Axl Rose to Appear on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Amid Guns N' Roses Reunion 2016 Rumors
Amidst Guns N' Roses reunion rumors, Axl Rose is slated to make an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It is widely thought that Rose is planning on discussing the future of Guns N' Roses during the show, scheduled for Tuesday (Jan. 5).
Slash and Rose have feuded in the past, but mended their differences in 2015 after a 20-year argument. But Slash has traditionally kept quiet on the possibility of a band reunion, and according to NME has only said to CBS in the past that he would "never say never." But his commentary did make fans hopeful for the even slight possibility. The band's drummer Matt Sorum has also always declined to comment on the reunion rumors, as well as that he would not want to be part of it without previous drummer Steven Adler.
It's been reported that the reunion rumors are in fact true and that the band is set to headline Coachella Music & Arts Festival in 2016 before heading off on a 25-date stadium tour beginning next summer. It is even rumored that that one of the first shows would take place at the Las Vegas Arena on April 6. The legendary rock band will be asking for upwards of $3 million for each show and almost $8 million for their performance at Amnesia Rockfest in Quebec.
The rumors began to kick into hyperdrive when the band updated their website recently to reveal the classic Guns N' Roses logo in addition to new merchandise featuring all of the original band members. This was significant due to the copyright dispute between Slash and Rose over a long period of time.
Guns N' Roses are not the only band rumored to re-group in 2016, and there have also been rampant suspicions that LCD Soundsystem is also gearing up for a reunion.
