Guns N' Roses will wrap up tour in San Diego this summer

Posted: Updated:

WEST HOLLYWOOD (CNS) - Reunited rock band Guns N' Roses, which got its start on the Sunset Strip in the mid-1980s, plans to give an impromptu performance Friday night at the Troubadour, an announcement that was initially met with skepticism thanks to April Fools Day.

That skepticism, however, didn't stop hundreds of fans from descending on the landmark Tower Records building at 8801 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, where tickets were expected to be distributed. One fan told KNX Newsradio that he started waiting Thursday afternoon for a shot at tickets.

At 10 a.m., the band made the news official, posting a link on Twitter and announcing details on its website, which - just to add some mystery - opens with a page reading "April Fools?"

According to the website, tickets cost $10 each and went on sale at noon. People in line were given numbered wristbands beginning shortly after 10 a.m..

The concert is expected to begin "sometime after 11 p.m.," according to the website.

Guns N' Roses, one of the biggest rock acts of the late 1980s and early 1990s thanks to hits such as "Paradise City," "Sweet Child o' Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle," recently announced plans to reunite for a summer concert tour. The tour will mark the reunion of lead singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan.

The band's only announced performance had been the headlining role at this year's Coachella music festival. But around midday Friday, the band released a list of 20 planned dates for the "Not in This Lifetime Tour."

The only Southern California show on the schedule is Aug. 22 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. The group will perform in San Francisco on Aug. 9.
