    Legendary rock giants Guns N’ Roses are ”days away” from announcing a world reunion tour next year, Dish Nation is exclusively reporting.

    Guitarist Slash has confirmed that he and lead singer Axl Rose have reconciled after almost a decade of arguments and now Los Angeles music insiders close to the band say they have tentatively agreed to perform together again in 2016.


    It’s expected that they 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.

    “Slash and Axl have verbally agreed to get things together again and reform the original band. 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.”

    Reports have recently come out saying that the band has been offered gigs in Australia, Sweden and Portugal — although reps for the band have refused to comment.


    Last month a friend close to Slash confirmed that he and Axl are now talking again and a comeback tour is close to being revealed.

    Marketing experts say that the American band are on course to coin in a whopping $100 million thanks to ticket sales, CD revenue, licensing and merchandising.

    “I know that he and Axl talking again is a really good sign, because we all grew up loving Guns N’ Roses. I mean I am an LA kid and I remember when they were playing the Sunset Strip,” Slash’s close friend John Murdy told the UK’s Mirror.

    “It is so cool to see these guys back when they have been around so long.”


    Guns N’ Roses keyboard player Dizzy Reed recently hinted a band comeback is close, too.

    “With GNR, timelines don’t really apply,” Dizzy told Loudwire.

    “And that’s fine, things will come out when they’re ready and we’ll go on tour when we’re ready…”

    Even Slash, who refused to speak with Axl, has painted the singer in a more positive light.

    “There’s no animosity. Over time we all just got sick and tired of the black cloud,” Slash said in an interview with CBS.

    “The biggest thing that happens when you have a break up that is less than harmonious, you build up a bad energy because of the distance. The bad feelings get exaggerated.”



    It has been over two decades since Slash, Axl, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and drummer Matt Sorum all stood on stage together to perform on their “Use Your Illusion” tour.

    It wrapped July 17, 1993 in Argentina, and since then Axl has only since brought Duff and Izzy onto the stage with his new Guns N’ Roses band. However, he refused to appear at the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Museum induction.

    The band — which started in a Hollywood deli and were signed in 1986 — sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

    This is great but it won't end well, if it happens at all. AXL will fuck it up.

    Two of my favorite things--Star Wars and Guns N' Roses. Everything old is new again.

    I got this from another website:

    Report: Guns N' Roses Are Announcing Worldwide Reunion Tour in a Matter of Days!
    artist: Guns N' Rosesdate: 11/11/2015

    [​IMG]


    After Guns N' Roses' official Twitter page posted that cryptic message hinting the band's classic lineup is set for a massively-anticipated reunion, a new report is claiming that the announcement of a global classic GN'R tour is set to drop in just a matter of days.

    According to Dish Nation, the group will first headline several major festivals in Europe and US, only to embark on a worldwide headlining tour to mark 30 years of GN'R.

    This somewhat matches the previous reportclaiming that the band's first reunion show will take place in Portugal earlier next year.

    An insider noted: "Slash and Axl have verbally agreed to get things together again and reform the original band. The live shows is where they can show the world what they had and also make the greatest earnings.

    "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."

    According to other reports, the band was already approached about playing shows in Australia and Sweden.

    In other news, longtime friend of bassist Duff McKagan's wife Susan Holmes-McKagan, the nipple pasties-wearing Brandi Glanville, made claims that the boys are indeed set to get back in town.

    While the ladies were on a night out, they were approached by a paparazzi reporter dude, and Nipple Pasties shouted: "Guns N' Roses is coming back, motherfuckers!"

    It might sound silly, but if reunion was indeed confirmed, Duff would likely tell his wife - in confidence - and wife would likely tell her blabbermouth best friend - in confidence - and the blabbermouth friend would tell the world - in confidence... or not. It's just the way of the world.

    The big announcement is reportedly just "days away," so stay tuned for updates.

    My first thought. They won't make it through the tour. End like last tour with Axl sitting backstage in a folding chair with a shotgun and bottle of jack.

    Each song is going to need a ten minute guitar solo for this fat fuck to catch his breath.

    He will do one of his infamous blowups after 4 or 5 shows when it finally becomes obvious how fat and embarrassing he is now

    During the intermission Duff could give investment/financial advice.

    I'll be there. Even if W. Axl Rose is transforming into a 17th century British Barrister.

    Axl's voice is absolute shit now, no desire to see this unless it is free.

    Let me say this again, Axl has no voice anymore, he sounds like total complete dog shit.



    :haha:

    I just want them to go out and play. The shows don't need a giant stage, pyrotechnics, backup singers, none of that stuff that made the Use Your Illusion tour feel like an exercise in overindulgence.

    With that being said, for me to see Axl and Slash on stage together again was one of those bucket list dreams that I never thought would happen again. Old-school Guns N' Roses are my favorite band of all time, and I can't wait for the official announcement.

    Axl's voice always sucked live. He sounds the same in that video as he did 20 years ago live

    If a band could actually hold up i would agree but they will need everything possible on stage to distract people from axl sucking. Half of the show will be slash solos as it should be.

    Ticket prices will be insane and they were lightening in a bottle. You can't go back in time for this stuff.

    I will save my money for when Beff gets divorced and relists on horsefacedescorts.com.
