99 Scenes is reporting that the reunited Guns N’ Roses were in negotiations to play at the Amnesia Rockfest, arguably Quebec’s biggest music festival. Promoters couldn’t reach an agreement though, as they thought Guns N’ Roses were asking for too much money. The band’s asking price is reportedly 4 times more than what they’ve paid any other act. The festival paid System of a Down $2 million last year, so if this report is true, Guns N’ Roses wanted at least $8 million.
Metal Sludge is reporting that Guns N’ Roses will record 1 to 2 new songs in early 2016. The band will also sign working agreements (contracts) in early January for their reunion and upcoming tour dates.
Many sources are reporting that an announcement is expected on January 5th. Former Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner liked Alternative Nation’s tweet on Friday linking to our story titled ‘Guns N’ Roses Website Switches To Original Logo, Reunion Imminent.’
A mysterious advertisement seemingly advertising Guns N’ Roses’ upcoming 2016 reunion tour is now being shown before Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The advertisement shows a crowd, but not much else. Guns N’ Roses are expected to announce a 2016 reunion tour in just days, with a Coachella appearance expected.
Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan thus far are the only members confirmed by sources and members of the media, with the status of Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler, and Matt Sorum unknown.
Duff McKagan has also shared a photo of himself playing bass with the caption ‘LAMF,’ seemingly playing to prepare for the upcoming reunion. Duff had ‘LAMF’ written on his bass amp during the Use Your Illusions tour and in the “Yesterdays” video.
