Guns N’ Roses Confirm Two Coachella Shows, Slash and Duff Hint at Return

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Guns N’ Roses have confirmed that they will perform two concerts at this year’s Coachella festival, on April 16 and 23.

As of this posting, the band has not officially addressed the possibility of former members such as Slash or Duff McKagan returning to the group, as has been widely rumored in recent months.

However, both Slash and McKagan promptly shared the same announcement image – featuring the Guns N’ Roses bullet logo against a desert backdrop – on their Instagram account and Facebook page respectively, which would seem to indicate that they are returning to the group for these shows. Or … really messing with people.

Meanwhile, singer Axl Rose threatened to break the record for “most emojis in one tweet” while confirming the booking (but again, not the lineup):

The rumor mill on a possible Guns N’ Roses reunion began to whirl after Slash revealed, back in August, that he and long-estranged former bandmate Axl Rose were on speaking terms again. Months of speculation and unverified theories followed, with the only official word from the band being Rose’s humorous declaration of love for Taco Bell.

In recent days it was reported that Rose would appear on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show tomorrow night (Jan. 5) to address the reunion rumors. However, earlier today his name was removed from the schedule on the show’s website. Quick, completely uninformed tip: We’re still gonna watch the show, just in case.
