having recently hosted Outkast’s reunion performance in 2014, Coachella has built a reputation for hosting the anticipated resurgences of once-retired performers. The festival also hosted rapper Tupac Shakur’s posthumous hologram appearance and a reunion for English rock group Pulp in 2012.

The Guns N’ Roses Coachella reunion has yet to be confirmed by the band and festival representatives.

  1. If I found the Chinese Democracy tour was great I expect this to be better! Glad to see real RockStars are getting back

    • Kelly says:

      Well it’s not a reunion tour if all of them is not getting back together. Without izzy and Steven, it is not a reunion

    I’m happy Axl reunited with Santana & Slash… It’s good 2 have the old/new line-up-down back! Don’t B shocked if Axl Rosengarden does a duet with lovely lovely Landa Landa Landa Del Rey! X pect the un expected! Just throw trash in Axl’s face and he’ll quit his show!

  3. Lex says:

    If true, good luck to them. I’ve seen the great rock stars of that era kind of worn out (or dead) and I hope they can put on a great show.
