It’s official. After countless rumors, it’s finally been confirmed: Guns N’ Roses will reunite on stage for the first time anywhere right here in Las Vegas.
The reconvened act are set to play two nights at T-Mobile Arena on opening weekend April 8-9 before headlining this year’s Coachella the following two weekends.
“What an honor to work with the biggest name in rock n’ roll as part of the opening celebration of T-Mobile Arena,” Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas said in a release earlier Tuesday morning. “Guns N’ Roses choosing to return to the stage in their full glory, on the Las Vegas Strip to open T-Mobile Arena is rock n’ roll history. This is going to be an awesome event and not to be missed.”
“What better city than Las Vegas – the Entertainment Capital of the World – to see Guns N’ Roses play together for the first time in 23 years,” added Dan Quinn, general manager of T-Mobile Arena. “The T-Mobile Arena was designed to host iconic events such as this, and we will provide guests with an incredible experience as they enjoy this historic show.”
