Guns N’ Roses Reuniting – Coachella Accommodations
HELL FREEZES OVER – Slash and Axl Rose reuniting Guns N’ Roses for Coachella
Rockers the world over are rejoicing that Axl Rose and Slash, two founding members of the great Los Angeles band Guns N’ Roses, have ended their long-running impasse and will reunite for a headlining set at Coachella and 2016 tour.
The pair, who haven’t played onstage together since 1993, have reportedly come to terms that will send them on the road to perform classics such as “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “Welcome to the Jungle” and “November Rain,” according to Billboard. No word on which other members of the classic lineup — Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler (or his replacement, Matt Sorum) — will return.
Coachella has a pedigree for coaxing much-loved acts out of retirement, or being the linchpin to plans that had already been simmering. The fest has previously hosted the reunions of Rage Against The Machine in 2007 and Outkast in 2014 — not to mention Tupac’s posthumous return to the stage in 2012. Guns N’ Roses will arrive a year after two other legendary acts, AC/DC and Steely Dan, headlined the 2015 edition. Last year’s edition drew 198,000 to the California desert, generating $84.2 million in revenue.
This year’s Coachella festival will occur over the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24. Legacy Villas Resort, a water paradise just down the road from the festival has rooms still available for the concert starting at just $199/nt., with luxurious accommodations ranging from King Suites up to 3-Bedroom/3-Bath Villas, with shuttle transportation available to and from the festival.
