Guns N' Roses are headlining Coachella 2016...probably

Rumors of a GN'R reunion, which have been circulating for months, have experienced an uptick recently in response to a number of mysterious omens, like the band's website being updated to display its original logo, its Facebook profile photo changing to a shot of an ecstatic live crowd, and the crowd footage overdubbed with "Welcome to the Jungle" that aired prior to some screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And now, Billboard has reported that the hard rock icons will be occupying the headlining slot at Southern California fest Coachella, taking place April 15–17 and 22–24. And that's not all, the band supposedly has a stadium tour in the works for this summer.

Odds are you're already shirtless with one hand on a bandana, but be warned: This has yet to be verified by representatives from the band, though Billboard does claim to have confirmation from "multiple sources." Given that Axl Rose and Slash haven't shared the stage in over 20 years, you'd be forgiven for getting a little excited. To help pass the time until the official announcement, here's a 15-minute video of Axl repeatedly asking for reggae. We just never get tired of those moves.
