Guns N’ Roses fans, get ready to head back down to “Paradise City.” The band is back with original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan and set to embark on a reunion tour this spring and summer. Their “Not in This Lifetime” tour will run from Friday through Aug. 22 and will give listeners the chance to hear the key original members play live together for the first time since the 1990s.
News broke in January that Slash and McKagan were coming back to play with the band at the 2016 Coachella Festival. It was later revealed Guns N' Roses would take their reunion on the road and teased the cities in an announcement on Twitter on April 1.
The band played their first reunion gig at a surprise show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California, last Friday. They rolled through some of their biggest hits like “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” and “Paradise City.” The lucky few who got to attend got a preview of what’s to come this summer.
