Confirmed: Reunited Guns N''' Roses To Play Next Year'''s Coachella Music And Arts Festival - Blabbermouth.net

U.S. music industry magazine Billboard says that it has obtained "confirmation" that GUNS N' ROSES, featuring singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash, will headline next year's edition of the Coachella Music And Arts Festival, set to take place April 15-17 and April 22-24 in Indio, California. The band is also in talks to play as many as 25 football stadiums in North America in the summer of 2016. In addition, GN'R will be one of the first acts to play the new Las Vegas Arena, set to open April 6. GUNS N' ROSES is said to be asking up to $3 million per show, with tickets topping out in the $250-$275 range.

1) It's sounding like even Duff won't be included.

2) Nearly $300 for a fucking ticket.

Also, a variation of one of my favorite GIFs.

I suppose if they were to play at the local watering hole here in OKC I might see them on "no cover charge" night, but I'm not shelling out $300 to see the world's greatest Guns N Roses tribute band.

I don't care if it's the Appetite for Destruction lineup - I bet Axl's so bad he's not worth much more than a free ticket.

I'd still go if they toured and played nearby. Yes, it's not really GNR, but I'll take what I can get. The only way to see the original lineup with a good sound Axl would be if Dr. Emmett Brown came along too.

No? I heard Duff was involved?
He posted some pic with caption: "LAMF" which was in a video or something like from GN'R? Like he was at a rehearsal or something?

I'd be interested in the original line up or maybe even with Sorum playing, but to not include Adler, the one guy who is more fucking stoked to play in GnR than anyone else, is bullshit. Axl's a bigger fucking liability than Adler is and for entirely different reasons. No confirmation on Duff is odd as well, since he's actually played with Axl a few times in the last couple years and by his own book, he says him and Axl are fine these days.
