Guns N' Roses Reunion Confirmed
The biggest rock n' roll reunion of all time is confirmed: For the first time in over 20 years members of the original line-up of Guns N' Roses including Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan will be playing together.
The first show will be happening at this year's Coachella Festival in Indio, California on April 16th and 23rd. This will be the first time that Rose and Slash have performed together on stage since the Buenos Aires concert in 1993. McKagan on the other hand has performed with the newer line-up of the band over the years for a few shows here and there.
Rumours of these shows have been circulating for a while now, but they were confirmed when just yesterday the above image was posted on the official Guns N' Roses, Slash, and Duff McKagan social media pages.
My inner-17 year old is flipping the hell out right now. This is the one reunion people thought would NEVER happen. The bitter feud between Slash and Rose was stuff of legendary proportions. People thought for years that if the two were to even be in the same building as each other all hell would break loose. I guess some times all it really takes is time to heal a broken relationship. Personally, I'm happy beyond all belief that this has happened within my lifetime. Now so many people who never got the chance to see the original band will get to. I just hope that Rose whips himself and his voice into shape before the shows so that they don't fall flat.
