WASHINGTON — Our “appetite for destruction” just got renewed.
Guns N’ Roses — one of the most famous rock bands of the past 30 years — announced that it’s finally reuniting at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California in April.
The GNR reunion marks the first concert that frontman Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and the rest of the band have played together in two decades after rattling off a string of hits including “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Paradise City,” “Sweet Child O Mine,” “Patience,” “Civil War” and “November Rain.”
The band was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, but Rose skipped the ceremony.
Now, Rose has confirmed the reunion news on Twitter:
Ok, ok … It’s “confirmed!” Guns N’ Roses is Headlining Coachella 2016!! See Everyone There!! ❤️

The music festival spans two weekends: April 15-17 and April 22-24.
Guns N’ Roses will headline both Saturdays of the festival.
Other acts include Ice Cube, Sia, Ellie Goulding, A$AP Rocky, Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Run the Jewels, Rancid and LCD Soundsystem, which also reunites after disbanding back in 2011.
Passes go on sale Jan. 6 at 11 a.m.
The official Guns N’ Roses Twitter account tweeted the full concert lineup:
