Guns N’ Roses have announced a pair of new shows scheduled for April 8 and 9 at the opening weekend of Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. These will be the first concerts for the reunited band, which is also scheduled to appear at the Coachella music festival the following weekend.

The group announced the shows on Facebook with a post that includes a 30-second video that features shots of both guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan onstage with singer Axl Rose, adding fuel to the rumors that the Coachella concerts — scheduled for the weekends of April 15 and April 22 in Indio, Calif. — are just the start of the band’s reunited performances with the original members, who left in the mid-’90s.

You can see the video for the concerts below. Tickets go on sale Saturday.

There’s still no word on who will be joining the mostly reunited GNR onstage for either the Vegas or Coachella concerts. The latest rumors — and there’s still a ton of them regarding this reunion — have guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman playing with the core trio.

And nobody really knows if this is just the start of a bigger reunion tour. Apparently, the band is asking $3 million per show, and right now the Coachella and Vegas dates are the only ones announced.

The new T-Mobile Arena is scheduled to open on April 6 with a show by hometown heroes the Killers and Wayne Newton. The GNR concerts will kick off the venue’s first big weekend.
