Guns N’ Roses are “days away” from announcing a world reunion tour, according to Dish Nation.
In addition, Los Angeles music insiders close to the band say they have tentatively agreed to perform together again in 2016.
“Slash and Axl have verbally agreed to get things together again and reform the original band,” Dish Nation reports.
“The live shows is where they can show the world what they had and also make the greatest earnings,” a music insider exclusively told Dish. “Promoters are quietly working away to land opportunities. Details of the reunion are expected to leak out in the next few days. Everyone is expecting huge demand for tickets, but the boys are very humble and are not sure what to expect.”
It’s expected that Guns N’ Roses will headline several festivals across Europe and the United States before heading out on a staggered world tour that will coincide with their 30th anniversary. Marketers expect the tour could gross a whopping $100 million through ticket sales, CD revenue, licensing and merchandising.
The announcement comes days after the wife of bassist Duff McKagan and her friend revealed that a GN’R reunion was imminent.
Rumors of the lineup’s reunion have been circulating since guitarists Bumblefoot and DJ Ashba left the band earlier this year. Slash has revealed that he and Axl Rose are on friendly terms again, and classic-era drummer Steven Adler and current bassist Tommy Stinson have both said they hope the Appetite for Destruction lineup with return.
