Guns N’ Roses have confirmed that Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan will reunite to perform at Coachella this April.
The band issued a press release on Tuesday announcing the involvement of the three original members.
“Upholding a three-decade tradition of breaking ground, creating trends, and forever changing the face of rock ‘n’ roll, Guns N’ Roses announce the most significant and anxiously awaited musical event of this century,” said the band. “Founder Axl Rose and former members Slash and Duff McKagan will regroup to headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival (April 15th-17th and April 22nd-24th) — as announced last night!
“For months, critics and audiences alike have generated immense excitement and speculation over the possible regrouping of the iconic line-up. The April performances will mark the first time since 1993 the Gunners will share the stage for what is certain to be an explosive event.”
The news leaves fans to speculate on the remainder of the 2016 lineup, with rumors suggesting a mix of the original and most recent Guns N’ Roses crew are expected to be involved.
On Monday, Rose cancelled a scheduled Tuesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live that was expected to see the singer provide details about the reunion.
