    Guns N Roses will be kicking off their reunion tour at Coachella this year on Saturday April 16, 2016. Officially announced on January 5, 2016, fans were ecstatic to find out that GNR will be performing together once again. The band was dropping hints about the tour since mid-2015, Josh Dolan (12) “got the feeling that Guns N Roses would be coming back soon…they are epic.” Guns N Roses are a classic rock band, much like AC/DC, that is well known globally.  Giving us great hits such as “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Welcome to the Jungle”. It’s always great to see bands get back together and perform these great hits for us live.

    For some like Jazmin Lessire (11),  the GNR Tour will be a trip down memory lane. Lessire explains that “classic rock is [her] childhood. [She] can remember Guns N Roses playing on the radio at family parties making everyone happy.” This only further proves why Guns N Roses’ comeback will bring more joyful memories.

    Expect the Guns N Roses tour to come to all the big arenas because fans of classic rock will not miss out in this opportunity. Neither should you. GNR will be touring in places such as Los Vegas and Hollywood for crazy shows that will no doubt demand encores.

    Legends of rock. Guns N Roses are sure to make a mark with their 2016 reunion tour. Get ready to buy your tickets because, “one does not simply pass up a Guns N Roses concert,” said Estevan Atencio (11).
