Guns N' Roses Announce Las Vegas Arena Shows Ahead of Coachella Reunion 2016
Ahead of their previously announced headlining reunion at 2016's Coachella Music & Arts Festival, Guns N' Roses' celebrated classic lineup will take the stage for a pair of massive arena shows at Las Vegas' brand new T-Mobile Arena on Friday, April 8, and Saturday, April 9.
“What better city than Las Vegas – the Entertainment Capital of the World – to see Guns N’ Roses play together for the first time in 23 years,” said Dan Quinn, general manager of T-Mobile Arena in a press release. “The T-Mobile Arena was designed to host iconic events such as this, and we will provide guests with an incredible experience as they enjoy this historic show.”
The Guns N' Roses reunion rumors started to take form after the band's original founding guitarist Slash had revealed that he had patched things up with frontman Axl Rose. Shortly thereafter, bassist Duff McKagan's wife was then approached by a paparazzi and her friend yelled "Guns N' Roses are coming back motherf*ckers!," followed by the band's classic logo appearing on new merchandise listed on their webstore, further igniting rumors.
Presale tickets for the Vegas shows will be made available for Citi cardholders on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 10 a.m. PT and general on-sale will begin Saturday, Jan. 23 via AXS. Tickets are starting at a pretty reasonable $79.50, so get them while they're hot.
Limited VIP packages including reserved priority seating, autographed memorabilia, preshow VIP parties, backstage tours, and exclusive Guns N’ Roses merchandise are available.
