Guns N' Roses Reunion Leads Coachella 2016 Lineup Rumors

December 30, 2015 by Amy

Guns N' Roses Reunion

In keeping with rumors dating back to August, it appears a Guns N’ Roses reunion is all but certain for 2016. With an official Coachella lineup announcement just around the corner, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band has emerged as a very likely headliner, according to multiple industry sources. No variation of the Guns N’ Roses lineup over the years has ever played Coachella, and with 1993 marking the last time Axl Rose and Slash performed together (video below), the news, if proved true, would easily make the festival bill one of the most anticipated in years.



While each year’s Coachella lineup is typically considered one of the country’s best, it also has become known as a launching pad of sorts for major on-stage reunions such as Rage Against the Machine in 2007 and OutKast in 2014. And like OutKast in particular, which went on to headline a number of music festivals in the ensuing months, Guns N’ Roses also appears to have plans to stay busy throughout 2016.

Along with the Coachella headliner rumor, a Guns N’ Roses 2016 stadium tour also is reportedly in the works, all rumored to include the band’s “classic lineup” of Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler. Featuring only Axl Rose, Guns N’ Roses completed a brief Las Vegas residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in 2014, and a return to Sin City also is rumored to be coming in 2016, though this time at the brand new Las Vegas Arena.



As of Dec. 30, The Killers with Wayne Newton are currently the venue’s first scheduled concert with a performance booked for April 6, but according to Billboard, Guns N’ Roses is in the mix for an early appearance at the venue, which would coincide with Coachella, which runs April 15-17 and 22-24. Check back for more details as they become available, including Guns N’ Roses tickets for any potential tour dates booked for 2016.
