This is not an April Fool's Day joke. Guns N' Roses really are playing a surprise warmup gig tonight at the Troubadour — the venue where the band's classic lineup of Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler played their first gig — for a few lucky fans.
Long-running rumors about the show were confirmed this morning via a press release. Tickets will be available at the old Tower Records on the Sunset Strip starting at noon for $10, cash only, one non-transferable wristband per person.
While fans wait in line, they can enjoy an “interactive GNR experience” designed by MadeWorn's Blaine Halvorson and featuring classic band attire, awards, artwork and other memorabilia.
The show's start time is listed as “sometime after 11 p.m.” Doors will open at 10 p.m.
Good luck getting those wristbands!
