Guns N’ Roses’ April Fools’ Day reunion show was no joke

No joke. GNR is back.

Guns N’ Roses made April Fools’ Day pretty frickin’ awesome for a handful of daring Los Angeles fans. 

The band announced it’d be playing its first reunion show on April 1 to kick off the Not in This Lifetime… tour Friday night at the Troubadour. Tickets were available at the old Tower Records for $10. The announcement sounded simply too good to be true. This was no joke, though.

The venue may have banned cellphones and cameras from entering the building, but that didn’t stop some enterprising attendees from somehow snapping a few photos and shooting some sick footage.

This is good news for festival junkies heading to Coachella, where the band will be headlining in just a few weeks. Expect even more shaky YouTube footage, vines, and excited tweets when the band heads to the desert. 

The Not in This Lifetime… tour is running from now until the summer. Don’t worry about having to hit up a defunct record shop to nab some seats. Tickets are available on the Guns N’ Roses website.
