Report: Reunion Tour Of Classic GUNS N' ROSES Lineup 'Close To Being Revealed'

According to Dish Nation, a reunion tour of the classic lineup of GUNS N' ROSES is "close to being revealed." The band will supposedly headline several major festivals in Europe and U.S. before embarking on a worldwide headlining tour to mark GN'R's 30th anniversary.

Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash recently said that he and GUNS lead singer Axl Rose had repaired their estranged relationship after nearly 20 years, immediately leading to a storm of speculation about a possible reunion of the classic GUNS lineup.

A "music insider" told Dish Nation: "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, Portugal and Sweden.

In other news, a longtime friend of ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan's wife Susan Holmes-McKagan, Brandi Glanville, told a paparazzi reporter during a night out: "GUNS N' ROSES is coming back, motherfuckers!"

Rose is the only original member of GUNS N' ROSES still in the current lineup, which has toured intermittently since 2006 and played its second Las Vegas residency last year.

The closest anyone came to a GUNS reunion in recent memory was when the band was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012. Three original members of the band, including Slash, Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler, showed up, but Axl and guitarist Izzy Stradlin were no-shows.

At the time Slash said in several interviews that the Hall Of Fame ceremony gave him a sense of "closure."

GUNS N' ROSES recently parted ways with guitarists DJ Ashba and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.
