The to-be-reunionized rock band Guns N’ Roses have just officially released a couple of new concerts which are scheduled to take place on April 8th and 9th, 2016 at the first open weekend of the new T-Mobile Arena which is located in Las Vegas. These will be the first concerts for the newly reunited band, which is also set to headline this year’s Coachella music festival the next weekend.
The band announced these new shows on Facebook with a post that includes a 30 second video (See Below) that features shots of both guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan onstage with singer Axl Rose, adding fuel to the rumors that the Coachella concerts, scheduled for the weekends of April 15th and April 22nd in Indio, California, are just the start of the band’s reunited performances with the original members, who left in the mid-1990s.

There’s still no word on who exactly will be joining the mostly reunited Guns N’ Roses onstage for either the Vegas or Coachella concerts. The latest rumors, and there’s still a ton of them when it comes to this reunion, have guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman playing with the main trio of Axl, Slash and Duff. Nobody really knows if this is just the start of a bigger reunion tour, but word was that they were planning at least a 25 show tour. The band wants $3 million dollars for each show they perform, and right now the Coachella and Vegas dates are the only ones announced.
The new venue T-Mobile Arena is set to open up on April 6th with a concert by hometown heroes the Killers and Wayne Newton. The Guns N’ Roses concerts will kick off the venue’s first big weekend bash.
