As previously reported, Guns N' Roses will be one of the first acts to play the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on April 8th and April 9th.
The reunitedGuns N' Roses — featuring singer Axl Rose alongside guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan — will be one of the first acts to play the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, set to open on April 6th. They will play at the 20,000-seat venue on April 8th and April 9th. None of the other original band members - guitarist Izzy Stradlin and drummer Steven Adler - have confirmed or commented on whether they will participate in the reunion.
As it turns out, the rumors were right about Guns N' Roses this time. The official announcement has been made and the band will perform at Coachella 2016 as headliners. The Guns N' Roses reunion will mark the first show for the band with co-founders Axl Rose and Slash since 1993. The legendary band will perform at the California-based festival on April 16th and April 23rd. Axl Rose and Slash will be featured in the lineup, with bassist Duff McKagan also involved. The rest of the lineup has not been revealed.
Every now and then, we have rumors that the classic Guns N' Roses lineup might be reuniting. However, now the reunion rumors are stronger than ever since the band's website was made to display their classic style logo. This furthers the recent speculation that the original members will come together in 2016. In fact, some sources claim that the official reunion announcement is just days away. Also, a mysterious teaser, clips of "Welcome To The Jungle" are being played over black-and-white crowd footage during the pre-trailers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
While the reunion of the classic band line-up speculation continues almost every week, Guns N' Roses and Dead Daisies guitarist Richard Fortus recently suffered serious injuries after a motorcycle accident. He broke his shoulder blade, collar bone, six ribs, a toe, has a bruised lung, lacerated liver and a concussion but he will make a full recovery. Sadly for Dead Daisies fans, Richard Fortus will miss the band's upcoming tour dates in Australia and New Zealand due to the crash.
Guns N' Roses have lost one of their three guitarists. Daren Jay Ashba has announced his departure from the Axl Rose-fronted outfit. He leaves the hard rock group after six years of service to focus on his band Sixx:A.M. Ashba was hired to join Guns N' Roses in 2009 following the release of Chinese Democracy to replace guitarist Robin Finck, who departed to rejoin Nine Inch Nails.
Ex-bassist of Guns N' Roses Duff McKagan has confirmed that he will be filling in for the band's current bassist, Tommy Stinson, during the group's South American tour. Stinson is scheduled to reunite with his original band, The Replacements, for two dates at Coachella in mid-April and is unable to make the Guns N' Roses shows. McKagan will join the group in Argentina for the April 6th concert, then play Paraguay (April 9th), Bolivia (April 12th) and two cities in Brazil — Recife (April 15th) and Fortaleza (April 17th).

According to British music magazine NME, a fan at GNR's May 31 concert at London's O2 Arena, who showed up a wearing a Slash T-shirt, was forced by security to remove his shirt at the door. The concertgoer, 18-year-old James Revell, grudgingly abided and entered the venue bare-chested.

E! Online is reporting that, the California man charged with illegally leaking tracks of Guns N' Roses' near-mythical "Chinese Democracy", pleaded not guilty today in federal court.
Kevin Cogill, a 27-year-old blogger known as "Skewrl" who uploaded nine tracks from the forever-in-the-works LP on his Antiquiet in June, was busted Aug. 27.
Cogill was charged under a three-year-old federal anti-piracy law that makes it a felony to distribute a copyrighted work on computer networks before its release. He was released on $10,000 bail.
If convicted of the misdemeanor count, Cogill faces a possible five-year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine. However for a jury to find him guilty, prosecutors must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Cogill unlawfully disseminated the previously unreleased songs for profit.
Another new song of the forever-in-the-works Guns N' Roses album "Chinese Democracy" has been put online. "Better" is now streaming online at Q104.3 FM radio station. You can check it out at this location. Also the title song of the too-long-awaited album, which should be hitting the shelves in the coming week, is available for streaming there.
In other news, Dutch retailer Van Leest has posted 30-second samples of every track from "Chinese Democracy" over at this location.
