They’re back! Guns n Roses reform for Festival

It’s official.

After all the whispering and rumours, it has been confirmed that the original line of Guns n Roses are set to return!

Axl_Rose,_Guns_n_RosesThe re-formed band are expected to get back together for California’s Coachella music festival in April.

The event, which takes place over two weekends, confirmed the reunion rumours as it announced its bill.

The concerts are expected to be the first time singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash have performed together in Guns N’ Roses since 1993, and with original drummer Steven Adler who left in 1990.

The rock band confirmed the dates on their website.

On a video on the site, Axl Rose is heard singing: “You know where you are? You’re in the jungle, baby,” from the band’s track Welcome To The Jungle.

Guns N’ Roses kept going without Slash, who left the group in October 1996 saying it was too difficult to work with Rose.

The singer, who rarely gives interviews, had been scheduled to speak on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night talk show but cancelled his appearance.

The band’s 1987 album Appetite for Destruction remains the top-selling debut album by a group in the US, where it’s sold 18 million copies.

Coachella

 

Coachella, which launched in 1999, has emerged as one of the world’s most famous music events alongside Glastonbury in the UK.

But while last year’s festival sold out quickly, critics said the 2015 line-up lacked Coachella’s usual headline-grabbing power.

Last year’s headliners were AC/DC, Jack White and Drake.
