The Guns N Roses rumors are really heating up. After news surfaced months ago that Slash and Axl are on speaking terms, Guns N Roses updated their website last week to their classic logo further fueling speculation. Then, a mysterious teaser trailer was playing in front of Star Wars leading people to believe an announcement was imminent.
Today, Billboard.com filed a report stating sources have told them the band is locked in to headline Coachella, as well as being one of the first acts playing the brand new Las Vegas Arena. A giant stadium tour in the summer of 2016 is also in the works:
Additionally, the reunited band is negotiating with promoters to play as many as 25 football stadiums in North America in the summer of 2016. The band is said to be asking as much as $3 million per show, with tickets topping out in the $250-$275 range.
This would be Axl and Slash's first show together since 1993. It should be stated that while Billboard has confirmation from their own sources, managers for the band and the venues were not able to be reached at the time of the story's publication.
Either way, I can't imagine an official announcement isn't a few days a way.
