Band's original line-up are rumoured to be back together for Coachella slot and stadium tour
Axl Rose will appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s US chat show tomorrow night, with rumours that Guns N’ Roses will reunite with their original line-up still unconfirmed.
Rose is booked to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday (January 5) with fans speculating that he will announce details of the band’s future during the interview.
Rumours of both Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem (later confirmed) reforming for American festival Coachella emerged in late December, with Guns also rumoured to be setting up a 25-date stadium gig, and to be playing at Reading and Leeds festivals.
The gigs will see guitarist Slash reunite with Axl Rose alongside Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum.
The stadium gigs are expected to take place in North America, with Billboard sources saying that the band are asking for as much as $3 (£2m) million per show and tickets could cost up to $275 (£186).
The Californian festival has a history of coaxing acts out of retirement after previously hosting the reunions of Rage Against The Machine in 2007, My Bloody Valentine in 2009, Pulp in 2012 and Outkast in 2014.
Rumours of headline sets at two UK festivals in 2017 have also been doing the rounds.
Slash buried the hatchet with frontman Axl Rose in 2015 after nearly 20 years of bad blood between the pair. He declined to comment on the possibility of a reunion, having always ruled it out in the past.
Slash last commented on the ongoing speculation that he will rejoin Guns N’ Roses in May 2014, telling CBS that he would “never say never”. This was seen as progress by fans, as he had always remained adamant that he was not interested in the band.
Drummer Matt Sorum also refused to comment on rumours that the band’s classic line-up will reform. Both he and former drummer Steven Adler have said they wouldn’t like to be involved without each other.
