Guns N’ Roses To Play Coachella, Stadium Shows Planned In New York & Other Major Cities

As we have been reporting for months, the reunited Guns N’ Roses will be headlining the Coachella festival in Indio, CA in April 2016. Billboard confirmed our reports earlier today, also reporting that the band will play the new Las Vegas Arena, which is set to open in April. Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan so far are the only confirmed members.

Alternative Nation has learned that Guns N’ Roses will announce additional United States stadium tour dates in late January 2016. We previously reported on December 1st that around 25 dates were planned, and this still appears to be the case. A show at MetLife stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey (where the New York Jets and New York Giants play) is reportedly in the works.

Consequence of Sound
is reporting that Matt Sorum will be the drummer, but there have been many contradictory reports, with Frank Ferrer even hinting at his own involvement, and Steven Adler publicly lobbying for his job back just a couple of months ago.

    Billboard isn’t citing any sources to any of this. It’s just more of this “multiple sources of confirmed” crap.

    Name your source then. Who said this stuff? But nothing has been concrete, 100% verifiable. I can’t take shit like that seriously when its obviously a load.

    I find it both strange and hilarious how all of these low-level, unnamed sources are breaking all this news and yet not one word from anyone affiliated with the band or the band’s management crew has been spoken.

    Late January? There seem to be reports of a january 5th announcement.

    To say MBV isn’t influential is pretty bold. I’d argue Loveless influenced rock music just as much as Nevermind.

    But yeah I agree with you Billboard sucks.
