'Phenomenal' Ticket Sales For GUNS N' ROSES' 'No Trickery!' Fuel Talk Of Third Residency, Classic-Lineup Reunion

According to Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun, ticket sales for GUNS N' ROSES' just-concluded second Las Vegas residency, "No Trickery! An Evening Of Destruction", at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino have been "phenomenal" — "so much so [that GUNS frontman Axl Rose has] begun thinking about putting the original group all back together for a global tour," a "knowledgeable insider" told Leach. "That would be the biggest-selling rock tour of all tours," the "insider" added.

Hotel executive Don Marrandino, who may return to Las Vegas as the possible future head honcho at the Hard Rock Hotel, told Leach: "They [GUNS N' ROSES] are definitely thinking of returning for another mini-run at the Hard Rock. We've already had conversations about converting one of the restaurant venues into a GUNS N' ROSES hangout with its own barbecue and hamburger lineup."

GUNS N' ROSES will release "Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live From The Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas" on July 1 via Universal Music Enterprises. The show was filmed on November 21, 2012 during the "Appetite For Democracy" tour in celebration of twenty-five years of "Appetite For Destruction" and four years of "Chinese Democracy".

The sole remaining original member of GUNS N' ROSES, Rose seemed to rule out any possibility of working with the band's former guitarist, Slash, again in a 2009 interview with Billboard. "What's clear is that one of the two of us will die before a reunion and however sad, ugly or unfortunate anyone views it, it is how it is," he said.

Slash told The Pulse Of Radio a while back how his relationship with Rose disintegrated during the final years of the original GUNS lineup. "His sort of m.o., as far as the band was concerned, over time got so exaggerated in the rock star sense or whatever and he became such a dictator and this and that and the other, that it was impossible for me to work with him, because I'm not the kind of person that takes orders, you know," he said.

During a 2009 interview with longtime friend and former road manager Del James, first published on Spinner, Rose called Slash a "cancer."
