It’s official – Guns N’ Roses have announced even more shows for this spring. After their huge reunion show in April at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the band will head to Coachella and play on two separate days there. In between, they will head to Mexico City to play a show there as well. Original band members Slash, Duff McKagan, and founding member Axl Rose are all confirmed to be there for this legendary reunion.
The iconic rock band has been playing together since 1985, though they’ve had bumps along the way that have left fans without any new music for the past few years. Their debut album Appetite for Destruction released in 1987 was the best-selling U.S. debut ever, and sold 30 million copies globally. Their seven-time platinum albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II reached the top two spots on the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Since then, Guns N’ Roses have performed in various festivals and sold-out shows worldwide ever since the release of their platinum album Chinese Democracy. With six studio albums under their belt, the band has become one of the most famous and influential American rock bands in history.
(UPDATED: 05/18/2016): Alice In Chains and Lenny Kravitz will be joining Guns N’ Roses for shows in June and July.
