Guns N’ Roses’ performance at Coachella will mark the first time the band’s co-founders Axl Rose and Slash have performed together since 1993, according to Billboard. They will reunite alongside bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum. Variety reports that Guns N’ Roses may launch a North American summer tour following Coachella, which could include up to 25 shows. The band is reportedly requesting $3 million per show and upwards of $250-$275 per ticket.

LCD Soundsystem last played together in 2011 during a farewell show, and Calvin Harris performed at Coachella 2014 in front of the second largest crowd ever to attend the festival. Last year’s headliners were AC/DC, Jack White, and Drake. More than 200,000 tickets were sold for Coachella 2015 with the event grossing a record of $84.3 million.

Passes for Coachella 2016 will go on sale on January 6, at 11:00 a.m. PST. The festival will take place over two weekends on April 17-19 and 24-27 in Indio, California. The Coachella Music and Arts Festival was founded by Paul Tollett in 1999 and is organized by Goldenvoice, which is a subsidiary of AEG Live.
