A dream coming true: Guns N’ Roses seem to be ”days away” from announcing a world reunion tour.
Slash has confirmed that he and Axl have reconciled after almost a decade of arguments and they have tentatively agreed to perform together again in 2016, with the original line up of the band.
Reports have recently come out saying that the band has been offered gigs in Australia, Sweden and Portugal — although reps for the band have refused to comment.
Scott Weiland — formerly of Stone Temple Pilots and Slash’s band Velvet Revolver — gave an interview to Alternative Nation where he said: “I think that Guns N’ Roses are getting back together.”
“It was probably way overdue,” he added. “But it’s very cool at this point. You know, let some of that, sort of, negative … dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long.”
The timing of the tour would coincide with the band’s 30th anniversary!
AC/DC fans have been banned from drinking at the band's December 15 concert at Western Springs Stadium in Auckland, New ZealandRead Now

A temporary ban on liquor for AC/DC's December 15 concert at Western Springs Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand has been instituted by a local council.
Waitemata Local Board voted unanimously in support of a temporary liquor ban at their board meeting on November 10.
A senior sergeant with the Auckland police wrote a letter to the Auckland council requesting the dry zone around Western Springs Stadium, explaining that temporary liquor bans have "significantly assisted in curbing alcohol-related harm and offending in public areas." He added that an inspector also went through "the levels of intoxication and alcohol-related harm that was likely at this type of event."
The ban will be in effect for 24 hours around the arena, beginning at 6 a.m. on December 15. There will be a $250 fine for those caught consuming or in possession of alcohol. Surrounding streets in a loop around the stadium and the Auckland Zoo will also be included in the restricted area.
The soundtrack of Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck contains some unreleased home cassette recordings by the Nirvana frontman. One of the standouts is a rough demo of "Been a Son," a raucous track that had previously come out on the group's Blew EP in 1989 and, in a different form, on the Incesticide comp in 1992.

The version on what is officially titled Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings finds Cobain strumming the song's chords on an unplugged electric guitar, as he sings the melody with nonsense lyrics that map out the general idea of the tune. When he's done, he says, "bass part," and plays what he intended to show Krist Novoselic for the song. Since it's a demo, the whole thing lasts less than 90 seconds.
Listen to it below:
When the soundtrack comes out on November 13th, it will be available as a 13-track CD and a 31-song vinyl release; both will come out digitally. A CD edition of the extended version will also accompany the Blu-ray and DVD releases of the film, out the same day.
