Guns N' Roses, featuring founding members Slash and Axl Rose, are planning to reunite this summer for the first time since the "Use Your Illusion Tour", ending July 17, 1993 at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The reunion is one of many coaxed into existence by a headlining spot at Indio, California's Coachella Music and Arts Festival, which has a track record of reuniting acts like Outkast (2014), Pulp (2012), My Bloody Valentine (2009), and Rage Against the Machine (2007).
The reunited GNR are also negotiating a tour of as many as 25 stadiums in North America for summer 2016, including one of the first shows at Nevada's new Las Vegas Arena due to open April 6th.
According to Billboard, the band may be asking as much as $3 million per concert, with top-tier tickets going for between $250 to $275.
Long-time fans of the best selling rock band have been suspect of any new developments over the last 20 years or so, with an apparent never-ending stream of drama between founding members.
The ultimate disappointment that was Chinese Democracy came after a decade of delays and lineup changes, culminating in a Guns N' Roses tour that only featured Axl Rose from the original lineup.
GNR's first album, Appetite for Destruction is the best-selling debut in American history, reigning at number one on the Billboard 200 Chart for five weeks, selling 18 million copies.
Appetite also included perhaps the band's best known song, Billboard Hot 100 single "Sweet Child O' Mine." Since their inception in 1985, Guns N' Roses have sold 44.5 million albums in the United States alone, according the RIAA.
While the majority of the tour is unsure at this point, it's definitely too early to start thinking about Slash and Axl together, but wouldn't that be just precious?
