Well it appears if the money is right, then everything is plain in sight. Three years ago frontman/vocalist Axl Rose chose not to participate in Guns ‘N Roses‘ formal induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Axl’s actions cemented what appeared to be an endless-rift between the founding-lineup of what is widely considered one of the greatest hard-rock fixtures in all of history. Today, those ties have been mended. In light of overwhelming insight into the band’s actions for the near-future, the vote of confidence is restored. The founding line-up, with the exception of original drummer: Steven Adler, will officially reunite to headline Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California.
Slated to take the stage by storm somewhere within the comfortably-nestled time-confines of: April 15-17 and April 22-24, Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, and the rumored: Matt Sorum on drums will join forces once again after a 22-year sabbatical in no-man’s land.
The last time the original-core-clan shared the stage with each other was on July 17, 1993 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires. After years of passing up reunion offers, reports indicate the boys of Paradise City will be paid a whopping $3-8 million per show. According to Billboard, in addition to gracing Coachella, Guns N’ Roses also seek to embark on a stadium-wide tour, stretching the likes of more than 25-cities in counting. Tickets are expected to max-out within the $250-275 arena.
UPDATE (02/02/16): According to Consequence Of Sound, The band has also announced a show in Mexico City, MX at Foro Sol to take place on April 19.
