Founder Axl Rose and former members Slash and Duff McKagan will regroup to headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival (April 15th-17th & April 22nd-24th), as announced last night.

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

    This is a great day for all things hard rock and heavy metal. Similar to the 1998 SABBATH reunion.

    Hype ! No Adler, No Izzy, No Care !

    • john tison on

      Wow, really?! GnR is Axl and Slash.

    • DR Is Live on

      I think you do care.

      Really. Adler makes or breaks the reunion for you? Why is that?

      You have to figure whatever the level is of Izzy’s involvement, it will be entirely of his choosing. He plays as much or as little as he wants.

    People are so focused on my comment. Not here to fight. Yes maybe Axl and Slash are GNR personality wise. Adler has the love for music in his heart and wants to play so badly. Yes I am happy to see as many of the guys back together. You have to admit that Izzy and Steven were huge parts to this band. Where would they be without that first huge album ? As far as Izzy playing as much or as little as he wants is simply untrue. The guy has been releasing new music consistently for many years and was hugely responsible for the gritty grungy bluesy rock sound that set them apart. If you don’t believe that here is a little reminder for you. I wonder how many shows were delayed do to Izzy not wanting start on time? Have a good day. Enjoy the show.

      Axl stated years ago he wouldn’t bring Adler back into the band because he didn’t want to deal with Steven’s mother or lawyer – read into that what you will. Izzy was a huge song writing source for the band. But performance-wise he’s a comparable rhythm guitarist, nothing more. I respect your point Chris and don’t get me wrong, I would have no interest in seeing this. But people who play the ‘its not a true reunion…blah blah blah’ card miss the larger point. It is Axl and it is Slash, and that is the biggest part of the original band and there are people who will pay to see that. Throw in Duff and I think most would be satisfied with this lineup.

    Saw them once in 92 at RFK for the first show of the Metallica-GnR tour in DC. I don’t think I’ll ever top that experience. I think I’ll skip this one.

    This doesn’t really do anything for me, since I’m not that much of a GNR fan – but I do acknowledge it’s a big deal for a lot of people. Personally I’m not sure that having only one really awesome all time classic record (yes, only AFD is that good) makes them worthy of all the hype and praise this press release lauds them with, but I can’t deny they are an iconic band of their era. I have a feeling this is way more about cashing in than really “getting back together”, and it will be interesting to see if they can keep it all held together for any appreciable run of shows. Hopefully Eddie is right and this will help the state of rock music in this country in general. For those of you that are excited about it, I hope it lives up to your expectations.
