Guns N’ Roses ‘thank’ people claiming responsibility for upcoming reunion shows
Guns N’ Roses are getting a kick out of all the musicians who are taking credit for their much-celebrated reunion. The guys have taken to Facebook to “thank” certain individuals that supposedly helped inspire them to put together a series of reunion shows with the group’s original members, Slash, Axl Rose and Duff McKagan.
“Guns N’ Roses would like to respectfully thank the many people taking credit for our upcoming shows and everything in between,” the message states. “Especially those whom we haven’t spoken to in numerous years who, through the power of media, have somehow served a pivotal, even if non-existent role. We and the fans thank you!”
The message doesn’t state exactly who Guns N’ Roses are thanking, but it’s a good guess the guys are referring to Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, who recently stated in a radio interview that he chatted with Rose in a club a few years back and pleaded with him to join back up with the other original Guns N’ Roses members.
The reunited version of Guns N’ Roses are set to perform in in Las Vegas on April 8 and 9, plus at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California, on April 16 and 23. While no other reunion shows have been confirmed, there’s lots of speculation that a major U.S. tour is in the works.
