According to the Cleveland Scene, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame will celebrate a partial reunion of GUNS N' ROSES' classic lineup by featuring the 2012 Hall Of Fame inductees in its Legends Of Rock exhibit that will open on Friday, February 26. Items on display will include a GUNS N' ROSES pinball machine owned by Slash; a black top hat with a brim that curls at edges worn by Slash; a button down madras plaid shirt with cut off sleeves worn by Axl Rose; a black Colorado Rockies short-sleeved jersey worn by Dizzy Reed; a prototype Slash guitar (a 1986 Les Paul replica, handmade by Kris Derrig); and black leather Converse high-top sneakers worn by Slash.
"We are thrilled to add GUNS N' ROSES to our Legends of Rock exhibition," says Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame president and CEO Greg Harris in a press release. "Their legacy and impact is remarkable and we are excited to share these items with fans during this historic reunion year. Slash is incredibly supportive of the Rock Hall, and by donating his Les Paul and pinball machine, he helped made this exhibit possible."
As previously reported, the reunited GUNS N' ROSES — featuring Axl Rose alongside guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan — will play on April 8 and April 9 at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas before headlining California's Coachella Music And Arts Festival on April 16 and April 23.
GUNS N' ROSES is reportedly negotiating with promoters to play as many as 25 stadiums in North America this summer. For the tour, GN'R is said to be asking as much as $3 million per show, with tickets topping out in the $250 to $275 range.
