Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Chris Pitman has deleted information from his Twitter biography listing himself as a current Guns N’ Roses member, and he has released a tweet announcing that management has told him to not discuss Coachella or Guns N’ Roses. He also edited old Facebook posts regarding the semi-reunion with new captions, like ‘#GamesForDays.’

Matt Sorum, whose status in the reunion is unclear, evaded reporters over the weekend, covering his face when TMZ questioned him about performing at Coachella.

Guns N’ Roses began rehearsing last week for their 2016 tour. Slash shared a photo on Instagram where Frank Ferrer’s drum set is also visible.

Richard Fortus, Dizzy Reed, and Chris Pitman are all now confirmed to be part of Guns N’ Roses’ 2016 lineup, joining Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, and Frank Ferrer. This could end up being the complete lineup, unless a third guitarist joins or Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin appear as special guests. See the confirmation below, with Ferrer confirming Fortus through a retweet, a family member confirming Reed, and a Pitman confirming his involvement himself.

BILD is reporting the first Guns N’ Roses 2016 European concert date. According to their sources, Guns N’ Roses will perform in July at the Hockenheim Ring in Hockenheim, Germany.

As we have been reporting for months, the reunited Guns N’ Roses will be headlining the Coachella festival in Indio, CA in April 2016. Billboard confirmed our reports earlier today, also reporting that the band will play the new Las Vegas Arena, which is set to open in April. Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan so far are the only confirmed members.

Alternative Nation has learned that Guns N’ Roses will announce additional United States stadium tour dates in late January 2016. We previously reported on December 1st that around 25 dates were planned, and this still appears to be the case. A show at MetLife stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey (where the New York Jets and New York Giants play) is reportedly in the works.

Consequence of Sound
is reporting that Matt Sorum will be the drummer, but there have been many contradictory reports, with Frank Ferrer even hinting at his own involvement, and Steven Adler publicly lobbying for his job back just a couple of months ago.
